Saugus High football Coach Jack Bowman won't soon be forgotten by the Santa Clarita chapter of the Red Cross. As soon as he decided the damage to his house from the Jan. 17 earthquake was minimal, he called to check on each of his players. Those who assured Bowman that all was OK instantly were called to duty. Bowman and 46 of his varsity players sprang into action as Red Cross volunteers.

Saugus High began its girls' basketball program in 1977, but the Centurions only recently got good at it. Before last season, they had never won a playoff game or a league championship. A 61-38 rout of visiting Lancaster Antelope Valley on Saturday night in a Southern Section Division II-AA second-round game sent the two-time defending Foothill League champions to the quarterfinals for the second consecutive season.

Saugus High boys' basketball assistant coach Eric Olsson has been promoted to head coach, replacing John Clark, who resigned after last season. Olsson, 32, has been a Saugus basketball coach for seven years and Clark's top assistant for the past two. Olsson, a science teacher at Saugus since 1985, coached the school's freshman team for three years and the junior varsity for two before joining the varsity. "It's been kind of a dream of mine. This is a job I've always wanted," Olsson said.

At a memorial service Wednesday at Saugus High School, friends of two student athletes killed in a car accident this week honored their memories and sounded a warning to their classmates about reckless driving. An hour after taking their semester final exams, more than 1,000 students gathered in the gym, many wearing Mardi Gras beads like the ones Sheldon Bell and Robert Smith favored, others in bright red T-shirts that Robert liked.

Heather Scobie and Shauna Bird used to run to win. Now they run for something more important. When the two Saugus High School seniors compete in cross-country races, they say, they are running for their lives. Both girls were critically injured in a car accident on Halloween last year just as a crucial cross-country event was approaching the following week. Both suffered internal injuries and broken backs that left them bedridden, facing months of rehabilitation.

The night could hardly have gotten worse for the Saugus High football team. One minute, Burroughs was running and passing wild, apparently scoring at will. The next, senior Saugus guard Barry Crom was having his helmet, with head inside, taped to an emergency back board. Teammate Roy Houlette did not know that Crom would be treated and later released last Friday night.

"What is a demanding pleasure? A pleasure that demands the use of one's mind . . . .Any knowledge man acquires is acquired by man's own will and effort, and that is man's distinction in the universe, that is man's nature, man's morality, man's glory." --Ayn Rand. It turned out that Brad Bjelke gained more attention than he ever would have for earning a 4.44 grade average at Santa Clarita's Saugus High School this past year.

Roger Salkeld of Saugus High, a 6-foot-5 senior right-hander, became the highest Southern California player selected in baseball's amateur draft since 1983 when the Seattle Mariners made him the No. 3 pick in the nation Monday. Salkeld, 18, the second high school player selected and first high school pitcher, was notified by telephone at 10:30 a.m. at his parents' home in Saugus. "I don't know if this is the happiest day of my life but it's a good one," Salkeld said. "Before the year started, I didn't think I had a shot at the draft.

Mike von Buelow remembers slaving for good grades in high school and being annoyed that there was little recognition for academic excellence. "You put so much time and effort and you set your priorities for academics and you work and work and nobody notices," said von Buelow, now principal of Saugus High School. So starting this spring, his remedy is to reward Saugus High students with varsity letters, not for whacking balls out of the park or slam-dunking basketballs but for winning top grades.

Someone could have predicted this. Perhaps the grade school principal in Chicago who routinely hauled her into his office for fighting. Or perhaps the boys who were her victims in those schoolyard tussles. Someone, certainly, could have foreseen that one day little Kimberly Templeman would become strong Kimberly Templeman, a young woman with a hard and chiseled body, a teen-ager who now uses her unusual strength not to pummel boys but instead to pump iron.

Coach Cathy Giordano of Hart High knew what she was doing when she scheduled the Foothill tournament just three days before resuming Foothill League softball play. The Indians rose to the level of their competition Saturday against Foothill, the No. 1 team in the nation, and their concentration carried over into a Tuesday game against Saugus. Megan Ivey (5-4) of Saugus pitched well enough to beat many opponents, but Hart teed off on her fastballs en route to a 6-0 victory at Saugus High.

One possession was all Coach Eric Olsson of Saugus High needed to see to know his team was in for a long night. Two missed layups, two five-foot jumpers off the front of the rim and an air ball on a hook shot in the lane were examples of the missed opportunities that would plague the Centurions. Hart posted a 50-39 girls' basketball victory Tuesday night and continued a pattern that has become familiar in the Foothill League the last two seasons.

There are 18 white banners hanging at one end of the gymnasium at Saugus High, representing each varsity sport and listing their league championships. The girls' basketball banner is blank. The Centurions are 0 for 23 seasons. That could change this season. Saugus beat Valencia, 44-39, on Friday night in a Foothill League game to take a one-game lead over the Vikings (16-4, 3-1 in league play) and Hart (14-4, 3-1), which Saugus (17-2, 4-0) plays Tuesday.

After spending most of the second half in foul trouble, guard Chad Krogh of Saugus High was hoping to redeem himself. When he finally got an opportunity, he responded by making a three-point basket with 1:11 remaining to give the Centurions a six-point lead. That made all the difference for host Saugus, which held on for a 58-52 victory over Valencia on Friday night in a battle for first place in the Foothill League. Krogh said he didn't think twice about taking the shot.

Maybe it was the chants the Saugus High boys' basketball team heard from the Canyon stands early in the game. Whatever the reason, the Centurions became inspired en route to an 85-42 victory in a Foothill League opener Friday night at Saugus. After falling behind, 9-4, midway through the first quarter, Saugus went on a 16-2 run and Canyon was never heard from again. Consequently, the Centurions (10-6) served notice to the rest of the league.

With the end of summer comes the familiar ritual of training camp for Saugus High School senior Robert Chesebrough. There's all the sweat that comes from hustling through new patterns and running back to his starting position, only to repeat the same patterns. And if you screw up, Robert said, chances are you'll have to run a lap around the football field. Robert isn't practicing for the school's football team. The 17-year-old plays trumpet for the school's marching band.

On Sept. 10, 1992, Ed Guimaraes returned to the zoo. He strolled through the doors of Saugus High, his first steps in a public school in four years. "I think Ed thought school was a zoo the first day," his mother, Ellie, said. Since 1988, Guimaraes, 16, had told friends and acquaintances he went to "private school." True. Guimaraes (pronounced Gee-MEHR-ez) attended a private school so exclusive, his sister Eloise, 15, was the only other student. They studied at home.

It's a safe bet that Saugus High will post its first winning season in girls' basketball since 1979. The Centurions, ranked No. 5 in the region, are 13-2 and on pace to break the school record of 17 victories. Saugus figures to battle for the championship of the Foothill League, arguably the region's most competitive league. "We've gotten so much better," second-year Coach Eric Olsson said. "But so has Hart, Canyon, Valencia, almost everybody in our league. Every game is going to be huge."

He's been bruised, cut and beat up, but Jared DePaiva of Saugus High keeps coming at you over and over. The linebacker's hard-hitting style has earned admirers. "There's so much intensity in this kid," Saugus Coach Ron Hilton said. "He's a throwback. He belongs in the '50s. Put a leather helmet on him and he'd be playing in his element." On Friday night, DePaiva will be playing in the Southern Section playoffs, leading the Centurions (5-5) against St.
