Arkansas And LSU Take NCAA Track Titles Again

Arkansas and LSU took their usual divergent paths to National Collegiate Athletic Association track championships. The Razorbacks won their fourth successive men's title Saturday with a team featuring distance runners and jumpers, and LSU gained its ninth consecutive women's crown with its magnificent sprint brigade.

UCLA's John Godina shattered the collegiate record in the shot put with a heave of 72 feet 2 1/4 inches, longest throw in the world this year, and Michigan's Kevin Sullivan won the men's 1,500-meter race in 3 minutes 37.57 seconds.

The final 19-event program of the four-day championships at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville produced some impressive performances.

In addition to Godina and Sullivan, the top men's showings were by Kentucky's Tim Harden in the 100 with 10.05 seconds, a collegiate best; 100; George Mason's Greg Haughton in the 440, with 44.62, the second-fastest in the world this year; and Clemson's Duane Ross with 13.32 in the 110-meter hurdles, also No. 2 in the world.

The leading women's performances included George Mason's Diane Guthrie-Gresham's 6,527 points, the second-best collegiate total ever, in the heptathlon. She shattered former East St. Louisan Jackie Joyner-Kersee's NCAA meet record, finishing with 6,527 points. She beat Joyner-Kersee's mark of 6,390 points, set in 1983 when she was competing for UCLA. Joyner-Kersee, the 1988 and 1992 Olympic heptathlon gold medalist, also owns the collegiate record of 6,718, set in 1985.

***** ROAD RUNNING American 5K Women's Record Falls

Olympic bronze medalist Lynn Jennings set an American 5-kilometer record of 15 minutes 24 seconds in the Freihofer's Run For Women in Albany, N.Y. She ran the 3.1 miles 3 seconds faster than Judi St. Hilaire in 1989. Jennings also became the national 5K champion for the third consecutive year. Olga Appell finished second, in 15:27.

***** GOLF Norman Leads In Memorial Tourney

Greg Norman held a 1-stroke lead when darkness halted play in the third round of the Memorial tournament. Norman birdied the 14th hole in the gathering gloom in Dublin, Ohio, to move ahead of nine others who are 2 shots from the top spot. Play was held up almost five hours by thunderstorms. Twenty-two players, including most of the leaders, are to return Sunday morning to complete third-round play. Norman is a shot ahead of Ben Crenshaw, David Duval, Robert Gamez and David Frost, all at 11-under.

Graham Marsh, an Australian seeking for his first victory in the United States since 1977, tied a Bruno's Memorial Classic record with a 9-under-par 63 to take a 5-shot lead in the Senior PGA event in Birmingham, Ala. …
