Harrison, a sophomore, lowered his personal- and county-best marks Friday in the 100 and 200 meters at the 37th annual Mt. SAC relays.

Mt. SAC track--Because of an editing error, the event contested by Brethren Christian's Steve Michels at the Mt. SAC Relays was incorrect in Saturday's editions. Michels is a pole vaulter.
Harrison sprinted 10.64 seconds in the 100 and 21.30 in the 200, both good for second place.
"It was a hot heat . . . a very hot heat," Harrison said of the 200 meters, which was aided by a 2.33 meters-per-second tail wind, just over the allowable 2.00.
"I was kind of nervous because I couldn't see (Marques) Holiwell because he was inside of me on the turn. I just decided to not worry and run hard." West Bakersfield's Holiwell won the 100 meters earlier in the day.
Brethren Christian's Steve Michels long jumped 15 feet 7 inches to finish second in the event.
Teammate Brandon Pacheco was edged at the finish line by Palmdale's Antonio Arce in the 1,600 meters. Pacheco ran in 4:15.78, the county's best time this season.
The senior also won the 800 meters in 1:55.40.
Esperanza senior Anton Hector, who has signed a letter of intent to play football at Texas, won his heat of the 300-meter intermediate hurdles, lowering his county-leading time to 38.42.
Edison junior Kerry O'Bric won the triple jump (37-5 1/4).
The Huntington Beach distance medley team of Travis Fisher, Chris Jackson, Jess Strutzel and Tony Trueba held off late-charging Corona to win in a time of 10:28.67.
