As the team's captain and lone returning letterman, Dan Ho is the face of Garden Grove Bolsa Grande boys' tennis. But he certainly isn't the mouth. Ho, an introverted third-year senior starter, is a noticeable anomaly among a group Coach Curt Chamberlain calls "a fun-loving bunch." There's no reason for players to hold back their banter now, as Bolsa Grande, 13-0 overall and 6-0 in the Garden Grove League, is more than two-thirds of the way to a perfect regular season.

Words like "biopsy," "equine," "convivial" and "bellicose" have been appearing each day--alone--on the marquee at Bolsa Grande High School. The word of the day also is repeated over the public address system, written on chalkboards in classrooms, and used by teachers. The idea is to teach the 1,600 students at Bolsa Grande the meaning and pronunciation of at least one new word a day.

Citing too few players and concerns about safety, Bolsa Grande softball Coach Kurt Parker said Sunday his school will not field a team this season. "Girls who have never competed in their lives, who have never picked up a softball until three weeks ago, were going to make the varsity," Parker said. No more than 16 players showed up at any practice, and only two junior varsity-level players showed any consistency in attendance, Parker said. Safety was a greater concern.

Attendance was up at Bolsa Grande High School on Monday, after 56% of the student body missed school last week following a Columbine-style threat of violence. Only 706 of Bolsa Grande's 1,610 students attended class Friday, after school officials sent home a letter to parents warning them of the threat. Found in a desk before winter break, the paragraph-long threat written on a personal computer threatened harm against students at the Garden Grove school. It specifically mentioned Jan. 7.

In Bill Reynolds' world, March Madness has little to do with basketball. Reynolds is the men's basketball coach at Southern California College, but the Vanguards barely made it out of February before being knocked out of the postseason. Reynolds is also a guidance counselor at Bolsa Grande High, where the season can seem never-ending.
