The Palisades High School boys' volleyball team failed to defend its City 4-A championship Friday night, losing to top-seeded L.A. University, 17-15, 15-10, 7-15, 3-15, 15-8, in front of 350 at Cal State Northridge. Palisades rallied behind the play of Colin Wellman, a 6-foot-3 junior middle-blocker, and John Lee, a senior outside hitter who finished with 18 kills and 10 blocks. University, however, regained its composure and won the match by taking control of the fifth, and deciding, game.

This year's City Section volleyball championships have a decidedly local flavor. Call it Valleyball. The two matches will be played tonight at Cal State Northridge, and each will feature an area team. Van Nuys will take on Marshall at 5:30 p.m. in the 3-A Division championship, and Granada Hills will play University in the 4-A final at 8. Granada Hills (15-1) has made it a habit of beating traditional coastal powers, taking out Venice and defending champion Palisades in its last two matches.

Be careful what you wish for, Andy Witt. After Stanford beat Ball State in a semifinal of the NCAA volleyball championships Thursday, Witt was asked if he had a preference of who won the other semifinal. "One of the reasons I came to Stanford was to beat UCLA in the finals of the NCAA championship game," Witt said. He is halfway to his wish. The toughest part will be playing UCLA tonight for the championship at Ohio State's St. John Arena.

Tony Ciarelli did not set out to be the king of aces. Too one-dimensional. USC's 6-foot-6 senior outside hitter spent most of his life honing a number of volleyball skills: serves, an array of powerful spikes and well-placed shots, intimidating blocks and efficient passes. Yet when Ciarelli is behind the service line for the top-ranked Trojans, the anticipation from teammates and fans is palpable. So is the dread on opponents' faces. Midway through the first set of USC's Mountain Pacific Sports Federation quarterfinal victory over Cal State Northridge, for instance, Ciarelli boomed a salvo of four consecutive serves.

With Pepperdine's Paul Carroll on a scoring blitz near the end of the third game, Penn State's Matt Anderson and his teammates decided enough was enough. The Nittany Lions blocked Carroll's next two kill attempts and, with that game saved and the momentum regained, Penn State went on to beat Pepperdine and win the NCAA Division I men's volleyball championship Saturday.

Jonathan Winder heard the pop as soon as he hit the floor. His first thought: a torn anterior cruciate ligament -- season over. That was December. Today, fully recovered from a cracked tibia that kept him out only five weeks, Winder will lead Pepperdine into a national semifinal match against Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne in college volleyball's Final Four at Columbus, Ohio. "I wasn't sure I was going to play again this season, let alone play in the Final Four," Winder said.

When you're UCLA, armed with 18 NCAA men's volleyball championships and working on a sixth in eight years, reaching the national semifinals for the umpteenth time doesn't raise any eyebrows. The Bruins expect to win national championships. Always have, always will. "We always have a lot of confidence going into the final four," senior hitter Adam Naeve said. Even in an up-and-down year, UCLA is again in contention as it meets Ohio State today at 5 p.m.

Win or else. That's the state of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's volleyball tournament, where upsets Thursday at UC Irvine set the stage for a winner-take-all conference final. The winner goes to the NCAA Division I Final Four played at Penn State, the loser probably goes home, with the lone at-large playoff berth probably going to a semifinal loser. Conference champion UC Irvine, ranked No.
