Sports Resume in August
Ted Clarke assumes the athletic director role and is acting head football coach for the 2015 season. Laguna’s 17th football coach is working with thin ranks due to the delay in hiring a replacement coach. Laguna elected to wait on a search until the new athletic director was selected. The resulting delays resulted in a significant attrition of returning players. The first game is Aug. 28 against Valley Christian at Guyer Field.
