Sarah Smallwood of Tustin is perplexed by her best-dressed title. "I think dressing nice--not grungy--is important," the 18-year-old says. "I guess I get compliments on my clothes. I certainly don't make fashion a priority in my life." But even on a day that she's wearing an outfit she considers "no big deal," Sarah looks put-together in a cropped denim vest and flirty black and white dress. "I like dresses. I think they're comfortable, and I like to feel feminine." She loves sun dresses, though lately she's favored short "Brady Bunch" dresses with colored tights.

It's the time of year in high school basketball when players are banged up but still find a way to play, and that's what is happening with standout point guard Michael Caffey of Corona Centennial. He injured his ankle Tuesday night during the Southern California Division I regionals. His coach, Josh Giles, didn't expect him to play Thursday, but Caffey did his best, and now he'll try to keep playing on Saturday in a semifinal showdown with Woodland Hills Taft at 5 p.m. at Corona Roosevelt.
