Pat Quinn said Thursday that he was fired last week as the girls' basketball coach at Woodbridge High. In his three seasons at Woodbridge, Quinn's teams had a 68-20 record, 54-7 his first two seasons, and successfully defended the Division II state title in his first season. "Team chemistry is so important to me, and ultimately, that's what they're talking about why they let me go," Quinn said.

Sometimes Woodbridge's Yon Yim just wants to be one of the guys. Take last week for example. Yim was standing next to the ninth green, huddled with teammates at Rancho San Joaquin as the final group finished in Woodbridge's Sea View League golf match against Corona del Mar. As the Warriors tallied their scorecards, a teammate noticed a reporter and told Yim he was waiting to speak to her. "Why does he want to talk to me?" Yim said.

The adage is that teams must be strong up the middle to succeed. Perhaps no team in Orange County covers that stretch of real estate from home plate to the center-field fence better than Woodbridge. The Warriors finished last season ranked third in the county and sixth in the nation by USA Today, and they lost only two players, third baseman Lizzy Lemire, who's at Notre Dame, and first baseman Ashley Boone (Florida).

When Utah State quarterback Matt Sauk played his final high school football game for Woodbridge, there were no major college scholarship offers awaiting him. "I wasn't that big, and my statistics in high school weren't all that great," Sauk said. "I wasn't 6 foot 4 like the scouts are always looking for, and my high school team didn't pass a lot." But Sauk wanted to play somewhere, and decided on Orange Coast College. It worked out well for him. Sauk had two good seasons.

After what her body and tennis game have been through the last few years, it's hard to believe Susanna Lingman is ready to endure any more growing pains. But Lingman, a month shy of turning 14 and already 5 feet 7, said there's room for more growth. "My goal is to be 5-9," she said. "That way, I can be that much better with my overhead and I can cover the net better. I don't want to be as tall as Venus Williams though, 5-9 is perfect."
