A 15-year-old was convicted Monday of second-degree murder for fatally stabbing a Rancho Alamitos High School football star when a fight over a Volkswagen bug escalated out of control, officials said. Gregory Allen Callison was 14 years old--and large for his age--when he stabbed 18-year-old Moudka Chounlamany during a March 8 confrontation on a Garden Grove street.

Rancho Alamitos football Coach Doug Case announced he is leaving the school after seven years "to pursue other opportunities closer to home." Home for Case is north Tustin, where his three children attend school. Case, 36, covets the Foothill job, which opened when Casey Mazzotta resigned after two seasons to be an assistant at Fullerton College. "For the Foothill job to open up less than two miles from my home is a dream come true," Case said.

A former vice principal at Rancho Alamitos High School in Garden Grove pleaded innocent Thursday to impregnating a student at the school, a secret they apparently kept for two years, authorities say. Miguel Vivanco, 42, of Costa Mesa is charged with having sex with a 17-year-old in 1996. She subsequently gave birth and is pregnant with his second child, police said.

The Rancho Alamitos boys finished third in the league last season with a 9-5 record and were 12-10 overall. Hamamoto inherits junior varsity and sophomore teams that finished first.

A chlorine spill at Rancho Alamitos High School early Wednesday caused minor respiratory problems for a school employee but no serious injuries, firefighters said. A worker repairing a 150-pound steel cylinder filled with chlorine gas in a pool chemical storage area discovered the leak about 8:30 a.m. and alerted authorities. About 20 firefighters took about an hour and a half to control the leak in the 11300 block of Dale Street.

I enjoyed reading the article entitled "High School Artists See Their Best at Golden West" (March 25). It was a fine tribute to the talented artists profiled. I was disappointed, however, that no mention was made of the art teacher who successfully taught nearly all the award winners. I refer to Tom Wendt of Rancho Alamitos High School in Garden Grove. It was no accident that his students won so many of these awards. His students consistently take top honors at juried showings and contests and they have been doing so for years--in spite of the fact that Rancho Alamitos is one of the smallest high schools in the county.

Fullerton High alumnus D.C. Olsen's county record for home runs (13) in a single season stood for seven years before Laguna Hills' Nick Harvey surpassed his mark last season with 15. A year later, Harvey's record is being threatened. Rancho Alamitos catcher Tony Serna leads the county with eight home runs halfway through this season. And Serna, a senior who has driven in 21 runs, is doing this while trying to master one of game's most demanding positions.

Rancho Alamitos running back Alex Blanco was lying on his back in excruciating pain, knowing the Pacifica defender's helmet that slammed into his right knee had caused some serious damage. Blanco knew a second major knee injury might not only cut short his dream senior season, but could also end his dreams of a college scholarship.

Pacifica quarterback J.D. Stern is, by all accounts, a typical teen. He loves sports, has a hard time sitting in one spot too long, and waits eagerly for the day he gets his own apartment. If you want to get on his dour side, however, just say: "Rancho Alamitos." Rancho Alamitos has been a sore point for Stern. His senior class has not beaten the Vaqueros. They'll get one final chance tonight in the Southern Section Division VIII semifinals. The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Bolsa Grande High.
