Ten months after winning a CIF Southern Section championship, the Laguna Beach boys' volleyball program opened its 2011season with a victory.
Laguna traveled Tuesday to Huntington Beach to take on Edison team with four starters back from a squad that won the 2010 CIF Division 2 and CIF Southern California Regional Division 3 titles. The Breakers opened the new season with a sweep of the Chargers, winning 25-17, 25-19, 25-16.
Senior opposite Robbie McKnight had 12 kills, senior outside hitter Alek Burk 10 kills, senior libero Troy Donenfeld eight digs, Burk and junior setter Jack Winn each had seven digs and Winn had 18 set assists.
Laguna entered the season ranked No. 1 in Division 2. Edison is ranked eighth in Division 1.
"I think we had some kids step up nicely and it was a pretty good win," Laguna Coach Lance Stewart said. "We had lost our starting outside hitter the day before and put a sophomore in there who hadn't played before and he did a real nice job.
