Going up against a much taller opponent, the solution for Valencia girls basketball was to do what it intends to do each and every game this season - hustle and rebound.
This year's Valencia girls tennis team never went away easily. Its doubles team of Ashley Keith and Tina Inchalik embodied that attitude all season long. And although the pairing fought until the very last point on Tuesday at the CIF-Southern Section Individual tournament on Tuesday, its run came to an end in the round of 32 at Whittier Narrows Tennis Center. Keith and Inchalik fell behind early in both sets and couldn't recover, eventually losing ...
Once this Hart boys soccer team starts clicking, it appears to be pretty dangerous. Osmar Martinez scored two goals to help lead a second-half surge for Hart, which won 5-1 over Quartz Hill on Tuesday at Hart High School. Playing with its usual short-passing style that emphasizes maintaining possession, the Indians (2-0) came alive offensively and scored four of their five goals in the second half. "We started passing more to feet and then we ...

FRESNO – The seven state titles in a row almost diminish what this year's Saugus girls cross country team did.
If Saugus is the present cross country power, maybe Golden Valley is the future. Golden Valley will be represented by just two runners on Saturday at the CIF State Cross Country Championships at Woodward Park in Fresno. The two Grizzlies headed to state are senior Nolan Del Valle, who will run in the boys division II race, and freshman Bianca Tinoco, who set to make her state debut in girls Division II.

ATASCADERO - The usually prolific Canyon High offense may have finally met its match. On a rainy, slippery grass field at Atascadero High School on Friday night, Canyon could never quite get its footing - literally - as it fell short 30-14 against Atascadero in the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division quarterfinals. The usually pass-heavy Cowboys (8-3-1) struggled to move the ball through the air early and the ground game wasn't enough to match the more ...

It would have been her second straight state title and second consecutive tournament victory after she won the CCCAA Southern California Championship a week earlier. But she hit a rough patch through the final four holes on Tuesday at the par-72 Temecula ...
Saugus cross country head coach Rene Paragas has never been one to mince words. Earlier this season, when he was asked about this year's six-time defending state champion girls cross country team, he described his team as "a bunch of blue collar runners," and said he didn't expect anyone to win any individual races. That was two months ago, and Paragas was being honest. Then entered sophomore Samantha Ortega, who is putting together one of ...
