Laguna Beach’s boys’ golfers make the grade

The Laguna Beach High boys’ golf team can do much more than hit a small, white ball really far.

The Breakers golfers have been named a CIF Southern Section Team Academic Award winner for 2008-09. Their collective 3.667 grade-point average was tops among schools in the section with an enrollment less than 1,500.

“Last year, our football team was the top academic team in the state," Laguna Beach Athletic Director Mike Churchill said. “This is the same thing all over again. It’s pretty good."

The boys’ golf team, the defending Orange Coast League champion, will be honored April 22 in a pregame ceremony prior to the Los Angeles Angels’ home game against the Detroit Tigers.


Churchill said it’s the second year in a row that every Laguna sports team has a collective GPA over 3.0.

“That just tells you a little bit about the kids we’re working with," he said.
