They started the Monte Vista Tournament with a 20 – 2 trouncing of Morse and followed that with a 22 2 win over Castle Park. La Jolla was next and didn’t fare any better than the two previous opponents as the Lady Mariners defeated La Jolla 28 – 0. High Tech SD put up little resistance as they lost to Mar Vista 13 -1. Sage Creek brought the Lady Mariners back to earth and snapped the Lady Mariners 4 game winning streak with a 15 – 8 win over Mar Vista. The Lady Mariners got back to their winning ways beating Monte Vista 18 – 8 to take 2nd place in the tournament and improving their record to 5-5 for the season.
