Franklin star pole vaulter Olivia Gruver likes her space prior to taking flight -- a place where she can keep to herself and focus. She will seek that solitude before the Class 3A state outdoor track and field championship at Morgan State on Friday, but finding it wasn't so easy in Philadelphia on April 24. On the day she competed in the prestigious Penn Relays for the first time, Gruver woke up bothered by a cold. After sleeping most of the way, the junior arrived at historic Franklin Field at the University of Pennsylvania and couldn't find her high school coach, Paul Hannsen.

Victor Gilreath has become quite adept at multitasking. For the past three weeks, the Western Tech senior has had to compete in the high jump and shot put simultaneously - first at the Baltimore County championships and then at the Class 1A North regional meet. Making a few jumps, changing his shoes, racing over to the shot put pit, and making a few heaves with nary a glance at what the competition is doing is challenging, but Gilreath isn't complaining about the results. Yesterday, Gilreath captured his first state crown when he cleared 6 feet, 4 inches in the high jump on the first day of the Class 1A state championships, which were held in conjunction with the Class 2A division at Morgan State University.

Hammond's Jermika Miller had long wanted to win a state title. The triple jumper finally got one Friday - in her last high school meet. Miller won her event in Class 3A at the state championship meet at Morgan State on a day that featured weather more suited for football than track. The senior turned in her second-best jump of the season to win on the first day of competition for Class 3A and 4A schools. The No. 6 Digital Harbor boys lead in Class 3A (23 points), thanks to a win from Michael Francis in the long jump and Corey Mendez's second-place effort in the high jump.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Four days before the opening ceremonies for the 1988 Summer Olympics, Cuba's Javier Sotomayor broke the world record for the high jump in a meet in Spain. But instead of boarding a plane bound for Seoul, South Korea, as the gold-medal favorite, he returned home as a pawn in a political game that brought him quickly back to earth.When Cuba boycotted the Games in 1988, as it had in 1984, none of its athletes was more deprived than Sotomayor, so dominant in his event that less than a year later he would become the first and, so far, the only person to clear eight feet.

Westminster's Tony Brown wears a headband and knee-high socks to keep the mood light. But on the track, his team is all business. Brown won the 110-meter hurdles and the Owls won both the boys and girls competitions in dismal, rainy weather at the Carroll County Track and Field championship yesterday at Western Maryland College. "My teammates lighten my intensity up a little bit because of the fact that we have so much power," Brown said. "But I still go out and try my hardest." Westminster's power is attributable to its numbers.

They got around to handing out the hardware (the medals, plaques and trophies) in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association indoor track championships yesterday at Essex Community College and, surprise, the same individuals who have dominated the meets all winter were there with their hands out. Double winners included Allen McDavid of Calvert Hall in the dash (60) and long sprint (300), and Kelly Zuknick of Spalding, who completed an 8-0 blitz in the mile and 2-mile in the league.

Any celebrating Arundel might have done for winning the Class 4A East boys title at North County was muted by the disqualification of one of its top athletes. County high jump champion Brian Devaul was disqualified from that event for unsportsmanlike conduct, which also eliminates him from that event at the state meet. Despite that, Arundel edged county rival Old Mill, 93-92, to win the 4A East regional. Westminster finished third in the boys meet (80), followed by C. Milton Wright and Broadneck.

Two months ago, Greg McCormick of Middletown High School didn't know when his next jump or vault might be. The junior had broken a bone in his neck while competing and his career hung in the balance. It was a career that had promise of being more than ordinary after McCormick scaled 7 feet in the high jump and 15 feet in the pole vault. Following an operation, rehabilitation and convalescence, McCormick got back to competition just last week at the Region 2A West meet. He qualified in his specialties, plus the long jump.

He also won the high jump and the 800. All in all, he helped Gilman score 40 points as the Greyhounds rolled to a fourth straight team title.

Hayes Henderson didn't pull any punches when describing Malcolm Vaughn's debut as a freshman on Meade's track and field team."He was a scared little kid [who]didn't want to do much of anything," said Henderson. "Sometimes he would cry when I made him stay after practice to run."Four years later, that "little kid" has developed into one of the state's best in two specialties, high jump and hurdles. The only tears he plans on shedding these days are those of joy.Vaughn started his final postseason in indoor track by winning the high jump and the 55-meter hurdles at last month's Anne Arundel County Championships.

When Dwight Barbiasz attempted the New Hampshire state-record high jump, the entire track meet halted to watch. Normally, with more eyes comes added pressure. For Barbiasz, it was extra motivation. He nailed it. "He told me he wasn't nervous," said Chris Barbiasz, Dwight's father. "He said it helped him jump higher. " The younger Barbiasz isn't one to shrink from a challenge. Coming out of Milford (N.H.) High School, he had plenty of high-profile suitors for his leaping services.
