Nineteen-month-old Lauren Ashley Holt cooed when her parents encouraged her to do the Bronco chant. "You hear that," Kevin Holt proudly exclaimed. "She was born a Bronco!" The Holts were among about 65 Denver fans who showed up at UC Irvine Saturday to watch the team practice. Arriving early, many lined the field, armed with footballs, cameras, and paper and pens for autographs. Former Denver residents Holt and his wife, Nancy, moved to San Diego in October with their pool business.

All along the way, the triangular track and field meet among Fresno State, San Diego State and UC Irvine Saturday was a nonstop, crowd-pleasing event.

Especially in the men's meet, which ended with a grand finale in the final event--the 1,600-meter relay.

You grab the rosters of the teams in the meet, look at what kinds of times/distances each competitor has been turning in recently and figure where everyone will finish. Add up the points, and you have your winner. Sometimes it even works. Fresno State's coaching staff, using a more sophisticated version of the same process, has decided that the UC Irvine men's team should win the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. championship this year.

In between sprinting, hurdling, long jumping, pole vaulting and throwing the javelin, shot and discus, UC Irvine decathlete Jeff Williams has little time for anything except sleeping, eating and studying. That means Williams, a 24-year-old senior, is the typical college athlete, right? Not quite. Williams, an English/creative writing major, enjoys espousing the virtues of poetry, quoting Walt Whitman and discussing philosophical theories with his teammates. Within the first few minutes of an interview, Williams' train of thought zips from ideas on current education--"Sometimes I think I'll start my own school and make all the kids take auto shop.
