For the athletes, yesterday's Anne Arundel County Relays were an opportunity to compete without any pressure and, most importantly, have fun.For the coaches, yesterday's meet at the Fifth Regiment Armory was one last chance to observe their athletes before the start of next week's regionals.From the smiles on the faces of those wearing medals and optimistic tone of most of the coaches, the meet appeared to have satisfied both parties."This is a meet where you can try out some people in some events where you may want to stick them in the regionals," said Annapolis coach Brian Funk.

PHILADELPHIA -- There's no doubt that running is in the genes of Lauren and Matt Centrowitz. After all, their father, Matt Centrowitz Sr., was a two-time (1976, 1980) USA Olympian and past American record-holder in the 5,000 meters. And their mother, Beverly Centrowitz, ran the 800 meters in 2 minutes, 08 seconds when she was at Hunter College. But after two sizzling performances on the second day of the 112th Penn Relays, it's the next generation of Centrowitzes' time to bask in the track spotlight.

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.

PHILADELPHIA - Whoever said the Penn Relays, America's longest-running track and field carnival, was strictly for the young folks of the high school and college generations? Certainly not Maryland Masters Club teammates Chuck Bartholomew, Marion Harrison, Larry Colbert and Bob Koontz. The senior-citizen quartet first ran off with Penn's Masters 400-meter relay title in the 60-plus category with a 51.93-second clocking yesterday at Franklin Field, then turned their attention to the individual 100-meter dash and brought home two more golds.

The Perry Hall boys showed the depth of their depth yesterday.The No. 2 Gators used their large variety of talent to win the first five events, take nine of 13 overall and capture a second straight Gilman Relays championship.Coach Jerry Martin's team finished with 112 points, far ahead of runner-up No. 9 Gilman's 89. The Gators won all five field events -- which were conducted first -- and jumped to an early 22-point lead that no one could overcome."If you can run well in a relay meet, you can run well in any type of meet," said Martin, who is in his final season as track and field coach.

After clearing 14 feet in last Monday's practice session in the Perry Hall High gymnasium, Dave Russell was looking to go one inch higher and break the county pole vault record at yesterday's Baltimore County Indoor Track Relay Championships at the Fifth Regiment Armory.The Perry Hall vaulter cleared 13-7 with plenty of room to spare on one of his early efforts but, as has been the case all season, when the bar was set at 14-1, Russell ran into trouble.His first trip down the runway toward a county record was cut short when an athlete inadvertently walked into his path.

PHILADELPHIA -- Leonard Braxton was back at the Penn Relays, site of some of his happiest days as a track and field coach.Braxton took over at Arizona State last fall, and the Sun Devils women left with a pretty good haul from Franklin Field, winning the sprint medley relay Friday and taking second in the 4 x 200 and 4 x 400 yesterday. The sprint medley win was the first time his runners had taken a Championship of America title since 1986, when Morgan State claimed the women's 4 x 100.Since he left Morgan State last fall, the Bears have been rocked by turmoil involving people hired on his watch as athletic director, and Braxton said he didn't leave his problems 2,500 miles behind.

If there's a two-word theme to describe what took place at the 16th annual Meade Stampede last night, it would be "gold rush." Like the pioneers who raided the West Coast in the 19th century, Oakland Mills, Arundel, Broadneck and Westminster grabbed at least three gold medals at the 16-team invitational at Meade High. No team scores were recorded. The top-ranked Oakland Mills boys squad captured five of the nine track events, and the girls team had winners in three of six field events.

Before bursting on to the state track and field scene with a second-place finish at the state meet last spring, few outside of the Baltimore area knew much about Mervo.But that's changing.Mervo, which won the Gilman Relays last Saturday, turned in another impressive performance by winning five events and taking third in two others at yesterday's Towson State Relays.Mervo coach Freddie Hendricks said that, while more now know about the Mustangs, his team still is trying educate others."We're trying to get a little recognition for our kids not only statewide, but I want some colleges to look at us," said Hendricks.

Owings Mills sprinter Lonnie Humphrey has achieved plenty of individual success during his high school career. Two Baltimore County titles, three state championships and six region titles prove that.But individual titles are not his goal."My goal is to help give Owings Mills a state championship for the team," said Humphrey. "I want to leave school with a [state championship] banner for the team so when I come back I can say I ran for Owings Mills that year."Humphrey certainly helped the team yesterday at the Baltimore County Relays at Catonsville Community College.
