Barry Faulkner If there was a collective statement made by the participants in the Dave Mohs Memorial Orange County All-Star boys volleyball match Friday at Edison High, it was that better things are ahead. It would be difficult to project much worse from the more than two dozen standouts, about half of whom are bound for Division I college programs. A whopping 24 combined service errors, numerous hitting errors, as well as other sundry violations, accounted for most of the points in the rally scoring format, eventually won by the North, 25-18, 23-25, 16-14.

Barry Faulkner It has been more than six months since Kristin McClune led the Newport Harbor High girls volleyball team to the CIF Southern Section Division II-AA championship last fall. But not long enough that Sailors Coach Dan Glenn has forgotten what the 6-foot-3 Pepperdine-bound middle blocker meant to his program. While watching McClune on her way to posting a match-high 11 kills and adding four blocks to help the South defeat the North in the girls half of the Dave Mohs Memorial Orange County All-Star matches Friday at Edison High, Glenn let slip what has been on his mind ever since McClune's prep eligibility expired.

The family wanted to be closer to the headquarters of PIMCO, the Newport Beach-based investment management firm for which Miranda's mother, Christina, works. The commute for Christina was indeed severely reduced. Miranda did not have so much trouble fitting in at CdM in the classroom, but on the soccer field she had doubts.

The 19th annual Gentlemen's Smoker and Lobster Clambake welcomed 150 handsome men in blue blazers and khaki trousers for a summer beach event beyond compare.

The 1221 fund, established some 15 years ago, grants annual scholarships exceeding $100,000 to help high-performing local students meet their college financial needs. The Smoker, considered one of the last bastions of the male-dominated social gatherings, was originally the brainchild of hotelier Henry Schielein , now in retirement after serving the Balboa Bay Club for nearly two decades.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY - Joseph Di Giulio has plenty of good memories on the tennis courts at Los Caballeros Racquet & Sports Club. The Newport Beach resident won singles titles at the Southern California Junior Sectionals in the boys' 10s, 12s and 14s age divisions. He was top-ranked in the nation for a time in the latter two divisions. Now, Di Giulio is not a young kid, but instead a young man. He stood on the Los Cab courts Saturday in a blue UCLA T-shirt, which makes sense because he'll be playing for the Bruins next year.
