And this restaurant owned by Simon Sadoun is just that, featuring a larger-than-average eat-in bar, dozens of high-definition televisions and a few video games.

A powerful hitter, several of Hill's spikes have sent opposing defenders tumbling to the floor. SIDELINES -- Hill improved her all-around game, particularly her defense, and for the first time in her career was allowed to remain on the court when the rotation took her to the back row. A leader on and off the court, she served as the team's captain and excelled in the classroom, where her grade point average is nearly as flawless as her swing.

Spending the first seven years of his life in his homeland of Colombia, Atholton High School senior Johnathan Beltran had plenty of influences to help with his soccer education. There were the times when he would tag along with his older cousin, hoping to get an opportunity to play with the bigger kids. When the chances came, he quickly learned how important it was to get rid of the ball or else get run over. At his home in the capital city of Bogota, four television stations regularly showed soccer - three in Spanish, another in English - and a night rarely went by when a game from some part of the world was not on in the family living room.
