USC-bound sprinter Lionel Larry of Dominguez receives attention
from EMS personnel after an apparent hamstring pull after leading
late in the 100-meter race, then was forced to scratch from the 200.
LB Poly's Derrick Jones, who will attend USC in the fall, tries to
console his future teammate. Our best wishes are with Lionel as
he aims to return in time for the state meet 4x100-meter relay.
