Angela Burnham, the only freshman ever to win the state championship in the 100-meter dash, is one of eight Rio Mesa High athletes entered in the prestigious Sunkist Invitational indoor track meet Jan. 22 at the Sports Arena.
Burnham, a junior who ran 11.77 over 100 meters as a freshman, will compete in the 500-yard run at the Sunkist and hopes to improve on last year's third-place finish.
Also competing in the 500-yard run will be Simone Cain of Hueneme High. Cain has run 55.23 in a 400-meter race.
Travis Cooksey, a senior at Rio Mesa, is the fastest returning 800-meter runner in the state. He is entered in the 880-yard run at the Sunkist meet.
