In Oregon, the natives welcome stressed-out urbanites seeking solace in the woods with bumper stickers that read: "Have a Nice Visit . . . Then Go Home." A Californian, who's happy to be driving only 40 minutes to work, moves into the rural suburbs of Seattle and he's less popular than investors who want to move the Mariners. Steve Thornton, however, has managed to flee the city and find acceptance, too. Acceptance?

Steve Thornton, Dana Hills High School boys' basketball coach, resigned Tuesday for personal reasons and to pursue other coaching possibilities, he said. "I've been there nine years, I think it's time for a change," Thornton said Tuesday. "There are some other things I want to pursue--hooking on at a junior college or maybe a four-year (college). I have a few irons in the fire." Thornton had a 118-90 record at Dana Hills, and his teams made six Southern Section playoff appearances.

From the start of the volleyball match between Laguna Beach and Capistrano Valley Tuesday in the second round of the Southern Section 4-A playoffs, it was apparent the Artists were in for a fight. It didn't matter that Laguna Beach had home-court advantage and had swept Capistrano Valley earlier in the season. The Cougars wouldn't be denied as they upset Laguna Beach, 15-13, 15-10, 7-15, 15-10, in a two-hour match.

It was easy to overlook Mission Viejo High School point guard Tom Desiano on a basketball court. At 6-feet 1-inch and 155 pounds, he was often dwarfed by taller and bulkier forwards and centers. Scoring is the name of the game and Desiano's average of 11 points per game wasn't overwhelming. He rarely generated headlines in his two seasons as a varsity starter but did establish one fact--he was a winner.

There's little more Bryan McSweeney can do for his school--Dana Hills High. McSweeney, a 6-foot 7-inch senior center, is the Dolphins' best basketball player, averaging 20.4 points and 10.4 rebounds a game. He also is the student body president and has earned a 3.8 grade point average. McSweeney helped the Dolphins win two of three tough South Coast League games last week--games they needed to stay in contention for a Southern Section playoff berth. He did it during finals week.

Despite losing middle blocker Eric Seiffert to an ankle injury early in the championship game of the California Volleyball Tournament of Champions, Capistrano Valley defeated Fresno Bullard, 15-7, Saturday at Cal State Northridge. "That felt good," outside hitter Aaron Garcia said. "It was tough without Seiffert. He's a big part of our offense. But Mike Dalton and Bryan Mayes did a great job. They really pulled it together and we hardly missed a beat."

It came down to a four-point race between Capistrano Valley and Laguna Beach for the top ranking in boys' high school volleyball Tuesday night. And top-ranked Capistrano Valley got there first, but just barely. The Cougars capitalized on two unforced Laguna Beach errors to defeat the third-ranked Artists, 15-9, 15-7, 12-15, 1-15, 15-11, in a nonleague match at Capistrano Valley. Capistrano Valley rallied from an two-point deficit to tie it, 11-11, before Laguna Beach let the match slip away.
