You'd think Elaine Goldsmith, an elementary school teacher for the past five years and a student working toward her master's degree, would cringe when she hears her son, Carl Holmes, say he doesn't really enjoy school or want to go to college. A senior outfielder for Magnolia High School, Holmes already has decided that if drafted by a professional team in June, he will sign and pursue a baseball career. He'd rather concentrate on his batting average--not his grade-point average.

Public Defender Carl C. Holmes, the blunt-talking barrister who spent 30 years fighting for the indigent and indefensible in Orange County criminal courts, announced Thursday that he will retire this month. Holmes, who defended a rogues' gallery of clients during his tenure, said some of his most gratifying cases ended with convictions. The true reward came in sparing his clients the death penalty. "In this line of work, keeping a person from the death penalty is a success," said Holmes, 61.

The fortunes--and playing time--of Cal State Northridge freshman guard Carl Holmes have increased dramatically since Derrick Higgins was sidelined with a foot injury after five games. Holmes, Coach Bobby Braswell's nephew, averages 11.5 points and is shooting 48%. He averages 26 minutes in Big Sky Conference games. The other two Matador freshmen are struggling. Center Brian Heinle began the season with several strong efforts, but his defense is lacking and it has diminished his playing time.

Security never had a chance. It's impossible to stop 42 years of frustration, futility and fragility. No way to stem the swarm of fans, alumni, parents, brothers, sisters and anyone else who rushed the court after Cal State Northridge won the Big Sky Conference men's basketball tournament Saturday at the Matadome. For once, Northridge cheerleaders were crying for a good reason. The Matadors are going to the NCAA tournament. Who will they get? Arizona? Oklahoma? Maryland?

Carl Holmes, a three-year starter for the Magnolia High School baseball team, has signed a contract to play for the San Diego Padre organization. Holmes, a 6-foot 4-inch, 200-pound center fielder, will graduate from Magnolia Friday and fly to Spokane, Wash., Saturday to report to the Padre rookie affiliate in the Northwest League. Holmes, who was selected in the seventh round of last week's free-agent draft, hit .365 with six doubles, nine stolen bases and 22 RBIs for the Sentinels this season.

Guard Derrick Higgins of Cal State Northridge will be sidelined indefinitely with a stress fracture in his right foot, Coach Bobby Braswell said Thursday. Higgins, a senior who was the team's leading scorer last season, is averaging 10.2 points per game and is second on the team with a 53.8% shooting percentage. The injury has gotten progressively worse over the last week. "He could be out from three to four weeks or for the season," Braswell said.

Not very often can foul trouble be a blessing, but the two whistles Carl Holmes picked up in three minutes Saturday might have been. Holmes, a Cal State Northridge guard who was Big Sky Conference freshman of the year last season, was the last in a 10-player rotation to get into the game against Long Beach State, entering midway through the first half. It was foul, foul, grimace and back to the bench for Holmes, who missed his only shot and only free throw.

Carl Holmes has come a long way under the wing of Bobby Braswell and he still has a ways to go. Holmes, a 6-1 junior guard from Eugene, Ore., enters his third season with the Cal State Northridge men's basketball team as one of the team's seasoned leaders. Holmes, Big Sky Conference freshman of the year two seasons ago, knows the Matadors' coach as well as any player. Holmes is a nephew of Braswell, who became his legal guardian when he was 14 while Braswell was an assistant at Oregon.

As luck would have it, Lucky Grundy held Cal State Northridge's fortunes in his hands. But the reserve guard's wild shot from the lane in the final second wasn't even close enough to benefit from a lucky bounce and the Matadors lost their fifth consecutive road game, 79-77, to Ohio on Wednesday night in front of 4,000 at the Convocation Center. The Matadors battled back from a discouraging number of fouls and took possession on a rebound by Jabari Simmons with 15 seconds to play.

Carl Holmes and Brian Heinle are making that quick trip home common of college freshmen. After a good meal and a basketball game, they gotta run. They played high school basketball in Eugene, Ore., where Cal State Northridge is staying before its game against Oregon State tonight in Corvallis. Heinle, a 6-foot-9 center, can reminisce about his career at Sheldon High that included three conference championships.
