FAIRFAX HIGH SCHOOL Chris Jordan says he likes to combine East and West coast styles of dressing. His plaid Polo hat is more of an East Coast style, he says, while his baggy jeans are West Coast. "I like to dress casual," says Jordan, 18, who lives in Los Angeles and will attend Santa Monica College in the fall. His favorite look is a leather jacket with jeans, tennis shoes and a long shirt. "I don't like the high school atmosphere," he says. "I like street style." Favorite store: Eddie Bauer.

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.

The Webb Schools, a private high school in Claremont, is a magnet for college recruiters from around the country and the world. This fall, 113 Ivy League and other schools sent representatives to the campus - more than the 106 students in the senior class. At Jefferson High School, a low-income public school with 280 seniors in South Los Angeles, eight recruiters from local universities showed up. Recruiters' visits often are an important first contact for students to discover campuses far beyond their hometowns and for the colleges to discover talented applicants.

Even from a distance, the man catches your attention. Hovering close to the pool's edge, he stalks back and forth, throwing his arms into the air, thrusting his hips. Moments of intense silence - his eyes like pinpoints - give way to outbursts. "No, no," he hollers. "Is anyone listening to me?" Jovan Vavic is just warming up, just getting started with practice for the women's water polo team at USC. His players tread water, heads bobbing above the surface, listening to a voice that booms deep and thick with an Eastern European accent.
