Three years ago, a tiny 10-year-old Fullerton girl made national news by outrunning national-class distance runners twice her age. If she didn't burn out, many observed, Carrie Garritson could become one of the best high school runners in Orange County history. But Michael Garritson, Carrie's father, had other plans for his daughter's running--none of which had anything to do with high school competition.

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.

Open enrollment might forever alter the face of high school athletics, leading to the formation of high-powered "district teams" that compete in super leagues based on district enrollment. Far-fetched? Not to Bob Cooper, the Hoover High baseball coach of 20 years.

Leland Sparks, a fifth-year senior at Mater Dei High School, was granted an extra year of athletic eligibility on Wednesday, which could clear the way for him to compete for the Monarchs in the 1990-91 school year. A three-member panel of the Southern Section executive committee waived the section's eight-semester rule, which allows a student to compete only four years at the high school level.

Here's the continuing dilemma facing coaches, parents and fans across the state: Who do you root for in the soap opera known as open enrollment?

Dolores Tuimoloau deals with that look nearly every day. "People see me and I can see that they don't want to look at me," she says. "I say to myself, 'I wish that person would get to know me.' When they see my smile, they'll say, 'Oh, she's OK.'
