Missing four key players from its roster did little to slow the Laguna Beach High girls? water polo team from earning a second-place finish last weekend at the Villa Park Summer Tournament. Playing without four starters ? and, on some occasions, a fifth player ? Laguna used a strong effort from the frosh/soph core of its players and received senior leadership from Taylor Dodson and Maddy Duncan. Assistant Coach Trevor Lyle led the team through to the finals. Laguna 10, Regency 6: Laguna opened the tournament June 27 with a four-goal win over Regency, a Mater Dei-based squad.

Going into the season, the Laguna Beach High boys' water polo team knew what lay ahead of them in the first week. An unforgiving early schedule had them facing two ranked opponents right off the bat, then heading north to face more stiff competition. That's just what Laguna Coach Ethan Damato wants for his team, which is to be tested. The Breakers opened their season Sept.13 and scored a 13-6 victory over visiting Villa Park. Tuesday at Laguna, they held off Claremont, 10-6.

The Laguna Beach baseball team has set the new standard for the program. A stirring run to begin the 2011 season caught the eye of many who — outside Laguna circles — didn't really take much notice of the Breakers before the season's first pitch. That all changed when Laguna ran off 14 victories to establish a new school record and creep into the CIF Southern Section Division 4 rankings, where it currently holds down the No. 5 spot. The Breakers picked up victory No. 12 March 31 by walloping visiting Saddleback, 25-0, in an Orange Coast League game.
