The week after Hart High graduate Megan Ford was named Wilson California Collegiate Athletic Association Women's Basketball Player of the Week at Cal Poly Pomona, she tore her ACL.
We've reached the midway point of Foothill League boys and girls soccer and boys and girls basketball.
All this talk of rivalry, and no game to back it up.
Who would have predicted it?
Welcome to "Around the Divisions." Every Tuesday, you will become educated about the competition outside the Foothill League. 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 currently ranked in the Southern Section. They play in four different divisions. Here's how the top three teams in each division look.

Golden Valley sophomore Jonathan Kang advanced to the CIF/SCGA Regional State Qualifier (or the Southern California championship) with a 3-over 74 on Tuesday at the CIF-Southern Section Boys Golf Individual Championship.
This "youth" label kept getting in the way of Santa Clarita Christian baseball considering itself a bona fide CIF-championship caliber team this season.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO - Blame was never an option.

There are no more.
The end of the era could have been at the plate with Nick Valaika up in the bottom of the seventh inning and his Hart Indians down six runs to Orange Lutheran in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division I playoffs on Friday.
We've sort of neglected the play of Saugus' Braden and Aden combo because of two other great Foothill League stories this year - Golden Valley sophomore Jonathan Kang's ascension to the top of the Foothill League and Hart's displacing six-time champion West Ranch as league champion.
