Jeff Wilson finally got the upper hand against Ryan Wilson. Sort of. After taking a back seat to Ryan Wilson of Agoura High in the Woodbridge cross-country invitational two weeks ago, Jeff Wilson of Newbury Park got revenge Saturday against his Marmonte League foe. Jeff Wilson timed 15 minutes 13 seconds over the three-mile course at Crescenta Valley Park to win the boys' Division II race in the Kenny Staub invitational and beat Ryan Wilson's winning time of 15:19 in the Division I race.

I'VE been publisher of the Fairfield (Iowa) Daily Ledger for more than 15 years. I've seen dozens of reporters from metro dailies and national television try to tell the story about "small town Iowa meets Maharishi TM." Carina Chocano nailed it ["A Lotus Amid the Iowa Corn," Sept. 10]. Unraveling the Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City story is hard enough for people who live here, let alone a reporter visiting for a few days. You got it. Congratulations.

Undefeated Jeff Wilson of Moorpark College and top-ranked Glendale will take decidedly different approaches in the men's race at today's Johnie O cross-country invitational. Wilson, a former standout at Newbury Park High, has won all five of his races this season by comfortable margins, but Raider Coach Manny Trevino says today's meet is more of a learning experience for his charge. "I told him not to worry about winning the race," Trevino said.

Newbury Park High senior Jeff Wilson appears to be a dream come true for the Brigham Young distance-running program. He is an A-minus student and has scored more than 1,100 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test. And perhaps most importantly, he is a devout Mormon who longs to be a Cougar. On Saturday, he proved he is worthy of a scholarship to an NCAA Division I program, finishing second in the Kinney national cross-country championships at Morley Field in San Diego. Wilson timed 15 minutes 18.

Good luck convincing Jeff Wilson that he has accomplished anything noteworthy this fall. The Moorpark College sophomore is undefeated heading into Friday's Western State Conference cross-country meet at College of the Canyons, but too much has been made of that fact, he says. "Why do you want to talk to me?" Wilson asked a reporter earlier this week.

Talk about contrasts. Midway through the second Western State Conference cross-country meet of the season at College of the Canyons on Friday, Jeff Wilson of Moorpark College appeared to be out for a nice easy training run. But 10 minutes after winning the race, Wilson was gingerly walking around with a painful grimace on his face. "It hurts so bad," Wilson said to one of the meet managers. "(This course) is worse than Mt. (San Antonio College). It's constantly going up and down. At least Mt.
