The race for a Foothill League title in boys swimming will likely play out the same way it has for the last 16 years - with Hart High finishing on top.
In all likelihood the 2012 Foothill League girls swim season will produce quite the race. It's just unlikely to be for first place.

Abbey Weitzeil is fast. Really fast. And she has quickly become the talk of the Foothill League. The 15-year old Saugus freshman swimmer began her high school swim career this season, and even before she makes her first league appearance for the Centurions, she'll be anything but a secret weapon. Weitzeil qualified for the 2012 Olympic Team Trials in the 100-meter freestyle after swimming in 57.14 seconds at the junior national championships. She'll travel to ...

The Hart varsity softball team wanted to win its own Hart varsity softball tournament after entering the final day with a semifinal matchup against Camarillo High. But more importantly, the Indians wanted to continue to get playing experience for a pitching staff with few innings under its belt. So, despite 7-3 losses in both the semifinal to Camarillo High and the third-place game to El Camino Real of Woodland Hills, the Indians are happy to ...
Down by a run, and unable to get much going all day against Chaminade High pitcher Taylor Stewart, West Ranch softball coach Bob Shults figured Kylie Sorenson might decide to lay down a bunt in front of the third baseman in the semifinal game of the Hart softball tournament at Central Park on Saturday.
