Almost lost among the vast collection of snapshots covering a wall in Fred Almond's classroom at Mission Viejo High is a photo of a decidedly out-of-shape Heather Sterlin. Sterlin, a senior long jumper, hates it so much she once tried to cover it with a piece of paper so nobody would see her in that sad state. Almond, Mission Viejo track and field coach, loves it because it shows Sterlin receiving a near-flawless baton pass on the Diablos' 400-meter relay team.

On one of her final days as a student at Edison High School, Shelley Taylor wheeled her car out of the parking lot and onto Magnolia Street. But instead of zooming off toward home, she slowed and pulled to the curb to gaze at the dirt oval just beyond a chain-link fence. She said she sat in her car a long time, simply staring at the Edison track. As she did, a flood of memories washed over her. She recalled four years' worth of good races and bad, happy times and sad, old friends and new ones.

Some 13-year-olds have a way with words, especially after setting national records. Consider Jill Pimley of Lyle, Wash., who set a U.S. record with 3,351 points in the youth girls' pentathlon Tuesday at the Junior Olympics track and field championships at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. How did she feel about breaking the record? "Happy," Pimley said. How long has she competed in track and field? "I don't know. A long time."

A year after a disqualification he still claims was unfair, Ato Boldon of UCLA blazed to a 10.06-second clocking in the 100-meter preliminaries Thursday in the NCAA Track and Field Championships at Eugene, Ore. Boldon, who has the fastest time in the world this year at 9.93, was disqualified in last year's NCAA semifinals for a false start. He went on to win the NCAA 200 title, then earned the bronze medal in the 100 in last year's world championships.

Aminah Haddad wants only to run. She does not want publicity or reporters hanging around asking questions. That might pose a problem if she reaches her stated goal of becoming the fastest woman in the world. To that end, she is making strides. Haddad, 13, of Long Beach, won the youth girls' 200 meters Saturday in the Junior Olympics at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. Her time of 24.04 seconds would have set a national 13-14 age group record if not for a wind reading of 2.9 meters per second.
