Doriane Lambelet resigned as the counsel to the board.

Four members of The Athletics Congress' drug-testing custodial board, which monitors track and field's extensive domestic drug-testing program, have resigned, apparently in protest. The four--Edwin Moses, Harvey Glance, Linda Sheskey and Doriane Lambelet--sent their resignations to TAC offices in Indianapolis via fax machines late Wednesday. On Thursday, a TAC spokesman confirmed the action but said the organization would have no comment.

Edwin Moses said Friday that he resigned from a drug-testing custodial board earlier this week because he was tired after 1 1/2 years of intense work. "I resigned because I'm exhausted and drained," Moses said. "I did not resign to make a political statement." On Wednesday, Moses, Harvey Glance, Linda Sheskey and Doriane Lambelet sent resignations to The Athletics Congress, which governs track and field.

Last month, leaders of the organization that governs U.S. track and field were boasting about their innovative, year-round drug-testing program. In a telephone news conference May 9, Ollan Cassell, executive director of The Athletics Congress, said the program was unsurpassed. "We feel that our drug-testing program is currently the best in the United States," Cassell said. "It is probably the most comprehensive in the world."

Cal State Northridge distance runner Darcy Arreola and just about any sprinter from Rio Mesa High appear to have an affinity for the Mt. San Antonio College Relays. Arreola placed second in the women's invitational 1,500 meters, the third consecutive year she has finished in the top three at Mt. SAC, while, for the third consecutive year, a Rio Mesa sprinter--this time it was Marion Jones--set a nation-leading mark in the girls' 400 meters.

She is in the midst of her seventh competitive track and field season, yet Darcy Arreola of Northridge is still learning about racing tactics at the national class level. Her latest lesson came in The Athletics Congress championships at Cerritos College in Norwalk last week. After cruising to a third-place time of 4 minutes 16.39 seconds in a 1,500-meter qualifying heat Friday, Arreola appeared capable of trimming her 4:14.15 personal best by a considerable amount in Saturday's final.

Two-time world champion high hurdler Greg Foster said he lost his motivation when he read in the newspaper Sunday morning that world record-holder Renaldo Nehemiah had withdrawn from the Pepsi Invitational at UCLA's Drake Stadium because of a hamstring injury. Perhaps Foster should have looked in the lane next to him.

The Athletics Congress, the governing body for U.S. track and field, is both flawed and inconsistent in its drug enforcement policies, according to confidential documents obtained last week by The Times. Despite its publicly stated hard-line approach to drug use, the organization gives the impression of being confused and unsure in this area, even when it comes to its own policies. Among the things the documents show is that TAC officials have: --Selectively enforced drug positives.

At a time when the United States dominated track and field, the nation's Olympic trials were considered by some as the world's best meet, even more competitive than the Olympics. Today, long after the rest of the world has caught or passed the United States in many events, the U.S. trials still represent the world's best meet from 400 meters down. That is particularly true in the men's competition, although the U.S. women sprinters no longer bow to anyone, not even the East Germans. The U.S.

It was Mary Teresa Decker Slaney's first Mother's Day as a mother, so, while she was out serving as honorary starter at a race in New York, Richard Slaney bundled up their nearly year-old daughter, Ashley Lynn, with the arms that once made him England's strongest discus thrower, went shopping in Manhattan and bought his wife a purse.
