guided both teams to state titles said his firstever cham pionship in track was special in more ways than one one was a lot like our first title in cross country because we went into it thinking we just wanted to do said Hansen who has coached girls track at NBHS for eight years We didnt really go into it thinking we could win it all so it was just a great sur gamered in cross country from

6 By BOB MINIS AP Sports Writer SALT LAKE CITY fourth blowout loss to Utah had David Robinson frustrated The officiating left the San Antonio center down right angry While the Jazz celebrated a 10881 victory and third trip to the Western Conference finals in five years Robinson normally the epitome of sportsmanship bitterly took on the referees par ticularly Steve Javie The AllStar center was especially upset with his third foul a charging call just 14 seconds into the second quarter with the Spurs trailing by five points I thought that call by Steve Javie was garbage and I think it was Robinson said Ive been seeing him all year long and it has been I dont appreciate him bringing that on the But Robinson held to 17 points in 29 minutes of play stopped short of blaming officiating for the outcome That he said was more due to Karl Malone who scored 25 points He got his team going early I wasnt able to That was a big part of the Robinson said The Jazz who open their next series at
