1.) Our Olympians : No one made us prouder this year than the capable athletes, coaches and announcers from Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Irvine who represented Team USA in the 2012 Summer Olympics Games in London. They grew up, trained or live here. Costa Mesa even gave out street signs named after its stars. So instead of just one person at No. 1, we have a whole Irvine and Newport-Mesa team. * Women's beach volleyball Misty May-Treanor (Newport Harbor High) April Ross (Harbor)

June Casagrande Even as the end of her life loomed just around the corner, former Newport Beach Mayor Ruthelyn Plummer kept looking straight ahead, eyeing the future with the anticipation of a young woman with her whole life yet to live. Plummer died Thursday morning from cancer she knew would be fatal. Yet just two weeks before she died, she was having new wallpaper put into her home. She was 79. "She's been such an inspiration to everybody," said Janie Arnold, a longtime friend of Plummer's who stayed close by her side until the end. Plummer had been in hospice care since shortly after she was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer.

PROVO, Utah — While the altitude wreaked havoc on their serving and, to some degree, their hitting, the No. 2-ranked UC Irvine men's volleyball team was thoroughly brought down to earth by a 30-21, 30-22, 30-27 loss to top-ranked BYU Friday night. An overflow crowd of 5,753 at the Smith Fieldhouse witnessed a dominant Mountain Pacific Sports Federation victory for the Cougars (9-0, 5-0 in conference) and a humbling loss for the Anteaters (10-2, 5-2), who committed 20 service errors, hit a season-low .146 as a team, and were bested in the blocking department, 11-5 1/2 . "We haven't played our best volleyball the last couple weeks, but tonight we were just dead terrible," UCI Coach John Speraw said after the Anteaters' second loss in three matches (both sweeps)

IRVINE ? It may have been Matt Webber's birthday on Saturday, but he was the one in a giving mood. The 6-foot-5 junior outside hitter gave the UC Irvine men's volleyball team a match-high 19 kills on his 21st birthday. In the process, he helped the Anteaters rally to defeat Long Beach State, 28-30, 30-21, 34-32, 30-26, in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation match. Webber, UC Irvine's leader in kills with 441, helped the Anteaters (23-2, 16-2 in conference) down the 49ers in four games for the second time this season.

IRVINE -- A portion of the sizable Long Beach State contingent taunted No. 1-ranked UC Irvine with the chant of "Overrated." Overwhelmed might have been a better word to describe the Anteaters (27-4) after they lost, 30-26, 30-20, 30-23 to the 49ers in the semifinals of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's volleyball championship Thursday at the Bren Events Center. The Anteaters now must hope their 21-match winning streak to finish the regular season and their 20-2 regular-season conference mark are enough to get them the lone at-large berth in the four-team NCAA Championships that begin Thursday at Penn State.
