We hope everybody had a great Christmas and New Years. The end of Winter Break is upon us, which means that we are halfway through the Winter Sports Season. Here is an update on each of our Winter Sports:

Roller Hockey: The Mariner Roller Hockey team, one of the few teams that is co-ed, is currently 3-2 and 3-1 in league play. The team is led by first year Head Coach Eloy Rodriguez, who was an All-League Performer four years ago. They are led by returners Isaac Suarez, Tiffany O’Neil and Jackie Nieto. The Mariners have three games this upcoming week against Hilltop, Sweetwater and Southwest. Their only league loss is against Sweetwater, so they look to even the series this week.

Cheerleading: This is the first year that Mar Vista has competed in the CIF Cheer Championships, which was held at La Costa Canyon in mid-December. This is the only CIF sanctioned event of the season. The Mariners are led by veteran coach, Eddie Michel and his assistant Tatyana Garcia along with captains Lisette Soto and Isis Munoz. This is only the second year that the CIF has sanctioned Cheerleading as a sport, and the Mariners competed in a traditional cheer routine. This was a great learning experience for the Cheer Team that they’ll be able to carry into next season.

Girls Soccer: The Lady Mariners, led by long-time coach Gisela Wolfe, are current 6-10 overall after a grueling pre-season and Mesa League schedule. The Lady Mariners are led by returning All-League Performers and team captains Giselle Medina, junior, and Aurora Santillan, senior. This is the first year that the Lady Mariners moved up to the Mesa League, which is the top tier of the Metro Conference. The Lady Mariners finished 2-1 in both of the their preseason tournaments, the Baron’s Tournament and the Vaquero Invitational. This upcoming week, they will take on Eastlake and Chula Vista in Mesa League play.

Boys Soccer: Led by fourth-year coach Nacho Pena, the Mariners are currently 0-9-4 with ties coming against Morse, Kearny, Mira Mesa and Hilltop. The Mariners are a young team led by captains Kevin Martinez, Daniel Martinez, and Yahir Galaviz. Their next three League opponents are Chula Vista, Hilltop and Sweetwater.

Boys Basketball: Led by Coach Josh Hill, who is in his fifth year. The Boys Basketball team is currently 8-7 and having doubled their win total from last year. They are led by captain Gabriel Schiazza, captain Chris Nichols and Dylan Wolfe. Schiazza leads the team in rebounds, seven per game, with Nichols leading the team in points and Wolfe leading the team in assists. The Mariners hosted their own tournament, the Mariner Melee, which they went 2-2 and came in fourth place after a tough loss to San Ysidro. The Mariners are currently 2-2 in League play and will play in three league games this week: San Ysidro, Castle Park and Sweetwater.

Girls Basketball: The Lady Mariners are led by first year coach Joel Vizcarra and senior captains Lauren Wold and Jonalyn Almayda. They bumped up to Division III this season and played in two tough tournaments during their pre-season, the Matador Classic hosted by Mount Miguel High School and the Gold Coast Holiday Classic hosted by Bonita Vista. The Lady Mariners are currently 2-2 in South Bay League play coming off of wins against Castle Park and Southwest. They continue South Bay League play this week against Sweetwater, San Ysidro and Castle Park.

Girls Water Polo: Led by long-time aquatics coach Chad Kavanagh, the Lady Mariners sit at 8-9 overall but 3-0 in Mesa League Play. They played a challenging non-league schedule with three tournaments: The Eagle Challenge hosted by Granite Hills High School, the Winter Classic, and the San Diego Open. They are lead by senior goalie Emily Leslie, who has blocked 169 shots this year, and offensive specialist junior Melanie Clamp, who leads the teams in goals and assist, 32 and 15 respectively. Freshman Tatum Billings is also making a big splash on the scene as she is second on the team in goals and assist, 25 and 14 respectively. They have a big week this week in League play as they take on Eastlake,who is undefeated in League as well, Mater Dei, and Bonita.

Wrestling: The Mariner Wrestling Program is led by first year Head Coach Ismael Covarrubias and assisted by Ed Delos Reyes, both Mar Vista High School Alums. Coach Delos Reyes is in his 50th year of coaching in the Sweetwater Union High School District. The Mariner Wrestling Program is comprised of boys and girls. Girls Wrestling is one of the fastest growing sports in the county and they have their own tournaments and CIF Championships. On the girl’s side Anya Rodriguez, Rose Chem, and Mary Cincotta have all medaled in tournaments this year. Roridguez got first place at Brawley & Olympian and second at Clairemont. Chem earned a second at Brawley and Clairemont. Cincotta received a first at Brawley and second at Clairemont and Monte Vista.
