The girls at Ramona High School have troubles of their own. Troubles with gangs, with grades, with truancy, troubles with drugs, with foster homes, with babies. That's why they're here--the tiny campus in Boyle Heights was founded half a century ago as a haven for troubled girls.

SAN DIEGO -- Classmates were mourning the death of a student at Ramona High School in northeast San Diego County. He died Wednesday after being hit in the chest with a ball. The 16-year-old sophomore was playing over-the-line, a softball-like sport, during a physical education class when he was struck by a line drive. He later collapsed and was taken to a local hospital, where he was declared dead. Friends told Fox 5 News that he was a good athlete who played freshman football.

The dean's message for her newest high school students was couched in the cold, hard language of a prison intake center. "We have students from 20 gangs here, but they don't flag it or flaunt it, and neither will you," Frances Vilaubi told the young women on their first day at Ramona High School, an all-girl campus four miles east of downtown. Ramona's dress code allowed two colors, blue and white, she said. No polka dots, stripes, plaids or logos.

The theft is one of more than a dozen that have occurred in the last year and the second this week, officials said.

More than 200 people filled a chapel and spilled out to the sidewalk Wednesday at a memorial service for Leanora Annette Wong, as a minister told them the slaying "was not an act of God." At the hourlong service, the Rev. Warren Jarrard told the subdued crowd of family and friends that he shared with them "the common emptiness of loss." The question most in his mind in the days since her killing was, "Why?"
