Having started prior to the year-end holidays the Southern California prep girls season picks up momentum this weekend with the annual Tournament of Champions in Santa Barbara.
One year ago the popular question was whether anyone could beat Laguna Beach. Dos Pueblos conveniently squashed that conversation with an 11-8 victory over the Breakers on Thursday. The loss is the first for Laguna in 63 games and may offer some hope to the 23 other Tournament of Champions teams that the title is more up for grabs than in recent years.
Play in games are already complete after Thursday while the top seeds begin competition on Friday. Follow along; the schedule and results are online via spreadsheet.
