Valencia's Robbie Mouselli kept an incredible streak going Friday at Canyon High. He reached base for the ninth consecutive plate appearance with a single in the first inning. Wait, wrong streak. Mouselli lost that one with a ground out in the third inning, but the more important one was Valencia receiving a fourth straight complete game - two of which being his. The senior pitcher bobbed and weaved through trouble late, relying on a steady ...
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.
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.
Proving again that it could be any team's day in the Foothill League, the West Ranch Wildcats knocked off the Saugus Centurions 13-6 on Wednesday.
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.
Canyon Cowboys head baseball coach Adam Schulhofer can't be swayed away from his one-game-at-a-time thinking.
The most unstable coaching jobs in the Santa Clarita Valley over the last couple of years took steps toward stability on Friday.

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.
