Santa Clarita Christian football has quietly been one of the most successful programs in the Santa Clarita Valley over the course of the decade.
Chuck Lyon, College of the Canyons' athletic director, has seen his fair share of good football teams during his 29 years as a coach.
In 2004, it was out with old and in with the new. Valencia football toppled Goliath that season, ending Hart's 65-game Foothill League winning streak with a 29-10 victory on Oct. 29. Two news schools came on the scene in Golden Valley and West Ranch. The Grizzlies started as a ninth and 10th grade and West Ranch just had freshmen. J.J. Arrington starred at Cal while his former teammates at COC won a National Championship. ...
By 2000, a population boom in the Santa Clarita Valley had more than caught up with the William S. Hart Union High School District.

The Canyon girls soccer team didn't win or lose, but left the field frustrated after a 1-1 draw with Lancaster at Canyon High on Tuesday.
Trailing with a minute left, Valencia turned once again to Lonnie Jackson. But on a rare off-night for the junior swingman, who was unable to connect on two game-tying 3-pointers in the final 30 seconds, and after a first half riddled with mistakes, Lancaster notched a 61-58 win Saturday at Canyon High in the Canyon Classic. The Vikings (5-2) have relied heavily on the talented Jackson in their young season, and he has proven to ...
As Canyon forward Wesley Bartole threw down a thunderous fast-break dunk to put his team up by 18 early in the fourth quarter, Paraclete appeared deflated.
Canyon boys basketball is showing little hospitality in its own Canyon Classic. The Cowboys won their third straight game in as many nights with a 59-52 victory over a much more challenging Lancaster team at Canyon High. "Our focus has been on defense and this was a good test for us," said Cowboys head coach Chad Phillips. "Lancaster is a very good team and they were a great test." Canyon guards Coley Apsay and Kris ...
