One second. That was the only thing that separated Mike Sheridan from obtaining his season-long goal. That goal was to reach the Masters Meet in the 1,600 meters, a feat that eluded him by the narrowest of margins.

It wasn't senior Doug McNeese, who was a calming presence in the most heated of situations, nor was it sophomore Nathaniel Vail, who led the team in scoring in the biggest match of the season.

The Burbank Leader and the Glendale News-Press this week have been celebrating Rudolph's 30 years with the company, from when she began on Oct. 6, 1975, as what was then called a "copy girl," writing obituaries, to today, a respected features editor, who has made her mark in the newsroom and in the community.
