Re Kenneth Khachigian's March 28 column, "Invoke God? You Haven't Got a Prayer": If the Grant High School team were comprised of Mystic Voodoo devotees who sincerely wished their opponents to join them post-game in ritually sacrificing a chicken and praying to their deity of choice, Khachigian might be less supportive of after-game prayer meetings. The Grant High team, with the coach's blessing, wanted to continue praying immediately after games, on the basketball court, in uniform.

Name: Annette Quintana Company: Western High School, Anaheim Thumbs up: "Because I was an athlete--I played volleyball in college--I thought I'd go into coaching so I could stay in the game. I like the competition involved and teaching the game. I like coaching boys because I like the physical part of their game. I think boys learn the physical aspects of the game a lot quicker, but the girl athletes learn the mental intricacies faster." Thumbs down: "All the paperwork.

I read with great interest "No Grade, No Play" (Pro-Con, March 23). As a former participant in a high school music program, I am disappointed in the attitudes expressed by Santa Monica English teacher Carol Jago [who argued for grade requirements]. It is because of people like her, who view arts and athletics programs as extracurricular rather than cocurricular, that music programs are dwindling, drama programs have no places to perform and student athletes are begging family members for money under the guise of fund-raising.

Kentucky cross-country athlete Codie Thacker was told at a recent meet she had to wear bib number 666. So, she decided not to race. And that gives her something in common with Ronald Reagan (see below). Thacker told local NBC affiliate LEX 18 she had trained for Saturday's race for months.  But she could not bring herself to put on that number. She felt it put her relationship with God at risk . Some background: The number 666 is the biblical mark of the beast.  In the book of Revelation, two beasts arise -- the first a seven-headed beast from the sea. It's this monster whose number must be imprinted on everyone's right hand or forehead.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a measure Monday expanding protections for student athletes who are believed to have sustained a concussion in school sports and activities. Since 2012, public school districts have been required to immediately remove a student athlete from a game or activity if the student may have suffered a concussion or head injury. The student can return to the activity only after being cleared by a licensed health professional. Now, private and charter schools will be subject to the same rules, under the measure, AB 588, by Assemblyman Steve Fox (D-Palmdale)

There is growing discontent in Southern California over the issue of transfers in high school sports, and the debate is about to heat up. During a phone call last week, Marie Ishida, executive director of the California Interscholastic Federation, was asked whether any changes needed to be made to a state rule that makes a student who transfers for athletically motivated reasons ineligible for one year. Ishida said, "It is what it is right now until there's an effort to change it, and so far, there isn't.

The study, published recently in the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine , looked at fractures that occurred among high school athletes at 100 randomly selected high schools around the country from 2005 to 2009.

"There's not a lot of people. " It was one of the few breaks Rohach will get this summer, because high school athletes simply don't have time to stop training. "You wake up in the morning. It's not, 'I'm going to the beach today.' I have football," Rohach said. "It's just a continuous thing.
