    PHILADLEPHIA -- Four Philadelphia high school athletes sprinted out of a track meet to rescue an elderly woman from a burning home.

    Competition was just starting between Germantown High and West Philadelphia yesterday afternoon when several shot putters spotted black smoke rising from a house across the street. They took off across the field and scaled a fence.

    Germantown team member Dwyne Hall says the teens heard a woman yelling for help when they got to the house and found her on the first floor, planning to go upstairs to find her kittens. He says three athletes from Germantown and one from West Philadelphia talked her out of it and guided her outside.

    Hall says the woman was wearing only undergarments, so one boy gave her his sweat pants and another his sweat shirt.
