In June of 1989, Greg Whiteley left Brown University in Providence, R.I., determined to see the world and, at the same time, find his place in it. Whiteley had good reason to think the globe could be his for the taking. He was 22, with an Ivy League degree in economics and five NCAA All-American honors in track and field and cross-country. First, the compass pointed to Europe. He spent nearly a year based in Denmark and other cities--London, Oslo, Stockholm--running international track meets.

Unlike many young runners, Greg Whiteley never got caught up in the popular, but often damaging, pursuit of running endless miles. Run 80-mile weeks? Whiteley, 21, wouldn't hear of it. Instead, Whiteley, a former University High School star and the most recent Orange County prep to run under nine minutes for 3,200-meters (8:57.4 in 1985), developed a successful track career on a basic virtue. Patience. It has helped Whiteley become one of the nation's best 5,000-meter runners.

One week from today, some of Orange County's top high school track and field athletes might wake up with a sad and perhaps sudden realization that, as graduating seniors, their high school track careers have finally come to an end. No more Orange County championships, no more Southern Section meets, no State championships. For many, their athletic futures will begin in the fall when they enter that exciting yet somewhat intimidating world of collegiate competition. Greg Whiteley, a 1985 graduate of University High and the last county prep athlete to run less than nine minutes in the 3,200 meters, remembers his exit from high school sports as an unfortunate one. A throat virus knocked Whiteley out of the final two weeks of his senior season, forcing him to miss the State meet, where he was a favorite in the 3,200.
