7th win gives Laguna title

Laguna Beach’s Eighth-Grade All-Net boys’ basketball team put the

finishing touches on an unbeaten fall league season last Sunday by

edging Team Temecula, 38-33, in a hotly-contested showdown between

two undefeated teams at Edison High.


The victory gave Laguna Beach a 7-0 record and the Green East

Conference title, denying tall and athletic Team Temecula (6-1) that


“The Fall League is designed to get the kids ready for competitive


Winter League play,” Laguna Beach Coach Brett Fleming said. “It gives

the kids the opportunity to play games, rather than just practice.

“I thought the kids played well and gained some game experience.”

Laguna Beach’s Eighth-Grade All-Net team is comprised of starters

Bobby Monroe, Brian Delano, Ian Butters, Ty Fleming and Chris Hyden,

plus Nathan Pickett, Patrick Curran and newcomer Brennan Healey.

The eight-member Green East Conference consisted of teams from

Laguna Beach, Temecula, Whittier, Newport Mesa, South Coast, Tustin,


Niguel Aliso and Villa Park.
