For many athletes competing in the U.S. Olympic track and field trials at Cal State Sacramento, making the team is the ultimate goal. It doesn't matter if they finish first, second or third as long as they make the team. Shelia Burrell doesn't agree with that attitude. Burrell, a former Reseda resident who trained under Cal State Northridge assistant coach Jeff McAuley in 1998 and '99, wanted to win the heptathlon Saturday. That's why she ran the first lap of the 800 meters in a sizzling 58.

Shades of Dan O'Brien? DeDee Nathan, the world heptathlon leader, didn't think the same fate that befell O'Brien in the 1992 U.S. Olympic Trials would happen to her after failing to clear a height in the high jump in the U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Thursday. "I'm not worried," Nathan said after three misses at 5 feet 7 1/4 inches. "I'll finish [the two-day, seven-event competition] and be in the top three."

For the first time in 12 years, the U.S. baseball team beat the world champion Cubans in a major competition, scoring five runs in the ninth inning Wednesday for a 10-5 victory at the Pan American Games. For the Cubans, who split two exhibition games with the Baltimore Orioles earlier this year, it was a stunning defeat. They had not lost to the U.S. in such an event since the 1987 Pan-Am Games at Indianapolis.

Sprinter Ato Boldon simply picked the wrong time to be impatient. With UCLA's plan for winning the NCAA men's outdoor track and field title going exactly as planned up to that point, Boldon was ruled to have false-started in his 100-meter semifinal, ending any realistic chance the Bruins had of upsetting three-time defending champion Arkansas at Tom Black Track.

A knee injury sustained in the high jump left Shelia Burrell, a former resident of Reseda, in 30th place in the heptathlon after the first day of competition Saturday at Sydney. Burrell, an assistant track coach at Cal State Northridge last year, was in third place with 1,080 points after running the 100-meter high hurdles in 13.30 to open the competition. But she injured her knee on her first--and only attempt--in the high jump when she caught a spike on the high jump apron.
