Speaking with Robby Price--straight-A student, Alpine explorer, junior theologian, and heavy metal drummer--is always a pleasure. The Saddleback High School distance runner, recently named Scholar-Athlete of the Year by the CIF, is so diverse and well-spoken that his athletic ability often is an afterthought. Perhaps that shouldn't be, as Price has proved to be the one of the state's fastest distance runners this year.

As a public school teacher, I can't remember when an article upset me more than the sports feature (May 17) on Robby Price, the California Interscholastic Federation Scholar-Athlete of the Year who has a 4.8 grade-point average and has to hide his scholastic honors so that he won't be known as a "schoolie"--his term for egghead, nerd or bookworm. His running, however, can be openly spoken of, a talent that he admits is not going to last. Although he perceptively admits to The Times that the important question is "What are you going to do for people?"

The last time Saddleback High School's Robby Price attempted to run three races in one track meet, he ended up with a stress facture in his foot and a painful lesson. Because of his efforts in a dual meet last year, Price had to spend the rest of his junior track season watching from the stands. Friday, at the Sea View League championships at Rancho Santiago College, Price tried another triple. This time, though, he came away healthy and with three first-place finishes.

Like most high school administrators, Marina Athletic Director Larry Doyle knows plenty of ways his department could spend $500. There's equipment to buy. Bleachers to fix. Transportation costs to offset. But with $2.6 million in budget cuts for the next school year facing the Huntington Beach Union High School District, Doyle figured he would need to land on Fantasy Island to make any of those dreams come true.

The night before a cross-country race, Eddie Salinas neatly lays out his Saddleback High School uniform--neon yellow shorts, white singlet, blue racing socks and shoes--on his bedroom floor. He then loads his cassette deck with heavy metal tunes, dons his headphones and goes to sleep--on the floor beside his uniform. "I'm not really superstitious, but a lot of times when I do this it gives me luck," Salinas said.

Sorry, but I'm not much of a morning person." --Brea-Olinda guard Aimee McDaniel, who emerged from the locker room wearing pink slippers after Auburn Placer had ended the Lady Cats' 55-game winning streak in the State Division III championship game played in the early morning. I'm not going to Disneyland; I'm going to Vegas!" --Esperanza sprinter Roshawn Sims, after winning three events at the Orange County Track and Field Championships. If we do wind up ranked No.

In the span of several hours Friday night, Susannah Thrasher won a Southern Section track title, taking six seconds off her career-best time in the process, and was named queen of her senior prom at Villa Park High School. A magical evening, to be sure. Thrasher had not expected to be named prom queen, but the track title--the 3-A 1,600 meters--was a bit less surprising, considering it was something Thrasher had been working toward for the past three years.

Never mind that the announcer had trouble pronouncing his name, or that the evening was a bit too chilly for most of his peers. Phouphet Singbandith was simply having the night of his life Saturday at the Arcadia Invitational. From his first hop, skip and jump of the evening, the Magnolia High School senior knew the triple jump competition was his. By the time he had finished his third jump, Singbandith owned not only a first-place medal, but also a meet and Orange County record as well.

Teeth-gritting tenacity. Frightening intensity. A near-demonic look. . . . When she's at her best on the homestretch, PattiSue Plumer personifies the will to win. While it might not always bring her to the finish line first, Plumer's ability to handle race pain--that incomparable burn of arms, legs and mind--has brought her to the forefront of women's distance running in the United States.
