As expected, fourth-ranked Laguna is 3-0 so far in the playoffs and traveled this past Wednesday four hours (178 miles) to Santa Ynez for the Division 4 semifinals on the Pirate’s courts.
Breakers had made the trek back in 2011 for a similar match and came away with a big victory. Laguna has advanced to the D4 semifinals six of the past 10 years with five D4 finals appearances but no titles. If Laguna can escape # 9 Santa Ynez on May 16 they will face either # 10 Carpinteria, # 2 Bolsa Grande or Redlands East Valley on May 18 at the Claremont Club.
Wednesday, May 9, fourth seed Breakers used their bench and easily beat Wilson/Hacienda Heights 13-5 on the Laguna courts Friday, May 11. At the University of Redlands, they defeated Yucaipa 11-7.
Monday, May 14, they swamped Laguna Blanca from Hope Ranch/Santa Barbara 15-3. Mason Lebby and Andrew Johnson had little resistance in sweeping their singles matches with the fifth-ranked Owls while coach Rick Conkey was able to do some shuffling in the doubles and still take seven of nine sets.Firebrand Media LLC wants comments that advance the discussion, and we need your help to accomplish this mission.
