1997 BOYS' VOLLEYBALL / PREVIEW | SIX TEAMS TO WATCH

Newport Harbor

March 13, 1997

Coach: Dan Glenn (11th year).

1996: 9-7, 7-3 in Sea View League; Tied for second place in league with Corona del Mar then lost to Laguna Beach in the first round of the Division I tournament.

Key returners: Scott Archbold, 6-2, outside hitter, Jr.; Matt Jameson, 6-0, outside hitter, So.; Dana Mesenbrink, 6-2, opposite, Sr.; Travis Nelson, 6-2, setter, Jr.

Key newcomers: Scott Dore, 6-2, outside hitter, Jr.; Adam Hearlson, 6-6, middle blocker, So.; Alan Limon, 6-2, outside hitter, So.; Rick Robinson, 6-3, middle blocker, Jr.; John Stout, 6-2, opposite, Jr.; Ty Tramblie, 5-7, setter, So.; Zachary Wells, 6-1, outside hitter, So.

Outlook: The Sailors' losses from last season are enormous--league co-most valuable player Wes Badorek (6-6) in the middle as well as first-team all-league opposite Cameron Black (6-1) and second-team all-league outside hitter Matt Caldwell (6-2). Nelson, one of the best setters in the county, is the only returning starter. He will count on a group of youngsters who led the Newport Harbor junior varsity team to the league title last season.
