The 53rd annual Pasco Invite kicks off at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Edgar Brown Stadium.
The fabled meet will feature plenty of star power, including Kamiakins Ellie Heiden and Wenatchees Isaiah Brandt-Sims.
Here are 10 things to watch at this edition:
Boys 100 meters
Brandt-Sims has rarely been challenged in his signature race throughout high school, but that might change today thanks to Hanfords Ben Kelly, who has had a tremendous start to the season. Brandt-Sims is the three-time defending state champion in the event. Prelims at 10:55 a.m., finals at 1:15 p.m.
Kamiakins Heiden and Wenatchees Brandt-Sims have a chance to join elite company if they win the outstanding athlete awards Saturday.
Heiden has won two in a row, while Brandt-Sims won last year. They could both easily win again this weekend.
Only two males have won the award in consecutive years. Wilsons Aaron Williams in 1977 and 78 and Ellensburgs JaWarren Hooker in 1996 and 97.
Only one female has won the event at least three years in a row, as Rainier Beachs Ginnie Powell won it four times from 1999 to 2002.
Rogers Becca Noble won two in a row in 2004 and 2005 and Walla Wallas Seville Broussard won two in 1993 and 94.
The Braves set the meet record for points scored in 2013, racking up 101. Heiden won four events, Megan Beauchene and Elisa Grandemange each won one, and the Braves won two relays. Nearly everyone from that group returns.
Boys 1 mile
Mount Spokanes John Dressel has the sixth best time in the state in the 1,600 and top time in the 3,200. He finished third at state cross country this last fall and is the favorite in this event today. Noon.
Girls 1 mile
This could be one of the best races of the day, as Kamiakins Megan Beauchene faces off with Lakeside (Seattle) junior Andrea Masterson. Beauchene is a Washington signee, while Masterson won the state cross country title last fall. 12:30 p.m.
The top two throwers in the state are from rival high schools. Kennewicks Samantha Lester comes in as the top seed at 143-0, while Kamiakins Elisa Grandemange is at 136-8. Grandemange is the defending state champion in the event. 10 a.m.
Boys pole vault
In what could have been a showdown, Meads Braden Barranco will have to wait to face off with Richlands Larry Still until the regional meet. Still cleared 15-1 in the event last Saturday, but will be at the Oregon Relays this Saturday. Barranco has gone 15-0 this season. 9:30 a.m.
Boys 4x100 relay
Five of the top nine times in the state so far this season will be featured in the sprint relay, including Walla Walla which returns three runners from last seasons third-place finish at state. 2 p.m. (4 heats).
Boys 300 hurdles
The top time in Idaho (Lewistons Zion Stuffle, 38.35) vs. the top time in Washington (Lakewoods Andrew Stich, 39.27). 3:25 p.m. (5 heats).
Boys high jump
Bothells Keelan Halligan cleared 6-8 earlier this year, which is second in the state so far this season. With light winds predicted, Halligan could certainly go after that mark and possibly higher. 1:45 p.m.
