Four years ago, Marv Marinovich was working at his Anaheim athletic training facility when a gangly 12-year-old girl wandered through the door with her father. "She was kind of awkward and untrained, more so than the boys," Marinovich remembered. "I don't like to run down athletes, but she had a bad knee and a sore ankle. Her back was sore, too. Her workload was too much for her." Tara Kroesch's knee and ankle had taken a beating after only two seasons in youth volleyball.

Craig Tefertiller, girls' volleyball coach at El Modena High, used his powers of persuasion when Marni Hichborn and Melizza Benitez tried out for his team three years ago. He convinced Hichborn and her parents that she should continue to play despite struggling with grades during her eighth-grade year. She improved her grades, and started as a freshman on the varsity. And he persuaded his assistant coaches not to cut Benitez, a newcomer to the sport, from the freshman-sophomore team.

Newport Harbor outside hitter Maureen McLaren wasn't perfect Thursday night. But almost perfect was good enough for the Newport Harbor girls' volleyball team, which upset Laguna Beach, the No. 1 ranked team in Orange County. McLaren had 25 kills and only one hitting error to lead the Sailors to an 11-15, 15-10, 15-10, 15-6, victory at Newport Harbor High School.
