Woodlawn, coming off a terrific relay series in a big regional meet at Virginia Tech four days previous, defended its title as Baltimore County Relays indoor champion last night at the 5th Regiment Armory.

It wasn't easy, though, the Warriors being forced to win the closing event on the program, the 1,600-meter relay, to hold rival Randallstown at bay, 56-52.

In the girls competition, Dulaney also won for the second straight year, capturing five of nine events and also finishing with 56 points, to 47 for runner-up Franklin.

At Virginia Tech, Woodlawn's seemingly endless supply of quarter-milers stretched up to turn in an 8: 11 two-mile relay and down to clock 1: 32 in the 800-meter before finishing with a 3: 23 in their specialty, the mile relay.

They weren't close to those times last night but, as coach Mike Sye explained, "The [banked composition] track there is much faster than the flat floor here and we just wanted the kids to stay sharp for the [National Guard] meet here Saturday."

Randallstown, the only team that has taken a shot at Woodlawn's county superiority this season, captured three events, the shot put, high jump and shuttle hurdles, while the winner's successes were registered in the mile and two-mile relays and the sprint medley. The teams had two second-place finishes apiece.

As expected, the Dulaney girls won the 3,200-meter relay, breaking 10 minutes (9: 58.2) and beating Franklin by 26 seconds.

But they had a tough time getting rid of Perry Hall in the mile relay, prevailing by less than two seconds in 4: 30.2.

Dulaney won the distance medley by 25 seconds, the sprint medley and the high jump. Second-place Franklin was a worthy adversary, winning the shuttle hurdles, finishing second in the sprint medley and two-mile relays and posting two thirds.
