The Breakers had begun the tournament Friday with pool play. They swept San Clemente (25-16, 25-16), Downey (25-12, 25-14) and host Edison (25-17, 25-22) in pool play before moving on to championship bracket action.
Other tournament wins included a 25-13, 25-16 sweep of Ayala and a come-from-behind 19-25, 25-14, 15-8 victory over El Dorado.
"To win any kind of tournament, a team has to play consistent volleyball," Stewart said. "When you're tired, when you're sore, you just have to keep playing hard. We weren't playing our best, but we hung in there."
In the title match win over Harvard/Westlake, the No. 4-ranked team in Division I-A, Dana Hutchinson had 17 kills and 10 digs, Zoe Garrett 12 kills, Tiffany Chen seven digs and Alex Palmer 27 set assists.
Stewart praised the play of setters Palmer and Mychaela Miller.
"Both served tremendously throughout the tournament," he said. "They both did phenomenal jobs."
At 6:30 p.m. Monday, Laguna faces another stiff round challenge when it plays at Mira Costa. The Mustangs are ranked No. 2 in Division I-AA.
"How you play in tournaments throughout the season counts down the road when it comes to seedings in CIF and State," Stewart said. "If we keep playing every point hard, good things will happen."

Laguna opened its 2006 season with a pair of games that went to the wire.
In its season opener, the Breakers and Foothill were locked in a tense battle at Tustin High, but it was the host Knights who were able to gain control at the end of the match to produce a 9-7 victory.
On Monday, Laguna faced the same scenario as it traveled to Los Angeles to face host Loyola, which went ahead late in the match to score a 7-5 victory.
