For Canyon High School, most of its athletic success this past year came in just a handful of sports.
It was a tennis season seemingly devoid of a dominant singles player in the Foothill League.
It was impressive enough to go undefeated in Foothill League competition, but to do it against teams stocked with talent was remarkable.
Some teams view it as a glorified practice. Others see it as an opportunity to learn how to win. Either way, the first day of the 2011 Saugus Under the Lights Passing Tournament on Friday was a chance for all six Foothill League football teams to get a glimpse of their skill positions against some of the best talent in the area.

The apt result - nearly every player on the team was honored in the 2011 All-Foothill League boys tennis teams. Leading the way on the all-league singles team is junior J.R.
