A year ago, the Laguna Beach Trophy Invitational was brought back to life. On Saturday, the fabled track and field competition will resume bigger than ever. About 1,000 athletes from 20 schools will be at Guyer Field on the Laguna Beach High campus Saturday for the event, which is being run for the 43rd time.

Tuesday marked the beginning of a new month and possibly, a new direction for the Laguna Beach baseball team. The Breakers picked up their first Orange Coast League win of the season by posting a 12-3 rout over host Estancia. Laguna had been 0-2 in league play heading into Tuesday’s game. Laguna got off to a strong start in the first two innings, scoring all 12 of their runs in their first two at-bats. The 12 runs resulted in victory for the Breakers. “We played a good game in the first couple of innings,” Laguna coach Jeff Sears said.

A rough first inning Tuesday led to an unexpected playoff exit for the Laguna Beach High baseball team. The Breakers saw one of the best seasons in program history come to a halt in Riverside, as La Sierra, which scored early, and a lot, took a 12-2 second-round win in the CIF Southern Section Division 4 playoffs. The Eagles erupted for eight runs in the bottom of the first inning, and Laguna never recovered. They scored four more runs in the fifth to extend their lead to 12-1.

Opening day of the 2013 track and field season at Laguna Beach High turned out to be memorable for a 400-meter relay team. Laguna's boys' 4x100 squad of Reece Barton, Robert Clemons, Nathan Lancaster and Drake Martinez raced to a new school record time in the event with a mark of 44.67 seconds. The performance came in a tri-meet against Riverside La Sierra and El Dorado. The Breakers scored 42 points in the meet. El Dorado had 41 points and La Sierra scored 40. In addition to the relay record, Martinez won the 100, Lancaster the 200 run, and Kyler Pike won the high jump.

It has been rare not to see Mike Churchill roam a sideline at football games over the course of the past 40 years. Either in the capacity of head coach or assistant coach, Churchill had been a field fixture at eight different high schools, two community colleges and one university. Beginning this fall, his presence still will be known on the sideline, but he'll be taking in the action in a whole new capacity. Churchill is about to begin his first school year as athletic director at Laguna Beach High, a position he said he took over in April and one he's become more and more familiar with since he's taken on the job. He comes to Laguna after resigning as head coach of the football program at La Sierra High in Riverside.

School board members Tuesday unanimously approved Donald Austin as the high school's new principal. The hiring process for Austin came after the controversial resignation of Principal Nancy Blade in early February. Despite an attempt by Blade to rescind her resignation ? and hundreds of supporters petitioning to have her reinstated ? the board declined to accept the requests. "I'm in the process of saying goodbye while looking forward to moving on," Austin said, after announcing his departure to his staff at La Sierra High School in Riverside on Wednesday morning.

When Laguna Beach High School Principal Don Austin cheerfully congratulated staff at the June 14 school board meeting, no one knew it would be his last. He announced his resignation two days later. Monday is his last day after five years in the position. Pending Huntington Beach Union High School District's board approval, Austin will start as assistant superintendent of educational services July 1. Late last week, Laguna's district announced that Thurston Middle School Principal Joanne Culverhouse will take Austin's place.
