Zap Fitness Foundation of Blowing Rock will have three runners competing at the Olymic Trials in Eugene, Ore., next Friday night, June 22. Sarah Porter became the latest runner to join the fray when she turned in a personal-

best time at the Portland (Ore.) Track Festival last Friday night in the women's 10,000-meter run. She finished the race in 32:37.22; the qualifying mark was 32:45.00. Friday night's effort also eclipsed her old personal mark of 32:57.31 in the 10,000 meters.
She will join Alissa McKaig and David Jankowski at the Olympic Trials. McKaig has qualified in two events, the 10,000 meters (32:14.51) and the 5,000-meter run (15:28.11); Jankowski will compete in the men's 10,000 meters (28:14.56).
