Chuck Schwal didn't have to sleep on it, didn't have to mull over the offer in his mind. He was offered the position as Poly High baseball coach Wednesday by Poly Principal Virginia Holt and leaped at the opportunity. "Oh, man, I've been working for years for this," Schwal said Friday. "What an opportunity." Schwal confirmed that he has accepted the position. Schwal, 33, coached the junior varsity at Kennedy for the past four seasons and also served as varsity pitching coach.

Jerry Cord is remembered by colleagues as always giving a good fight during his 18 seasons as the Poly High baseball coach. Although he hasn't coached in four years, Cord is still fighting--this time for his life. For the past year, Cord, 56, has battled Hodgkin's disease, a form of cancer that affects the lymph nodes. He met with a radiation therapist for the first time Wednesday before going to Dodger Stadium to watch Poly in the City Section 4-A Division championship game against Kennedy.

The rule book has been read, the film given a once-over, and coaches and players from the Sylmar and Poly high football teams are bracing for the worst. Seven players from Sylmar and five from Poly were ejected from a game Friday night after partaking in a little push 'n' shove dance that caused a 20- minute delay during the second quarter. Now comes the fun part: An attempt by school administrators to figure out who did what to whom, perhaps even why, and what to do about it.
