The Laguna Beach High girls' water polo team won two of four matches last weekend at the Tournament of Champions in Santa Barbara. The 16-team tournament featured several of the Southern Section's top-rated squads. The tournament was won by Foothill (No. 1, Division I). In its first match, Laguna, which was ranked No. 1 in Division II, took on the division's third-ranked team Agoura and it was the Chargers who won 10-9 in sudden-death overtime.

Mike Sciacca A quirk in the schedule won't deter the Laguna Beach High girls' water polo team from achieving goals they have set. Although they will jump back-and-forth between league play to nonleague play during the final three weeks of the regular season, the Breakers still have an eye on a possible Pacific Coast League championship. The team's goal of qualifying for the upcoming CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs is always on the agenda.

Laguna Beach High's boys' cross country team showed its depth in defeating a talented Tesoro squad, 24-31, and a young University team, 20-40, in a Pacific Coast League tri-meet at William R. Mason Park. It was the opening day of league competition for all three schools. The two victories were encouraging, Laguna coach Dave Brobeck said, because the Breakers defeated the Titans and Trojans without the use of five their top 10 runners due to injury: Shane Riehl, calf and shin; Shawn Pfender, shin; Jeremy Eaton, knee and illness; Ryan McCarter, shin; Michael Brown, fibia.

Mike Sciacca In the past four years, Kyle Hogan and his game of basketball have found a home at three different high schools. Circumstances dictated his moves from school to school, gym to gym, but in each of those instances, it is safe to say, those schools have been the better for having him in the lineup. In this 2002-03 boys' prep basketball season, Kyle Hogan has made his final stop, playing for the Laguna Beach Breakers. He played at Servite and Villa Park before making his way to south county, where he will play out his senior year.

Bobby Monroe turned in a solid all-round performance Sunday and the Laguna Beach eighth-grade All-Net team remained unbeaten on the 2002 National Junior Basketball season by downing host Whittier, 62-54. Monroe scored 25 points, hauled in 13 rebounds and blocked four shots as Laguna ran its record to 5-0. Ian Butters had a big hand in the victory, too, as his outstanding ball handling and outside shooting allowed the Laguna guard to hit four, three-point shots en route to an 18-point game.

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.
