NEW YORK (AP) - A 16-year-old Bronx girl who collapsed after running her 1,000-meter event at a high school track meet remained in critical condition today.
The ambulance crew that rushed Stephanie Companoni to the hospital Sunday reported she had suffered cardiac arrest, said Jack McGonigle, spokesman for Emergency Medical Service.
Companoni, a student at Aquinas High School, was taken to the hospital's Allen Pavilion shortly after noon Sunday.
The girl had competed in an unseeded heat of the Catholic High School Athletic Association Indoor Track and Field Intersectional Championships. The meet was held at the Draddy Gymnasium of Manhattan College, in the Bronx.
Witnesses said the girl fell as she walked with her mother just after the race.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Mike Hickey set three school records with six hits, 10 RBIs and 14 total bases as 12th-ranked Texas A&M routed Westmont College 31-2.
Hickey, a transfer from Oklahoma, was 6-for-7 Monday with two doubles and two home runs for the Aggies (8-2). The six hits and 10 RBIs also tied Southwest Conference records.
The Aggies had 27 hits and capitalized on seven errors. They scored in every inning of the nine-inning game, including eight times in the first when they chased starter Jason Lester (1-1).
Trey Witte (1-0) picked up the victory with three scoreless innings.
The Aggies fell one run short of tying a school record for runs set against Southern Methodist in 1936, but set a school record with 27 RBIs, beating the old record of 25 against Texas Tech in 1985 and '89.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Racing investor R.D. Hubbard, who gained control of Hollywood Park through a costly proxy fight, was formally elected board president of Hollywood Park Operating Co.
Hubbard, of Fort Worth, Texas, has interests in New Mexico's Ruidoso Downs and the Woodlands in Kansas City, Kan. He also is president and chief executive officer of the track.
Hubbard was elected at the track's annual shareholders' meeting.
Hollywood Park Realty Enterprises Inc., which owns the race track property, also declared a 15 cent shareholders dividend, to be paid on March 31.
Monday's consecutive meetings were to have been held last year but were postponed due to Hubbard's proxy fight wth Marje Everett, who had run the track since 1972. The annual meetings for 1991 will be held on April 24, the opening day of Hollywood Park's spring and summer race season.
Hubbard said he planned numerous changes to refurbish Hollywood Park, which faces $45 million in debts. He also said he wanted to put the proxy fight with Ms. Everett, which cost the track $9 million, behind him.
''I'm concerned about the future,'' Hubbard said. ''There's nothing we can do about the past, so let's forget about the old arguments (with Ms. Everett). We're here to concentrate on the new Hollywood Park.''
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - Azumah Nelson's defense of the World Boxing Council super-featherweight title against Jeff Fenech has been postponed until May, Australian promoter Bill Mordey said today.
Nelson was to meet the unbeaten Fenech at the National Tennis Center in Melbourne on April 6.
Mordey said negotiations with an American promoter regarding cable television coverage of the fight in the United States were still underway.
''I'm hoping to come to terms within the next week and the fight will definitely go ahead sometime in May,'' Mordey said.
Nelson, from Ghana, has a 32-2 record, while Australian Fenech is 25-0. He previously held world titles at bantamweight, super-bantamweight and featherweight.
Mordey also said he hoped to announce details of a preliminary bout, which would lead to a shot at the WBC cruiserweight title.
Mordey hopes to match Australian-based American Mike ''The Bounty'' Hunter with former champion Carlos de Leon of Puerto Rico.
The winner would face current WBC champion Massimiliano Duran of Italy later this year.
MOSCOW (AP) - A Soviet sports official said today that a drug test administered to figure skater Marina Klimova in Sofia at the last European championships ''was a mistake.''
Vasily Gromyko, a deputy sports minister, also said at a news conference that the test in Sofia in late January was flawed.
''The Sofia anti-doping laboratory is not accredited at the IOC Medical Commission.
''Istvan Sugar, a judge from Hungary, was appointed the head of testing commission in Sofia, but he had no official right for that,'' Gromyko said.
He added that a Bulgarian doctor sealed the urine sample used in the tast, though only an International Skating Union representative could do that.
''A crude violation of the confidential character of the analysis was committed in making public its result.''
Klimova, who attended the news conference, said she ''was stunned'' when she heard the news, and added: ''I cherish my hopes that justice will triumph.''
Natalia Dubova, a leading Soviet coach, ridiculed usage drugs by figure skaters in dancing events and said it is ''an absurd mistake of Bulgarian drug control.'' Olympic champion Alexander Gorshkov said Klimova and her partner Sergei Ponomarenko have already suffered morally.
He also said: ''This tragic mistake already made it very difficult for them to train for the coming World championships.''
