It's confirmed. Saugus girls volleyball has something distinctly different going on this year. The Centurions are playing with the kind of resilience and confidence that has them doing something not many Foothill League teams have done in the past decade - beating Valencia. The Centurions completed a season sweep by upending the nine-time defending league champion Vikings 3-1 on Tuesday at Saugus High School. And the 25-19, 25-17, 15-25, 25-18 victory leaves Valencia in unfamiliar ...
Trinity football wanted to throw the ball more this time around. Given the circumstances in Saturday's Omega League matchup against Antelope Valley Christian School, it wasn't necessary. The Knights rushed for 267 yards on a combined 29 carries to beat AVC 60-8 on a windy day in Lancaster. "I really wanted to come up here and throw the ball eight out of 10 times because that's a strength we wanted to continue to work on," ...
Valencia High has grabbed headlines with defense all season long. In its Foothill League opener, the unit took a backseat as the Vikings got just what the doctor ordered - a breakout offensive performance. With a 31-14 victory over West Ranch on Friday night at Valencia High School, the Vikings shattered their previous high of 17 point scored this season. Quarterback Sean Murphy offered his explanation. "Our O-line did phenomenal in pass protection," Murphy said. ...
Something rings different about Golden Valley girls volleyball this season. All but one starter returned to the team this year. Many of those players are third-year varsity players. That made Thursday's 3-0 victory over Canyon at Golden Valley High School even sweeter, given the fact that it was the team's first Foothill League win in three years. "We deserved this because we've been working so hard," said Katie Nicholson, one of the Grizzlies' three-year varsity ...

After dropping the league opener to Saugus two weeks ago, the Vikings (11-4, 3-1) handed West Ranch its first loss of the ...

GOLETA - Here they are again. Canyon football is perfect headed into Foothill League play for the second straight year, and this time with a little more authority. Not much went wrong for the Cowboys in a 42-0 win over Dos Pueblos of Goleta on Thursday night at Dos Pueblos High School. The win, which was Canyon's first shutout of the year, means it has outscored opponents 248-55 in the first five games. It's also ...
When it wasn't quite working offensively, Saugus girls volleyball had to lean on its defense.
This season has been full of learning experiences for Golden Valley football. The training is almost complete. After what was perhaps the team's biggest learning experience last week in a 42-0 loss to Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks, the Grizzlies (1-3) have one more chance to right the ship before the opening of Foothill League play on Oct. 14. They'll try to apply what they've learned against San Marino at 7 p.m. today at Canyon ...
About the only College of the Canyons players that didn't see any action on the field on Tuesday were the two goalkeepers.
It's often referred to as the volleyball equivalent of a quarterback in football. The setter position is perhaps equally as important as a quarterback, but it doesn't draw nearly the same attention. Saugus setter Ashley Guthrie is OK with it. In fact, it suits her perfectly. "That's just Ashley," says senior teammate Jaclyn Clark. Call her quiet, humble or even shy. One thing most coaches in the Foothill League agree with is that Guthrie, 16, ...
