Ryan Wilson of Agoura High, the 1992 state Division II cross-country champion, has made a commitment to attend Arkansas. Wilson, who finished fifth in the 1,600 meters in last year's state track championships, made recruiting trips to Georgetown, Villanova and Arkansas before choosing the Southeastern Conference school. "I knew I wanted to go to Arkansas from the start," Wilson said. "But it was a matter of them offering me (a large enough scholarship)."

Some people might be obsessed with quick fixes and instant gratification, but don't put University of Arkansas distance runner Ryan Wilson in that company. Wilson, a 1993 graduate of Agoura High and the No. 2-ranked 5,000-meter runner in the nation entering the qualifying heats tonight of the U.S. Olympic track and field trials in Atlanta, is prepared to plug away for years in pursuit of athletic excellence.

Bonnie Jouhari and her daughter have been running for more than a year. But when you're running from a neo-Nazi Internet site that called for the outspoken housing activist to be hanged from the nearest tree, there's nowhere to hide. Terrified by the cybervenom and the campaign of threats it inspired, the two stuffed everything they could into their car 15 months ago and left their Pennsylvania home for a new beginning in suburban Seattle.

Bill Duley of Agoura High, among the most successful cross-country coaches in Southern Section history, is retiring after 16 years. Duley, 44, said he lacked the time and energy to continue to coach cross-country and track. Agoura won three consecutive state Division I girls' titles from 1990-92 and Charger runners Bryan Dameworth, Ryan Wilson, Deena Drossin and Amy Skieresz combined to win nine individual state titles under Duley.
