When Jose Dilag came to America with his family from the Philippines nine years ago, the language change wasn't the only barrier he had to overcome. Being the new kid on the block in an unfamiliar urban city was a tough transition for Dilag, who was 9 when he left his hometown of Dumangus on the island of Iloilo.

Victoria Herazo of Sherman Oaks can feel pretty good about the silver medal she won in the 10-kilometer walk Friday night at UCLA's Drake Stadium. And though she lost by more than one minute, it took American and Festival records to beat her. Herazo placed second to Debbi Lawrence of Kenosha, Wis., in the competition. Lawrence finished in 45 minutes 28.4 seconds to shatter her American and Festival records. Herazo finished in 46:37.9.
