Two San Fernando Valley high schools led the top finishers Saturday night in the oral portion of the Super Quiz at the California Academic Decathlon. According to preliminary results, Alemany High School of Mission Hills was in the lead, with El Camino Real of Woodland Hills second and Los Angeles High third. "Oh yes," Alemany junior Mathew Pomeroy said with a shrug. "I knew we'd win. It was easy."

De'Andre Scott is at ease these days. You can see it in his hypnotic green eyes, toothy smile and jocular manner. His presence soothes teammates as he saunters through the Alemany High locker room, softly shaking hands and passing out pats on the back to everyone in his path. "I feel comfortable here," Scott said. "The people at Alemany High School make you feel at home." No longer is the region's best running back filled with anxiety about where he's going to be playing in September.

Tackling the first contentious issue of the race, candidates for the 7th District seat on the Los Angeles City Council staked out positions Tuesday in the debate over whether a high school should be built on the old Gemco site. To the applause of more than 100 Neighborhood Watch volunteers, candidates Corinne Sanchez, Ollie McCaulley and Raul Godinez II announced their opposition to a proposal to build a high school on the 12-acre site of a former shopping center in Arleta.

A youth coach at Alemany High School and the YMCA dodged detection of his record as a sex offender by submitting someone else's fingerprints and other false information for a background check, a state official said Friday. Darryl McDonald, 36, used another person's fingerprints for the check conducted for the North Valley YMCA in 1994, said Michael Van Winkle, a spokesman with the state Department of Justice.

There has been considerable comment recently concerning the 10 students asked to withdraw from Alemany High School because of their association with dance crews. In an editorial, The Times questioned the fairness of Alemany's policy of dismissal for those associated with dance crews. Much was made of whether a crew was the same as a gang and whether boys with high grade-point averages should be treated the same way one would deal with members of a street gang.

El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills tied for first place with a Fresno County high school Saturday in the public, question-and-answer portion of the California Academic Decathlon's tension-filled Super Quiz. In an extremely tight tournament, the defending state champions and their Fresno competitors finished just one point ahead of a three-way tie for second place with Alemany High School of Mission Hills and Simi Valley High School and Trabuco Hills High School in Orange County.

Officials scrambled Wednesday to determine how a convicted sex offender slipped through legally required criminal background checks and was allowed to coach children at a high school and a YMCA. YMCA officials said Darryl McDonald, 36, of Sylmar, lied on his 1994 employment application, denying he had ever been convicted of a felony. They said his fingerprints were sent by the YMCA to the state Department of Justice for a background check, which revealed no criminal record.

About 50 parents and students from a Catholic high school held a protest Wednesday morning at the campus gates, decrying the forced withdrawal of nine boys and probation of four girls--including honors students, athletes and the junior class president--for their involvement in a youth "dance crew." The Alemany High School student handbook prohibits students from belonging to gangs--or anything resembling gangs--including dance crews or party crews.
