There was nothing Earth-shaking about Hawthorne High's performance Saturday in the CIF-Southern Section 4A track prelims at Camarillo High. The Cougars just took care of business, as usual, although Coach Kye Courtney certainly wasn't raving about what he saw. The boys' team qualified in eight events for Saturday's divisional finals at Cerritos College, while the girls qualified in six. However, Courtney wasn't pleased about their performance in...

Consider these developments: For the first time in seven years, the Hawthorne High boys' 1,600-meter relay team failed to bring home the state title. Also, the sprint relay team, after setting records in its three previous starts, was disqualified for passing the baton out of the zone. Are they disappointed in Hawthorne today? Hardly. That's because the Cougars had more than enough to stave off the competition in the CIF State Track and Field Championships on Saturday before 10,650 fans at Cerritos College.

Sometimes a little rest can be a big shot in the arm. Just ask the Hawthorne High track team. Several of the Cougars' sprinters were suffering from minor injuries in preparation for the CIF Southern Section finals last week, so Coach Kye Courtney decided to give the team a little time off. The Cougars, in turn, responded to their coach Saturday at Cerritos College by shattering the state 400 relay record with a time of 40.36. It was the sixth fastest time ever recorded nationally.

Coley Candaele of Carpinteria High may be only a junior, but he is fast becoming one of the premier middle distance runners in the nation. Candaele easily won the 800- and 1,600-meter runs in the 1-A Division last Saturday at the Southern Section divisional meet at Cerritos College, qualifying for the Masters meet Friday night at Cerritos College. In the 800, Candaele ran a career-best time of 1 minute 52.18 seconds, without much competition, finishing better than seven seconds ahead of the runner-up.

Although most of the entertainment at Friday night's Sunkist Invitational came from watching relay runners slip and fall on the slick Sports Arena track, Hawthorne High sprinter Chris Alexander provided some bona fide excitement. Alexander opened the major-events portion of the evening by winning the football 50 meters in 5.87 seconds, only .06 off the national indoor high school record.

Kye Courtney brings a simple philosophy into the track and field championship season: To win, one must first qualify. With that in mind, the Hawthorne High coach was pleased with his team's performance in the 4-A Division preliminaries Saturday afternoon before 2,500 at Gahr High. The Cougars placed eight individuals and all four relay teams in Friday's divisional championships at Cerritos College.

The Hawthorne High School boys' 400-meter relay team fell short of its goal of setting a national record, but for the second time within a week the Cougars broke the state record in the Masters track meet at Cerritos College Friday night. Hawthorne's time was 40.25, breaking the school's six-day-old state record of 40.36, set last Saturday in the Southern Section 4-A Division finals. Despite his relay time, Cougar Coach Kye Courtney says that there is room for improvement.

There is an adage that holds that getting to the top is often easier than staying there. Angela Burnham of Rio Mesa High, the top-ranked sprinter in the country by Track and Field News magazine last year, probably would agree with that maxim after losing twice at the Northridge-Alemany Relays at Cal State Northridge on Saturday.
