It has been a summer for learning a new offense and getting used to new coaches for the state's most prolific sophomore quarterback from a year ago, Andrew Elffers of Pasadena Maranatha. He passed for 3,328 yards and 37 touchdowns while throwing mostly from a shotgun formation. The new coach, Peter Karavedas, a 27-year-old former defensive coordinator at Whittier Christian, hired Mike Owens, a former Van Nuys High and Oregon quarterback, to install a West Coast passing scheme, in which the quarterback takes the snap from under center, looks for quick releases and must make pinpoint passes.

On a cold, drizzly night, the baseball diamond at Jackie Robinson Stadium in Pasadena needs repairs if a game between Pasadena Maranatha and Brentwood is going to be played, and the person showing the best form handling a rake is one of the scheduled starting pitchers, Dylan Covey. In a couple of months, Covey, 18, figures to have enough money to buy his own landscaping company, but the fact that he isn't hiding in the warm, cozy Maranatha clubhouse in the middle of a steady rain validates what people have been saying about his impeccable character.

Orange Lutheran High School lost its last chance at a berth in the Southern Section 1-A playoffs by losing to Maranatha of Sierra Madre, 4-3, Saturday at Gahr High School. Saturday's game was a league playoff to decide which of the two teams tied for third place in the Olympic League would be its third representative in postseason play. Orange Lutheran trailed throughout the game, though designated hitter Chris Hunt went 2 for 3 with an RBI.

What is a six-team league will be missing at least one of its current members. Brethren Christian's move to the Academy League already has been approved by the Southern Section. Then, earlier this month, Sierra Madre Maranatha announced that it intends to join the Christian League.
