With less than a lap to go in the boys' 1,600-meter seeded event at the Orange County Championships, Spencer Keith tripped while in fifth place, losing nine spots. The senior bounced back later, though. Keith went on to win the 3,200, recording a personal-best time of 9 minutes, 16.75 seconds at the meet at Mission Viejo High on Saturday. "He finished very strong after the spill," CdM Coach Bill Sumner said of Keith, who took 14th in the 1,600 in 4:24.54, which is also a personal record.

She goes by "Bean," a funny nickname for the tall and slender Smith, who stands 5-foot-10. When she was a baby Smith's parents, Todd and Sherry, called her "Sabrina Bo-Bina," which was soon shortened to "Bean. " Then, in first grade, there was another Sabrina in her class at Harbor View Elementary. The teacher asked if either of the girls had a nickname.

Re: "Don't sue; make cheating episode a life lesson", (April 20): Writer Ray Kennedy wisely says the Corona del Mar High School students need to take responsibility for their actions, learn from their mistakes and become better people. My thought was to give those caught cheating an "F" for the class, and then they can take the class over and obtain an honest grade. That would be a more appropriate outcome, without all the drama, negotiated agreements, transfers and lawsuits.

But "The Ojai" is varied enough that both had their time to shine. And it was no accident that Paul and April Di Giulio wore UCLA clothing as they watched their sons play, while younger brother Perry, 8, donned a UCLA cap. Austin moved into the semifinals of the Ojai boys' 14s tournament Friday afternoon after outlasting William Grant of Santa Barbara, 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, at The Thacher School.
