During spring break, the Edison and Marina baseball teams headed south to participate in the San Diego Lions Tournament for the 61st annual event, and Marina returned home with a division championship.
The Vikings won their final four games in the Premiere division to capture the title, capping the run with a 6-1 victory over Paramount on April 21 at Coronado High. Edison, meanwhile, won its final two games in the Classic division to finish 3-1 overall.
Mitch Huffman threw six innings in Marina's 6-1 title-clinching win over Paramount to win the 16-team Premiere division. The Vikings started the tournament on a down note playing, as Coach Bob Marshall said, "poor defense" without clutch hitting, and lost, 5-4, to Carlsbad. They came back in their second outing to blast Coronado, 10-0. Huffman picked up his first tourney win by throwing no-hit ball over four innings. The Vikings also belted out 11 hits and didn't commit an error.
