Robert Fisher took over as head coach of Golden Valley football under unusual circumstances.
The effects of a solid fall season are still being felt at The Master's College. On the heels of its first 20-win season since 2002, the women's volleyball team saw two members voted to as National Christian College Athletic Association All-Americans. The school also had four soccer players make All-American teams - two men players and two women players - in last week's announcement, pushing the total number of honorees to six. Middle blocker Tori ...
Golden Valley girls basketball isn't just winning games, it's dominating them.
The opportunities were piling up and the Hart boys soccer team dominated the midfield most of the game.
For a moment, the peaceful ambience at TPC Valencia is broken. The deep sounds of stereo bass drone through the air blaring '90s rock or modern hip-hop depending on the day. All the noise is coming from the custom-made golf cart of professional golfer Jason Gore. Lately, he's been spending a lot of time cruising around Stevenson Ranch in the golf cart, which is decked out with a built-in iPad that blasts music through a ...
In the short run, the Foothill League doesn't come out smelling like roses. When it comes to the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division playoffs, the Marmonte League rules all other leagues. Or at least it has in recent years. The past four Northern Division finals (including this year) have involved two Marmonte teams. Meanwhile, the Foothill is experiencing more parity than it has ever seen since becoming an all-Santa Clarita Valley league. That was evidenced by ...

The early part of basketball season can often be used for teams to learn about themselves and how to deal with adverse situations.
At least one thing is clear about this year's Valencia boys basketball team.
What began less than 11 months ago might finally be paying off. At that point, The Master's College men's basketball team was going through what head coach Chuck Martin described as the worst stretch of his coaching career. The team had lost seven straight games and was sitting near the bottom of the Golden State Athletic Conference standings. Rather than packing it in and calling it a lost season, Martin seized the opportunity to learn ...
Soccer season ended earlier than The Master's College may have liked for both the men's and women's teams, which didn't make it to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics tournaments.
Valencia boys soccer isn't young this year. "It's new," said head coach Tony Scalercio, explaining that there are plenty of juniors and seniors, but very few have played at the varsity level before. Fittingly, all the scoring was done by two of those returning players in Friday night's season opener. Senior Michael Fischbach scored in the first half and Zach Klindworth added another couple of goals in the second as the Vikings beat Stockdale of ...
The shooting ability is there and so is the experience. Valencia girls basketball is emphasizing defense more than anything else, though. So far, so good as the Vikings blew out Palmdale 67-20 on Thursday in the second day of the Valencia High Five Classic at Valencia High School. Palmdale scored just five points after halftime due to constant, aggressive pressure from Valencia (3-0). "We just want to focus on defense," said Valencia junior Kalia Summerlin. ...
The Trinity Classical Academy Knights already had sizeable challenge in front of them in facing a CIF-Southern Section 8-man power on Friday.
Two former Saugus High stars established themselves as College of the Canyons' next cross country headliners on Friday.
Two straight shootout wins by Santa Clarita Valley football teams over a state power in a six-day span was a bit too much to ask on Thursday at Valencia High.
No one can say the Foothill League isn't getting respect, at least from the CIF pollsters.
The Valencia Vikings varsity girls tennis team won the Division II championships at the prestigious 2013 California Tennis Classic in Clovis during the weekend, beating Arroyo Grande 7-5 in set tiebreaker after the teams played to 3-3 tie in the final.
When Max Homa rolled in his 6-foot putt to clinch a foursome match victory over Britian/Ireland in the 2013 Walker Cup on Sunday, it was everything he could have dreamed.
