SANTA CRUZ Pajaro Valley High's Mark Hinojosa was named the Monterey Bay League Pacific Division's Most Valuable Player, it was announced Saturday.

Hinojosa, the leading scorer on the Grizzlies' roster, averaged more than 20 points a game in leading the team to a Central Coast Section tournament appearance for the first time since 2009.

His per-game scoring average increased almost nine points from the previous season. In addition, he broke the school record with a 42-point performance against King City prior to the start of divisional play.

In his final regular-season game, he helped the Grizzlies end an eight-game losing streak to rival Watsonville and prevent the Wildcatz from qualifying for the CCS tournament.

Dan Mooney, who coached Monte Vista Christian to its first championship in league in 10 years, was named co-Coach of the Year along with Alisal's Jose Gil.
