It's shaping up to be one of the biggest weekends in Santa Clarita valley sports history.
Two championships will be determined and three teams will be competing for a spot in a championship game.
FRESNO - For the third straight year, they made the trek - an incredible feat within itself.
FRESNO - The Saugus High School girls cross country team made a proclamation with its feet Saturday morning at Fresno's Woodward Park.
FRESNO - It was the greatest individual and team performance in the five-year history of Golden Valley High School athletics.
One comment from All-National Division, Northern Conference defensive lineman Jonathon Hollins resonated louder than any other about El Camino College.
"There are people who say we haven't played anyone," said the College of the Canyons football sophomore. "Now we're going to find out."
As College of the Canyons head football coach Garett Tujague argued for some of his players to make the All-Western State Conference teams at the post-regular season conference meeting, two players were notably up for discussion.
Tujague's peers thought Jonathon Hollins and Dejuan Yates were the same guy.
Not even Saugus High's second-best score ever at Vista Valencia Golf Course could do it Tuesday.
Not even career-best rounds by four Saugus girls at the course could do it.
Recently, Saugus High girls golf head coach David Stradling went to bed thinking, "Yeah, maybe my team can compete for a Foothill League title."
The Foothill League has implemented a new policy and will limit the amount of contact a coach can have with his or her athletes to 10 hours per week Monday through Saturday.
The policy is a response to the elimination on July 1 of CIF-Southern Section By-Law 313 - the Athletic Association Rule.
Saugus football survived its first-round CIF-Southern Section Northern Division game Friday night at Cougar Stadium, beating Righetti of Santa Maria 29-17.
Ryan Zirbel didn't survive it.
Evolution is probably one of the least likely things associated with The Master's College.
Her words tell you exactly how she felt Monday.
"Today was pretty much the worst day of my life," said Hart High golfer Amanda Corr.
There is no outward show of pain.
No grimace or grievance.
With the nation's No. 5 team's quarterback grimacing and squinting on the grass with under three minutes to play in the second quarter Saturday night at the Rose Bowl at Pasadena, a stampede of one kicked up turf right behind him.
It's as if they couldn't wait any longer.
Thus, whoever was in charge of the sound system at Cougar Stadium Friday night cued Freddie Mercury three seconds too early.
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.
MISSION HILLS - If Foothill League play for Saugus could be broken down into a seven-inning game, it would be a quick start, a lead in the middle and finally close but not enough.
