A dominant first half was enough for the Centurions to hang on for a 60-53 victory over Grant of Van Nuys Wednesday night in the Hart Holiday Classic at Hart High. It was enough to earn Saugus a berth in the championship game, which will ...

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.

Somewhere along the line, a new school began rearing its purple and gold head - ...

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.
