Mike Sciacca It's been a nearly a week since the Laguna Beach High girls' basketball team has been together on the court, but Stacy Howard's eager crew is finally getting in some practice time in preparation for its final nonleague game of the season. The Breakers will visit Newport Harbor at 7 p.m. Thursday in a nonleague clash. It's the team's final tuneup before they launch Pacific Coast League play on Jan. 14 by hosting Corona del Mar. "We're excited to be back on the court," Howard said during a shoot-around the team held on New Year's Eve day. "It's been a while since the girls have been together."

The Breakers opened up a 4-0 lead through one quarter and continued their defensive shutout in the second quarter, to open up a 6-0 halftime advantage, which led to an eventual, 9-5 victory.

What had the potential to be a sweep and big nonleague win for the Laguna Beach boys’ volleyball team Wednesday turned into a five-game match that ended in a 22-25, 19-25, 26-24, 25-16, 15-11 win for host Newport Harbor. Laguna was on fire in the first two games and made strong plays that took the Breakers to a 2-0 lead in the match and on the brink of a triumph over a Newport Harbor team that is ranked fourth in Division I and just last week handed No. 1-ranked Mira Costa a loss.

For as tremendous the journey has been to date, the season now comes down to a single game for the Laguna Beach High girls' water polo team. The Breakers have reached their ultimate destination, the William Woollett Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine but not yet, they say, their ultimate goal. It's been a simple goal, to win a CIF Southern Section championship, but never an easy one. The Breakers, the target of many a team in 2014, have put themselves to do just that. Top-seeded Laguna will return to the Woollett Center Saturday for its final game of the season, the CIF Southern Section Division 1 championship final, three days after the Breakers took care of Los Alamitos, 12-5, at the same pool site they have been working and fighting toward to reach at the end the season.

When Laguna Beach and Newport Harbor get together in the pool for girls' water polo competition, the action almost never seems to lack drama. Saturday at the Laguna pool, it was turned up a notch. The sixth-ranked Breakers and fourth-ranked Sailors went up against each other for a second time this season in a CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal showdown where a berth in the semifinals awaited the winner. After a deadlock through regulation, it was Newport that survived to move on, following an 11-10 overtime victory.

A sluggish start to Wednesday's opener at the Estancia Coast Classic couldn't deter the Laguna Beach High boys' basketball team from opening the tournament with a big win. The Breakers began to pull away from Newport Harbor in the second half at Estancia High, and went on to claim a 59-45 victory over the Sailors. The win moved Laguna to 9-5 overall and came on the heels of an impressive, double-digit win Saturday over Corona del Mar. "I don't think either team played well at the start," Laguna Coach Bret Fleming said.

Prior to the start of the 2014 Holiday Cup, Laguna Beach High Coach Ethan Damato called the two-day event one of the "premiere" girls' water polo tournaments. It was also one of the major tournament titles, he said, that had eluded the Laguna program throughout the years. That changed Saturday at Newport Harbor High. In a key matchup of the season between the two of the top-ranked teams in CIF Southern Section Division 1, No. 1 Laguna defeated No. 3-ranked and tournament co-host Newport Harbor, 11-8.
