Twenty-four hours before its big game, Huntington Beach High School was thrown out of the playoffs Thursday by appellate court justices who lectured the team's booster club attorneys on the importance of playing by the rules. Huntington Beach had been cited by the California Interscholastic Federation's Southern Section as having played tackle David Roman, 17, who was ineligible because he lived with a brother instead of his mother since moving from Maryland.

Fifteen years ago, the California Interscholastic Federation's Southern Section made history when it agreed to promote a soft drink in exchange for the company's underwriting the cost of all of its awards. The deal might have saved the Southern Section only a few thousand dollars, but it broke ground where no one had dared venture before. Corporate sponsorship was new to high school sports in the 1970s.

For many of the top high school athletic administrators in Southern California, the new year has always been something to look forward to. It meant football season was complete, basketball was in full swing and the school year was half over. And it also meant a weekend getaway with associates, during which business was mixed with pleasure, was around the corner.

Mission Viejo High junior David Frazeur, who is among the county leaders in the 110 high hurdles and the triple jump, has apparently won his battle for eligibility with the California Interscholastic Federation. Frazeur's appeal of a decision by Southern Section Commissioner James Staunton was heard last week by a section appeals officer, who ruled that Frazeur can remain eligible in track and field provided escrow closes on the family's home by Friday, as is expected.

A Supreme Court decision that gives schools the right to sue high school athletic associations for violating a member's civil rights will not affect California because schools here already have that right, according to two commissioners in the California Interscholastic Federation. However, now that the case is back in the hands of the 6th U.S. District Court of Appeals, there is the potential for a far-reaching impact on recruiting rules and an athletic association's power to enforce them.

Some county high schools had their wishes granted when a final league realignment plan for the 2002-06 cycle was approved during a meeting of principals from Orange County high schools Thursday at Fountain Valley High. Representatives from Century League schools Canyon, El Modena and Villa Park left scratching their heads after the five-hour meeting, even though it was their plan that twice missed passage by a single vote and was ultimately approved after a last-minute trade.

The Streak may come to an end after all. Principals from 63 Orange County high schools are scheduled to vote Thursday at Fountain Valley High on several league realignment plans for the 2002-06 cycle. Principals will vote on a list of 10 realignment proposals, narrowing the field to three. They will then vote again on only those three proposals. The top vote-getter, if it receives two-thirds of the principals' 63 votes, will be submitted to the Southern Section office for final approval.

Quan Vu is co-captain of the Santiago High girls' field hockey team, a title that goes to players who are loyal and inspirational and exhibit a team-first attitude. Captains are also, quite often, stars of the games. Not Vu. You have to play to be considered a star, and Vu has been banned from competition because the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section has ruled that you have to be a girl to play field hockey. Vu, a boy, doesn't qualify.

The Southern Section had decreed before releasing its boys' basketball playoff pairings Sunday that teams with at least 11 victories weren't guaranteed entry into the postseason, sending coaches such as Esperanza's John Cyrus scurrying to Cerritos Gahr High with a queasy feeling in their stomachs. Cyrus' Aztecs weren't assured of a playoff berth because they had finished fourth in the Sunset League, and only the top three teams qualified automatically. Their overall record was 12-15.
