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 ...
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.

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, ...
The Master's College cross country teams completed another successful season with top-15 finishes at the NAIA Cross Country National Championships on Saturday in Lawrence, Kan. The women's team, coming into the meet ranked seventh nationally, took 14th overall, and the 15th-ranked men finished 15th in the 32-team fields. "All in all a great day for both teams, both squads," said Mustangs head coach Zach Schroeder. "We're really happy with how we ran." ...

SANTA CLARITA - Golden Valley High sophomore Elisa Pierre is a myth destroyer.
It was the hardest thing in his football career to do - watch.
Imagine how the Saugus Centurions football team felt?
It's the old "the game was a lot closer than what the score indicated."
Hart High junior quarterback Brady White received a scholarship offer from Colorado State on Friday.
Golden Valley - the school that had little overall success in girls golf prior to last season - now has it's poster child for success.
Canyon head football coach Rich Gutierrez met with a pastor friend of his on Monday at Starbucks.
Put this one up with all the other Canyon-Hart epics.
All Santa Clarita Christian football can do now is hope.
