LAGUNA BEACH — Costa Mesa High stomped into Laguna Beach's visiting dugout with the opportunity to either win the Orange Coast League title or earn a co-championship with Estancia. However, the Mustangs returned to the bus to Costa Mesa with neither. The Breakers put together a huge second inning by scoring five runs on just three base hits and added another in the sixth with a pinch-hit home run to win, 6-0, spoiling Costa Mesa's bid to repeat as league champ. Going into Thursday, the Mustangs (12-13, 8-4 in league)

LAGUNA BEACH - It has been more than two decades now since Bill Barnett coached Erich Fischer at the 1992 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain. Team USA lost in the semifinals that year on the way to a fourth-place finish. On Saturday afternoon it was Fischer's daughter, Makenzie, who nearly sent Barnett's high school team home a round earlier in an upset loss. Makenzie Fischer, a sophomore at Laguna Beach High, scored a match-high six goals for the Breakers in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal match.

LAGUNA BEACH - The day before a big nonleague match against Laguna Beach High, Newport Harbor senior girls' water polo player Carolyn Smith wanted to talk to Coach Bill Barnett. Smith asked for more playing time. Barnett listened. "Throughout the season I've only been playing two quarters, and I've been trying really hard in practice," Smith said. "I wanted to know why I wasn't playing and he didn't really have an answer. He was like, 'OK, we'll try it out.'" Both player and coach looked smart after the Sailors beat the Breakers on Friday afternoon at Laguna Beach High.

It was a sunny day March 20, in so many ways besides just the weather. Former high school cross-country and track teammates from nearly 40 years ago meet again, and it was like they had never left. Laguna Beach High’s track was officially named after former UC Irvine athlete and Laguna legend Eric Hulst, maybe the best distance runner in Orange County prep history. And, oh yeah, the Laguna Beach Trophy Invitational returned after a more-than-25-year absence for its 42nd incarnation.

LAGUNA BEACH — Lance Stewart paced the sideline Tuesday night, like a basketball coach. He could have been another linesman, but thankfully that wasn’t needed in the nonleague girls’ volleyball match between his Laguna Beach High squad and his former team, Corona del Mar. “It’s a new rule this year,” Stewart said. “Like just about every other sport in the world, the coaches are finally allowed to stand up. For me, who tends to get excited sometimes, it actually helps calm me.” CdM Coach Darryl Gan stayed in his seat most of the match.

Dillan Freiberg had a foot in each of the Newport Harbor High football team’s scores in the season opener. His six extra-point kicks put him in the Orange County record book Friday. The left-footed kicker went six for six during the Sailors’ 45-7 nonleague victory at Aliso Niguel, pushing his consecutive streak to 60 straight successful PATs, a county record. He also kicked a 25-yard field goal. “It’s a great feat,” Sailors Coach Jeff Brinkley said of seeing Freiberg surpass the previous record set in 1993 by Tommy Louie of Irvine High.

LAGUNA BEACH — Where was No. 1 in the maroon jersey Friday night at Laguna Beach High? For much of the third quarter, Laguna Beach junior receiver Chris Paul was on the sideline with what appeared to be leg cramps. For much of the rest of the game, Paul was in the end zone, perhaps serving notice to Corona del Mar that this game wouldn’t be a blowout like past years. But in the end the Sea Kings were too deep and too balanced as they took control in the second half for a 65-34 nonleague victory.

LAGUNA BEACH — Last year, Nick Pederson said the Costa Mesa High baseball team actually practiced dog-piling for when the Mustangs won the Orange Coast League title. That moment never came after losing the last two games to Calvary Chapel. No practicing it this year, not even talking about it. “If [Coach Jim Kiefer] was going to make us practice it this year, we were going to say, ‘No,’ ” Pederson said. But the Mustangs finally had the chance to put it in motion Tuesday at Laguna Beach High.
