If Laguna Beach setter Shauna Shapiro has her way, she'll be playing volleyball next season at Stanford, California or Duke. But she would settle for just taking classes at one of the academic powers. "Academics are the priority," Shapiro said. "I like volleyball because of the competitiveness, and it has helped me develop as a person. "But I also know I'm a 5-foot-7 setter, and I'm not going to be an Olympian down the road."

Laguna Beach's volleyball players got a little too cocky after the first game. They started celebrating a little early in the fourth game. But the unseeded Artists still had too much talent and balance to lose, rolling to a 15-7, 11-15, 15-8, 15-10 victory over second-seeded Mater Dei in the Southern Section 5-A quarterfinals Tuesday night at Laguna Beach. Rachel Wacholder had 25 kills and Tori Scott added 18 as the Artists (20-2) advanced to Thursday's semifinals against Capistrano Valley.

School: La Habra High Sport: Volleyball Position: Outside hitter Class: Senior Because La Habra lost to graduation three 6-foot players from the team that won its second consecutive Southern Section and state championships, some believed the Highlanders would slip a bit this season. So far that hasn't happened. La Habra won another section Division 3-A title and Kristich, 6 feet 5, deserves much of the credit.

Most volleyball coaches figured the Laguna Beach High School girls' team would slip a notch after outside hitter Ashley Wacholder and setter Kealy Clarke graduated last spring. But the coaches made one major error. They overlooked the fact that Rachel Wacholder, Ashley's sister, was returning for her junior season. Overlooking Wacholder, after all, was easy to do. She stands only 5 feet 8. Her voice is soft and she appears to be about as ferocious as a puppy.
