There's nothing better...We're going..This is start of the next season and we're going far." The Non'nans (6-3 overall, 5-1 in league) have won four straight, leaving them undefeat- ed on their home turf. The last time the Nor- roans went unbeaten at home was some 20 years ago, when current Assistant Coach Don- aid Paysinger played for the men in orange in black. Kogan carded the ball 26 times for 209 yards and led the way with three touchdowns, extending his season total to 1,259 yards with 10 touchdowns. Wallace completed 9 of 16 passes for 113 yards with one touchdown to his favorite receiver, Hakim, on the Normans' first drive, only 52 seconds into the game. Hakim ended the day with four receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown, bringing his season total to 11. Ironically, Haldm was not a starter in the ornal Norman offense; he replaced Marc Schwartz who broke his arm early on. "The line was blocking great. We lost Andy (Kiine) our starting tackle, and Davis (Kim) our starting fullback. It didn't matter," said Kogan.

I was in a zone. It was easy." Sophomore Miguet Marco, who will be a big factor for the Normans next year, scored once, rushing for 46 yards on three carries. Replacing Kim was sophomore Kyle Dun- can. Gerald LeJean stepped in for Kang, and senior Aron Wellman made his kicking debut, replacing the injured Flynn Turner. Fans wit- nessed the return of senior receiver Larry Vavra, who sat out the first eight games of the season with a bothered ankle. The Norman defense, led by junior Jeremy Jones and senior Kline, has improved consis- tenth/each week, according to Coach Carter Paysinger. In the beginning of the season, the defensive backs and secondaries were strug- gling as they gave up nearly 100 points in the first two games. However, they have stepped up their game significantly and are a big part of the Norman unit, Paysinger said. Culver City, the No. 2 ranked team in Divi- sion 7, toppled Campion Centennial 27-12 last week. Quarterback David Williams was 6 for 16 on the day for 114 yards with 2 touch- downs. The Normans defeated Centennial three weeks prior 40-20. A final note: Wallace, who was awarded with a black helmet two weeks ago, was hon- ored as the 1994 Homecoming King at the annual dance following the big game. Now, he must juggle two headpieces. The only ques- tion; which suits him better -- the black helmet or the gold crown? Zack Friedman is sports editor for the Bev- erly Hills High School newspaper, Highlights. Not ready to hang up her sweats Bq Jane Fried Former Beverly High gymnast Lesley Goldberg now runs one of city's hottest exercise studios. t has been 11 years since her days as a gymnast at Beverly Hills High School, but Lesley Gotdberg still hasn't given up her sweats. Goldberg, who went on to compete on the UCLA gymnastic team following her graduation from Beverly High in 1983, now runs a local, pri- vate exercise studio, a busi- ness she began in a basement studio five years ago on a part- time basis. For the last 18 months, g's At Your Side studio has been located in the Bever- ly Hills Industrial Area building which once housed The Mapte Center, the city's community counseling center. Workouts are by appoint- merit, with usually no more than three exercisers sharing an array of equipment at one time. The client base is made up largely of local residents and business people, and has been increasing steadily due to word of mouth advertising, she said, "Giving up the competition was the hardest part," "Gold- berg said of the transition from performer to coach. "1 went from being on stage to trying to build a life for myself." After graduation from UCLA, Goldberg started out as a coach at the Santa Monica Gymnastics Center. At Your Side began as a part-time, in-home training servte. Goldberg then moved into a tiny space in the basement of a dental building at 416 N. Bedlord. She stayed there more than three years, gradually built up a fallowing and then moved to space in the red bdck bulking in the city's industrial zone. The daughter # Unda and Ira Goldberg, the 1983 Beverly High graduate fell in love with working out began at the Beverly Hills YMCA where she was part of the Eagles gymnastic team. When the Y subsequently folded its gym program, she traveled to and from the Santa Monica Gymnastics Center.
