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.
