With mostly sophomores and juniors on its roster, most prep track aficionados expected the Muir High School girls to win the CIF state title next year. In winning the state title last week at Cerritos College in Norwalk, the Mustangs finished a year ahead of schedule. The Mustangs were hardly the favorite with only five qualifiers. But Jim Brownfield, who also coached the Mustangs to a state title in 1985, said he never counted his team out. "We had doped it out and there were 10 teams that had a legitimate chance to win and we figured out a way to win," he said.

Throw the home-team, home-court, home-fan advantage out the gym door; the Cal Poly (San Louis Obispo) women's volleyball team certainly did.

The scores were 15-12, 12-15, 15-13, 15-13. Despite the fact that Cal Poly (15-1) is ranked No.

Astride sturdy mustangs Okanogan and Spurs, U.S. Border Patrol agents Darrel Williams and Justin Hefker ride along a ridgeline above the Similkameen River Valley. The only sound is the gentle plodding of the horses' large hooves -- and an occasional snort -- as they move through the pine forest just east of Washington state's Pasayten Wilderness Area with a sure-footedness that makes them a perfect fit for scaling the steep hillsides along the border with British Columbia. Williams and Hefker, both senior patrol agents, have added old-fashioned horse wrangling to their list of skills, riding once-feral mustangs as they patrol areas where the agency's boats, snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles and high-horsepower patrol vehicles can't go. The mustangs are among a dozen that the Border Patrol's Spokane Sector has bought to patrol a 308-mile section of the U.S.-Canadian border from the crest of the Cascade Range in Washington state to the Continental Divide in Montana.
