It has been 20 years since Huntington Beach High won its first CIF Southern Section championship in boys' volleyball. Entering the week, the Oilers were one win away from playing for another title. Huntington advanced to Wednesday's Division 1 playoff semifinals by sweeping its third-straight postseason opponent. This time, it was Dana Hills which felt the wrath of the Oilers, who scored a 25-20, 25-18, 25-21 quarterfinal road victory over the South Coast League runner-up. The win, the 11th-consecutive by sweep for Sunset League champion Huntington, put the No. 4-seeded Oilers, 29-2 overall, into a semifinal match at home Wednesday against top-seeded Mira Costa (Bay League No. 1)

The Marina High baseball team marched into the Final Four of the CIF Southern Section Division I baseball playoffs by edging visiting Mater Dei, 4-3. The nail-biter needed eight innings to be decided and it ended when Daric Barton delivered a solo home run in the bottom half of the frame to lift the Vikings to their 22nd win and extend their season. Wes Etheridge started on the mound for Marina but it was reliever Brooks Walling who got the win. Walling came on in the seventh inning and shut down the Monarchs in their final two at-bats in running his record to 6-1. Marina also pulled out a tough one in second round play as the Vikings used Jason Jordan's squeeze bunt RBI in the top of the eighth inning to pull out a 1-0 victory at Arcadia.
