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 ...

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.

Trevor Bauer's almost unbelievable ascension continues. The Hart High graduate, who earned enough credits to leave the school early and enroll at UCLA in January, has pitched his way to Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week honors. "Definitely a great honor," Bauer said. "In a sense I don't deserve it. It doesn't seem like I'm worthy."

The sixth match of the Foothill League tennis season may have proved to be the biggest one for both Canyon and Hart Thurs-day afternoon.
Close makes Valencia golfer Max Homa sick. But it's the best word choice that applies to his Vikings in respect to Foothill League play. Valencia shot a team score of 391 Tuesday at Valencia Country club, one stroke off match No. 3 winner West Ranch. At the end of the Foothill golf season, each team gets to throw out its worst score. West Ranch has a 26-stroke lead over the Vikings. But Valencia is one ...
Hart High graduate and former College of the Canyons golfer Joe Greiner is on the cusp of something big.
When one gripe doesn't carry much weight, Ed turns to another. And another. And another. He mentions personality clashes with his son's coach, and complains about odd lineups. None of his claims violates the rules. Sifting through the muck of gripes, there is one bonafide reason for this parent's undying anger. Quite simply, Ed's son didn't play as much as his dad hoped he would during the high school student's senior year. Ed's son was ...

Maybe you've wondered what it's like. Growing up and playing baseball in the backyard, in the street or on a diamond.
It's too early to call anything a changing of the guard, but West Ranch baseball defeating Valencia 7-1 at home Wednesday definitely carries some kind of weight.
Valencia senior golfer Alex Macaluso didn't have to battle as hard on the golf course Tuesday as much as he had to battle off the course coming up with the right word to describe the gap between his team and Foothill League-leading West Ranch.
Hart High graduate and NFL quarterback Matt Moore and local protein water company Spartos, a company he is a partner in, are collaborating with Providence Blood Donor Center on Saturday for a blood drive in Valencia.
For all that Canyon senior forward Alia McCoy had accomplished in her stellar basketball career, there was one thing she couldn't say.

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.
