R oger Holmes is back in Baron blue. More than that, he has returned home. Holmes will now roam the sideline of a court where he once starred as a player, as he accepted the boys' basketball coaching position May 7 at his alma mater, Fountain Valley High. The 50-year-old replaces Chris Gray. In February, Holmes — the dean of Sunset League coaches — had announced that he was stepping down as coach of the boys' basketball team at Marina. He had been with the Vikings since 1994.

Holmes — who took pride in creating a family atmosphere within his program — decided it was time to step aside after discussing the matter with his immediate family: wife Debbie, son Brendan, a former Marina ball boy who is in his final year of a four-year varsity career, and daughter Kayla.

Mike Sciacca Family ties are what bind Roger Holmes and Todd Dixon, but on Tuesday night it was more like a family feud when Marina High hosted El Toro in a second-round game of the CIF Southern Section Division I-A boys' basketball playoffs. Although they talked on the court prior to the opening tip, the two head coaches, who are brothers-in-law, went to their respective corners and, for the night, became rivals. It was Holmes' Vikings who won this game, 48-45, to advance to a quarterfinal home showdown Friday with Thousand Oaks.

The pace has been, at the very least, frenetic, for the past season-and-a-half for the Marina High basketball team. Running a game strategy called, “The System,” the Vikings have been on the constant go, running and gunning, and substituting freely, from start to finish, come game time. While the young Vikings, a squad dotted with six juniors and four sophomores among the lineup, continue on with their torrid pace, things had begun to slow down about a month ago for their head coach.
