School: Fountain Valley High Sport: Track and field Events: 100- and 300-meter low hurdles Class: Sophomore Tolson, who twisted her right ankle Tuesday during some school cafeteria horseplay, said she felt pain as she warmed up for the 100- and 300-meter low hurdle races Friday at the Southern Section Masters meet. But Tolson showed no ill effects during the races as she won both, the 100 in 14.38 seconds and the 300 in 43.25, which is the third best time in Orange County history.

The scene was repeated often last spring: There was Elinor Tolson of Fountain Valley High School pulling away from the field, running to another decisive victory in the 100- or 300-meter low hurdles. There was a pack of reporters waiting nearby to get a few insightful words on how the race progressed for Tolson. Looking shy and withdrawn, Tolson answered in quiet tones, careful never to reveal too much with her responses.

Elinor Tolson fidgeted, squirmed and tried her best to look poised and unaffected as she concentrated on the next flight of hurdles. But it was obvious that the attention focused on her--from a photographer, a reporter and the small crowd gathered to watch her practice Tuesday afternoon--was more than enough to make the La Quinta High School freshman nervous. "You're going to have to get used to it, Elinor," an onlooker suggested. "This is how it's going to be in the big time."

Like many teen-agers, Elinor Tolson often needs a little prodding to get out of bed and off to school in the morning. But last fall, Tolson needed more than prodding. She needed a bomb scare. Or an earthquake. Or a stampede of buffalo. Or anything that would make her drop her boycott of Fountain Valley High School. Tolson, the county's best hurdler, was a freshman at La Quinta High School last year.

Hurdlers Elinor Tolson of Fountain Valley High and Marquis Jones of Hawthorne have signed letters of intent with Cal State Northridge. Tolson placed fifth in the girls' 300-meter low hurdles and ninth in the 100 lows in last year's state championships. She also finished second in the 300 lows and third in the 100 lows in the Southern Section 3-A Division finals. Tolson was regarded as one of the top returning hurdlers in the state after lowering her personal bests to 14.

School: Fullerton High Sport: Softball Position: Pitcher Class: Junior In her third year as Fullerton's starting pitcher, Kennedy is still fighting to keep her team in games. Fullerton (6-5-1) is an inexperienced squad with 10 players who are either freshmen or sophomores, but the Indians have won three consecutive games. "If she's throwing well, we have a good shot at winning the game," Fullerton Coach Scott Weber said. Last week, Kennedy was overpowering.
