Mike Longacre, Head Coach ... Loyola Marymount ... SCVC 2nd year

Coaching Experience: 7 years Mira Costa High School Varsity Coach

2017 marks Coach Longacre’s seventh season as a varsity coach at MCHS.  The first two seasons were marked by a CIF Southern Section and CIF Southern California Regional championship in 2012 and a CIF Southern Section Semifinal finish in 2013. Mike played four seasons for the Mustangs from 1984 – 1987, the final two on varsity. He was a setter on the CIF runner-up 1987 team that featured three future Olympians (Eric Fonoimoana - Gold Medal-Beach Volleyball, 2000 Sydney Olympics; Bryan Ivie - Bronze Medal-Indoor Volleyball, 1992 Barcelona Olympics; Cark Henkel - 5th Place-Beach Volleyball, 1996 Atlanta Olympics).

He then was a four year starter as a setter and outside hitter at Loyola Marymount University and later earned a bronze medal as part of the North team in the 1991 Olympic Festival.

He stayed on as an assistant coach at LMU from 1991 – 1993 first under head coach Mike Normand and then Rick McLaughlin.

He was also active in coaching local club volleyball teams from the late 80’s through the mid-late 90’s and coached several MCHS alums during that time. Mike has worked in various areas of the commercial finance industry for the last twenty years but has never been far from Mira Costa volleyball. Mike lives in the South Bay with his wife, Lynda, and their two children.

USC Rallies to Beat UC Santa Barbara in Final

May 08, 1988 | JERRY CROWE | Times Staff Writer

FORT WAYNE, Ind. 

Bob Yoder joked this week that, should USC lose again this season in the final match of the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. volleyball tournament, he had a noose ready in his hotel room. The Trojan coach had no reason to hang himself, though, after USC rallied to beat UC Santa Barbara, 15-17, 14-16, 15-10, 15-11, 15-9, before a crowd of 6,207 Saturday night at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. Victory in the 2-hour 50-minute match gave USC its first NCAA men's team championship since the volleyball team won its last title in 1980.

The Trojans had lost in the volleyball final four times since then, and Yoder's teams were runners-up each of the last three years.

Their frustration ended on a night when junior hitter Lawrence Hom was brilliant off the bench, helping USC become only the second team in the 19-year history of the tournament to win the championship after losing the first two games of the final match. Hom, who replaced Scott McKeough with USC trailing, 4-1, in the third game, sparked the Trojans with his steady passing and defense, and also was successful on 37.9% of his kill attempts, "We just weren't getting any offense or defense out of that position," Yoder said. "We needed a change and (Hom) had been playing well in practice. I just thought it was right for him. "I thought if anybody could turn it around, he could. And he played the match of his life."

Said Hom, who opened the season as a starter, but lost his position to McKeough: "I'm just happy I got in. It was kind of a surprise, but everything just clicked. We started doing everything right." The Trojans had played well to that point, but UCSB rallied at the end to win each of the first two games. "They just put rushes on us," Yoder said. "They were playing so well. It was just a great effort to stay in there and turn it around." Hom's play and the dominance of the middle by freshman Bryan Ivie, who put down 50% of his kill attempts, ruined Santa Barbara.

"We didn't defend Hom very well," said UCSB Coach Ken Preston, whose team made its first appearance in the final since 1975. "He hit high off the hands and I don't think we defended him deep enough." Said UCSB's David Rottman, who took a match-high 74 sets: "I think it was just a matter of them gaining some confidence and feeling better about themselves. And it just snowballed. "The ball started falling on our side more than it did on their side."
