Last Saturday, Oct. 1 at Stanford University, the Breaker boys finished ninth out of 35 schools in the statewide Division 4 run won by So Cal’s Oaks Christian. Among Southern Section schools, Laguna was fourth after San Luis Obispo (5) and Fillmore (6). The top Laguna runner, Luke LaMontagne, finished at 16:48.50 for the 5K course. Also scoring for Laguna were Sebastian Fisher, Dylan Miller, Zachary Falkowski and Jaden Orr.


The in-season Orange Coast League cluster meet was held last Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the Irvine Regional Park and Costa Mesa edged Godinez for the boys title, going to the sixth runner tie breaker. Laguna finished third with a number of key runners held out for the Stanford Invitational. Ryan Whitlock led the Laguna runners on the three-mile course, finishing seventh overall at 16:25.38 time. Breakers can still take the overall league title if they capture first in the league finals on Nov. 2.

On the girl’s side, Laguna (23) easily outdistanced Costa Mesa (51) and Godinez (54) to take the meet. Ana Garcia finished second overall to pace the Breakers followed by Molly Cohn (third), Evie Cant (fourth), Sabrina Flagstad (sixth) and Grace LaMontagne (eighth).
