TRACKING THE BEST . . . Sunday marks the renewal of the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational, one of the nation's premier track and field showcases for long-distance runners. Annually, the Payton Jordan is the premier early season domestic meet used to establish qualifying standards for international competition and for collegians to secure spots in the NCAA Prelims. At last year's meet, competitors established four world-leading times, five meet records, two stadium records, and 13 World Championship 'A' standards. The top 10 finishers in the men's 5,000 meters all were under the existing best time in the world. In the men's 10,000, the top three did the same. This year, with a collection of elite American and international pros, as well as many of the best collegians, the 19th annual meet promises to be a fast one. Cobb Track and Angell Field will be the site once again, with field events starting at noon and running events at 3:39 p.m. Action continues on the track through 11:30 p.m. with the second section of the women's 10,000.
