Chaminade Coach Todd Wolfson is borrowing a page from the Pete Carroll playbook in trying to have some fun during the pressure of going for a championship. He had been telling his players to prepare for a "hard" practice session on Wednesday in preparing for Saturday's Division III Southern California Regional final against Santa Margarita.
