Finally, some sort of clarity. In Foothill League boys and girls soccer, a couple of games from Tuesday gave some answers. The first answer came from boys soccer. Canyon defeating Golden Valley 1-0 gave the Cowboys what would be considered a giant five-point lead over the Grizzlies in the race for the Foothill League title. The Cowboys could clinch as early as Tuesday. With Saugus defeating West Ranch 1-0 Tuesday, it gave the Centurions a ...
Last week we focused on boys basketball in the first edition of around the divisions. This week, we take a look at girls basketball. But let's make some quick points on boys basketball.
Hart basketball's Patrick Abbott had possibly one of the ugliest stat lines to ever come out of the Hart High gymnasium.
In Jake Bernards, San Diego State sees untapped potential. That's why the school offered him a scholarship. The West Ranch senior quarterback accepted the scholarship offer from San Diego State Monday. Other schools were looking at him, including Washington and UC Davis, Bernards said, but he said San Diego State was the perfect fit. It wasn't so much Bernards' football numbers that the Aztecs were intrigued by as much as his size. The 6-foot-5-inch, 205-pound ...
Tom Barber's goal is to spread Jesus' word. So he goes on foot and tries to spread that message. He encounters all kinds of people - the mildly interested, those who dismiss Jehovah's Witnesses and those who listen. Then there was the old man. Barber found the old man by going door to door on the outer edge of Canyon Country in 2006. Talk began about the Bible. It soon turned to baseball. And something ...

All this talk of rivalry, and no game to back it up. Until now. Amid head-splitting noise, back-and-forth scoring and a tight finish, Golden Valley boys basketball defeated West Ranch 70-66 at Golden Valley High Tuesday night to establish the rivalry. The schools are natural rivals. Both opened up in 2004. "Oh yeah, definitely," said Golden Valley guard Maverick Ahanmisi on the game marking the true start of the schools' tug-of-war. It was a 3-pointer ...
Who would have predicted it? West Ranch girls basketball coach Randy Smith said his expectations were high, but he would even admit 4-1 in the Foothill League might have been a stretch. But thanks to a forfeit and three hard-fought victories, including Tuesday's 55-30 win against Golden Valley at Golden Valley High, the Wildcats are really 4-1 in the Foothill League. "I've been telling the girls, we're beyond the age of getting a win or ...

We'll give you a breakdown of the top teams, based off of CIF-Southern Section polls, competing in the same divisions as the Foothill League teams. So when it comes to playoff time, you will know who to look out for. We debut this week with a look at boys basketball. There are five Foothill teams that are ...
Hart and Canyon's rivalry was built on history. The two oldest high schools in the Santa Clarita Valley have been doing battle for 40 years. But the players change and the coaches change, meaning there must be another reason for the ferocity of the rivalry. One of those reasons is superiority and in no other sport could that be better displayed than the Hart-Canyon girls basketball rivalry. In Stan Delus' five-year stint as girls basketball ...

The West Ranch girls basketball team pulled off the shock of the Winter Foothill League sports season by defeating Valencia Tuesday night 64-57. It was shocking because the Wildcats, in four seasons, have never beaten a Foothill foe except for Golden Valley.
