According to Chester track coach Jim Joyce, Samara Benson hasn't yet done all that she can do in the track world. And if that's the case, Delaware County track teams might as well concede the triple jump for the rest of the year. In the Track and Field Coaches Association Meet at Lehigh University on Friday, Benson set a new county record of 38 feet, 1/2 inch in the triple jump, and anchored Chester's winning 880 relay team that just missed setting another Delco record, as the Clippers won medals in six events.

It's fortunate for the rest of the Suburban One American Conference that the weather was less than ideal last Saturday. If it had been nicer, Wissahickon might have run away with everything in the Suburban One American Conference Relays at Wissahickon. As it was, the Trojans took five running events and two field-event relays to dominate the field. Wissahickon won the shuttle hurdles in 1 minute, 10.7 seconds, the 440-yard relay in 51.4 seconds, the 880-yard relay in 1:51.4, the mile relay in 4:12.

Like many track coaches, Penncrest's George Munro uses the indoor season to get his athletes in shape for the spring season. This year, that approach has worked well. Saturday at the Central League Relays at Conestoga High, the Lions' boys competed in 18 events and won four first-place medals and six second-place medals. "The guys are realizing how important it is to run throughout the year," Munro said. "A couple of kids ran indoors for the first time this year, and it really paid off. " The Lions took the shuttle-hurdles relay with senior Byrne Remphrey and junior Ken Ferro winning in 1 minute, 5.1 seconds.

Rob Georges has been able to just show up at track meets and win medals so far. The 6-foot-6 Bishop McDevitt senior won the Catholic League's indoor triple-jump and high-jump championships last month with less than a week of track practice after the basketball season had ended. Georges finished second in the triple jump in the season-opening Pennsylvania Track Coaches Classic outdoor meet two weeks ago, then he won the triple and high jumps in the Council Rock Invitational on April 1. He is one of those athletes for whom the word potential is frequently used.

The Olympic Track and Field Trials has not been the best of all possible meets for Mike Conley, the jumper from Chicago who was eliminated in the triple jump on Saturday - and again yesterday. In competition marred by gusting winds on Saturday, Conley finished fourth at 57 feet, 9 3/4 inches, just missing the last Olympic team slot. That final spot was picked off by Robert Cannon, a 30-year-old former Indiana University athlete, by a margin of a half-inch. Conley, the 1984 Olympic silver medalist who ranked No. 2 in the world in his event last year, filed a protest after the judges came up with two different triple jump measurements - one where his heels had landed, and another where his shorts apparently had touched the sand - on his final jump.

Call it a triple triple. That's the best way of describing Leonard Mason's event and his accomplishment in Saturday's Track Coaches Association of Greater Philadelphia Division II indoor meet. Not only did the Bishop McDevitt junior win the triple jump with a leap of 44 feet, 1 inch at Lehigh University, but he equaled his victorious distance a total of three times. Nobody else in Division I or II competition exceeded 44 feet. Patrick McGinley of La Salle was first in Division I at 43-9 3/4. "We were happy not just with the win, but the series of jumps," McDevitt coach Paul Poiesz said.

In last week's Suburban One American season-opener against Plymouth- Whitemarsh, Cheltenham coach Paul Gorka decided to use Monica Ellis in the triple jump. For Ellis, it was a first. "When I found out about it, I thought it was great," Ellis said. "I was looking forward to giving it a try. Then coach Gorka came over and asked me if I had my marks down. I told him I didn't even know what marks were. " Marks, Gorka explained, are strategically placed pieces of tape that enable triple jumpers to get their steps down during their approaches.

Fans at the northeast end of Franklin Field roared with every jump by Sheila Hudson-Strudwick and Cynthea Rhodes yesterday, as perfect weather, thousands of fans and an Olympic field combined to produce exciting competition in the triple jump at the Penn Relays. Hudson-Strudwick - or "Hud-Strud," as she calls herself - came within 2 1/4 inches of tying her American outdoor mark in the Olympic Development event. And she gave the fans some of the credit for her effort. "The crowd helped a lot," she said of her winning jump of 46 feet, 6 inches.

Being a star sprinter, hurdler, long jumper, triple jumper, and key member of championship relay teams apparently wasn't enough for Cidea'a Woods. The Winslow Township senior also is a top student, a member of the National Honor Society, and the drum major of the Eagles' marching band. But she's always ready for a new challenge. So when a high jumper for the Eagles was unable to make the indoor state championships this winter, Woods raised her hand and volunteered for the event.

Haddon Heights track star Dominique Irons searches through his black Nissan Maxima to show off his medals. About eight hang from the rearview mirror. More rest inside the beige center console, some even unopened, because Irons does not want to break the mirror. The muscular, 5-foot-8 senior struggles not to drop any medals while explaining the origin of each. He also lines his living room and bedroom door with awards he accumulated throughout high school. Just before searching through his car, Irons, The Inquirer's South Jersey boys' track athlete of the year, recalled when he did not even want to participate in his most successful event.

When the discus left Jess Woodard's hand, she said, the throw felt familiar. She just didn't realize how familiar. "A good throw is a good throw," said Woodard, a Cherokee senior. "It felt like a good throw. " For the second weekend in a row, Woodard uncorked the second-longest throw in New Jersey high school girls' history. But the twist on Saturday at the track and field state championships at Egg Harbor Township was that Woodard's winning throw was exactly the same as her throw the previous Saturday at the sectional meet.

At some point in the middle of the jump, floating in midair, Dominique Irons felt what was coming. "It actually felt like I was sailing while I was jumping," he said. "From my first jump, I just felt good. I knew I could build to that 50-foot mark. " In Friday's Group 1, Group 4, and Non-Public B state track and field championships at Egg Harbor Township, Irons, a Haddon Heights senior, stole the spotlight with a triple jump of 50 feet, 63/4 inches. The jump was a state record, and it was the fourth-best in the country this season.

Jess Woodard's teammates were bundled up and spectating, watching her compete in the final event of the afternoon. It was the team's fourth hour in the miserable, unseasonable weather. "They were out here supporting me," Woodard said. "But I think even they were ready to get back on the bus at that point. " It was a spectacle to see so many so bundled up in late May. But Woodard's game plan for the weather stood out just as much. Through sideways rain; strong winds; and bitter, cold temperatures, the Cherokee senior never stopped moving - running in place, jogging, stretching, shuffling back and forth.

Diamond Hodge continued her dominance in the long jump and triple jump Wednesday afternoon as the Girls High senior captured both events at Germantown on the first day of the PIAA District 12 Track and Field Championships. Hodge set a meet record with a 38-foot, 7-inch mark in the Class AAA triple jump. She won the long jump at 18-1. It was eight inches ahead of second place. Hodge won both events last week in the Public League championship meet. Ke'Von Lumb of Bishop McDevitt won the Class AA girls' long jump at 18-11/2, just a quarter of an inch ahead of second-place Tehya Noell of Engineering and Science.

For Kayla Coley and Ciara Leonard, Saturday afternoon at Plymouth Whitemarsh must have felt just like practice. There was Coley, Cheltenham's Texas Tech-bound hurdler, capturing the 100-meter girls' hurdles at the Suburban One American Conference Championships. And near her side, just two-tenths of a second behind, was sophomore teammate Leonard. "We put them next to each other every day on the hurdling drills," coach Kelly Jensen said. "They work tremendously together and are competitive, but collegial.
