An announcement is expected by the end of the week on the hiring of boys and girls basketball coaches at Golden Valley High.
The first step to recovery for Valencia softball Tuesday was a perfect blowout. After suffering losses to Saugus and Canyon last week, the Vikings defeated Golden Valley (6-15, 0-7) on the Grizzlies' home turf 15-0 as freshman pitcher Carly Mortensen tossed a five-inning perfect game, striking out 11 batters. "Things happen for a reason," said Valencia head coach Donna Lee. "We hit a bump in the road. We have to turn the page. We can't ...
According to various media reports, Hart High graduate and former The Master's College baseball player Jerry Owens has signed with the Seattle Mariners. On May 1, the Chicago White Sox outrighted Owens to Triple-A Charlotte to make room for the recently signed Scott Podsednik.
For the first time in school history, West Ranch High has a No. 1-ranked team. The Wildcats baseball team was ranked No. 1 in the poll released Monday for CIF-Southern Section Division I.
Canyon football held its first-ever Hall of Fame ceremony Saturday night, enshrining a heavy-hitting class. Six-time CIF championship coach at Canyon Harry Welch, former quarterback Nate Longshore and former lineman Brent Parkinson were all honored at a home in Sand Canyon Saturday night.
It was almost as if Lauren Rose and Ashley Imperial were cans of lima beans, positioned deep in the cupboard behind the cookies.
West Ranch golfer Collin Wheeler matched his score from two years ago to again claim the Newhall Land Cup (the two-day tournament coinciding with the last two Foothill League matches) and his Wildcats also clinched the Foothill League title Wednesday at TPC Valencia.
Canyon High graduate Andrew Schantz signed a rookie free agent contract Tuesday with the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers.
It appears that Canyon graduate Nate Longshore does have a destination. According to various media reports, including one from the San Francisco Chronicle, the former Cal quarterback will try out for the Miami Dolphins at their rookie training camp. A message to Longshore was not returned, but a family source confirmed that he is flying to Miami today. Longshore played in all 13 games in 2008 for Cal, throwing for 1,051 yards with 10 touchdowns ...
Collin Wheeler may have just golfed himself into the CIF playoffs. What he definitely did was put his West Ranch team in a better position. The 2007 Newhall Land Cup champion shot a co-medalist round of 3-under 69, with Valencia's Jonathan Chang, at TPC Valencia Tuesday. The Wildcats as a team posted a 375, 10 strokes better than Valencia, which it came into the Newhall Land Cup, the Foothill League's fifth match, tied with for ...
The thought of catching passes from a possible future hall of famer in Kurt Warner and alongside two of the NFL's top receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin has 2005 Valencia High graduate Shane Morales chomping at the bit. Morales signed a free agent deal with the defending NFC champion Arizona Cardinals Sunday night and will report to rookie training camp Thursday.
It's a brand new ball game. Valencia put some emphasis on its Foothill League golf win, out-distancing West Ranch 364-378. The victory broke West Ranch's nine-match Foothill League winning streak and unofficially put the Vikings into a tie for first place. "I was so proud of my team," said Valencia golfer Max Homa, who shot a medalist performance of 5-under 66 at Robinson Ranch Thursday. "We walked out, the five us, I was carrying (teammate) ...
In nearly every direction, Valencia pitcher Carly Mortensen had obstacles around her. Large shadows from the past hovering over her. A giant in the circle on the other side. And base runners surrounding her in the bottom of the seventh inning. The shadows of past Valencia pitching greats, the giant - Hart's Destiny Rodino - and the base runners couldn't get to her though as the freshman pitcher led Valencia to a 4-2 win over ...
Author Michael D'Antonio said Walter O'Malley might have been a driving force in the growth and identity of the city of Los Angeles.
Pollsters believe Hart is a good softball team. They also feel that defending CIF-Southern Section Division I champion Valencia is solid. But they also seem to think that Norco's a little bit better. In the latest Division I poll, Norco leapfrogged Hart for the No. 1 ranking, as Mater Dei tumbled to No.4. That put Hart and Valencia at Nos. 2 and 3 respectively. Like Hart and Valencia, Norco's a hefty name in the Southern ...
It's sort of a no-brainer for West Ranch boys basketball player Kevin Harris.
LYNWOOD - Why has Canyon girls basketball been the best winter sports team in the Santa Clarita Valley over the last four years?
DANA POINT - In so many cases, a team is a reflection of its leaders.
No Santa Clarita Valley winter sports team can say what Canyon girls basketball can.
This Valencia Vikings girls basketball game had so much going for it.
The Valencia Vikings boys soccer team was defeated by the Valencia Vikings - or in a more clearer terms, the Temescal Canyon soccer team playing Valencia style soccer.
Nothing was going right.
This one was a little more emotional than most postgame goodbyes.
