"The kids have a done great job to get to the championship," Laguna Coach Peter Davidson said. "I think there's a real excitement among this group and they're ready.
"I wouldn't say I'm surprised at getting to the championship match, but being my first year, I didn't know what to expect. One thing I do know about our team is that these kids are good. They've proven that."
Laguna hasn't really been tested in the postseason. The Breakers began their playoff run May 11 with a 17-1 rout of Orcutt Academy (Freelance) of Santa Maria. They then took care of Lynwood, the runner-up in the San Gabriel Valley League, 16-2, two days later. On May 17, they downed Alhambra (Almont No. 2), 14-4.
Laguna moved on to Wednesday's final by winning, 14-4, at Santa Ynez on Tuesday.
"It's hard to put my finger on it, but I think the reason we've been so dominant is that we've had the ability to pull out tough matches," Davidson said. "We've won a lot of close matches and against Santa Ynez, two of our doubles were down and our No. 3 team was even, at the break, but they all came back to win. That says a lot about our kids and their tenacity.
"We just have a really good lineup. There's no big hole. It's pretty solid. We have a lot of weapons on this team and we've been able to move kids around. I think Austin (Loomis), at No. 3 singles, is a darkhorse who has a lot of talent."
Viewpoint, a school with an enrollment of 475 tucked away in Calabasas, has been the division's top-ranked team throughout the regular season. In postseason play, the Liberty League champion Patriots also haven't been challenged. They easily defeated Paloma Valley (18-0), Costa Mesa (16-2), Paramount (17-1) and La Quinta/Westminster (15-3), to get to a second straight final.
Last year, Viewpoint defeated Laguna in the semifinals, then defeated Rowland in the title match.
