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.

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.
