The Foothill League's football teams are 9-11. Only one squad is in this week's CIF-Southern Section Northern Division top 10 - Valencia at No. 3. This is officially the worst combined start that the six local teams have ever had. The only season that compares to it is last season, when the six started 10-10. After three weeks, and four for Hart and West Ranch, things are starting to crystallize in the Northern Division. Valencia, ...

The Indians shot a team score of 188, 3-over for the nine-hole team contest. Hart is in search of its third straight Foothill title. Saugus was next-closest at 226, followed by Valencia ...
So far, so average. The Foothill League's football teams are break even after 14 games - 7-7. There have been ups and there have been downs. The Foothill League took a hit Thursday, though, with the 42-20 loss Saugus suffered to Westlake. Coming into the game, the Centurions were ranked No. 4 in the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division. Westlake was No. 5. The game wasn't close. Afterward, Westlake head coach Jim Benkert told his players ...
This is it - the most talented bunch of girls golfers the Foothill League has ever seen. Saugus girls head coach David Stradling said there are 10 girls who could legitimately compete for an individual CIF playoff spot. One coach said Hart has seven girls who could play golf at the university level. And then there's Valencia's Alison Lee - the most accomplished incoming freshman in the 11-year history of Foothill League girls golf. "The ...
She does not have to be here. Nine holes of golf - what could that really do for her? Especially considering that she's golfed some of the United States' best courses and played against the world's No. 1 golfer Lorena Ochoa. But Alison Lee is here - playing golf in the Foothill League. Lee is the most highly touted incoming freshman golfer in Santa Clarita Valley history. She is the seventh-ranked junior golfer in the ...

His Saugus-blue jersey told the story. Soaked with sweat straight through the shoulder pads, Saugus High quarterback Zack Gauthier was gassed Thursday night at Cougar Stadium. Westlake limited his teammates and made the senior carry the load in a 42-20 Centurions' loss. Gauthier, responsible for almost all of Saugus' success on the offensive side of the ball, rushed 27 times for 136 yards. Other than his yardage on the ground, the Warriors dominated the game ...

The Trinity Classical Academy Knights football team could say it expected to beat a highly thought of Desert Christian of Bermunda Dunes and it would be believable. But if any Knight says he expected his team to wallop the Conquerors, the CIF-Southern Section 8-man Division I No. 5 team, 48-0, then they might be fibbing. Yet the Knights not only beat the Conquerors that badly on Friday afternoon at West Ranch High, they humiliated Desert ...
