Dolphins earn championships

May 20, 2010

Leading the Dolphins that match in kills was Haar with nine. Marchiorlatti contributed to the Dolphin offense by adding six kills of his own and three blocked shots on defense. Seidner had an excellent defensive game digging out several keep points.

The Dolphins finished the season 7-1.

Sixth-grade Team The sixth-grade team played up all season competing in the middle-school level against teams of seventh- and eighth-graders. In the final, the younger Dolphins battled it out in a three-game thriller against Shoreline Baptist of Fountain Valley.

The Dolphins won the first game, lost the second and were at match point in the third game.

Shoreline held tough and pulled out the win. It was a great accomplishment for the Dolphins considering that they were so much younger than the competition. Key players for the Dolphins included Steven Guder, Zac Mills, Sterling Miles and Brett Elmajian. Other positive contributions came from Nick Stary, Jonah Masumoto, Kyle Kofoed, Enzo Burtin, Nick Tofolli and David Collins.


Prior to the final match, the sixth-grade Dolphins battled Calvary Chapel in the Division III semifinal at Mariners May 12. The Dolphins had just played Calvary the week prior and suffered a 2-0 loss.

But the Dolphins came together to win two straight games to reach the final.

Costa Mesa Little League Blue Jays Edge Dodgers 3-2 The National Blue Jays scored a walk-off win against the American Dodgers in a Costa Mesa Little League Major Division game May 11.

Whitacre of the Blue Jays came up with a big single with the bases loaded to end the game.

The Dodgers ace Evan Larsen and the Blue Jays ace Noah Prevel started. The Dodgers' Grady Conner, who drew a walk and stole second, scored after a base hit to right center field by Paul King ended up with an errant throw back to the infield.

The Blue Jays answered in the third inning, when Brad O'Heany singled in Whitacre.

The Dodgers' William Leiby scored in the fourth inning after Larsen doubled to score him.
