UCLA's Steve Lewis has reinjured a hamstring muscle and is questionable for the NCAA track and field championship next week in Provo, Utah. Lewis, the Olympic gold medalist in the 400 meters, strained a hamstring in a workout Tuesday. "The injury isn't quite as severe as we thought it was," said UCLA Coach Bob Larsen, who added that Lewis' status won't be determined for a few days. UCLA is the two-time defending NCAA champion. However, if Lewis is unavailable, the Bruins' chances of repeating are slim.

Steve Lewis was too weak to join the celebration Saturday night, but nothing could wipe away his smile. The Lakewood girls' volleyball team had just advanced to its first Southern Section semifinal since 1982 with a thrilling 25-16, 22-25, 22-25, 25-21, 15-11 victory over visiting Valencia and Lewis, who has coached the Lancers the last seven years, remained in his chair alongside the bench.

Track star Steve Lewis figures he has done pretty well for himself. Lewis, who just turned 19 and was a freshman at UCLA last year, has done these things that so-called experts say should not have been possible: --Placed second in the 400 meters at this year's National Collegiate Athletic Assn. meet--a competition in which older, more experienced runners tend to do better. --Run the 400 in 44.11 seconds, a world junior record, and, at the time, the second-fastest at sea level.

The lengthy criminal investigation into the causes of Orange County's historic bankruptcy all but ended Friday when the state attorney general's office filed a motion saying the case against Auditor-Controller Steve E. Lewis should be dropped. In a 17-page motion filed on the eve of the bankruptcy's third anniversary, Senior Assistant Atty. Gen. Gary W. Schons asked the Los Angeles judge with jurisdiction over the case to dismiss the charges against Lewis "in the furtherance of justice."

Displaying skill beyond his 19 years, Steve Lewis, a UCLA sophomore, outleaned the more experienced world record-holder, Butch Reynolds, at the finish line Wednesday in the Olympic Stadium to become the 400-meter champion and the second-most famous Lewis of the Games. He won in 43.87 seconds, the third-fastest time ever and only one one-hundreth of a second behind the 20-year-old Olympic record of 43.86 set by the United States' Lee Evans in Mexico City.

When Steve Lewis won the gold medal in the 400 meters at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, his coach, John Smith, was both ecstatic and apprehensive. While celebrating, Smith recalled recently, he was struck by the thought, "What do I tell him now?" After all, Lewis, as a 19-year-old UCLA freshman, already had attained the ultimate goal in his sport, something that Smith had been unable to do almost two decades earlier because of an injury--despite being one of the world's great quarter-milers.

The Mt. San Antonio College Relays traditionally are considered the first significant outdoor track and field meet of the season, but there is invariably disagreement about what they signify other than a sunny, low-anxiety afternoon among the grass-covered hills and walnut groves. The 37th annual edition Saturday was no exception.

Orange County government will undergo a sweeping leadership shake-up with next year's election--a changing of the guard that promises to bring fresh faces and conflicting ideas to a bureaucracy still recovering from its 1994 bankruptcy. Voters are expected to face tough choices and hotly contested races for many countywide elected offices that usually produce sleepy campaigns and only token challenges to the incumbents. Next June, the county will elect its first new sheriff in 24 years.

Appeals courts work at their own pace, so it is uncertain when the next decision will come in Orange County's case against its auditor-controller, Steve E. Lewis, over alleged transgressions leading up to the county's bankruptcy. It would be good if the decision would come soon, so the county can save money and sort out what's going on in attempts to assign accountability for the fiscal disaster. Last week the 4th District Court of Appeal ruled that Dist. Atty. Michael R.

Supervisor William G. Steiner and Auditor-Controller Steve E. Lewis, two of the three officials facing misconduct charges for allegedly failing to head off the county's bankruptcy, are nearing the spending limits set by the Board of Supervisors for their legal defense. Steiner said Monday that he is within $10,000 of reaching his $250,000 cap but does not expect to request additional funds until at least August, when a state appeals court decides whether his case should go to trial.
