Name: Annette Quintana Company: Western High School, Anaheim Thumbs up: "Because I was an athlete--I played volleyball in college--I thought I'd go into coaching so I could stay in the game. I like the competition involved and teaching the game. I like coaching boys because I like the physical part of their game. I think boys learn the physical aspects of the game a lot quicker, but the girl athletes learn the mental intricacies faster." Thumbs down: "All the paperwork.

Kentucky cross-country athlete Codie Thacker was told at a recent meet she had to wear bib number 666. So, she decided not to race. And that gives her something in common with Ronald Reagan (see below). Thacker told local NBC affiliate LEX 18 she had trained for Saturday's race for months.  But she could not bring herself to put on that number. She felt it put her relationship with God at risk . Some background: The number 666 is the biblical mark of the beast.  In the book of Revelation, two beasts arise -- the first a seven-headed beast from the sea. It's this monster whose number must be imprinted on everyone's right hand or forehead.

I read with great interest "No Grade, No Play" (Pro-Con, March 23). As a former participant in a high school music program, I am disappointed in the attitudes expressed by Santa Monica English teacher Carol Jago [who argued for grade requirements]. It is because of people like her, who view arts and athletics programs as extracurricular rather than cocurricular, that music programs are dwindling, drama programs have no places to perform and student athletes are begging family members for money under the guise of fund-raising.

High school sports are becoming increasingly popular with teens, and with that comes injuries. A new study reveals that fractures are not to be taken lightly. They are they fourth-most-common injury and can cause players to drop out of competition and rack up medical procedures. The study, published recently in the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine , looked at fractures that occurred among high school athletes at 100 randomly selected high schools around the country from 2005 to 2009.

For the third time in 18 months, an Alisal High School athlete has died in a highway wreck. On Sunday, Vantory Miles, a starting guard on the school's 2002 championship basketball team, was killed in a one-car crash in Merced. He is the second member of the 2001-02 team to die in a crash. In March 2002, Jose Solis died when a car he was riding in flipped over in Southern California. About a month later, football player Raul Perez was killed in a car crash near King City.

A lawsuit filed in 2010 by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange and Santa Ana Mater Dei against the CIF Southern Section lives on, and attorney fees for the CIF have exceeded $109,000, CIF Executive Director Roger Blake said Monday. A status conference is scheduled for Nov. 5 in Orange County Superior Court. No trial date has been scheduled after a previous date last February was vacated. The status conference will come just days after a scheduled Oct. 29 vote at the CIF State Federated Council, where Mater Dei and the Trinity League are supporting a proposal that would remove the wording "athletically motivated transfer" from all CIF rules.

Grant Rohach, the standout quarterback at Moorpark High, just got back after spending five days in Iowa on his grandfather's farm, helping feed cows and goats. "It's very quiet," he said. "There's not a lot of people. " It was one of the few breaks Rohach will get this summer, because high school athletes simply don't have time to stop training. "You wake up in the morning. It's not, 'I'm going to the beach today.' I have football," Rohach said. "It's just a continuous thing.

The TV networks could be scrambling for programming if the NFL lockout lasts into the fall, which is a good reason someone with a video camera should be showing up to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame scholar-athlete banquets to tape the inspiring stories of teenagers making a difference on and off the field. From Orange County to San Bernardino County, from the San Fernando Valley to the San Gabriel Valley, dozens of high school seniors are having their accomplishments recognized this month.

Better medical care for high school athletes is an oft-stated goal, but trying to mandate it through legislation has been a political football in California for years. Nearly a decade ago, Assembly Bill 760 was passed, providing $500,000 to place certified athletic trainers at some schools. Before it could happen, though, the money was swept back into the general fund to help replace budget shortfalls. The California Athletic Trainers' Assn. has spearheaded several legislation drives since then, with the stated goal of "requiring licensure for all athletic trainers" and "for every school in California to employ one. " None of the bills has passed.

Rain, rain, go away. That was the sentiment of most area high school athletic directors and coaches whose sports schedules were left in limbo by Tuesday's vicious storm. Athletic directors spent much of the day on the phone to counterparts at other high schools to decide the fate of this week's scheduled sporting events. Rain-swollen soccer fields and leaky gymnasiums, not to mention closed highways and high schools, made for headaches.

No doctor was waiting on the sideline when JaVion Hartford limped off the field in the second quarter. No trainer came over to examine his painful right knee. No one hurried to bring him ice. The linebacker from tiny Animo Leadership High sat alone on the bench until an assistant coach checked on him, followed a while later by the head coach, who could only guess that Hartford had suffered a hyperextension. "Don't try to be a hero," Coach Jamar Hamilton told him. "I don't want you to play.
