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 ...
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." Bauer pitched a one-hit shutout April 18 in a 13-0 victory for his UCLA Bruins over Washington. The ...
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.
Andy Campbell understands that building the Golden Valley football program is a large undertaking.
Two girls golfers - a sophomore and a junior - completely changed the Foothill League's outlook for 2013.
It's the rivalry that isn't, according to the girls.
It wasn't even close - an 18-0 victory for the Saugus girls tennis team on Tuesday at Saugus High over the Alemany Warriors. 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 ...
