The Northern California Community College Track and Field Trials kick off a weekend of championship competition at CSM.

On the men’s side, double conference event champion Evan McDaniel ranks No. 2 in the nation on the junior college circuit in the shot put (55-10 ¼). He is No. 6 in the discus throw and No. 10 in the javelin throw in the NorCal rankings.

Conference javelin champion Zeke Edwards ranks No. 5 in Northern California and conference hammer champion Josh Uikilifi (Mills) ranks No. 3.

Uikilifi is No. 3 in the state in the shot put (53-1 3/4).
