It’s been a long time coming for the Laguna Beach High girls’ track and field program.
For the Breaker boys, such things are becoming second nature.
May 7 on their home track, site of the Orange Coast League championships, the Laguna girls captured their first outright league championship. The last time the program won a title was in 1981, the year they shared the South Coast League crown with Capistrano Valley.
The 29-year drought is over.
“The girls were very impressive,” girls’ Coach Steve Lalim said. “They worked hard all season and it paid off.”
On the same day, the Laguna boys continued their recent league domination by capturing their fourth-straight championship.
“The boys came through when they needed to,” boys’ Coach Scott Wittkop said. “It was a hard-fought victory.”
