After suffering their first loss of the season, to CIF-SS Division 1, 12th ranked Brea Olinda, the Patriots bounced back to win the fifth place game at the Marina Tournament, 49-47, over Edison High.

Sophia Chan hit a baseline runner in the final minute for the game winner. Austyn Masuno led the Patriots with 22 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks. Chan had nine points and Angie Choi had six points and six steals.

The Cypress High football team had to go into a rebuild after the 2014 season. Last year, the Centurions got back into the playoffs, earning an at-large berth after finishing fourth in the Empire League. But the Centurions could be on the verge of challenging for a league title and becoming a threat in the CIF playoffs.
