"They hurt," she admits, trying hard to block out the pain. "I've got to go home and soak in the tub for a couple of hours, but I'll be all right. I'm used to this." It's a ritual for the Edison High senior, a side effect of being the No. 1 player on the Southern Section's No. 1 girls' soccer team.

For athletes such as 1988 Olympic shotputters Jim Doehring and Bonnie Dasse and Peter Campbell, a two-time Olympic water polo player, the Olympic Festival represents a chance to get together with friends--and rivals--while competing largely free of high stakes and pressure.
