March 29, 2001

LAGUNA BEACH - Three starters missed practice Tuesday, but the

Corona del Mar High boys volleyball team still swept host Laguna Beach,

15-9, 15-4, 15-0, in a Pacific Coast League opener Wednesday.

CdM's 6-foot-3 senior Brian Gallagher led with 16 kills, three blocks

and five digs. Senior Charlie Alshuler recorded 15 kills, four blocks and

five digs for the Sea Kings (2-2, 1-0 in league), while senior Garrett

Macklin had 12 kills and three blocks.


"We had only eight guys at practice (Tuesday)," CdM Coach Steve Conti

said. "Playing on the road with some injuries that we're dealing ... this

is a good win."

CdM junior John Grod, who tweaked his ankle in Tuesday's practice,

managed to finish with 10 kills and five digs. Senior Pat Flynn turned in

59 assists, three aces and nine digs.

Laguna Beach fell to 2-6 overall, 0-1 in league.
