Arkansas' Erick Walder jumped 28 feet 8 1/4 inches on Saturday at the Texas El Paso Invitational to break Carl Lewis' 13-year-old college long jump record by 4 3/4 inches. Walder, a two-time NCAA outdoor champion and a three-time indoor champion, came to UTEP hoping the 3,600-foot altitude would help his chances. "I came out here hoping to beat 28 feet, but I didn't think for a while I would do well," Walder said. "As I got rested, I got to jumping better."

Under McDonnell, the Razorbacks have accumulated NCAA titles everywhere--indoors, outdoors and in cross country. And a victory in the NCAA Indoor Championships in March was No. 18 for McDonnell, an NCAA record by a collegiate coach in any sport. The Razorbacks are favored to win No.

On the morning of the CIF state track and field championships, Phouphet Singbandith of Magnolia High School was cooling his heels in traffic school of all places. He spent six hours, beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, as part of a captive audience in La Mirada, atoning for a speeding ticket. It seemed a strange place for the state's best triple jumper to be before the biggest meet of the season. But it had been a long journey for Singbandith to get this far.
