Troy High School's principal and about a dozen star students missed out on celebrating the school's latest award Monday, but with good reason: They were still out of town after nailing another prestigious national award over the weekend. The school was among five in Orange County to receive a Blue Ribbon award Monday from the U.S. Department of Education. It added that accolade to a weekend victory in the National Science Olympiad, Troy's second in a row.

Investigators took a 17-year-old student into custody and are looking for seven other youths believed to be involved in the incident, Fullerton Police Sgt. Glenn Deveney said. All except one are juniors and seniors at Troy, he said.

As a boy readied to drop an aerodynamic device containing a raw egg from the second-floor balcony, children down below egged him on. The kids on the ground counted down from 10. Then they laughed at the sound of "plaf"--the egg cracking on the target. The purpose of the experiment was to keep the egg intact, but "plaf" reverberated throughout Friday morning as the kids dropped their creations from the Business Administration and Economics building at Cal State University Northridge.
