Clancey, Miglin Shine On College Track
Riverbank High graduates Kelly Clancey and Marissa Miglin have made the most of their college track and field careers in recent weeks. Both have emerged as big-time contributors for their respective programs at the next level.

With Clancey leading the way in several events, the Chico State women rallied to a second straight California Collegiate Athletic Association title during the Thursday to Saturday conference championships at Stanislaus State in Turlock.

Clancey improved upon her NCAA Championship qualifying mark in the two-day, seven-event heptathlon, with a second place finish (4937 points). She also finished fifth in the 400-meter hurdles, fourth in the 1600 relay, and seventh in both the long jump and javelin.

She and other Chico Wildcats will be competing in the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships on May 26 to 28 at Stanislaus State.

Marissa Miglin

The Bruin grad and Modesto Junior College sophomore led locals to a second place finish at the Big-8 conference championships this month after placing third (1600 relay), fourth (400 hurdles) and fifth (100 hurdles) in her events. She went on to land an impressive fifth place (finals qualifying) time of 66.46 seconds in the 400 hurdles at the NorCal Trials on Friday. She was 11th in the 100 hurdles and also qualified for finals with a fifth place effort in the 1600 relay (4:04.43).

The NorCal Finals are on Friday, May 13 at MJC.
