Laguna’s 12 and under girls, coached by Erich Fischer and Scott Baldridge, continued to develop as a winning team taking first place in the Orange County Cup at the Woollett Aquatic Center in Irvine recently.
Starting with their first game, Laguna came out full force, crushing the SoCal team from Tustin 12-1. Later, as the older 12 year olds sat out, the younger 10 and 11 year olds took on the CHAWP team from Chino Hills and cruised to a 11-6 victory.
Sunday saw the same younger girls in action again, this time beating Newport Beach 14-11. For their final Sunday game, the combined team won 18-9 against Saddleback El Toro (SET) to take first place.
Club administrator Chad Beeler said younger players gained good experience in preparation for next month’s San Diego County Cup.
