CITY SECTION PRELIMINARIES
At Birmingham High

Sophomore Jamere Holland and junior Elijah Wells of Woodland Hills Taft, two of the state's fastest performers in their respective sprint events, were surprising non-qualifiers in the City Section preliminaries at Lake Balboa Birmingham on Thursday.

Holland was disqualified from the boys' 100 meters because he false started in his qualifying heat and Wells did not run in his heat of the 400 because he was suffering from back spasms that struck him while he ran the opening leg on Taft's 400 relay team earlier in the meet.

The top two marks of the meet were turned in by sophomore Myra Hasson of Gardena, who won her heat of the 400 in 54.05, and junior Travis Bradford of Los Angeles Fremont, who won his heat of the 800 in a career-best 1:53.77.

In regards to the team competition in the City championships at Birmingham next Thursday, L.A. Dorsey confirmed its role as the heavy favorite in the boys' meet with its performances Thursday while Gardena and defending champion Birmingham reaffirmed their status as co-favorites on the girls' side.
