The Corona del Mar senior said she might skip the state meet after she heaved the disc 139 feet. "The thing is, [next]

Tony Altobelli CERRITOS - So much for that "glad to just finish in the top five" thing for Newport Harbor High's track and field threesome of Trevor Jones, Amber Steen and Krista Dill. The trio not only fared well enough at Friday's CIF Southern Section Masters Meet to qualify for next week's State Preliminaries, but they did so in rather convincing style. The rest of the state will have to keep up with Jones in both the 110-meter high hurdles and the 300 intermediate hurdles.

Troy Hardy camped out in one of the coolest areas at Mt. San Antonio College, site of last week's CIF Southern Section Divisional Track and Field finals. Underneath a canopy, away from the track, Hardy escaped the heat. He sat next to three coaches and rested before his late afternoon event, the 300-meter hurdles in the Division 3 final. When word leaked of the first CdM athlete to qualify for the next meet, Masters, Hardy stayed calm. While CdM's coaches congratulated Matt Hurst for recording the meet's fifth fastest time in the 400-meter sprint, a 48.08-second effort, breaking a CdM school record, Hardy focused.

Rick Devereux Jasmin Day has some big shoes to fill, but her performance Saturday in the CIF Southern Section Division III finals at Cerritos College went a long way in accomplishing such a task. Day, a high jumper from Costa Mesa High, has an older sister, Sharon, who holds the Southern Section record in the high jump with a leap of 6-2 and competed at the Home Depot Center invitational at the same time Jasmin was competing at the CIF finals. The younger Day said her older sister told her to make her proud, so the lil' sis went out and jumped 5-8 to capture not only the gold medal in Division III but also the top qualifying spot for the CIF Masters Meet on Friday.

Richard Dunn LONG BEACH - Corona del Mar High boys track and field athlete Chris Ringstrom opened the spring competing exclusively in field events. Then, early in the season, CdM Coach Bill Sumner told Ringstrom that the team was "in a bind this year" and needed him to help in the sprints. "Last year as a freshman, Ringstrom competed in no running events ... but this year we talked him into doing the sprints," Sumner said. Sumner added that Ringstrom began competing in the 200 "about 30 or 40 days ago" and, now, will be on center stage in that event next Saturday in the CIF Southern Section Division III Finals at Cerritos College.
