Up and down the beaches of Southern California, thousands of teen-agers stare past the rolling waves and fantasize about life after graduation--escaping from high school without getting stuck in the 9-to-5 grind, making big bucks without holding down a real job . . . in short, growing older without growing up. Dream on, you say? Well, check out this dude named Jeff Maier, Irvine's original surf-rat-slash-computer-phenom who invented the surfin' answer to the mechanical bull of "Urban Cowboy."

Five wrestlers from three South Bay high schools placed in the top six or better in their weight divisions Saturday at the Masters Meet at Fountain Valley High School. That qualified them for the state meet at the University of the Pacific in Stockton this weekend. Inglewood Morningside's Danny Katoa and West Torrance's Josh Gormley, two of the area's best hopes for a state championship, both made it to the final matches in their divisions at the Masters.

* 1910 -- Nap Lajoie, in a batting race with Ty Cobb, collected eight hits for Cleveland in a season-ending doubleheader with the Browns. The hits were somewhat tainted, however, as St. Louis third baseman Red Corriden played back as Lajoie bunted safely six times. Regardless, Cobb was awarded the batting title by a fraction of a point. * 1916 -- Babe Ruth outpitched Sherry Smith of the Brooklyn Dodgers as the Boston Red Sox won the longest World Series game, 2-1, in 14 innings.

The Toronto Sun's top five reasons why even regular-season hockey is better than postseason baseball: 5) Twelve-year-olds can't grab pucks to prevent goals. 4) Hockey doesn't have Albert Belle, Eddie Murray or Roberto Alomar. 3) Hockey has a commissioner, even if he is a lawyer. 2) Who would you rather have, Don Cherry or Tim McCarver? 1) In hockey, everybody is in the action. Baseball is mostly two guys playing catch and seven guys spitting.

Tony Koester, the radio voice of the Sacramento Solons of the Pacific Coast League from 1937 until 1957, died the other day and his death brought back memories of a different era in broadcasting baseball games. Koester, 93, did road games from the studio, relying on brief descriptions on a telegraph wire and sound effects, such as hitting a board with a pencil before describing a hit. When there were breakdowns or delays in the Teletype reports, he had to be creative.

Now, Robbie Alomar may wish that he had been suspended after all. Baseball has a wonderful way of squaring its books. Sometimes, the process takes years. This time, 16 days was enough. Alomar went from spitting in an umpire's face to ending up with egg on his own. The Great Expectorator, whom many fans think should have been on an enforced holiday during the playoffs, ended the season wearing a Scarlet E.

Westlake High's Billy Hunter, devastated by a loss in the quarterfinals, threw his battered character on the mat four times Saturday in the state wrestling tournament at University of the Pacific. Hunter, the top-seeded wrestler in the 175-pound division, was on a mission to prove he was worthy of the 37-0 record he brought to Stockton. He had seen so many favorites lose in the championship bracket, then suffer emotional letdowns that led them to the wrestling graveyard.

Moments after West Torrance High School's Josh Gormley won the state heavyweight wrestling championship Saturday night, his coach, Kent Wyatt, let him know that victory would be sweet. "Even before I got off the mat," Gormley said, "he said, 'Let's go get ice cream.' " "We usually go out for pizza," Wyatt said.

Michael Johnson's sweep of the 200 and 400 meters at the Olympics, never previously accomplished by a man in the same Summer Games, was voted the top sports story of the year in an Associated Press poll released Thursday. Johnson's feat, capped by a record-shattering 19.32-second clocking in the 200, narrowly won story-of-the-year honors over the story of the event where it happened and the problems at that event, the Centennial Summer Games at Atlanta.
