A few years ago, American Express launched an advertising campaign that asked ?Where?s Andy?s Mojo?? It didn?t work out so well, as Andy Roddick lost in the first round of the U.S. Open that year. Don?t look now, but the Laguna Beach High tennis team is starting to get some of its mojo back. The Breakers did lose a pair of nonleague matches this week. On Monday, they lost at Cerritos, 9-9 (69-66 on games) in a rematch of last year?s Division IV final. Then on Wednesday, they suffered a 13-5 loss to Mater Dei at Los Caballeros in Fountain Valley.

EL TORO ? For a quarter, the Breakers were able to hang. But after that, the Corona del Mar High boys? basketball team was able to pull away Wednesday, earning a 68-31 victory Wednesday in the Orange County North/South Challenge at El Toro High.

The Laguna Beach High boys? soccer team returned Monday from the holiday break in dominating fashion to score a 2-0 nonleague victory over visiting Beckman at Guyer Field. Tommy Hooper scored twice in the first half in what Coach Patrick Coyne called ?two classic goals from left-sided attacks.? The Breakers dominated the first half and in the second half, with several ?great? saves made by freshman goalie Alec Williams.
