Santa Monica High School

After a dramatic conclusion to the regular season, which saw the Vikings exchange wins with Culver City, both teams ended up with a share of the Ocean League Title. But the Vikings now have their eyes on a bigger prize: The CIF championships.

The California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section Division 3 playoffs begin on Thursday, and the Vikings will travel to Quartz Hills for the first round. The game starts at 3:15.

The Vikings finished 8-2 in the Ocean League, and 15-11 overall. Quartz Hills enters the playoffs 13-1 in the Golden League and 17-9 overall.

Crossroads

The Crossroads’ Roadrunners are headed into the CIF-SS Division 6 playoffs at full speed, looking to keep their Nine-game win streak going deep into the post season. The road starts at home, in Clover Park against Viewpoint on Friday, at 3:15.

The Roadrunners clinched the Delphic League with a perfect 8-0 league record, and a 15-7 record overall. Viewpoint owns a share of the Liberty League title, finishing with a 7-1 league record and a 16-5 overall record.

The two teams met earlier this season, on March 25. The Roadrunners won that meeting 5-3.

St. Monica

The St. Monica Mariners hit the road on Thursday for their opening game in the CIF-SS Division 5 playoffs. The Mariners, who finished second in the Camino Real League with a 9-6 league record and 15-10 overall, will face Heritage in the opening game at 3:15.
