Last place. Back there behind the stragglers. Ten, sometimes 20 meters behind the leader. That's a place to stay connected. Earth and feet clapping together, pounding out a rhythm like a Sunday choir. And back there, in last place in the 1,500-meter final at the U.S. Olympic trials, the power grows in Jim Sorensen, until it's surging through his thighs, and he's rushing like the wind around a turn.

Re "Violent Crime in U.S. Down Again," Aug. 28: Pre-Y2K gun sales soar, but violent crime plummets 10.4%. Yet the Democrats in Sacramento want to register my rifle. I have only one question: Why? More people drown in buckets each year than are killed by semiautomatic military-style rifles. Obviously, registration is a precursor to confiscation. The founding fathers were quite clear--the citizenry is to remain armed and vigilant. Since 60 million people were killed by their own governments last century (remember Yugoslavia in the 1990s?

Darcy Arreola left little doubt that she was the class of the women's field in Saturday's California Collegiate Athletic Assn. cross-country championships at Cal State Bakersfield. But the men's race was a little closer. So close, in fact, that there's still some question as to who won. Arreola claimed her second CCAA title, finishing the 5,000-meter course in 16 minutes, 43 seconds to easily outdistance Jamie Park of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, who placed second in 16:58.

For the first time in 14 years, the Cal State Northridge men's cross-country team has a legitimate shot at winning the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. Division II title, but the Matadors will not be favored. That distinction will fall to top-ranked Edinboro (Pa.) University, the three-time defending champion, and second-ranked South Dakota State, a perennial top-three finisher and the 1985 champion.
