With what Valencia baseball has and what Hart has this season, it was a must that the Vikings play more strategic, fundamental baseball to defeat the Indians.
Valencia pitcher Josh Corrales took the mound in the seventh inning on his home field Wednesday against West Ranch showing no sign of fatigue.
There was supposed to be no suspense as to who would come out victorious Tuesday at Valencia Country Club in the second Foothill League boys golf match.
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 ...
Thursday's forecast called for a slight wind, warm weather and a West Ranch boys golf victory in the Foothill League opener.
It's a story reminiscent of the fall. A team led by freshmen that everybody else is talking about. Same story, one less freshman and different school. In the fall, Hart girls golf was unanimously predicted to be the best team in the Foothill League because of the abilities of three freshmen. Hart went on to win the league title easily. The West Ranch boys hope it's an omen. With less standout golfers in the league ...
With Valencia boys tennis having already clinched a win in the Foothill League opener against West Ranch Tuesday, both teams lined up along the final court on the West Ranch campus for the final set. They stood to watch a seesaw battle between the Wildcats doubles team of Jason Oh and Patrick Fuentes and Valencia's Alex Pick and Matt Cheng.
Denis Watson's victory of the AT&T Champions Classic Sunday was special. All of his wins are special. From where he came - injury and misery - to where he is now is remarkable. He feels great right now. But for decades, his golf career was marred by unfortunate circumstances. Watson was a rising star on the PGA TOUR, hitting his prime in 1984. The native of Zimbabwe won three events that year. But in 1985, ...
On Saturday night, Denis Watson was passed the phone from his wife Susan. On the other end was his 86-year-old mother-in-law Cleta Glenn who told him if he shot 68 Sunday in the final round of the AT&T Champions Classic at the par-72 Valencia Country Club he could place in the top 10. "Well if I shoot 8-under I could win the golf tournament," Watson then told Susan. Watson was almost right. After a final ...
There's always that question for certain golfers on the Champions Tour of whether or not they can pull double-duty and also compete on the PGA Tour.
Just talking about his 45-year-old brother Bart, Uncle Bart as he called him, made the whites of Brad Bryant's eyes turn pink.
Having been off the Valencia Country Club course for some 20 minutes, Brad Bryant hung around the media room for a quick minute, looked at the AT&T Champions Classic leaderboard on a gray Saturday afternoon and broke into a smile.
His laugh is infectious. You can tell he smokes from it. It's scratchy. But it's also like a wave the way it starts slow, reaches a peak, then comes crashing down. But it's a smile-inducer. Fuzzy Zoeller, a Champions Tour fan-favorite, is that for his humor. He says it's in the genes. Zoeller's not a practical joker - no. The 56-year-old is armed with jokes, though, on command. "Clean or dirty?" he asks. "The latest ...
West Ranch outfielder Tony Slauson verbally committed to Cal State Northridge earlier this month, according to Wildcats head coach Casey Burrill.
With so many strong teams in the field, not much was expected from the Foothill League's three teams in the CIF-Northern Team Divisional at Soule Park Golf Club in Ojai.
Something didn't feel quite right about the Hart Indians being up six runs on the West Ranch Wildcats on Friday at West Ranch High.
The Foothill League boys tennis prelims is usually an event of little surprise.
This Foothill League continues to be the wackiest in one respect and the most competitive in another respect in recent memory.
It was the bottom of the seventh inning.
There's hope at Golden Valley.
West Ranch boys golfer Joey Downey would have really had to have a blow-up round on Wednesday at TPC Valencia in the sixth and final Foothill League match to not win the league's Most Valuable Player.
Decisions, decisions, decisions and decisions.
The Hart Indians had to do something to stop the oncoming locomotive that is Valencia Vikings boys tennis.
Five years, 133 games, 486 runs.
A sign of a good team is its ability to withstand adversity.
After watching Valencia's top starting pitcher J.D. Busfield pitch the Vikings back into a share of first place in the Foothill League standings on Wednesday, it was time for West Ranch's ace to respond.
Hart and Valencia boys tennis both took care of business on Thursday.
