Canyon boys soccer head coach Khris Savage couldn't wait to get started on the 2010-11 season.
Less than a year ago, Canyon received what appeared to be a tough break. Its starting midfielder Jordan Markovich sprained his ankle during a CIF-Southern Section Division III playoff game and had to sit out the quarterfinal match. Though still ailing, he came back for the semifinal, only to see his team go down. At the time, it seemed devastating, but it turns out, it may have been a good thing for Canyon soccer. The ...

It didn't matter which sport it was. Up until about a decade ago, if you wanted to know who the best team in the Santa Clarita Valley was, the smart money would be on Hart. That was true for football, baseball, basketball and a lot of other sports in which the school participated for a lot of the valley's history. Somewhere along the line, a new school began rearing its purple and gold head - ...

This all began a long time ago. At the start of The Master's College women's basketball season, Zoe Scott was just a soft-spoken freshman who had never played a minute at the collegiate level. Just over a month into the season, she is the team's third-best scorer, and from the outside looking in, has come out of nowhere. Teammate and starting guard Ella Joines suspected something months before the start of the season. "I think ...
