There's something growing on Roberto Nelson's chin. Since he's 14, he thinks it's the start of a goatee. Others view it as only peach fuzz. Seeing Nelson giggle and laugh on the Santa Barbara High School bench, it's clear how young he is. On the basketball court, however, he's no ordinary freshman. "He's a phenomenal freshman, the best kid I've seen at his age," Coach Jeff Lavender said. At 6 feet 3 and 175 pounds, Nelson is a starting guard with athleticism, instincts and intelligence.

As a high school senior and editor of Santa Barbara High School's newspaper, the Forge, I was interested to read of the financial demise of numerous Los Angeles-area high school newspapers. The problems faced by these high school publications are disturbing and sad. As school districts across the state face the fact that budgets need to be reduced, high school papers are an easy target for cuts. Our school district is no exception, and as a result the Forge's staff and adviser have been forced to look in new directions for the money we need to print our paper.

Part of sports tradition requires teammates to shake hands and offer high-fives in a display of unity. The dirty little secret, though, is that some players don't like each other, whether it's because of jealousy or selfishness. When the going gets tough, the carefully choreographed gestures are exposed for what they are -- phony. At Santa Barbara High, however, there's nothing fake about how members of the boys' basketball team treat each other.

Santa Barbara's Access Theatre, through its Youth Access to the Arts program, will present "Leap! A Musical Quest" at the Santa Barbara High School Performing Arts Center. The multimedia musical centers around a teen-ager who has checked out of life and is spiraling downward. But thanks to the magic of theater, he discovers himself, and the hopes, loves and innocence of life. Preview shows are Friday and July 20 at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for children).

Santa Barbara High boys' tennis Coach Jack Trigueiro, referred to by his players as the team's drill sergeant, had one of his few calm moments on the courts Wednesday afternoon. After a 14-4 victory over University at the Irvine Racquet Club gave the Dons the Southern Section 4-A Division championship, Trigueiro called this year's team his best ever. That is saying at a lot at Santa Barbara, which has won four consecutive titles and six in seven years. The Dons have won nine titles.

Things were starting to look up for Teodor Russinov. A Bulgarian exchange student, he was awarded the chance to study in the United States based on academic merit. But his ticket was basketball. For a couple of months, it was just as Russinov had hoped. Through a complicated route, the 6-foot-5 forward joined the Santa Barbara High team and had an immediate impact, scoring 20 points a game. Now the opportunity Russinov took advantage of is taking advantage of him.

The "Help Wanted" sign came down long ago at the Santa Barbara High pool. Ever since girls' water polo was sanctioned as a Southern Section sport six years ago, hopeful players have practically stood in line to become a member of the Dons' team. While most schools north of Long Beach consider themselves fortunate to have a collegiate prospect in girls' water polo every few years, Santa Barbara has continually produced blue-chip players and collected championship banners.

Anthony Edwards sits hunched over a newspaper at a window table in an Italian coffee shop in Silver Lake--a lanky, sandy-haired guy with a monkish balding spot and two day's growth of beard. In an open white shirt, black jeans and Timex watch, he looks less like a Hollywood actor on TV's hottest series than, say, an emergency room doctor on his day off. Of course, Edwards is more easily recognized in hospital greens and round glasses as Dr.

Louisville Southern High School of Kentucky survived a late Morningside rally to win the Santa Barbara Girls' Tournament of Champions, 52-50, Thursday night at Santa Barbara High School. Southern had control until the Monarchs, behind the scoring of tournament MVP Lisa Leslie, took the lead, 46-45, with less than 3 minutes left. Southern then made three baskets, including a key 3-pointer by Kim Andres, to clinch the victory. Leslie, a 6-foot 5-inch junior center, scored 23 points.
