The Pasadena Muir High School girls' track team showed its character after a slow start Saturday in winning the 4-A division at the Southern Section Track and Field Championships at Cerritos College. Although the Mustangs were favored in the meet's first running event, the 400-meter relay, they finished second by three-hundredths of a second to Hawthorne, which was timed in 47.11 seconds. It did not seem to be Muir's day as its anchor, Inger Miller, made up a 15-meter deficit but still finished second.

The dominance of Los Angeles City and Southern Section athletes was illustrated in last weekend's State high school track and field meet at Cerritos College. Athletes from these two sections won 18 of the 31 boys' and girls' events, and finished second in 13. In team competition, Southland teams Hawthorne and Dorsey went 1-2 in the boys' competition, and winner Pasadena Muir finished just ahead of Oxnard Rio Mesa in the girls' competition. With his most recent title, Hawthorne Coach Kye Courtney tied the state coaching record for team championships with seven, and moved into the top spot in the boys'-only category with his sixth title.

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.

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.

For the second consecutive year, the Hawthorne High School boys' sprint relay teams, which have dominated state competition the last six years, traveled across the country to compete in the Penn Relays but couldn't win a championship. After finishing fourth in the 400-meter relay last year, the Cougars finished second last Saturday on a rainy afternoon before a crowd of 27,159 at Franklin Field in Philadelphia. In a photo finish, Hawthorne lost to Camperdown High of Kingston, Jamaica, which was timed in 41.23 seconds.

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.

The Sunkist Invitational is supposed to be one of the showcases of the season for Southland prep stars, but Hawthorne High School took the opportunity to show off what it will have for the next couple of years. The Tigers, having graduated star sprinters Henry Thomas and Michael Marsh and middle-distance ace Sean Kelly from the boys' team that won the State title in 1985, got some old results Friday night.
