Competing in Foothill League tennis at the varsity level is no picnic. Like any other sport, it requires countless hours of practice and repetition. It takes both physical skill and mental toughness.

And yet, at age 17 and with roughly five years of experience at the sport, Mofsowitz doesn't consider himself ...

This is starting to look routine for Canyon baseball. Nothing flashy, grind-it-out pitching, situational hitting and alert baserunning.

The league's top two teams for the regular season, Valencia and West Ranch, make up the majority of the field which will compete in today's final rounds. Last year's singles champion, Valencia's ...
One goal down, two to go. Coming into the season, Valencia boys volleyball wanted to win the Foothill League first and foremost. It did that by finishing off league second-place Hart 3-0 on Tuesday at Hart High School, clinching an outright League title. With scores of 25-20, 25-20 and 25-23, the Vikings (18-7, 9-0) have now won at least a share of 11 straight titles and have stretched their state-record league win streak to 101 ...
Scott Kerrigan wasn't supposed to be sitting in the dugout the whole season. Not this season. Not his senior year. Not the year he was supposed to impress scouts and light up radar guns and prove why he is Saugus' undisputed ace. But sometimes that's how baseball is. Sometimes that's how life is. The Saugus pitcher knows that more than anyone now, given the blow he was dealt just weeks before the start of this ...
