As many as 10 students are believed to be responsible for a costly senior prank last week at Chatsworth High School, the school's principal said Thursday after some of those students owned up to painting over walls, windows, doors and sidewalks. Principal Dan Wyatt said an unspecified number of students have agreed to pay for the $4,000 cleanup. After the damage was discovered June 14, administrators threatened to cancel today's graduation ceremony if the vandals did not come forward.

A suspected senior prank at Chatsworth High School that left the campus looking like a kindergarten finger-painting party is no laughing matter to police, who are pursuing the case as a felony and will seek restitution from parents for the $10,000 cleanup costs. Students arriving for classes Friday found exterior classroom walls, doors, sidewalks and planters plastered with handprints and footprints in orange and blue, the school colors.

A fire was discovered shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday in the student store at Chatsworth High School. No one was injured, according to Principal Dan Wyatt, but the building sustained about $20,000 in damage and lost about $15,000 in equipment, including change machines. It was the second fire at the school, located at 10027 Lurline Ave., in less than two weeks. On Nov. 5, an early morning fire in the gym destroyed $40,000 in athletic equipment.

Most of Chatsworth High's baseball players stayed over at first baseman George Spadier's house Tuesday night. They didn't go to sleep until 4 a.m. The players were so excited after defeating Roosevelt, 2-1, to win the City Championship at Dodger Stadium they called Coach Tom Meusborn. This would have been fine, except it was 2:30 in the morning. Prank calls to your coach usually result in running laps until your feet are ready to fall off.

Oh, those 'D' words. Pick one, two, three descriptors--degrading, demeaning, devastating--and they describe Chatsworth High's tough luck in City Section baseball championship games. Another word, this one more appealing to Chatsworth fans, now comes to mind: Dynasty. After the Chancellors defeated Roosevelt, 2-1, for the City Championship before 3,546 Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, the on-field soiree began. Most of the attendees were underclassmen.

To see Sean Richards charge out of the bullpen Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium to celebrate Chatsworth High's 2-1 victory over Roosevelt in the City Championship game offers a compelling lesson on the virtue of sacrifice and patience. Richards, a senior pitcher who was warmed up and ready to provide relief if needed, thought about turning in his uniform more than once this season. Because he didn't, Chatsworth won the City Championship. "It was a year of growing up and not giving up," he said.

Roosevelt High's baseball team practices at a park that has no mound but plenty of winos. Its star pitcher wears cleats that are falling apart. Few players can afford to buy their own bats. In contrast, Chatsworth has four game uniforms, a pristine home field with a fancy scoreboard, three batting cages and players who pay private coaches when they need to come out of a slump. "There's so many things they have that we don't have," Coach Scott Pearson of Roosevelt said.

When Chatsworth High's baseball team was 23-0 and ranked No. 1 in the state, the Chancellors exuded an aura of invincibility. Then came a two-week period in which losses to Birmingham and Granada Hills caused some to wonder if Chatsworth was no better than an average team. After sending out conflicting signals, the top-seeded Chancellors (30-2) enter the City Championship game at 7:30 tonight at Dodger Stadium determined to leave their mark.
