COSTA MESA — Every fall, incoming freshmen must navigate an often uneasy passage from middle school to high school They are dropped into a new environment and have to adjust to new teachers and a new system, all while trying to survive the bottom of the high-school food chain. But Estancia High School has a mentoring program to help make that transition less scary and difficult by having upperclassmen take newcomers under their wing. From before the start of freshman year until sophomore year, each freshman is assigned a junior or senior for guidance through the change.

Richard Dunn The reason tennis is the sport for a lifetime is because, despite ourselves, we can always make the great venture of a comeback, perhaps the prize catch of senior athleticism in today's society. Tennis never goes away for the lifelong afflicted. It is merely courtside while your racket waits endlessly for another set. For at least the third time in his stellar senior career, Newport Beach's Robyn Ray is attempting to walk another path in the comeback trail, this time in the men's 55s. Ray, a back-to-back national champion in the 45s in singles in 1992 and '93, is living proof that real competitive juices never freeze over or trickle away.

Richard Dunn In a crafty promotional skit, billed as "A Tennis Day with Pro Champions," the Newport Beach Tennis Club will host just that Saturday with folks like Brian MacPhie, Scott Davis and Wayne Bryan (the father of Mike and Bob). "It should be fun," said Davis, the former touring pro and now the club's Director of Tennis. "We're giving a little back to the community. (The event) is open to the public, and if somebody comes and they're interested in tennis and they want to become a member, then that's great ... Wayne apparently is pretty good with the microphone, and he's not just Mike and Bob's father, but their coach."
