Ray White scored on a 24-yard touchdown run and rushed for 120 yards to lead Cerritos High School to an 8-0 victory over Fullerton Friday night at Gahr High School. White, a 5-foot 10-inch junior, was a starting wide receiver until this week when starter Darrell Thompson, an 1,100-yard rusher last year, injured his ankle and forced Cerritos Coach Wayne Manzo to make a change. "Ray is just a super athlete," Manzo said.

The Esperanza High School boys' soccer team kept shooting until the final seconds Saturday night when a shot by Brent Bish was tipped over the top of the goal by the Diamond Bar goalkeeper. The Aztecs simply could not score the goal they needed to send the Southern Section 3-A championship into overtime, and Diamond Bar, an unseeded team, upset the top-seeded, defending champion Aztecs, 2-1, in front of 1,000 at Gahr High School in Cerritos.

County prosecutors have decided to drop counterfeiting charges against an 18-year-old Gahr High School student who allegedly attempted to pass fake bills in the school lunch line. Deputy Dist. Atty. Greta Walker said because counterfeiting is a federal crime, the case against senior Francisco Martinez would have to be handled in federal court. "We were unable to find any state code that covered his actions," Walker said. "There is a federal law that covers them."

Already aglow in victory's unfamiliar warmth, the Gahr High School football players did not need the late-afternoon sun that slanted onto their worn practice field. It was a Thursday, and the San Gabriel Valley League's surprise first-place team was not burdened by shoulder pads. Some players were even shirtless, but all wore dark blue helmets. They stuck mostly to their work, their attention drifting only when a car, booming music, pulled into a parking lot. "Let's go, let's go . . .

Students at Gahr High School wonder what all the fuss is about. Every school-day morning since March 6, students at the Cerritos high school have been watching a new teen-oriented TV news broadcast called Channel One, produced by Whittle Communications of Knoxville, Tenn.

Mission Viejo High School Coach Bill Crow was despondent, even in victory. While the Diablos managed to advance to the Southern Conference football semifinals with a 23-9 victory over Cerritos Friday night, it was a struggle. You can call it winning ugly or victory by attrition. Crow just said, "It's something we can't do in the semifinals." A crowd of 3,000 at Gahr High School watched the Diablos (11-1) pile up 143 yards in penalties, throw two interceptions and fumble once. And still win.

Friday's CIF Southern Conference playoff game between Los Alamitos and Cerritos high schools marked the teams' first meeting--despite the fact they are located just four miles apart. That was obvious by the fact the announcer at Hanford Rant Stadium at Gahr High School told the 2,900 spectators that some Cerritos fans were wondering just what their opponents' mascot, the Griffin, actually consisted of.

Critics have expressed dismay at the prospect of commercial television in the classroom. But students at Gahr High School, one of six schools in the nation that will soon view daily teen-oriented news broadcasts complete with commercials, say they are quite capable of "tuning out" commercial messages. "Commercials don't make me run out and buy things," said junior Heidi Harris, 17. Their teachers agreed.

In left field of the baseball stadium at Gahr High School--a place that has known many champions--a football team that knows little about winning tackled the thick air of a sweltering summer morning. In the distance, where bleachers rose to meet a smoggy sky, the sounds of the Gladiator marching band echoed. Heard above the fight songs and the din of traffic on the nearby Artesia Freeway was the voice of Coach Steve Silberman, who patiently prodded and applauded his players.
