Until the early 1970s, girls' high school athletic competition was treated like a social event. Punch and cookies were served after an intramural basketball game or field hockey match. There were no section or State championships to be won. No pep rallies or long bus trips to special competitions. Interscholastic athletics, after all, was for the boys . But 20 years later, girls' athletics has come a long way. Boys' State championship banners share wall space with those won by girls.

Craig Tefertiller, girls' volleyball coach at El Modena High, used his powers of persuasion when Marni Hichborn and Melizza Benitez tried out for his team three years ago. He convinced Hichborn and her parents that she should continue to play despite struggling with grades during her eighth-grade year. She improved her grades, and started as a freshman on the varsity. And he persuaded his assistant coaches not to cut Benitez, a newcomer to the sport, from the freshman-sophomore team.

When top-seeded La Habra High School played La Jolla in the first round of the Southern California Division II playoffs Tuesday night, it wasn't just a ho-hum victory by La Habra. It was more like ho-hum-yawn. Powered by middle-hitter Missy Clements' 14 kills, La Habra swept La Jolla, 15-4, 15-4, 15-7. "Missy was hot early so we tried to got to her a little more," La Habra Coach Sandy Blumenthal said. Early? The entire match lasted just 75 minutes. The second game took 15 minutes.

School: La Habra High Sport: Volleyball Position: Outside hitter Class: Senior Because La Habra lost to graduation three 6-foot players from the team that won its second consecutive Southern Section and state championships, some believed the Highlanders would slip a bit this season. So far that hasn't happened. La Habra won another section Division 3-A title and Kristich, 6 feet 5, deserves much of the credit.
