Jenny Evans has had all kinds of brushes with greatness while playing volleyball. Take her high school career at Newport Harbor High in Newport Beach. The Sailors were 59-6 in her three seasons on the Newport Harbor varsity but never won a state championship. The success, and frustration, have continued at UCLA. The Bruins were a combined 64-4 the last two seasons and went into the NCAA semifinals ranked No. 1 both times, and lost.

Who wants to speak next? Charlie Brande, coach of the girls' volleyball team at Corona del Mar High School in Newport Beach and the Orange County Volleyball Club, is the topic, and everyone has an opinion on him, right? Some descriptions that have been applied to him: A winner. Overbearing. Enthusiastic. Too enthusiastic. One of the best coaches in developing talent. One of the worst coaches to play for. A coach who leads through respect. A coach who leads through fear.

The U.S. Olympic Festival this week at Oklahoma City will provide different opportunities for the 75 or so Orange County athletes who will participate. For athletes such as 1988 Olympic shotputters Jim Doehring and Bonnie Dasse and Peter Campbell, a two-time Olympic water polo player, the Olympic Festival represents a chance to get together with friends--and rivals--while competing largely free of high stakes and pressure.
