Athletes of the Week : Dan Styles : Laguna Beach, Jr. : Volleyball / Outside hitter

March 29, 1994

Styles, who has the highest amateur beach volleyball rating, is honing his indoor game, and Laguna Beach Coach Michael Soylular says he is one of the best swing hitters around. Last week, Styles made believers out of Laguna Hills, Trabuco Hills and Dana Hills. Friday night against Dana Hills, then the top-ranked team in the county, Styles had 21 kills in a four-game victory. He had 14 kills in a three-game sweep of Trabuco Hills and a sweep of Laguna Hills. The Artists (5-0), who were ranked third in the county last week, are now No. 2.
