How odd it must be. To be 15 years old and to have a past. Aron Garcia has lived a thousand and one childhood dreams, not all of them pleasant, while still a child. What Little Leaguer doesn't dream of playing in front of thousands of cheering fans with millions more watching on television? What young player, budding superstar and bench-warmer alike, doesn't dream of pitching a no-hitter, striking out 11 and hitting a home run on a stage as grand as the Little League World Series?

All week long, Irvine High quarterback Aron Garcia said he read the newspaper articles and watched the television interviews of Newport Harbor players boasting about their great defense. Funny, Garcia thought. In his opinion, Orange County's best defense was the one he faced in practice each day. "Newport Harbor talked trash all week," he said. "But we showed them up tonight. They were saying their defense was better than ours, and that (ticked) us off." How much?

As a resident of Irvine, I am very proud to be from the city of the Northwood Little League team. Saying they had an exceptional year would be an understatement. The team and the coaches had a once-in-a-lifetime year. I fear the nation might feel embarrassed over Northwood's 21-1 loss in the championship game. My hope is that sports fans will remember that Irvine made it to the championship game with an incredible 18-game winning streak. I also want Aron Garcia to know that I will remember his 10-0 record, not to mention his hitting skills.

It had something to do with parabolas. Or maybe parallelograms. All Aron Garcia remembers is it came from the world of obtuse angles and squiggly lines and xy this equals AB that . In other words, the stuff of math attacks. Now those of you who can leaf through a geometry book and not get the least bit queasy, go ahead and laugh. Better yet, go play with a protractor or something. The rest of us will suffer along.

Aron Garcia passed for a season-high 223 yards to help propel Sea View League-leading Irvine to a 33-0 victory over Saddleback at Santa Ana Stadium Friday night. Garcia connected on 13 of 16 passes, including his last 10, to improve the Vaqueros' record to 7-1, 5-0 in league, and clinch a playoff berth for Irvine. "Saddleback was well-prepared and we had a hard time running against them," said Irvine Coach Terry Henigan. "We took what we could get and Garcia was sharp."

Aron Garcia scored the game's only run when he was balked home in the first inning. Corona del Mar dropped to 0-6 in league.
