The Cal State Fullerton softball team is headed for its first NCAA Super Regional and a best-of-three matchup against No. 4-ranked Arizona beginning this afternoon in Tucson, a seminal moment for Ashley Van Boxmeer and her teammates.

Putting together a winning team is always easier on paper. Ask Long Beach Ice Dog Coach John Van Boxmeer, who in less than a year turned one of the International Hockey League's worst teams into one of its best. With the support of first-year owner Barry Kemp, Van Boxmeer's task was to make the Ice Dogs contenders for the Turner Cup; last season Long Beach was one of only three teams not to make the IHL playoffs.

John Van Boxmeer, coach of the Los Angeles Ice Dogs minor league hockey team, is well acquainted with former King coach Barry Melrose. They both coached in the American Hockey League, Van Boxmeer at Rochester, N.Y., and Melrose at Glens Falls, N.Y. So Van Boxmeer kept an eye on the Kings' scores when Melrose went to the NHL. Van Boxmeer was especially intrigued when Melrose led the Kings to the Stanley Cup finals in 1993 and credited positive-thinking guru Anthony Robbins for his success.

They met 25 years ago, probably in the corners or along the boards of a junior hockey rink in Canada. Anointed for stardom when the Montreal Canadiens made them top-20 draft picks, Larry Robinson and John Van Boxmeer were a couple of tall, hulking kids whose hockey future seemed limitless. They played together in the minor leagues and were paired occasionally in the NHL. But after a little more than three seasons as teammates, their paths separated.
