With a record of 4 and 0, they played on Saturday against Calvary Christian Academy where the Mariners came away with a 14 - 2 victory and a seat for the championship game up against Monte Vista scheduled for today.

In the championship game the Mariners took a quick 2-0 lead, but lost that lead in the top of the 5th with a score of 3-2 Monte Vista. The Lady Mariners never gave up and quickly responded to that in the bottom of the 5th with 2 more runs, putting MVHS in the lead 4-3. In the top of 6th the Mariners held Monte Vista scoreless and came back with some powerful bats to score 9 runs in the bottom of the 6th ending the game with a 10 run mercy rule. Winning the Final Championship Game by a score of 13 to 3 and making the Mar Vista High School Lady Mariners the Monte Vista Gold & Silver Invitational Tournament Champs! They improved their record to 6 and 0 on the season!
