Rachel McCoy probably won’t be surprising anyone this season. The 6-foot-3 junior at A.B. Miller came out of the blue last June to win a state title in the girls’ high jump at Buchanan High School in Clovis

She was the only athlete to clear the bar at 5-8, and just missed on her three attempts at 5-10. After playing basketball for the Rebels over the winter, she tuned up for this track and field season by winning the high jump at the Fontana City track meet earlier this month.

Here’s a list of the Inland Empire’s other top underclassmen at last season’s state finals:

Kelly Rhines, Sr. at Los Osos – third in the girls’ 200 (24.31)

Jordie Munford, Jr., Rancho Cucamonga – second in the girls’ 300 hurdles (41.90) and fifth in 100 hurdles (14.21)

Jade Miller, Sr., Great Oak – eighth in the girls’ 300 hurdles (43.37).

Erika Reddish, Sr., Vista Murrieta – ninth in the girls’ 1,600 (4:50.52).
