January 27, 1993|By Steven Kivinski | Steven Kivinski,Contributing Writer

Woodlawn's Marlon Harris and Dulaney's Amanda White emerged as the most decorated athletes at yesterday's Baltimore County Indoor Track Championships at the Fifth Regiment Armory.

Harris won the 500- and 800-meter runs and ran a leg for Wood- Indoor track and field lawn's champion 1,600 relay team.

More importantly, however, the senior's efforts helped Woodlawn's boys team outlast Perry Hall for the county title, 94.5-83.

White -- who has limited her competition this winter -- appeared in top form as she paced Dulaney to the girls county title.

White picked up 30 of the Lions' 107 points, helping her team to a clear victory over runner-up Woodlawn (81) and Perry Hall (63).

White didn't shatter any records, but her times were still good enough to earn her first-place medals in the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 runs.

"We figured we would win both the boys and girls championships,but Dulaney had a real good meet," said Woodlawn coach Brian Cannon. "We felt comfortable coming in here and we feel even better now.

"Marlon did a very good job for us and it seems to be getting easier and easier for him."

Dulaney's Abby Bausman started things off for the Lions by edging Woodlawn's Joy Boykin for first place in the 55 --. %J Bausman later defeated Boykin in the 300 run with a winning time of 43.5 seconds.

Woodlawn got some help from Vincent Montoute, the champion in the 55 hurdles (7.6).

"The only thing I had on my mind today was winning," said Harris, who also anchored Woodlawn's second-place 3,200-relay team. "This is the first time we've won the counties since I've been here, and we kind of knew we were going to do it. We know this is our year."
