On the dusty trails outside the city limits of Alamosa, Colo., more than 7,500 feet above sea level, Shanon Winkelman ran at the back of a pack of the area's best distance runners. He was quiet, too wide-eyed because of the scenery and the fast company he kept to speak up. Each day last summer, it was the same. At the front of the pack ran the best-known of Alamosa's 6,830 citizens, Pat Porter, The Athletics Congress' cross-country champion a record eight consecutive times from 1982 to 1989.

As a sophomore at Servite High School, Brian Criss would volunteer to catch during batting practice. It was a nice change from fielding ground balls at third base, where he was a part-time starter. But, more and more, Criss found himself behind the plate during batting practice. In fact, it became a running joke between him and Coach Mike McNary. "Coach McNary would tell me that I better keep the gear on the rest of the season," Criss said. "He said they might need me to catch."

As the Southern Section cross-country preliminaries came to a close Saturday, a collective sigh of relief seemed to echo through the hills surrounding Mt. San Antonio College. As expected, Orange County's top teams--Corona del Mar and Dana Hills (boys) and Santa Ana Valley and Villa Park (girls)--passed another test, placing fourth or better in their heats to earn their way to the Southern Section championships next Saturday. But pre-race nerves of coaches and athletes seemed skittery.

Here's what they were saying in the '80s: "This is a big rivalry with Villa Park. But there's something really big at stake tonight--the bragging rights at the local McDonalds." --Mike Zeller, Canyon football coach, before a game against the Spartans. October, 1980. "We're just a bunch of surfers from Huntington Beach." --Bill Workman, Edison football coach, in the midst of the Chargers' 32-game winning streak. September, 1981. "My head spins when I think about it."

If the four distance runners of Corona del Mar, Valencia or Dana Hills high schools are looking for solace after Friday night's 4 x 1,600-meter relay at Mt. San Antonio College, maybe they ought to remember what forces they were dealing with: A cold wind, a driving rain and, the strongest force of all, the El Monte Arroyo distance squad.

For those who scoff at the notion that cross-country is a team sport, Terrence Mahon of La Habra High School would like a moment to counter-scoff. "People don't understand. It's a lot harder (for a top individual) to race without a strong team," said Mahon, who ran for a good team, but certainly not a great one. The Highlanders tied for second place in the Freeway League. Step inside Mahon's racing flats for a spell.

It took Shanon Winkelman of Marina High School just 9 minutes and 23.8 seconds Friday night at the Sunkist Invitational to run what may have been the best race of his life. It may take him nine days to recover. Not physically, but emotionally. Running in one of the greatest high school two-mile fields in the Sunkist's 29-year history, Winkelman scored a coup by placing third in the field of nine. Winkelman was seeded second from last.
