The night before a cross-country race, Eddie Salinas neatly lays out his Saddleback High School uniform--neon yellow shorts, white singlet, blue racing socks and shoes--on his bedroom floor. He then loads his cassette deck with heavy metal tunes, dons his headphones and goes to sleep--on the floor beside his uniform. "I'm not really superstitious, but a lot of times when I do this it gives me luck," Salinas said.

Detectives are seeking the person who made a 911 call after witnessing the fatal shooting of a 25-year-old man outside a Westchester market March 26. Heriberto "Eddie" Salinas, the father of a toddler, was shot as he drove out of the parking lot of Robert's Market at 6:20 p.m. that day, detectives said. The shooter fled east on Manchester Boulevard in a 1996 or 1997 four-door dark blue Honda Accord, detectives said. It's unclear why Salinas was targeted.

The Tustin High School girls' cross-country team defeated Woodbridge and Saddleback in a Sea View League tri-meet Thursday, answering the question: which league school has the better team?

Daniel Niednagel of Dana Hills High School didn't face much competition from Orange County runners this season. Sure, he was pushed in some races, but he was also first at the finish line. Niednagel, a senior who was undefeated by county runners, dominated the season, winning the Laguna Hills, Dana Hills, and Orange County invitationals. It was not that way in 1989, when Niednagel had strong competition from San Clemente's Mike Farrell.
