She leaned against a chain-link fence, unable to stand under her power. She struggled to catch her breath as well-wishers hugged her, patted her on the back and shook her hand. Yet Sheena Johnson of UCLA was reveling in the moment Friday night at the NCAA track and field championships at Cal State Sacramento after winning the women's 400-meter low hurdles in a meet-record 54.24 seconds. The time broke the previous meet record of 54.

When advocates for the president's healthcare law strategized about how to reach the uninsured, they knew exactly whom to tap: mothers who could spread the word about the law's benefits, sign up their younger children and nudge their twentysomethings to take part. But beyond the widely publicized problems with the federal website, low-tech challenges also are complicating that part of the drive to sell the program - even in California, where the state website is running more smoothly and officials are fully behind the push.

Shannon Wiebelhaus of Rio Mesa was regarded as one of the Valley-area's top sprint prospects as a freshman in 1986. Although she was overshadowed by teammate and state 100 champion Angela Burnham, Wiebelhaus' personal bests of 12.2 seconds in the 100 meters, 25.8 in the 200 and 57.78 in the 400 boded well for her. But she failed to improve her times in her sophomore and junior years, ultimately concentrating on the 300-meter low hurdles and...

It's not often that two of the top 10 competitors in the nation find themselves in the same qualifying heat of the Southern Section Division I track and field preliminaries. It is even more rare when the individuals race each other as if the state title were at stake rather than two of nine spots in the following week's championships.

Her perpetually optimistic coach says her times are right where they should be at this point in the season, but Buena High junior Stacy Hebert is not satisfied. After running 44.76 seconds to win the 300-meter low hurdles in the Pasadena Games on March 25, Hebert figured to have dipped under 44 seconds by now. But as she enters the Ventura County track and field championships at Camarillo High this afternoon, that 44.76 clocking remains her season best. "It has been frustrating," Hebert said.

Her intense work ethic made her a model athlete the past four years, her coach says, but Bridie Hatch of Nordhoff High has a confession to make. There were times during the previous three track seasons when she wanted to be relaxing on the beach with her friends rather than working out under a hot sun. "It was hard to be out there by myself when I saw my friends heading to the beach," Hatch said.

Forget the school records, moving to third on the all-time region list in the 300-meter low hurdles and leading the state in that event for the first two months of the season. When senior Frances Santin of Taft High looks back on the 1998 track and field season, the accomplishment she'll cherish most is helping the Toreadors win their first City Section girls' championship.

A dream two years in the making will become a reality tonight when Frances Santin of Taft High runs in the girls' 300-meter low hurdles in the Arcadia Invitational at Arcadia High. The junior is the defending City Section champion in the event and is undefeated in seven races this season. But two years ago, when Coach Mel Hein urged her to focus on the hurdles, Santin never expected to become one of the favorites in arguably the most prestigious regular-season invitational in the nation.

Michelle Perry's mind says no, but her performances say it's so. The junior from Quartz Hill High doesn't consider herself a hurdler, yet in those events she is among the top performers in Southern California. Whether she's among the state's best hurdlers will be determined over the next two days when she runs in the 100-meter high hurdles and the 300 lows in the State championships at Cerritos College.

Eleazar Hernandez of Moorpark College will run in the men's 10,000 meters tonight in the State junior college track and field championships at Cerritos College. That much is known. Whether he'll run in the 5,000 on Saturday remains to be seen. "We'll see how he feels after the 10,000 before we make a decision on the 5,000," Moorpark Coach Manny Trevino said. "If he feels OK, then he'll run. But if he's hurting, I don't want him to run the 5,000. It's not worth it."

Scott Guerrero of Rio Mesa won the 800, placed second in the 400 and anchored the Spartans' victorious 1,600-meter relay at Santa Barbara City College. Guerrero led a one-two Rio Mesa finish in the 800, running 1:59.4, ahead of Mark Gruber's 1:59.9. In the 400, Guerrero had the same time as winner Kye Wilson of Hueneme but lost by inches. Eric Thomas and Patrick Van Scoy also won events for Rio Mesa, the four-time defending league champion. Thomas tied his personal best in the high jump at 6-8, and Van Scoy took the shotput at 52-8 1/2. In the girls' meet, Angela Burnham of Rio Mesa won the 100 in 11.7 and 200 meters in 25.0.

Staci Leach and Sharon Manship. For four years they have been synonymous with the girls track program at Thousand Oaks High. This year, however, the 5-10, 135-pound Manship has attracted more attention than the 5-7, 125-pound Leach. But Leach emerged from Manship's shadow at Saturday's Southern Section championships at Cerritos College by defeating her teammate in the 300-meter low hurdles. It was the first time Leach had defeated Manship in the event this year. Leach's winning effort of 42.
