Two Breakers advance to CIF Individuals

Two Laguna Beach golfers earned top-five finishes Wednesday as the 2011 Golden West League boys' golf tournament came to an end at El Dorado Park in Long Beach.

Andrew Palmer finished third and teammate Tim Peterson was fifth. Palmer and Peterson made first-team all-league and advanced to play in the first round of the CIF Individuals tournament May 16 at Skylinks Golf Course in Long Beach.

Palmer and Peterson both shot 74 and Mossimo Giau shot 81 at the prelims tournament Monday at Los Lagos Golf Course in Costa Mesa.

Jake Knapp of Estancia won the league's individual title.


Boys' Tennis

Laguna had all three of its singles players and doubles teams in Thursday's Orange Coast League tournament final, which was played at the Laguna courts.

Thursday's singles semifinals pitted Laguna teammates Benito Romeo and Teague Hamilton against one another. The winner of that match advanced to take on the winner of the match between Laguna's Jake Michaels and Costa Mesa's Alex Adams.

One of the two doubles semifinals has Laguna's No. 2 team of Austin Loomis/Owen Weber going up against its No. 3 team of Taylor Davidson/Nick Le. The other semifinal has the Breakers' top team of Hutton McKenna/Morgan Lebby taking on Costa Mesa's No. 1 team of Benny Quinonez/Tam Le.
