It happens only in movies, right? Four boys walk toward their school campus, arms raised triumphantly after finishing a heroic journey. Boys and girls eagerly awaiting their arrival at the school gates run screaming to greet the heroes. Parents and teachers watch the spectacle, sighing and rolling their eyes, baffled but impressed by the boys’ ingenuity. What boy hasn’t, at one time or another, fantasized about being cheered by his peers, only to be startled by a displeased teacher standing over him?

Pegasus School students celebrated International Earth Day on Friday with an Entrepreneur World Market, in which students in the third through fifth grades sold products and services to each other to raise money for charity. The Huntington Beach school’s long-running annual market normally benefits just one organization, but this year, the school decided to donate some of the proceeds to Heifer International and some to the American Cancer Society. The latter beneficiary was announced in memory of the school’s founder and principal, Laura Hathaway, who died earlier this month after a long battle with cancer.

Every year about this time, the pitter-patter of cleated feet begins to echo around The Farm Sports Complex in Costa Mesa. This year, that sound is just a little bit louder. Yes, it's time once again for the Daily Pilot Cup, the annual youth soccer tournament that includes every elementary school that serves the Newport-Mesa area. All of them, that is, except Killybrooke and Wilson, which declined to field teams again. Even without those two schools, there are more teams in the field for 2006 ?

Pegasus School founder Laura Hathaway, who 25 years ago turned her vision of a school that challenged even the brightest students into a reality, died at her home Sunday. She was 67. Hathaway also served as the head of the school for its entire tenure up until the time of her death, even as she fought a long battle with cancer. “That school was her entire life pretty much. She was completely dedicated. Every student and parent knew who she was,” said former student Lisa Wiley, who graduated in 1996 and now practices law in Fullerton.

COSTA MESA — Scott Niedermayer was easy to miss Tuesday afternoon at the Costa Mesa Farm Sports Complex. The NHL veteran defenseman is a four-time Stanley Cup winner, two-time Olympic gold medal winner and Anaheim Ducks team captain. He is one of two coaches on the Pegasus School third- and fourth-grade silver division team at the Daily Pilot Cup. On the soccer field with sunglasses on, Niedermayer can be more incognito while he watches his son, Jackson, play on the pitch. "I'm not as famous out here," he said.

COSTA MESA ? Mariners Christian forward Jack McBean didn't have much to say after Saturday's 3-1 Daily Pilot Cup quarterfinal win in the boys' fifth-and sixth-grade Gold Division. "Only on the field, and in class," he quipped. The Dolphins' play on the field said plenty, as they were one step quicker to the ball most of the day against Pegasus School. McBean scored nine minutes into the game, taking a long shot from the left side that hit Pegasus goalie Grant Frazier and bounced in. Frazier played a solid game himself by saving 13 shots ?

COSTA MESA ? Pegasus School was happy to be able to participate in the Daily Pilot Cup. The Huntington Beach school was allowed to enter the tournament, which features schools from the Newport-Mesa area, because the majority of students were from the region. While the girls' third- and fourth-grade Gold team was excited for the opportunity, make no mistake, winning was on its mind. Once Pegasus cracked the Newport Elementary defense, the offense got on a roll and the Thunder won, 5-0, in the second game of pool play Wednesday at the Farm Sports Complex.

COSTA MESA — Guesswork isn’t on the agenda for the Andersen Elementary girls’ third-and fourth-grade Gold Division team. The Dolphins expect to win. They have history on their side, because they represent the closest thing the Daily Pilot Cup has to a dynasty. On Saturday at the Farm Sports Complex, Andersen took a step closer to its seventh straight girls’ 3-4 Gold Division crown. Behind a hat trick from Caroline Bethel, the Dolphins topped Pegasus School in a semifinal, 3-1. Andersen will face Carden Hall in the division’s championship game today at noon at Farm field No. 5. After the semifinal game, the girls didn’t need prodding to say that they want to get that seventh straight title for their school.

COSTA MESA - With nothing but sixth-graders on its roster, The Pegasus School fifth- and sixth-grade boys' gold division team feels that it can make a run at this year's Daily Pilot Cup. The Thunder certainly made a statement on the opening day of the six-day tournament. Eddie Pelc scored late in the second half as Pegasus stunned defending division champion Pomona, 1-0, on Tuesday at Jack Hammett Sports Complex. It was a satisfying victory for Pegasus, which dominated scoring opportunities.

COSTA MESA - Last year, the Kaiser Elementary girls' third- and fourth-grade gold division team won the championship at the Daily Pilot Cup, the school's first title at the annual tournament in nine years. Kaiser would like to again be successful in the division this year, but Coach Jayme Amirie knows other teams in the division don't necessarily feel the same way toward his squad. Nor do they care that this year's Kaiser team has just one returner from last year's title team - Amirie's daughter, Jasmine.

COSTA MESA — Bo St. Geme ran all around the field Wednesday at the Daily Pilot Cup, and Andersen Elementary Coach Jon Johnston didn’t raise an eyebrow. “He can run forever,” Johnston said. “It goes in his family.” On a soccer field, you’re not usually running in a circle like track and field, but St. Geme does boast a pair of decorated track family members in mother Ceci St. Geme and older sister Annie St. Geme, formerly a Corona del Mar High standout and now at Stanford.
