Meg Gallagher and Rhonda Weyer played basketball together for four years at Cal State Fullerton, where they not only developed into good players, but became good friends. Though their collegiate careers have ended, they still are teammates, working together on their passing, shooting, dribbling and fast breaks. But the sport they are playing isn't basketball. It's team handball, which was introduced to the United States several years ago, and gained exposure last year during the Olympics.

The U.S. Olympic Festival this week at Oklahoma City will provide different opportunities for the 75 or so Orange County athletes who will participate.
