Mike Sciacca, Independent Perhaps the toughest part of Marina High's 59-54 Tuesday loss to El Dorado in the Sweet 16 round of the CIF Southern Section Division I-A boys basketball playoffs was that Vikings Coach Roger Holmes had to say goodbye to a senior class that had been one of the most successful in school history. Of the 15-player roster, 13 were seniors, including three starters. But this group of seniors, despite having had its dream of winning a Southern Section title ended in a third round loss, has plenty to celebrate: not only has this class won various lower division Sunset League titles, it also won the school its first league championship at the varsity level in eight years, and to reach back even further, its 24-4 record, which included a 16-game win streak, was the best winning percentage (86-percent)

The Marina High girls basketball team opened its own tournament this week with a pair of nail-biting games, and Wednesday's consolation bracket meeting with a good El Dorado squad figured to fit into that category.

The win puts Marina (9-4) in today's consolation championship game, where the Vikings will take on Alemany of Mission Hills in a 1:30 p.m. tip-off.

The Marina and Huntington Beach high baseball teams had a few opportunities to put runs on the scoreboard in their second-round CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoff games, but neither could capitalize and saw their seasons come to an end. In a pair of matchups pitting Sunset League teams against two from the Century League, Marina fell, 2-0, to visiting Esperanza, while Huntington lost, 6-1, at El Dorado. Marina's season was on the line heading into the bottom of the seventh inning against Esperanza, but the Vikings had immediate hope as they loaded the bases with one out. The Vikings, however, could not push a run across and the victory by the seventh-ranked Aztecs, champions of the Century League, sent them to Friday's quarterfinal game against Mater Dei. "I thought we might do it there, at the end," Marina Coach Bob Marshall said.
