I was disappointed by the coverage of the reopening of El Camino High School ("High School to be Shut at Least a Month," Feb. 3). It suggested a "done deal" and failed to recognize the efforts to pursue other alternatives. I attended the recent meeting in the gymnasium at the school on Feb. 2 to stress my commitment to help the El Camino school community consider immediate options, beyond just waiting for the arrival of portable classroom buildings. The decision to wait for portable classrooms, made quickly by district officials after the earthquake, failed to involve the parents and did not appreciate their strong desire to return students to class right away.

Sixteen-year-old Alon Aloni thought his forbearance had paid off, that the transfer to another school of a classmate who had taunted him with anti-Jewish comments and a death threat meant he had outlasted his tormentor. But earlier this month, when classes resumed at El Camino High School in Woodland Hills, Aloni discovered that the student he said had mounted a campaign of ethnic hatred had returned.

Freddie Spears scored from third on a wild pitch to cap a three-run seventh-inning rally Wednesday as host El Camino High School won its first Avocado League game of the season, 7-6, over Ramona. Julian Cortez homered in the sixth for El Camino (2-14, 1-6) and had three runs batted in. Scott Hertweck (1-5) went the distance despite allowing 10 hits and 9 runs. Ramona (8-7, 2-4) led, 4-0, before El Camino scored six times in the fourth.

A celebration will be in order hereabouts tonight. In fact, a celebration is already in order. The City of Oceanside is the home of a championship basketball team. Sam Williamson, an insurance agent and city councilman, was talking about it this week. "If they want a parade," he said, "we'll have it on Hill Street. It's the best street as far as closing down an area." A parade will definitely be in order, though the guests of honor will be in doubt until later this evening.

To win the Division II state girls basketball championship, all El Camino High School has to do is beat Pleasant Valley of Chico Saturday afternoon in the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Arena. That doesn't figure to be a simple task, even for the Wildcats, who have a 27-1 record this season. Pleasant Valley, ranked No. 2 in the state and eighth in the nation, has yet to lose in 27 games. The Vikings average 79 points a game and give up a mere 31.

Sharon Turner is recognized as San Diego County's finest prep girls basketball player. And the El Camino High School guard did nothing to alter her image Wednesday. Turner, a 5-foot 9-inch senior, scored 35 points, 16 in the first quarter, to lead the Wildcats to a 75-42 win against University in the San Diego Section 2-A championship game at the San Diego Sports Arena.
