Laguna girls captured nine of 15 events to secure their sixth straight Orange Coast League meet on Thursday, May 3, at Costa Mesa’s Mustang Stadium. The meet win handed the overall league track crown to the Breakers, their eighth in 12 seasons of Orange Coast League competition.
Frosh runner Majia Shaw won three individual events and participated in two relays victories. Her time in the 200 broke the school record set by Rennie Durand in 1981.
Jessica Burk was a double winner and was the repeat champion in the 300 Hurdles. The 4 x 100 relay also broke the school record of 49.8 set back in 1974 by Lisa Wankier, Pathiba Raj, Karen Bourcki, and Sands Minter.

An article in the May 11 edition that relied on official results reported incorrectly that Majia Shaw ran in the 4 x 100 relay at the Orange Coast League track meet May 3. Coach Steve Lalim said alternate Reilyn Turner ran in her place, a substitution that apparently went unrecorded.
Ryan Smithers took the 1600 and 3200 meter runs while Jet Rocha took the 400 meter run to a third place finish in the league meet and a second place overall tie with Estancia in the final league standings. Godinez won their third consecutive title.
Breaker Event winners:
1600 M run: Ryan Smithers 4:22.82
400 M Dash: Jet Rocha 51.79
3200 M Run: Ryan Smithers 9:56.81
The league meet champions automatically advance to the SS CIF prelims next week and the second and third place finishers also advance if they meet the qualifying standards for the division. Breakers are in Division 3 as the smallest school in the enrollment bracket. Next season the Breakers join the ultra-competitive Sunset League. The division assignments (Wave or Surf) will be released after the spring sports season concludes in May.Firebrand Media LLC wants comments that advance the discussion, and we need your help to accomplish this mission.
