Looking back at that crazy 1999 season, Richmond High School Coach Ken Carter was at his wit's end with his underachieving basketball team: The problem wasn't on the court, where his players had raced to a 13-0 record--the best ever for the violence-plagued school in this blue-collar East Bay town. The troubles were in the classroom, where many athletes were skipping lessons and blowing off assignments, riding high on a wave of popularity that only an undefeated season can bring.

Re "A deeper lesson in gang rape," Column, Nov. 7 Good for Sandy Banks. She has grasped the disturbing significance of the Richmond High School gang rape. It is far more frightening than the shootings at Ft. Hood, Texas. No matter how terrible, the shootings were the act of one deranged individual. As Banks points out, the gang rape was a community event. Everyone shares the responsibility -- students, teachers and parents. It should be a wake-up call about the decay in our social values.

Sometimes winning just isn't good enough. That's the hard lesson Richmond High School's basketball coach says he decided to teach his players--all 45 of them, on three teams--by locking them out of their gymnasium and canceling their games and practices in a year when the Oilers' record so far is 13-0.

When Dinuba High School arrived at McLane Stadium for its game with Fresno Hoover, it found banners proclaiming "57 Is Great and She's a Girl" and "We Love You, Bridget." Strange messages for a football stadium, but their meaning became clear late in the third quarter when Hoover scored the game's first touchdown and 5-foot-1 1/2, 100-pound Bridget Farris ran onto the field to kick the point-after-touchdown. Hoover fans chanted "Brid-get! Brid-get!"

A 16-year-old student with a liking for limousines was arrested in Richmond after illegally lining up a luxury car to take him and two female friends for a spin, police said. Sgt. Robert Flores said a reservations clerk at Executive Limousine Service in Walnut Creek got suspicious earlier last week about a caller who sounded as if he were trying to disguise his voice so as to sound older.

A 15-year-old girl who went to her homecoming dance at Richmond High School was gang raped and beaten for at least two hours while more than a dozen witnesses saw the assault but failed to call police, authorities said Monday. The attack occurred Saturday around 9:30 p.m. after the girl had left the dance and was waiting for a ride from her father. A male student she knew took her to a dark alley behind one of the school buildings where he and about six others began raping and beating her, police said.

If only more student athletes could have the good fortune of playing for a coach like Ken Carter of the Bay Area's Richmond High School. The fact that few do is borne out by college graduation statistics and the many stories of those who dropped through society's cracks into poverty and obscurity once their athletic talent was lost through age or injury. Graduation rates for collegiate athletes playing men's basketball, for example, are abysmally low among all races.
