One year later, Tim White wasn't going to let anyone get in his way of a state championship.
Clusters of runners whiz by every couple of minutes. Coaches stand with stopwatches in hand, once in awhile barking out times and instructions. The area surrounding this 400-meter long oval track is crawling with athletes. Some are running, some jumping and others stretching or warming up. This, in general terms, is where Golden Valley freshman Azaria Hill grew up. It's where she and her brother and sister used to hang out while their mom was ...
After facing one of the best high school baseball teams in the nation, Valencia Vikings head coach Jared Snyder spelled it out in no uncertain terms. "They're that good," Snyder said. His Vikings lost 7-1 to the Harvard-Westlake Wolverines, Baseball America's No. 2 ranked team in the country, in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division I playoffs on Thursday at Harvard-Westlake. Snyder continued his thought, "We had a chance in ...

In its first playoff appearance in team history, Albert Einstein Academy baseball didn't get any breaks.
The bats may be coming around just in time for Valencia Vikings baseball. Patient and effective hitting put Valencia in front early and an A.J. Balta grand slam put the game out of reach as the Vikings beat the Westlake Warriors 11-2 on Tuesday in a CIF-Southern Section Division I wild-card matchup at Valencia High School. "We saw the pitches we wanted and we hit them," said Balta, who started for the first time in ...
One break of serve here, another tough bounce there, and that was enough to prevent the Valencia Vikings boys tennis team from moving on in the postseason.
College of the Canyons golf head coach Gary Peterson still vividly remembers when his men's golf team won its first state championship 20 years ago.
It isn't the kind of repeat College of the Canyons softball was looking for. The COC Cougars saw their season come to a close at exactly the same point it did last year, one win short of a state finals appearance. And to add to the coincidence, the season-ending loss came against the same team, Riverside City College, in the California Community College Athletic Association Southern California Super Regional. The Cougars sealed their fate by ...
Everything seemed to be set up perfectly for College of the Canyons baseball. The top of the order delivered some big hits, the starting pitcher held strong and COC appeared to be on its way to a victory to keep its playoff run alive. But it all came crashing down in the ninth inning on Saturday, when Cypress College strung together a three-run rally to win the game 5-4 on a walk-off walk in the ...
Once again, College of the Canyons softball is one win away from making the state finals. COC won a back-and-forth game 6-5 over Riverside, the No. 1 seed in the California Community College Athletic Association Southern California Super Regional on Saturday at Riverside City College. Playing as the No. 4 seed in the regional, the Cougars (34-9-2) scored a run in the top of the eighth inning and hung on for the extra-innings, upset victory. ...
Golden Valley, Saugus and Canyon were the three clear frontrunners throughout the Foothill League track and field season.
No matter how the lineup was arranged, West Ranch Wildcats boys tennis was going to have a tough time.
Valencia boys tennis head coach Annie Kellogg summed it up best by quoting the opposing coach.
The Foothill League collectively went 0-for-3 in the boys volleyball playoffs this season. In the case of the Foothill second-place Hart Indians, it was a 3-0 loss by scores of 25-19, 25-18 and 25-19 to the Newport Harbor Sailors of Newport Beach on Tuesday at Newport Harbor High in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division I playoffs. The loss made Hart's return to the playoffs a brief one after the Indians (17-14-1) missed ...
Only one deal was made on a very quiet NFL trade deadline on Tuesday.
Hart senior Matt Johnson has been the top boys swimmer in the Santa Clarita Valley for the past two years.
As soon as Cassidy Fitzpatrick came to College of the Canyons to try out for the volleyball team, head coach Lisa Hooper knew she brought some intangibles to the table.
For the most part, the headliners of the Santa Clarita Valley did as expected at the Mt. San Antonio College Cross Country Invitational on Saturday.
At the end of three busy weeks of golf, Valencia graduate Max Homa was ready for a rest.
Max Homa appears to be a shoe-in to advance to the second stage of PGA Qualifying School.
A lot of the same cross country athletes who shined at Santa Clarita Valley high schools are doing the same thing with College of the Canyons.
It's been a rough start to the Foothill League season for Saugus Centurions girls volleyball.
The Hart Indians finished the perfect season with a perfect win.

Tuesday's match mattered in multiple ways for the West Ranch Wildcats girls volleyball team.
Can you spot the difference? You'll have to look closely.
Valencia graduate Max Homa doesn't appear to be fazed by the big stage that is the PGA Tour.
This game was for the Heritage League championship. Or at least that's how Trinity Classical Academy football head coach Mike Buchanan put it.
All Foothill League girls volleyball teams are now halfway through the league season.
