Cal State Northridge sophomore Cheree Hicks took advantage of breezy conditions Saturday, throwing the discus a school-record 188 feet, good for eighth place in the UC San Diego Invitational. The mark crushed Hicks' school record of 180-2 and led to her selection as the Big Sky Conference women's field event athlete of the week. Aretha Hill of the University of Washington won with a U.S. collegiate record of 215-3, with UCLA's Suzy Powell second at 213-5 and Seilala Sua third at 209-8.

Finally, the weights were over for UCLA's Seilala Sua. After four years of picking up heavy objects and heaving them great distances, Sua had thrown her last as a Bruin. Her collegiate career had just ended with a thud, with a season-best shotput attempt burying itself in the Wallace Wade Stadium turf Friday, long enough--56 feet 11 1/2 inches--for her sixth individual NCAA outdoor championship, unprecedented among female athletes.

UCLA sophomore Seilala Sua won her second consecutive NCAA discus title Wednesday at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Buffalo, N.Y. Sua, with a winning throw of 210 feet 8 inches, outdistanced the rest of the field by more than 18 feet. She won the discus and shot put as last year's NCAA meet. Sua's victory was worth 10 points in the Bruins' bid to end Lousiana State's 11-year reign as women's champion.

Seilala Sua is 6 feet tall, weighs 240 pounds and moves as lightly as a ballet dancer. She is balanced and smooth with a straight back and muscled arms and legs. Sua throws things for the UCLA women's track team. The shotput, the discus, the javelin, the hammer. The senior from Cooper City, Fla., came to UCLA so she could learn to throw things farther than anyone else and it is Sua's hope, her expectation, that she will throw the discus for the United States at the Sydney Olympics.

On a day when there weren't many points available and qualifying was the goal in most events, the UCLA and USC track and field teams got some big performances from their stars Thursday at the NCAA championships before 5,805 at Bronco Stadium. Seilala Sua earned 10 points for the Bruin women, becoming the fourth UCLA woman to win the NCAA shotput title in the 1990s.

The minute he walks onto the track, Obea Moore knows all eyes are on him. The highly touted junior sprinter from Pasadena Muir has renewed interest in the sport in the Southland to the degree that hundreds of fans chanted his name before he ran his first race Saturday night before 7,500 at Arcadia High. The pressure and attention, which has noticeably increased the last two years, may be getting to be a bit of a distraction.

The UCLA men's track and field team extended its dual-meet winning streak to 21 against USC by the barest of margins Saturday at Cromwell Field. The Bruins edged USC, 82-81, before a standing-room-only crowd by outscoring the Trojans, 24-8, in the final four events.
