It’s finals day at Star Track XXIX. Lots of athletes and events to keep an eye on. Should be a great day.

Here are the heat sheets for today’s finals.

Here’s our coverage from Friday’s Class 4A meet.

Here’s our coverage from Friday’s 3A and 2A meets.

Here are photo galleries from the state track meet.

Because all of today’s events are final and there are no breaks built into the schedule — we’re going straight through from 8:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. — I won’t be able to update the post updates to the blog as frequently as I’d like. But I will be tweeting highlights, while I roam the infield . You can follow me on Twitter here to keep up-to-date on Star Track XXIX.
