They're billed as the San Diego Eagles this weekend for the 28th California Cup, the annual invitational field hockey tournament and festival at Moorpark College. A closer look reveals the squad actually is the U.S. men's national team, including more players from the region than you can shake a curved wooden stick at.

Shawn Hindy stands at the door of the Olympic dream, having earned a place as an alternate on the U.S. field hockey team for the Atlanta Games this summer. He'd like to take the next step, but the only way he can break through to the 16-man squad is if one of the regulars cannot compete, either because of injury or some other circumstance. Hindy knows it's a longshot, but he hasn't given up hope.

Shawn Hindy's goal is to play field hockey again in Australia. Sooner or later. For Hindy, 23, a graduate of Westlake High, the ideal scenario would be as a member of the U.S. Olympic team in the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney. Beyond, the Perth Hockey League beckons. Hindy played one season as a defenseman for the South Perth Wasps and relishes the chance to return. "I played eight months down there and I loved it," Hindy said. "The thing about Perth is, it's a lot like San Diego."

Break up the locals. Were the San Fernando Valley and Ventura regions counted as a state, it would rank 13th in number of athletes participating in the Olympic Sports Festival, which begins in earnest today and runs through Aug. 1. Seven coaches and 78 athletes, including seven former Olympians, represent the Valley area. That's one fewer athlete than Minnesota and five more than Colorado, home of several Olympic sport training centers.

Ventura County is known as fertile ground for a lot of fine things--strawberries, lemons and avocados come to mind--but who would have thought the region would produce so many world-class men's field hockey players? Six of 16 starting team members representing the United States at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta are from the county, and the team captain, Larry Amar, is a Camarillo native. Another four Ventura County players are alternates.

For the U.S. men's field hockey team, Moorpark College is as close to Athens as it is going to get. After failing to qualify for the 2004 Games, the U.S. team got a chance Sunday to experience what Athens could have been like. Taking a break from its pre-Olympic training in Arizona, India's national team traveled to Southern California to play the U.S. in a two-game series Saturday and Sunday. The eight-time Olympic gold medal-winning program defeated the U.S., 7-0, Saturday and 6-0 on Sunday.

Just call Nick Butcher a happy wanderer. At the tender age of 20, the Simi Valley resident has been to five of the world's seven continents, excluding Africa and Antarctica. He has witnessed the pastoral beauty of Great Britain, the monsoon rains and stifling heat of India, and the uninhibited exuberance of Argentina's sports fans. "It's great to meet other people and learn about their cultures," Butcher said. "I'm a very sociable person." Butcher isn't some jet-setting playboy.
