At this time of year everything goes. Teams and

individuals go up for league championships, hoping to get an extension to their

season by getting an invite to the postseason.

St. Monica

is in that boat with its football team squeezing into the playoffs this week.

The Mariners will take a road trip to play Rio Honda Prep in the first round of

the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division playoffs. St. Monica made the postseason despite a 3-7

overall record and finishing last in the Santa Fe League.

Still, this

is a great opportunity for the Mariners to show that they belong in the

postseason. However, the football team isn’t the only fall athletic program at

St. Monica with something to prove.

The Mariners

are having success across the board with their fall season teams. After

finishing third in the Camino Real League, St. Monica’s volleyball team took on

Mission Prep in a playoff home game Tuesday night.

On the

tennis front, St. Monica’s Sofia Booth (second) and Kaeleigh Cornwall (third)

both shined in the Del Rey League singles run.

Katie Grimm (second) and Pablo De Mare-Reynoso had spectacular meets at

the Del Rey League finals. Acacia Shyr has been a model of consistency for the

Mariners this season, finishing third in Del Rey golf play.
