Ready for new beginning

The Laguna Beach High softball begins a new season under the direction of a new head coach, Mark Linton.

The Breakers open play Saturday in the Costa Mesa Tournament. On Tuesday, they play a 3:15 p.m. nonleague game at Bolsa Grande and open their home schedule at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday against Buena Park in another nonleague game.

Below is a capsule look at the 2007 Breakers:

  • Head coach: Mark Linton
  • Returning starters: Kelsey Linton, IF/P, Soph.; Shannon Sweeney, IF/P, Jr.; Caitlyn Barretto, IF, Jr.; Charlotte Bell, IF, Sr.; Alivia LeVeque, IF, Sr.
  • Remaining roster: Juli Reed, IF, Sr.; Lexy Altman, OF, Soph.; Jami Andrews, OF, Jr;; Amy Briano, P, Sr.; Megan Friday, P, Soph.; Courtney Capobianco, IF, Jr.; Holden Penney, C, Soph.; Diana Smith, C, Jr.; Karli Cornell, OF, Soph.; Arlene Melchor, IF, Sr.; Jennifer Osario, C, Soph.; Cindy Ramirez, IF, Soph.
  • Outlook: "This is a very strong team," Linton said. "Quite a few of these girls can play multiple positions. They are aggressive, talented and have a strong desire to play the game. This group of girls can win this division and go to CIF."
  • Season opener: Saturday at the Costa Mesa Tournament.
  • Home opener: Wednesday, 3:15 p.m., vs. Buena Park
