The Eagles began the year on a rough note as two offensive coaches left the staff as double day practices began. This last minute change did not seem to bother the Eagles as they finished the preseason at 4-1. The Eagles opened league play with two consecutive wins, highlighted by Jeff Zaist's 46 yard field goal as time expired to give the Eagles a 17-14 win over Irvine.
The next two games were not so fortunate for the Eagles. A 20-14 loss to El Toro and an 18-17 setback to Corona del Mar put the Eagles in a must-win situation in the season finale. The Eagles came up big with a 34-21 victory over Newport Harbor.
In the CIF Division V playoffs, SM buried Tustin 44-22, before falling to undefeated Western 25-10.
