For the better part of two decades, the Old Mill girls have dominated the local track and field scene. The Patriots have put together remarkable strings of 17 straight county and 12 straight regional titles.When it comes to the state meet, however, they've usually had to look up to perennial Prince George's County power Eleanor Roosevelt, winner of six of the past seven Class 4A crowns.Yesterday, on the opening day of the 50th annual state track and field championships, top-ranked Old Mill found itself in a similar position, sitting in third place behind Roosevelt and Quince Orchard after five events.

Tim Wunderlich doesn't take any track and field lightly. Then again, running from the long jump to the shot put to the discus to the pole vault and back doesn't give the North Carroll senior any opportunity to dawdle. "It's hard for me to go through the motions because I'm running around," Wunderlich said at last night's Monocacy Valley Athletic League's Chesapeake Division championships at North Carroll High School in Hampstead. "It's meets like this that I learn what I can do." Wunderlich can do plenty as he captured the shot put (51 feet, 7 1/2 inches)

Shannel Shivers first came to an Aberdeen track and field practice in the eighth grade. She wanted to get a feel for becoming a high school hurdler, but she got off to a bad start. Shivers crashed into the first hurdle and fell during an early drill. She couldn't make it over any of the hurdles in that drill. That experience was the main reason she skipped the sport the following spring, but Aberdeen coaches convinced her to try again. The only difference in 10th grade was that Shivers didn't need to come anywhere near the hurdles.

Lindsay Grigoriev seemingly never spins out of control, and she certainly rarely stands still. But earlier this month, that's exactly what was going on. The senior from Atholton High in Columbia was just a week removed from setting a record in the discus at the prestigious Penn Relays for the second year in a row, but she found herself facing the prospect of failing to make the final in the same event at a local track and field meet. At the Gator Invitational at Reservoir High in Fulton on May 3, Grigoriev had fouled on her first two attempts, spinning out of the circle.

Maketa Ruffin sets some pretty high goals for herself. By the time she goes to college next fall, the New Town senior wants to throw the discus 150 feet and hurl the shot put 45 feet. Reaching those goals during summer competition with the Randallstown Track Club would put her in some pretty distinguished company. The area records for the high school season are 160 feet, 5 inches for the discus and 44 feet, 1 1/4 inches for the shot put. But Ruffin has proved she can make progress quickly.

Breaking just one county boys track record is the stuff of dreams for most athletes.Breaking two county records is more far-fetched.But Oakland Mills' Andrew Long broke two records this spring -- on the same day.Long, who is scheduled to perform at the Penn Relays today, can't remember doing anything differently to get ready for an April 7 tri-meet against Howard and Glenelg.But that's the day he set a county shot-put record of 57 feet, 7 inches, breaking former teammate Brian Howard's 55-3 made in 1995.

You might say that Nick Fambro doesn't have a one-track mind.And for that, his coaches and teammates at Oakland Mills couldn't be happier. That's because the rising track star can't seem to decide which event he should focus on.Not only is Fambro heavily favored to win the 110-meter high hurdles and 300-meter intermediate hurdles at the Class 1A state meet next Friday and Saturday at UMBC for the defending champion Scorpions, but he has shown tremendous promise...
