There will be a strong San Diego presence at Woodward Park today at the State Cross-Country Championships, though the attention of the Division I race centers on teams from the Central and Southern sections. Madera High of the Central Section will try to become the first non-Southern Section boys' team to win the state Division I cross-country championship, and the Agoura girls' team will try to break its streak of three consecutive runner-up finishes.

For the first time in his seven years as coach at Anaheim Servite, Troy Thomas allowed his 8-year-old son, Houston, to join him on the sideline. That's about the only change you can find in a championship football program in which players come and go, but the winning and teaching continues nonstop. On a cloudless Thursday night in Oceanside, the No. 1-ranked Friars found some new players to contribute while relying on a tough, determined veteran in linebacker Butch Pauu to come away with a 20-0 season-opening victory over the seven-time defending San Diego Section champion Pirates.

It was hard not to notice the disappointment in the faces of Long Beach Poly players, and it was easy to understand. The Jackrabbits have one of the finest defenses around -- and they had just been torched for a Southern Regional finals record 43 points by San Diego's Charde Houston. The Connecticut-bound forward helped San Diego to a 71-61 Division I victory over Poly, which led by eight points with less than 9 1/2 minutes remaining Saturday at the Sports Arena.

Now Laguna Hills knows what Santa Margarita already knew--that Carlsbad High has a pretty good football team. Carlsbad didn't even need its best player, fullback Pana Faumuina, to destroy Laguna Hills, 35-7, Friday night before 3,500 at Carlsbad. Faumuina, a 6-foot, 245-pound bull who has committed to California, missed the game with a hip pointer. But tailback Chad Rodgers stepped in and dashed his way through Laguna Hills' leaky defense for 193 yards and a touchdown.

San Diego Lincoln (0-0) vs. No. 2 Santa Margarita (0-0) 7:30 TONIGHT SADDLEBACK COLLEGE Santa Margarita is 5-1 against San Diego Section schools, but Lincoln could be as good a San Diego team as the Eagles have played. The Hornets were 9-3 last year and reached the San Diego Section Division III semifinals. Senior linebackers Marcel LaGrone and Da'Ron Terry are college Division I-quality players, according to Lincoln Coach Tony Jackson. Junior quarterback Jason Swanson leads the offense.
