Laguna Beach athletes fared well in Orange Coast League competition during the past week and two Breakers teams — boys' tennis and boys' volleyball — began CIF Southern Section playoff action on a positive note.
On Wednesday, the boys' tennis team slipped past Schurr of Montebello, 10-8, in a Division 4 first-round match at Laguna. The Breakers' top singles player, Teague Hamilton, swept his matches (6-1, 6-0, 6-0) and No. 2 Morgan Lebby won two of three (4-6, 6-4, 6-3). Austin Loomis and Oliver Nasiell, at No. 1 doubles, won two of three (5-7, 7-6, 6-1), as did the No. 2 team of Matt Meisberger/Jared Boetes (5-7, 7-5, 6-4).
The win advances the Breakers, the No. 2 seed in the division, to a 3 p.m. home match Friday against Mojave River League champion Oak Hills. The Bulldogs eliminated Victor Valley, 15-3, Wednesday.
The winner advances to Tuesday's quarterfinals.
Laguna, which went 8-0 during Orange Coast League play to repeat as league champion, also took top honors in singles play and finished second in doubles at the OCL finals May 3. The singles final pitted Laguna's top two players, Hamilton and Lebby, both juniors, against each other with Hamilton winning the title.
