Once again, Linda Chisholm found herself in a race against time. This didn't involve fighting anxiety because she'll turn 40 this year. And it was even more urgent than getting to her Van Nuys home to feed her four German shepherds and two terriers after a long day at the beach. Those races she wins. Chisholm, the first star in the 11-year-old Women's Professional Volleyball Assn.

At 6 feet, 2 inches, Linda Chisholm is the tallest player on the Women's Professional Volleyball Assn. beach tour. Being that tall has its shortcomings. For instance, it can be a little tough to find a pair of pumps that fit, and other such stylish accessories are even more difficult to come by. As far as her game is concerned, though, Chisholm has found the 2-year-old tour to be a perfect fit. Finding a purse that's the right size is getting easier, too.

At an age when many other professional athletes are thinking about life after sports, Linda Chisholm, the 36-year-old pro beach volleyball player from Van Nuys, does not think beyond her next match. Her focus dims when she talks about life after volleyball--it seems like a lifetime away. But it sharpens again when the conversation turns to her next opponent, whomever that may be. Chisholm's concentration is undeniably present, and so is her success.

Linda Chisholm of Van Nuys has the dubious distinction of being the only member of the team beach volleyball circuit who lives in the Valley area. "When I go back to the Valley it's like I'm going to some bad, troubled area. For them, the beach is the greatest," she said, referring to her teammates and league counterparts. Living in the Valley has not hurt Chisholm's success in volleyball. Before turning professional, she played for the U.S.

Twenty-five years ago, Nina Matthies wandered onto a beach volleyball court near her home in Manhattan Beach. She didn't realize it at the time, but that day at the beach would leave a lasting impression on her. A long-lasting impressing. A quarter of a century later Matthies still goes to the beach to play volleyball on weekends. She's no longer a gangly 11-year-old batting a ball over a dipping net with her mother and father, though. She's now a mother, wife and coach of one of the nation's top collegiate volleyball teams.

Angela Rock and Karolyn Kirby were such a dominating team on the Women's Professional Volleyball Assn. tour in 1991 that opposing teams were often left battling for second place. Rock and Kirby combined for a WPVA team-record 12 victories and placed in the top four in the five other tour events. Rock, voted the tour's best spiker, and Kirby, the most valuable player and best setter, seemed like an unstoppable team. Until early July.

The Beach Boys did it with their music, Corky Carroll did it with his surfboard and Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello did it with their movies. They set trends that influenced the way people played on the beaches of Southern California. Linda Chisholm of Van Nuys doesn't sing, surf or play beach-blanket bingo, but she, too, is revolutionizing the way people play on the beach.
