Two athletes from the Laguna Beach High baseball team and three from the school's boys' volleyball team have been named All-CIF Southern Section in their respective sports.
In baseball, seniors Grant Wilhelm and Preston GrandPre made the Division 4 First Team, and senior Richie Nunis was named Second Team.
In boys' volleyball, seniors Jake Wyett, Noah Blanton and JP Wollam made the Division 2 First Team.
"I'm not surprised one bit," Laguna baseball Coach Mike Bair said of Wilhelm's and GrandPre's inclusion on the Division 4 First Team. "They carried us this season. They are tough kids who play hard and had outstanding senior seasons. I'm very proud of the both of them."
