Moorpark College's quest to claim conference championships in men's and women's track can take a big step forward Friday when the Raiders host Bakersfield and Citrus in a minimeet.
The meet is really a showdown between Moorpark and Bakersfield, the only two remaining undefeated teams. The regular-season champion earns 20 points going into the Western State Conference finals later this month; the second-place team gets 18 points.
``It's just a little bit of a head start going into conference finals,'' Moorpark coach Doni Green said. ``Last year our girls finished first, but previous to that I always thought it was kind of a dumb rule. Now I don't think it's too bad.''
For the Raiders' men to do well, Green said they will need strong performances in the sprinting and throwing events because Bakersfield is strong in distance events.
``A lot of these events are going to be very competitive,'' Green said. ``I really see the distance events as kind of a toss-up.
