A senior at Azusa High School will be the first transgender student to play on the girls' varsity softball team, school officials said Friday. Patrick Cordova-Goff, 17, who goes by Pat, is a member of the cheer squad and student body president. She could also be the state's first transgender student to play softball at a high school. Pat, who played baseball in her freshman year, began trying out for the softball team two weeks ago, said Azusa Unified School District Supt. Linda Kaminski.  The transgender teen learned she made the softball team when high school officials posted tryout results Thursday, Kaminski said.

Re: "UC Applications: Tough Time for the Deadline-Challenged" (Dec. 1): How ironic that the six Huntington Beach Union High School District campuses are among the 10 in Orange County that shunned the UC guaranteed admission offer to students in the top 4% of their class. The experience of children in our family has been that students are encouraged to attend junior colleges. College counseling is not available. Marina High School has a solid offering of advanced placement courses, yet the percentage is extremely low of students going on to four-year institutions.
