Sears back in business at Laguna Beach

Jeff Sears is back at Laguna Beach High, and he has the baseball team perfect again in the Orange Coast League.

Sears last guided the Breakers in 2011, when they went 15-0 and claimed their first league title in 48 years. Sears left after his fourth year to take over the program at Servite. He coached Servite four seasons before the Friars let him go after they placed fifth in the always-tough Trinity League and missed the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs in 2014.

Back then, Sears said he wouldn’t coach again, only to spend last season as an assistant at Edison.

Sears is back at the helm, and Laguna Beach is 9-0 in league this year, ahead of 5-2...
