Two days after her final basketball game as a Brea-Olinda Ladycat, Jody Anton's voice was still filled with emotion. "I'm going to miss everything," Anton said. "It's hard to realize you'll never be able to play high school basketball again." But she's not going without leaving her mark in county girls' basketball. Or without the trophy for The Times Orange County player of the year. For the past four years, Anton thrilled crowds with her all-around excellence wherever the Ladycats played.

Clare Walker and Angie White laugh about the day nearly four years ago when they stood shoulder to shoulder, posing for a photo to accompany their making The Times Orange County All-County team. "We talk about it a lot," said Walker. " If you had told me four years ago that we would be on the same team. . . . " Back then, Walker played at Huntington Beach and White was at Capistrano Valley. Walker had just been signed by former Pepperdine coach Ron Fortner. White was headed to Nevada Las Vegas.

The Brea-Olinda High School girls' basketball team finally put away Valencia, its troublesome Orange League rival, in the final moments Thursday for a 60-50 victory at Valencia. Few teams give Brea as much trouble as Valencia and Brea Coach Mark Trakh was relieved the Wildcats were able to hang on for the victory. "They just pose a lot of problems for us," Trakh said. "We spent hours preparing for this game watching videotapes. I'm glad we don't have to see them again until next season."

The memory remains firmly stamped in Jody Anton's mind. "I never said this to anyone before, but I felt that if I ever got back to Oakland, I never wanted to experience that feeling again," Anton said. Anton, the 5-foot-11 junior forward for the Brea-Olinda High School girls' basketball team, was talking about the team's 54-43 loss to Auburn Placer in the Division III State championship game last March in the Oakland Coliseum Arena. The defeat shook Anton and her teammates.

Many figured Jody Anton would develop into a world-class swimmer during her nine years as a member of Anaheim Aquatics Assn. swim club. Anton was once ranked as one of the top junior swimmers in the state in the butterfly, breaststroke and freestyle events. She was invited to try out for the U.S. national water polo team as a seventh-grader. Others thought she would develop into a top athlete in track and field after she finished second in the high jump in the Jesse Owens Games as a youngster.

School: Brea-Olinda High Sport: Basketball Position: Forward Class: Junior With Brea-Olinda trailing Ventura, 23-22, at halftime in the Division II-AA title game Saturday, Lady Cats Coach Mark Trakh tried to put his players at ease by reminding them they didn't have to win the game to qualify for the state playoffs. But the reminder didn't relax Anton. "She said, really loud so the other kids could hear, 'We're not going to lose this game,' and I believed her," Trakh said.

Lace up those sneakers. Dust off the flashy headband. Inflate the old ball. It's time again for Southern Section girls' basketball in Orange County, which is traditionally a hotbed of leading teams and players in the state. And this season should be no different. Yes, some of last year's top names are gone. That's an unavoidable reality every season. But the county still has many talented players who should create plenty of excitement in the next few months.

School: Brea-Olinda High Sport: Basketball Position: Forward Class: Senior Anton, a four-year starter at forward, led Brea-Olinda in scoring (16-point average) and rebounding (nine) this season, but in the Ladycats' 47-44 victory over Healdsburg in the State Division III title game, she showed her versatility goes far beyond statistics. Sure, Anton had game highs in scoring (19) and rebounding (16), but she also played all five positions, Brea Coach Mark Trakh said.
