All season long, Canyon made its name with big offense and, at times, struggled on defense. In a rivalry game, apparently all bets are off. Israel Cabrera's interception deep in Hart territory with 1:26 to play set up Bonifacio Rojas' 17-yard game-winning field goal as time expired to give Canyon a 17-14 win over Hart on Friday night at College of the Canyons. "As a kid, I've always known the rivalry, Canyon-Hart. I've gone to ...
Sitting alone at a lunch table last spring in the cafeteria at Golden Valley High School, Leon Jacobs couldn't help but ask, "How did I get myself into this?"
The same two teams have stood atop the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division polls for five straight weeks.
It was the first of its kind in the Santa Clarita Valley. Robinson Ranch Golf Club hosted the Pac-12 cross country championships on Saturday. Until then, the finals had never been held in the SCV. The same venue hosted the Pac-12 Preview meet on Sept. 21. Saturday's race was for real though, and the Colorado men and Oregon women were crowned team conference champions when all was said and done. Arizona's Lawi Lalang won his ...
At least one team was able to inject some positivity into a season which has otherwise been a long, difficult one.
This was the match College of the Canyons women's volleyball needed to have. Coming off a loss to the state's top-ranked team last week, the Cougars' relatively painless 3-1 win over Glendale College on Wednesday at COC was just what the doctor ordered. Kelsea Hundtoft had 16 kills to lead COC to set scores of 25-15, 25-15, 20-25 and 25-18. "Kelsea was very smart tonight, not just swinging away but putting it where we wanted ...
Even a team with a defense as good as Saugus girls volleyball couldn't stop all the weapons on West Ranch.
Last Friday was the day of important matchups across the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division.
LOS ANGELES - Matt Barkley and Robert Woods, welcome to the USC record books. To USC's offense, welcome back. A week after being questioned for an uncharacteristic low offensive output in a win over Washington, the Trojans answered emphatically, displaying the type of high-flying, big-play ability that they're expected to play. Barkley and Woods both set records, Barkley's for most career touchdown passes in school and conference history, and Woods' for most receptions in USC ...
Canyons Aquatics Club has become synonymous with the success of Santa Clarita Valley swimming in the past few years.
Saugus has had to deal with heartbreak a couple times already this season. It was time for the Centurions to come out on the other side of it for a change. Coming off a narrow five-game loss to Valencia two days prior, Saugus edged Hart 3-2 with game scores 19-25, 27-25, 21-25, 25-53 and 15-9 on Thursday at Hart High School. "I guess you've got to get one in the bunch," said Saugus head coach ...
In years past, the matchup between Valencia and West Ranch girls tennis at the end of the regular season was played for all the marbles.
With a slightly different lineup, Valencia managed to fend off a pesky Golden Valley team on Wednesday to complete the season sweep.
It was a pressure-packed matchup last time Hart and West Ranch girls volleyball met in their Foothill League openers.
It was an unusually thin field running on an unusual day of the week. But on Monday's Foothill League cross country meet, the second of the year, the results were nothing out of the ordinary at Central Park. Saugus won the boys race and dominated the girls race led by individual victories from senior A.J. Yarnall on the boys side and sophomore Samantha Ortega in girls. The Centurions won both team races for the second ...
All three athletes had their separate reasons for taking the paths they took.
Even some of the coaches and parents in the community didn't realize a state championship existed for the American Youth Soccer Organization.
It wasn't the win itself, it was the reaction that said it all.
Call it a soft opening to the Santa Clarita Valley prep swim season.
Ideally, The Master's College women's basketball team would have liked to head into the NAIA National Tournament with a little bit of momentum.
The Santa Clarita Christian girls soccer team dominated the Omega League from start to finish.
Not even a broken nose could stop Valencia Vikings senior Jake Veiga from playing.
