Fall Sports Update

Girls Tennis (3-1)

Breakers suffered their first loss of the season with a series of bad breaks against Edison on Wednesday, Sept. 5 on the local courts.

Top singles player Brooke Michaels fell in the first game of the second set due to an ankle sprain, forcing a default of that set with a score of 0-6.  No. 2 singles player Kira Hamilton then had to exit the match early after her second set due to the flu.  Finally, No. 3 doubles player Stephanie Tat fell to a severe leg cramp forcing her team to default their third match with the score of 3-5.

Since the match ended in a 9-9 tie, the actual games won-loss determined the heartbreaking outcome.  The following day, Breakers had no problems defeating Mission Viejo.

This week Laguna faced Northwood and San Clemente in a pair of non-league matches and open their league play on Sept. 18 at Saddleback. Breakers are going for their seventh straight Orange Coast League title and have won all 52 league matches. Their consecutive win streak going back to their Pacific Coast League days is now at 61 straight matches.  This is the 38th season CIF has sponsored girls tennis team playoffs.  Since the first year in 1975, Laguna has won 17 league titles and 11 section crowns with a 83-21 playoff record.

Boys Water Polo (1-0)

The 49th season of boys water polo opened last Friday with Laguna, ranked No. 4 in the CIF’s Southern Section Division 2 defeating host Villa Park, ranked No. 8, 14-9. Jack Dodson led the way with four goals and three assists while Riley Thomas added three scores, Caleb Scott two goals and Aki Anderson two goals.  Maxx McCarter recorded 17 saves in the cage and Camron Hauer had four steals and five assists.

This week the Breakers faced the division’s top team, Agoura this past Thursday at Oaks Christian. This weekend Laguna is in the Santa Barbara Invitational opening on Friday, at 1 p.m., with Northern California power Miramonte (Orinda) at the Dos Pueblos pool. Breakers are seeded third in their pool, which includes Loyola (# 3 D-I) and Dos Pueblos ( # 6 D-II). Defending champion Mater Dei (#  D-I) is the 16-team tournament favorite.  The format calls for seven-minute quarters with sudden-death for overtime matches. Last year Laguna finished ninth.

 

Next week Laguna will be participating in the Newport Harbor – South Coast Tournament from Thursday thru Saturday.
