John Hattrup, the new girls' basketball coach at Brea-Olinda High, says he doesn't mind the spotlight that accompanies the position with the high-profile program. Hattrup will take over for Mark Trakh, who led the Ladycats to four State championships and five Southern Section titles in the last five seasons. Trakh, who had a 356-42 record in 13 seasons at Brea-Olinda, will coach women's basketball at Pepperdine this season.

John Hattrup, who coached the Brea-Olinda girls' basketball team to an unbeaten season, the State title and a No. 1 national ranking, has resigned after only one year on the job. A walk-on coach whose trademark was intense preparation, Hattrup, who resigned Tuesday, said Wednesday he was looking for a job with more permanence. Hattrup, 35, taught two physical education classes at Brea, a physical education class at Brea Junior High, and was a substitute the other three class periods.

Beaten, battered, hanging by a bolt, Mission Viejo may be the cozy home of the California Promise, but it's certainly bullish on basketball rims. The iron hoop, dangling on the north end of the Mission Viejo High School auxiliary gym, greets members of the Diablos' girls' basketball team, which, after a few days off for the holidays, is back at practice with its coach, the meanest man in girls' basketball.

John Hattrup, Mission Viejo High School girls' basketball coach, may not return next season as Diablo coach. Hattrup, 28, is in his 10th season at Mission Viejo. Under Hattrup, the Diablos have won two Southern Section titles (1982 and 1987) and played in the Division II final of the state championship tournament in 1982. Hattrup said that while he is happy coaching at Mission Viejo, he also wants to teach. He earned his teaching credential four years ago, but has yet to be hired.

Jeff Sink, the third-winningest girls' basketball coach in Alaska history, was named Friday to coach Brea-Olinda's program. Sink, 43, was hired in October, 1993, to teach history for the 1994-95 school year. He saw the four-time defending State champion Ladycats during the playoffs while on a house-hunting trip to the area in March. He was a finalist for the position last year, but the job went to Brea assistant John Hattrup. Brea-Olinda finished 33-0 and was ranked No. 1 in one national poll.

Brea-Olinda, facing its stiffest challenge to date, turned in a performance indicative of a national champion Wednesday night in Anchorage at the Alaska Invitational. The Ladycats, ranked fifth nationally by USA Today, scored a 65-55 victory over sixth-ranked Cleveland (Ohio) Trinity (5-1). "We came in knowing that if we win, we'll never be lower than No. 5 if we don't lose again," Brea Coach John Hattrup said. "I'm not saying this was a national championship game, but it might have been."

It took three months, about 1,600 regular-season games and 31 playoff games, but the Southern Section has finally arrived on its 3-A finalists. Katella and Mission Viejo will play for the Southern Section 3-A championship tonight at 7 in Cal Poly Pomona's Kellogg Gymnasium. Is this the best they could do? Oh, nothing against Mission Viejo or Katella. Both deserve to be in the final. Each team is 27-2.

Nicole Erickson scored 25 points and had four assists to lead Brea-Olinda to the championship of the Ladycat Classic girls' basketball tournament with an easy 65-38 victory over Cerritos Gahr Saturday night at Brea-Olinda High. Erickson, the tournament MVP, made eight of 13 shots, including four three-pointers, to offset a cold shooting night by her teammates as Brea shot only 40% from the floor. That was still a lot better than Gahr, which shot only 34%.
