Cammy Ciarelli must have felt right at home shuffling through the hot, sticky sand Friday when she began the defense of her title at the Miller Lite Open beach volleyball tournament. Her husband, Rocky, is in his usual place, sitting in his wife's chair inside the players' box watching her every move and giving her encouragement. Her 4-year-old son, Tony, is just beyond the fence that encircles the court and most of his time is spent kicking sand into the gentle breeze.

The Brazilian pair of Jose Loiola and Emanuel Rego teamed to win Sunday's $50,000 Assn. of Volleyball Professionals Open at Seal Beach, but the buzz afterward revolved around the play of David Swatik.

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.

Sinjin Smith and Randy Stoklos, the top-seeded team, cleared a big hurdle Saturday at the Seal Beach Open volleyball tournament--even though it was just the preliminary round.

Good news for Raider fans. Saturday's exhibition game against the Washington Redskins at the Coliseum will be televised live at 1 p.m. by Channel 9, then repeated by Prime Ticket and Channel 9 on Sunday. Because NFL blackout policies are not in effect for exhibitions, it's up to the teams whether to show a game live. Al Davis wanted to televise the game live, so all he had to do was get permission from Redskin owner Jack Kent Cooke. Too bad it's not that simple during the regular season.
