The banner at Redondo Union High School says it is the home of scholars and champs, and the U.S. Department of Education seems to agree. The department last week gave the school its highest recognition of excellence by including the school in its National Secondary Recognition Program. The award marks the school as "excellent in every aspect," said Department of Education spokeswoman Jane Glickman. Redondo Union was among the 214 junior and senior high schools in the country to achieve the honor, and the only one in the South Bay. Twenty-four junior and senior high schools in California also won the award.

Master Gunnery Sgt. Allen Roth maintained a stony silence and ramrod-straight military posture throughout his lengthy criminal trial on charges he molested one of his teen-age ROTC students. Finally, as he was found not guilty Tuesday morning in Torrance Superior Court, Roth slumped slightly, cracked a small smile and hastily wiped away a tear. A few moments later, after Superior Court Judge Francis Hourigan ordered the case closed, Roth was on his feet and embracing his wife, Barbara.

We are urging voters to vote Yes on Proposition V for school unification. Our students deserve the best education which can be provided if governed by the local Board of Education. Unification will be advantageous to North Redondo students as they can still choose to attend either Redondo Union High School or Mira Costa. The children are our future and we owe them the finest we can provide. MADISON SCHOOL PTA, Redondo Beach

From the day he took over the Redondo girls' volleyball program, Coach Tommy Chaffins set the bar high. Challenging for a Southern Section championship was openly discussed. Competing for a state title was worth dreaming about. Winning a Bay League crown and, along the way, defeating Manhattan Beach Mira Costa, well, those may be the toughest tasks of all. "It's definitely up there in terms of goals," senior captain Lauren Kirk said of beating the powerful Mustangs.

Not a trace of tension emanated from the Redondo boys' tennis team as top players competed recently in the Ocean League individual tournament. As matches unfolded on a nearby court, the players' sideline banter seemed confined to lighthearted topics. But when the subject turned to the Sea Hawks' postseason fate, the rhetoric took on a more urgent tone. "This is the year for us," junior Nick Berger said. Added Coach Jim Ball: "We know our window is this season."

An innovative program at Redondo Union High School to give all ninth-graders their own personal laptop computer for homework and assignments has been delayed. Freshmen were expecting to receive their 7-pound computers in November, but because of a manufacturing delay the computers will not arrive until February, said Pat Hosken, the school's director of technology. The school last week received 25 laptops from NetSchools Corp., the company that has the contract to provide the computers.
