The ultimate goal for College of the Canyons' six athletic teams competing this fall - not including football - is a Western State Conference championship.
Is it too early to declare a CIF-Southern Section Northern Division champion? People aren't going to like that statement, but the truth is St. Bonaventure is good - very good. And close behind is Moorpark. Both Ventura County teams scored victories against top-ranked teams in the state last Friday. Sure, the postseason is so far in the future that some would argue it's futile to even talk about what these teams are doing, but we ...

At a party in the Santa Clarita Valley and at a college some 3,000 miles plus away, two discussions mirrored each other.
Saugus wide receiver/defensive back Manny Padron is OK with opening up. It's almost like he has to.

One of the major goals within the Saugus football program is to decrease the amount of turnover from the freshman team.
Finality arrived when the pickup truck pulled away. Steve Borden, known as the wrestler "Sting," and his son Steven drove off to their new home in Texas. A couple of Steven's friends saw him off. They helped him pack his final bags and tossed them onto the truck bed. Had Steven stayed, he surely would have been a major factor for the defending CIF-Southern Section Division I 8-Man champions.

And though the gauntlet part of the schedule is ahead, four wins in a week to start the season is doing a world of confidence-building for a young Centurions team. "They've experienced more success than what they've expected," said first-year head coach Ken Jeffris. "They're starting to believe in themselves. Winning will ...
