Some might argue that this is a football town. Others might say baseball, softball or even volleyball. But golf has entered the equation lately. With the success over the last five years of junior golfers and one professional, Jason Gore, and the abundance of courses in the area, golf is thriving. Identifying that, TPC Valencia, just five years old, is seeking to increase its membership. The country club opened up its course Monday to over ...

The prep basketball season is well past us now, yet stories of selflessness are timeless. The amount of time Valencia High basketball player John Otavka will remember his senior season is the rest of his life. Otavka can tell people he was good enough to be selected to the Southern California Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association (SCIBA) Division II-AA first team for his contributions during the 2007-08 season. He was the only boys basketball player from ...
Valencia's Robbie Mouselli kept an incredible streak going Friday at Canyon High. He reached base for the ninth consecutive plate appearance with a single in the first inning. Wait, wrong streak. Mouselli lost that one with a ground out in the third inning, but the more important one was Valencia receiving a fourth straight complete game - two of which being his. The senior pitcher bobbed and weaved through trouble late, relying on a steady ...
For a good hour and a half, the best question to ask at Valencia High's baseball field Wednesday afternoon was what would come first - the anticipated rain or any energy from either side?
The West Ranch boys golf team continued to distance itself from the pack Tuesday. With the Wildcats latest first place finish at Robinson Ranch's par-71 Mountain Course, the young squad has continued to assert itself as the best team in the Foothill League. So after three straight first-place finishes, it's over - right? "The way I look at it, it's not over until it's over," said West Ranch head coach Jeff Holen. "I tell my ...
LOS ANGELES - With 25 reporters surrounding him in the Los Angeles Dodgers' dugout Monday morning, manager Joe Torre proved to be the main attraction at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day.
The fastball that Robert Stock threw in 2005 was accompanied with a sound. At 95 miles per hour, it came with the hiss of a snake. At the time, the Agoura High junior was one of, if not the most talked about prep players in the country. He wasn't exactly the kind of pitcher a 14-year-old would want to see in his first high school at bat. Yet Zachary Vincej, who already pulled off the ...
Young Major League Baseball is now the selling point for the National Pastime. It's on the cover of Sports Illustrated's 2008 baseball preview. It's a theme down the Interstate 5 at Chavez Ravine. And it's represented by the amount of success young players with ties to the Santa Clarita Valley have had in spring training. A total of six locals, five under the age of 27, competed on big league clubs at some point this ...

Former Saugus basketball head coaches Jeff Hallman and Eric Olsson were linked in the past for so many reasons.
Hindsight is said to be 20/20. Looking back, maybe it was wrong to tout the Saugus High baseball team as the team to beat in 2008.
The tag of area's best team just changed like a spring sale. Hart baseball went into Saugus High Friday and pounded the highly-touted Centurions 12-1 and now wears the label. Saugus, ranked No. 18 in the state coming into the season, and Hart, widely considered one of Southern California's best teams, were supposed to play a low-scoring teeter-totter battle, considering the arms on the mound. What happened was a complete dismantling of the Centurions, thanks ...
