Boghossian, Webster Named Preseason All-Americans

Dave Boghossian and Bobby Webster of Glendale College have been named to the JC Grid-Wire preseason All-American team.

Boghossian, a 6-foot-1, 280-pound center, was named to the first team, and Webster, a 5-5, 185-pound tailback, was a second-team selection.

Named as players to watch are running backs Jamal Anderson (6-0, 230) of Moorpark, LaShante Parker (5-10, 185) of Pierce and Tony Williams (5-5, 190) of Ventura; defensive linemen Robert Moose (6-3, 235) of Moorpark and Robert Montoya (6-3, 300) of Glendale; offensive lineman Jeff Long (6-5, 270) of Moorpark; and kicker Andy Petruski of Moorpark.

The Cal State Northridge men's track and field team has been ranked 26th in Track & Field News' national dual-meet rankings for the 1991 season.

The Matador women were ranked 36th.

Northridge narrowly missed the top 25 in the men's rankings, scoring 43.1 points to No. 25 Stanford's 43.2.

The scoring system is based on head-to-head competition, difficulty of schedule, quality of marks and hypothetical competition.

The Northridge women totaled 28.4 points.

"I'm excited about the rankings," Northridge Coach Don Strametz said. "I would have loved to have made the top 25 and had our name in print in the magazine, but it's a good start for this program considering it was our first season in Division I."

Washington State and Nebraska won the men's and women's titles, respectively.

John Wordin, 27, of West Hills won the 10-mile Santa Clarita time trial bicycle race last Sunday with a time of 20 minutes 44 seconds. Gary Hansen of Woodland Hills was third.

Later in the day, Wordin placed sixth in the 35-mile Mexican Independence Day Criterium in East Los Angeles. John Mutolo of Thousand Oaks placed third.
