Marquis Profit's victories in the 110-meter high hurdles and 300 intermediate hurdles in the Pasadena Games at Pasadena City College on Saturday helped Pasadena Muir move up two spots in the rankings. Los Angeles Loyola drops two positions this week and could fall further if distance runner Mark Matusak's foot injury keeps him sidelined for an extended period of time.
