A number of Foothill League softballers earned all-state honors Thursday as ESPNHS.com released its 2012 Cal-Hi Sports list of softball players in the state.
The 2011-12 season was one of bittersweet opportunity for the College of the Canyons athletic program.
It wasn't long ago that Trinity was happy just to have an athletic program. Those days are long gone. 2012 was a continuation of the rapid athletic ascent the Knights started in 2011. Trinity hasn't quite hit the peak of the mountain, yet - but it proved this year that it hasn't stopped climbing. The football team, in its second season of varsity competition, won its second straight Omega League title - highlighted by All-CIF ...

With freshmen like Saugus' Abbey Weitzeil and Hart's Mik Ranslem and Tamara Santoyo dominating on the girls side, the boys side featured skilled swimmers of its own.
