The Breakers resume league competition April 24 hosting Godinez, their final regular-season league meet. The Orange Coast League prelims are May 5 and finals are May 8, both at the Laguna track.
The Breakers also competed Saturday at the Trabuco Hills Invitational. Cameron Zuziak (9:47) won the boys' 3,200 meters in an event where teammate Casey Kowproski (9:51) finished third. Liam Corrigan (4:44) won the boys' 1,600, finishing ahead of Nathan Sweet (4:44), who placed second.
"Most of the boys that raced had their seasons best times," Laguna boys' Coach Scott Wittkop said.
Laguna is scheduled to compete at the 47th annual Arcadia Invitational. The meet starts Friday and runs through Saturday. Wittkop said the Laguna foursome of Zuziak (1,200 meters), Nathan Lancaster (400 meters), Drake Butler (800 meters) and Kowproski (1,600 meters), will compete in the boys' distance medley relay.
The Breakers upped their Orange Coast League record to 4-0 Tuesday by sweeping visiting Cost Mesa, 25-13, 25-17, 25-21.
Junior opposite Jack Burgi had 13 kills, senior setter JP Wollam 14 digs, and senior setter Alec Wulff had 25 assists.
Laguna, ranked third in CIF Southern Section Division 2, improved to 8-3 overall.
Laguna Coach Darren Utterback called the Breakers' blocking effort the "key highlight" of Tuesday's win.
"I'm really happy with the progress we have made in our offense," Utterback said. "We are a much more offensively balanced team than we were at the beginning of the season."
The Breakers took on Calvary Chapel in league play Thursday. The score wasn't available at press time.
Following spring break next week, the Breakers return to OCL play April 22, hosting Saddleback at 5:30 p.m.
The Breakers hosted El Toro in a nonleague match Tuesday, and edged the Chargers, 10-8.
In a tight match, the score was tied, 3-3, after the first round, and 6-6 after the second round.
