Juan Carlos Ortiz lifts his palms skyward--his gesture magnified by a 15-foot Jumbotron television--and smiles. Always upbeat and encouraging, he is preaching to Latino worshipers at the Crystal Cathedral, a church that until five years ago had an all-Anglo congregation. They listen intently to the Spanish-language service, many of them fanning their faces with programs asthe sun beams through the 10,000 panes of glass that enclose the renowned Garden Grove church.

The adjustment paid off handsomely as Poly responded with its best offensive effort this season, handing previously undefeated Birmingham a 3-1 loss in a Valley Pac-8 Conference opener Wednesday at Poly.
