Lisa Fager of Mission Viejo High School stands 90 feet away from her launch site, staring down a narrow tartan runway. In her mind's eye she sees her run-up step for step. She sees her perfect running form, hair blowing in the wind, as she picks up speed. She reaches her first mark and hops off her right foot, trying to propel her lean 5-foot-10 frame up and out, farther down the runway. She starts to head back to earth. She hits perfectly on her right heel for the skip , trying to keep her momentum going forward, always forward.

Lisa Fager set the tone for Mission Viejo High School with one of the state's best girls' triple jumps of the year, 39-11 1/2, at the Orange County Girls' Track and Field Championships at Rancho Santiago College Saturday. The jump passed the meet record set in 1986 of 38-3 1/2 by Debbie Orr of Ocean View. "I didn't think I was going to jump that far," said Fager, a junior who was named field athlete of the meet. "I was just hoping to break the meet record. I'm not trying to be first in the state, I'm just trying to improve myself."

Last year, Lisa Fager set a personal best in the triple jump (39-feet 4-inches) at the Orange County Girls' Track and Field Championships at Rancho Santiago College. Fager, a junior at Mission Viejo High School, returned to the county championships at Rancho Santiago Saturday, and again, she set a personal best. But this year, her distance in the triple jump was not only good enough to break her personal record, but also the meet and Orange County records, which had stood since 1986.

Lisa Fager of Mission Viejo High School is one of the best at the triple jump, having set the county record, 39 feet 11 1/2 inches, a year ago. The record stands even though Fager, The Times' Athlete of the Week, beat that mark by nearly a foot Saturday at the Orange County girls' track and field championships. Fager jumped a wind-aided 40-10 Saturday. It would have broken her county record, but the wind was measured at 2.08 meters per second, .08 over the standard set for records.

Yes, winning is still fun. Another track meet, another athlete of the meet award for Canyon High School's Allison Franke, albeit in the field events this time. One might think that winning awards is becoming so common for Franke, a junior, that each new one has less meaning. "No, not at all," Franke said after the Orange County Girls' Track and Field Championships at Rancho Santiago College Saturday. Franke was named the field athlete of the meet.
