From the time that she first started competing in track and field at age 6, Janeene Vickers says she considered herself primarily a sprinter. So when she first took up the hurdles when she enrolled at Pomona High School, Vickers said, she was not exactly enamored of the event. Vickers said it was not until her senior year in high school that she started to shift her emphasis. "That was when I was converted to the idea of being a hurdler," she said.

The UCLA men's track team's streak of victories in dual meets was stopped last week at 42, but the Bruins remain unbeaten in 43 meets dating to the end of the 1984 season. In a triangular meet with dual scoring last week, the Bruins defeated Houston, 97-57, to tie the school record of 42 straight dual-meet victories, set from 1972 through 1976. But UCLA tied Louisiana State, 77-77, and had to win the last event, the 1,600-meter relay, to gain the tie. The Bruins won the triangular with 73 points to 70 for LSU and 49 for Houston.

Pomona High School hurdler and sprinter Janeene Vickers is making disbelievers out of everybody. Herb Robinson, Pomona track coach, says he has received numerous inquiries from college recruiters asking if Vickers is a senior. "When I say she's a junior they say 'no way.' They can't believe it." It is difficult to believe when you consider her dominance this season. "She's a coach's dream and an opponent's nightmare," Robinson said.
