Meet Has Drawn Top of Cross Country Crop|

One of the officials for today's qualifying meet for the Kinney Cross Country championships has little trouble summing up the quality of competition.
"It's unbelievable," says Max Mayo of Athens, Ga., coordinator for the Kinney Southern Regional qualifying meet at 11:30 a.m. today at Charlotte's McAlpine Greenway Park.
Mayo, the cross country coach at Athens's Cedar Shoals High, cannot be accused of falsely bragging about the competition in today's Kinney meet, which includes nearly 400 high school runners from 12 Southern states.
"There is no one in the South who isn't in this meet who isn't a top runner," Mayo says. "In the past couple of years, there have been a couple who haven't come, but this year we got them all."
The top eight finishers in the boys' and girls' races today will advance to Kinney's national meet Dec. 10 in San Diego. But finishing among the top eight will not be easy, considering the level of competition in the event.
"We have 17 of the 20 state champions in the South," Mayo says. "We have 95% of the top kids from each state."
Among the favorites in this year's race are several runners whose experience on the McAlpine course should help them try to break the boys' course record of 14:57.6, set last year by Brian Jaeger of Winter Park, Fla.
The favorites include John Erickson of Southeast Guilford, who won the N.C. high school meet Nov. 4 with a state meet record of 15:14.
Other favorites include a pair of runners who qualified for the Kinney national meet last year. Ken Cheeseman of Casselberry, Fla., finished sixth in the 1982 Southern meet and 17th in the national meet. Greg Hoofnagle of Atkins, Va., finished fourth in the qualifying race and 27th in the national event.
Other top boys' entries include Jeff Slater of Langley, Va., and Greg Green of Ft. Lauderdale, according to Mayo.
The girls will be shooting for the course record of 17:21.2 set in last year's Kinney meet by Andrea Volpe of Springfield, Va., who eventually finished fourth in the national meet.
The top entries this year include Donna Combs of Neptune Beach, Fla., a 10th grader who finished seventh in the regional meet last year and took 27th in the national meet. Other top girls' entries are Alena Palmquist of Marietta, Ga., and Sonja Braash of Orange Park, Fla., both of whom qualified for the national meet as freshmen and sophomores but failed to finish in the top eight last year.
Floridian Wins Kinney Meet
The toughest foe for Greg Green was not a swift group of the South's top high school runners.
It was chilly, blustery weather which appeals to runners who're accustomed to it but is a breath-taking affair for a runner from balmy Florida.
"It was 76 degrees when I left home." said the Fort Lauderdale runner. "I'm sure not used to this."
Green, the Florida state 4A cross country champion, won the Southern Regional men's qualifying meet for the Kinney Cross Country Championships on Friday at McAlpine Greenway Park with a time of 15:12 over the 5,000-meter course.
Green and the other top seven men's finishers, as well as the top eight women's finishers, qualified for the national Kinney meet Dec. 10 in San Diego.
Green apparently didn't suffer greatly from the weather, especially during the thrilling final stretch of the men's race when he sprinted past Greg Hoofnagle of Marion, Va., to take a narrow victory.
Hoofnagle led most of the race, and held a lead of several seconds over Green and a pack of other runners until the final half-mile. Green closed the gap on Hoofnagle and sprinted past him less than 30 yards from the finish line.
"I knew I was going to move up on him, but I didn't know how soon," said Green, who failed to break Brian Jaeger's course record of 14:57. "I wanted to make my move at that point. He had a pretty good lead at one time but I knew I had a lot left. The way it looked to me was he was moving at the same pace and I was moving a little faster."
Kathleen Smith, of San Antonio, smashed the course record and romped to an easy victory to advance to the national meet Dec. 10 in San Diego. Smith's time of 16:56 easily broke Andrea Volpe's course record of 17:21 and was 32 seconds faster than second-place Demarch Robertson of Virginia.
Joining Green and Hoofnagle in the Kinney championships was John Erickson of Greensboro, the winner of the N.C. state meet. He finished fifth Friday in 15:22.
Other men's qualifiers were Jeff Slater of Virginia (15:21); Tony Martinez of Texas (15:22); Clifford Holtz of Virginia (15:23); Chuck Harmon of Kentucky (15:28); and John Stein of Virginia (15:28).
Other women joining Smith and Robertson in San Diego were Brenda Moore of Texas (17:32); Victoria Verinder of Virginia (17:35); Alena Palmquist of Georgia (17:43); Stacey Zartler of Texas (17:45); Donna Combs of Florida (17:46); and Juanita Wilson of Texas (17:56).
The top area men's finisher was Eric Landis of East Mecklenburg,
who finished 65th in 16:33.
