Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and now Johnny MacArthur. The Hart High senior joined elite company Thursday, winning the CIF-SCGA Southern Regional High School Championship at the SCGA Golf Course in Murrieta Valley. MacArthur shot a 5-under 67 and won the tournament in the second round of a playoff. The Foothill League Most Valuable Player was the only local out of three to advance to the CIF-CGA State High School Golf Championship on Tuesday. Valencia's Max ...
With the amount of success the Saugus High School girls cross country team has enjoyed over the last couple of years (two straight state titles), translating into further success with runners on the track and field team, the school's athletic identity has been its running program.
If you look back at the last two deep playoff runs for Hart baseball, the reason for much of the success has been the team's pitching. In 1999, Hart had a dominant pair of pitchers in Jamie Shields and Justin Wiley that led the Indians to the CIF-Southern Section Division II title.
DESERT HOT SPRINGS - There is a ton of motivation going forward for three local prep golfers after Monday's CIF-Southern Section Individual Final at Mission Lakes Country Club in Desert Hot Springs. One consistently stellar golfer tied for first place, but couldn't take the title in a playoff.
Sure it's a dated motto, but in Hart softball's case, it was apropos Friday. The old "survive and advance" credo from last season's run to the CIF-Southern Section Division I title game. The Indians survived Friday against 20-win Pacifica of Oxnard in the first round of the Division I softball playoffs with a 6-2 victory at home. Now they advance to play the winner of the Mater Dei-Royal game. Hart (24-4) survived despite playing most ...
For whichever high school Christian Lopes was going to, he was supposed to make an instant impact.
On Monday afternoon, I was looking for my transcript from Cal State Northridge - my alma mater.

Hart baseball's biggest accomplishment in 2008 thus far is the team being in first place in the ultra-competitive Foothill League - to some.
There were three National Football League prospects with local ties going into this past weekend's NFL Draft.
At this point, Saugus High graduate and Cal State Northridge golfer Nick Delio has to acknowledge that his future is bright.
It's pretty difficult to gauge how good of an athlete you truly are. Your parents might tell you one thing, your coaches another thing. One local training facility, in partnership with Nike, will tell you how good of an athlete you truly are. On Saturday morning, Velocity Sports Performance - a brand new sports training center located on 25461 Rye Canyon Road in Santa Clarita - will host the Nike SPARQ Training 2008 My Better ...
Motivation comes in many forms. For some, it's words. For others, it's the past. Motivated to become champions, the West Ranch boys golf team and Hart High's Johnny MacArthur became just that Wednesday at TPC Valencia. West Ranch won its sixth league match out of six by shooting a team score of 385 at Wednesday's Foothill League Final/Newhall Land Cup. The Wildcats boys golf team is now the first Foothill League champion of any sport ...
It was a missed putt that ultimately cost Hart High golfer Johnny MacArthur the Foothill League Most Valuable Player in 2007.
No surprise and surprise.
One of the best compliments one could pay a golfer is calling their game "boring."
Last season, West Ranch won its fifth straight Foothill League championship.
The way coaches throw around the label "leader" makes it lose its impact.
Quite simply, it was Kevin Harris' night in the smaller picture.

Regardless of how West Ranch Wildcats baseball got the win, the important thing is it got the win. The Wildcats are now on the board in Foothill League play after a 10-1 win over the Golden Valley Grizzlies on Wednesday at Golden Valley High. "It's a win and we needed to have one," said West Ranch head coach Casey Burrill. "If we want to find ourselves at the end of the season competing for a ...
There's a reason why many people thought going into Foothill League baseball play that the Valencia Vikings were the team to beat.
West Ranch senior guard and 2013 Foothill League Boys Basketball Player of the Year Kevin Harris committed this week to play basketball for the University of California, San Diego. Harris averaged 19 points per game in Foothill League play leading the Wildcats to their first-ever outright league title. He was also an All-Foothill League and The Signal All-Santa Clarita Valley first-teamer as a junior. Harris, a 4.08 GPA student, had other interest, according to West ...
Lost in a 15-1 pounding of the Golden Valley Grizzlies on Friday at Saugus High School was the pitching of Saugus Centurions pitcher Chris Danielson.
It was said on Wednesday that the story in Canyon's Foothill League opening win against West Ranch was the Cowboys' offense.
The Signal's fourth annual SCV Hoops Finale is now days away and since the announcement of the game earlier in the week, an addition to the game has been made and players have given their commitments to play.
All the signs were there.
