The Huntington Beach High boys' track and field team had one goal entering the 2011 season: win the Sunset League championship.
If they accomplish their goal, the Oilers would be end a 28-year drought. That goal is still within reach, but they will need to come up with a big finish to end the regular season.
In a league tri-meet March 30 at Huntington's Sheue Field, the Oilers downed Los Alamitos, 70-29, and in a key matchup against Fountain Valley that would establish a league front-runner, it was the Barons who emerged from a close matchup, 70-67.
In the girls' tri-meet, Fountain Valley scored a 78-58 win over Huntington and Los Alamitos topped the Oilers, 85-51.
The outcome of the Fountain Valley-Huntington boys' meet came down to the final two events of the day, the 3,200 meters and 4 by 400 relay. The Barons scored nine points in the 3,200 to get the win over the Oilers, who earlier didn't register a point in the long or triple jumps events, Huntington Coach Clim Moore said.
