Leonard Martinez says he thanked a baseball coach at Katella High School last year for telling him he didn't have what it took to make the team. That judgment drove the soft-spoken 16-year-old to something he might not have thought possible without those harsh words--to be elected senior class president. At Katella High in Anaheim, no other Latino student has won that position or any other spot in student government. "That really stuck with me," Martinez said of the coach's words.

The dark cloud that has followed Cleveland Indian pitcher Jaret Wright the last two seasons reappeared suddenly this spring, reminding him once again that nothing comes easily. Wright had just tossed his 60th and final warmup pitch before an exhibition last month against Detroit in Florida. He was about to test his surgically repaired right shoulder, throwing against major league batters for the first time in 10 months. "This storm came out of nowhere," Wright said.

On a balmy evening last June, Kevin Carlson and Martha Pinto, teammates at Katella High School, danced in gleeful celebration as more than 10,000 track and field fans watched at Cerritos College. Distance, height and time brought the pair together, an odd couple if ever there was one. Carlson, 6-feet-4, had just cleared 7 feet in the high jump, breaking a seven-year-old Orange County record.

No one is talking anymore about having Anaheim high school students jump to their feet in respect whenever an adult enters the room. But while the quirky proposal has died, it also has given birth to a thought-provoking community discussion about the importance of respect shown by and toward teenagers--and what the schools' role in promoting it should be.

If there is a symbol that best describes the Katella boys' cross-country team, senior Danny Mejia envisions a chain--no stronger in front than in back, any link capable of replacing another, with the overall strength remaining the same. It's the ultimate goal in cross-country. Pack your runners close together and near the front. The first runner pulls the second, the second pulls the third, and so on.

The family of a 15-year-old Katella High School student who has been missing for more than a month appealed to the public for help in locating her. Jennifer Lee Burrel was last seen at the school March 5. Since then, family, friends and others at spots she frequented have been unable to provide clues to her whereabouts. Thomas Martin, a private investigator hired by the girl's family, said he has exhausted all efforts to find her. "In a word, we're at ground zero," he said.

Tom Danley, boys' basketball coach at Katella High since the school opened in 1966, resigned his position Thursday night after his team's awards banquet. Danley, 62, had hinted at the decision for months. He said this season his job as athletic director for the Anaheim Union High School District was taking more of his time and he didn't feel he could put the time into coaching that he wanted to. "It's not the end," Danley said Thursday. "It's the beginning of going in a new direction."
