What could have been a very tough transition proved to be less disruptive than many would have thought last week as Laguna started the week without returning kill leader Alyse Wallace Ford, injured due to knee issues. It remained to be seen who among the young squad would now carry the “load” on hitting.

Sabrina Stillwell filled the vacuum on Thursday, Sept. 19 with 10 kills and three service aces as the Breakers hosted Corona del Mar losing 25-21, 25-13, 25-21. The following day, Laguna opened play at the 19th annual Durango Fall Classic easily beating Rim of the World, but losing to California’s top team and eventual tournament champion Torrey Pines. Laguna rebounded to sweep McQueen from Reno, Nev.

On Saturday, Breakers opened the day taking out division rival Thousand Oaks 25-20, 25-21 as the Breakers’  balance attack of Cameron Dorn, Sage Patchell, and Stillwell were too much for the Lancers. In the next match, Laguna lost to Marymount 25-19, 25-19 as the Sailors steady play was too much down the stretch.

Breakers then played their highly regarded CIF division rival El Dorado, fresh from a win over Mater Dei, beating the Golden Hawks 25-21, 24-26, 25-12. Breakers were leading in set two 23-17 but substitutions disrupted the game flow allowing El Dorado to outscore Laguna 9-1 to steal the set. Laguna starters returned to the court for the third set taking an early 12-3 lead to roll to an easy win. Breakers recorded 14 services aces against El Dorado while Dorn recorded 12 kills in 15 attempts. Laguna freely substituted in their final tournament match losing to Pleasant Grove of Utah.

Laguna’s tournament leaders: Kills: 39- Dorn, 35 – Patchell, 29 – Stillwell. Aces: 15 – Quirarte, 8 – Patchell, 7 – Dorn. Blocking: Quirarte with 2 solos, 9 assists. Digs: 59 – Holte, Assists: 66 – Rocha, 32 – Cunningham, 14 – Rubel.

Up next: Breakers hosted Dana Hills on Thursday, Sept. 26, and host Mira Costa next Tuesday, Oct. 1 at Dugger Gym

Girls Tennis  (4-2, 1-0)

Laguna appears to have lost the 2012 Orange Coast League MVP to injury for the season, which could affect how deep Laguna goes in the Division II playoffs. Brooke Michaels had been competing in doubles and her loss should not affect Laguna’s quest for an eighth straight league title and extend their consecutive league match win streak.

Breakers have not lost in conference play since Sept. 29, 2005 with an 11-7 loss to Corona del Mar back when Laguna was in the Pacific Coast League.
