Athletes from all area schools will be competing in Saturday's Class 3 and Class 4 sectional meet at Excelsior Springs High School for a berth in next week's state meets in Jefferson City.

Blue Springs' boys, which rolled to a district title last week, stand a good chance at winning a sectional crown, as well. Among the area's top athletes are throwers Carlos and Khalil Davis and distance runner Stephen Mugeche from Blue Springs, hurdler Tyler Blair from Blue Springs South, jumper Lexi Hart from Truman, thrower Asia Cole from Fort Osage and hurdler Chelsea Gabriel and middle distance runner Daniel Mahurin from Grain Valley.

Competition begins at 11 a.m.
