National signing day marks an aloha of sorts as many high school and junior college athletes are making their farewells and hellos official.
Lost in the shuffle of one wild finish and a Foothill League championship being crowned Tuesday night was another wild finish that involved another team that could share that crown.
It's been a long time since 1983. Saugus High boys basketball head coach Jeff Hallman was a personnel supervisor at Six Flags Magic Mountain and Michael Cassio wasn't even born yet. But after a controversial call and two of the clutchest free throws by Cassio with time expired, the Centurions are closer to their first league title since Duran Duran was fashionable. Saugus defeated Canyon at the Cowboys' Brickhouse 54-53 Tuesday, maintaining a first place ...
It was five years ago that a parent approached Hart High co-athletic director Linda Peckham about taking stats for the varsity girls soccer team. Peckham was surprised.
Another Hart High shortstop is moving on to play baseball at the next level. Senior Trevor Matern recently accepted a baseball scholarship and will be playing at the University of San Francisco.
Don't sleep on Canyon boys basketball. Sure, the Cowboys have their roughest stretch of the Foothill League season next week, but a team that has won only four of its last 11 games might be gaining steam. Sound crazy? Maybe, but a 70-56 victory over Hart Friday at their Brickhouse was an indicator of the Cowboys' potential. The most striking part of Canyon's victory was the fact that others stepped up rather than just the ...
There has been a war brewing between local public and out-of-area private high schools over football and suspected recruiting since December.

For three decades, Hart football has been identified by one family - the Herringtons - Mike, Rick and Dean.
Valencia senior Terrez Scott has waited years for any shot, but this one was significant. With seconds left at Hart High and the score tied between the Vikings and Indians, Scott swung the ball to his right, then received it back at the top of the key. A point guard's first instinct is pass and it crossed Scott's mind, but as the urgency elevated, so did he. Dribbling inside the paint, Scott threw up a ...
The heat started to build in mid-March. By that point, College of the Canyons baseball was on its way to another season spent at home in the postseason. Something clicked, though. Head coach Chris Cota said it was his offense that turned around, especially after players were only allowed to hit off a tee in practice for a while. Nevertheless, the Cougars streaked into the postseason, going 19-6 in the final 25 games, finishing second ...
The target is big and it's not red anymore, it's purple. It's the target Valencia boys basketball has on its back after a 68-60 victory over Saugus Friday night. Now, all the Vikings have to do is win their final four games and they will be crowned Foothill League champions. All they have to do is a terrible phrase, though. Ask the 2005-06 Vikings. All they had to do was win one of their final ...
Deserving as he may be, Delano Howell's selection as CIF-Southern Section Northern Division Offensive Player of the Year may be a surprise to some.
It didn't need to be said because the faces of the Golden Valley boys basketball players said it all.

This was the first one.

The transition from Nick Jones' sophomore to junior year was a tough one.
PASADENA – Granted, it wasn't College of the Canyons football's stiffest competition and the Cougars have their two-quarterback system. But Jake Dashnaw certainly played like he wants to be the Cougars' only starting quarterback on Saturday night.
LAKE BALBOA - With the Hart Indians on the 2-yard line late in the fourth quarter, the receivers started giving running back Connor Wingenroth a hard time.
Golden Valley girls golf really is the front-runner for the Foothill League title.
The biggest change in this week's CIF-Southern section Northern Division poll was a result of West Ranch's 20-9 loss to Thousand Oaks.
