Track: Michael Norman wins 200 at World U20 Championships — Michael Norman barely lost out on a berth for the U.S. Olympic track and field team, but he has become a world champion.

Soccer: Anaheim team wins U14 title at National Premier League finals — Anaheim FC (U14 boys) took home the U.S. Club Soccer's National Premier League championship last weekend in Colorado.

Football: Official practice begins on Monday for Sierra Canyon — Most high school football teams in Southern California don't start official practice unti Aug. 1, but Sierra Canyon is set to begin practice on Monday and put on the pads a couple days later because it has an opening game scheduled for Aug. 19 in Utah.

Warning: Transfers could be hazardous to your high school team's eligibility — Consider this a public service announcement before the new high school sports season begins: Parents, coaches and athletic directors, you need to prevent the embarrassment, ridicule and chaos that happens when an ineligible player is discovered during a season.
