Staci Venski is one of the top junior volleyball players in the country and attends Calabasas High, but you won't see her name in box scores or tales of her 30-kill matches chronicled in the newspaper. Venski, a member of the 12-member U.S. Youth National team, is taking a year off from high school volleyball after transferring from Mojave High two weeks before the school year.

USC unveiled its 2002 NCAA women's volleyball championship banner Wednesday night at Lyon Center. The Trojans' display against Pepperdine, a top-10 caliber team, showed they might have to make room for another. A 30-26, 30-18, 30-19 victory over the Waves left this possibility: USC might be better than its 31-1 national championship team of a year ago. The top-ranked Trojans, already 6-0, are deeper and more versatile than ever.

Silver medals. Second-place ribbons. Runner-up plaques. Santa Ana Mater Dei has plenty of them. Too many, in fact. Mater Dei has finished second in four top-notch tournaments the last three seasons and was runner-up in the last two Southern Section Division I-A girls' volleyball championships. Here's a first, however: The streak of seconds finally ended at the Las Vegas Durango tournament. Mater Dei defeated Clovis Buchanan, 15-11, to win the 16-team tournament on Saturday.

Keao Burdine had 30 kills and 30 digs to lead the USC women's volleyball team to a 33-35, 30-27, 30-21, 34-36, 15-12 victory over top-seeded Nebraska in an NCAA tournament quarterfinal match at Louisville, Ky. USC (23-5), the defending champion, advanced to next week's national semifinals at Long Beach Arena. UCLA (21-11) had a chance to join USC in the semifinals, but the Bruins saw their season end after Washington rallied for a 27-30, 30-19, 30-28, 24-30, 15-9 victory at Seattle.

Relations between the Angels and the city of Anaheim deteriorated further during a meeting Friday, when club President Dennis Kuhl refused the city's demand to say once and for all whether the team would change its name to the Los Angeles Angels. Although the meeting was designed to ease tensions between the two sides, a plan to issue a joint statement collapsed.

Staci Venski and Aaron Peirsol are world-class athletes who have identical reasons for making distinctly different decisions about high school sports. Venski, a member of the United States junior national volleyball team, fears burnout and, therefore, has chosen not to play for Calabasas High. Conversely, Peirsol, a silver medalist in swimming at the 2000 Olympics, combats burnout by adding Newport Harbor High swim competitions to his already busy schedule.
