Can anyone stop the streaking? With several football leagues beginning play on Friday, two notable winning streaks stand out: Sylmar High has won 67 consecutive league games and Hart has won 38. Sylmar (3-2), which terrorized the Valley Pac-8 Conference throughout the 1990s, plays Monroe on Friday in a Valley Mission League opener, one of three newly aligned leagues in the City Section that consist almost entirely of teams from the region.

On a hot August afternoon, Brian "Biff" McGahan jumped into his backyard pool to help his screaming 11-year-old niece, who had been shocked by a faulty underwater light fixture. His niece, Dena, got out of the water safely, but McGahan, 31, sank to the bottom of the pool and was electrocuted. Four people, including his wife, managed to pull him out of the water, but he died on the way to the hospital.

George Wrighster, one of Sylmar High's best athletes, seems to have all but disappeared from the Spartans' football offense. The heavily recruited tight end got off to a fast start, catching 13 of Sylmar's 22 completions in the first three games, but he had only eight receptions in seven Valley Pac-8 Conference games. A closer look reveals two good reasons Wrighster, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound senior, has been idling.

Please! It's hard enough when our city's elected officials attack Los Angeles public schools, but now a young writer who didn't even graduate from L.A. Unified is criticizing the district for its handling of repair funds ("School Repairs Are Too Little, Too Late," Sept. 13). Hasn't anyone stopped to ask what the impact of all these negative articles is on the students? . . . My classmates at Sylmar High School now have air-conditioning and a new gym floor, thanks to Proposition BB. At our school, no repair is too little or too late.

The road to the City Section 4-A Division title doesn't always lead through the South Bay, but that doesn't mean teams from the San Fernando Valley have had any more success in becoming champion. The field of contenders has slowly expanded since Carson High or Banning won 11 consecutive titles from 1976-86. But only two Valley teams--Sylmar and Granada Hills--have been able to wrest the title from the Southern Pacific Conference. Nobody knows this better than Taft Coach Troy Starr.
