Moorpark High School senior Sheena Sidhu knew she had been studying way too much when highlighters began cropping up in her dreams. Sheena, 17, has spent nearly 1,000 hours poring over mounds of study material in preparation for this year's Academic Decathlon, the nation's premier scholastic competition. Her collection of bright-colored pens has kept her organized--and, oftentimes, sane. "If I can't find a highlighter, I start to panic," Sheena said.

Their slogan is simple and catchy, and succinctly expresses their desire to set themselves apart from and outdo Generation X: "We aren't just a bunch of zeros." The future weighs heavily on the Class of 2000 like no class since 1965. That was the year graduating seniors entered an era of civil rights protests and an escalating Vietnam War, and Time Magazine dubbed them "better educated and more seriously motivated than ever before."

COACH OF THE YEAR In the final season of his 26-year coaching career at Channel Islands High, the inimitable Don Cardinal went out with a roar. The Raiders posted a 21-7 record, one of the finest in Cardinal's tenure, and finished 9-5 in the Marmonte League to earn a berth in the Southern Section 5-A Division playoffs. In retirement, Cardinal, 59, a man with an infectious, folksy charm, will remember the innumerable good times, many of which came during his final campaign.

It's awards time for high school basketball players and striding to the front of the line is Ventura High's Ember Brown. Uh, make that limping to the head of the line. Brown, a 5-foot-8 senior forward, can barely hold all the hardware: All-Ventura County by area coaches three times, All-Southern Section Division II since her sophomore season; All-Channel League three years running. She's also the school career scoring leader with 1,420 points and has signed to play at Long Beach State.

El Camino Real gave Dorsey fits before losing, 18-6, then surprised Chaminade, 28-6, last week. Although the Conquistadors lost its top running backs to graduation, the best linemen returned. They may not make headlines, but they make plenty of blocks. "This is the best offensive line we've had in a long time," Coach Rick Hayashida said. "They are all seniors, and they are our most well-conditioned kids." The top three linemen also play defense.
