When the NCAA Division I softball postseason brackets were released Sunday night, a number of former Foothill League veterans - at least one from five of the six Foothill League schools - learned where they would be heading for the regional round of the postseason. Hart, Valencia, Saugus, West Ranch and Canyon high schools all have at least one graduate participating in the tournament - further solidifying softball as one of the ...

The College of the Canyons Cougars baseball team couldn't find an answer for Saddleback College Gauchos pitcher Evan Manarino on Friday.
For the Hart Indians boys tennis team, the cause was rather simple. They ran into the best - at least that's how Hart head coach Chris Mansfield put it after the San Marino Titans swept Hart out of the CIF-Southern Section Division II playoffs with an 18-0 second-round rout. "Best team we've played," Mansfield said. "They should make it all the way to the finals. They're the best team." San Marino (16-0) won the Rio ...
The Valencia Vikings continue on. For the first time since 2008 - when Valencia advanced to the quarterfinals of CIF-Southern Section Division I - the Vikings have made it past the second round. This time around, the Vikings play in Division II, and on Friday afternoon Valencia defeated the Temple City Rams 12-6 at Temple City High School. "The guys are stoked. They were really happy," said Valencia head coach Annie Kellogg. "I still had ...
The Hart Indians effectively ended the Canyon Cowboys' bid for a postseason berth on Thursday, defeating the Cowboys 12-1 to move into sole possession of fourth place. But because of the Indians' sub-.500 record they are ineligible for an at-large bid into the postseason. Only the top three teams in the Foothill League earn automatic bids to the CIF-Southern Section Division I playoffs. Had Canyon (14-14 overall, 3-7 Foothill League) won, the ...
For the second year in a row, Saugus sophomore Abbey Weitzeil put herself in a great position to win two CIF-Southern Section Division I titles after Thursday's CIF prelims at the Riverside Aquatics Complex. Weitzeil was the top qualifier in both the 50-yard freestyle (22.58 seconds) and 100 free (49.22) and will try to repeat as champion in both events. Last season, Weitzeil was the only female swimmer in Division I to ...

With all the other baseball noise in town, lost in the shuffle has been Santa Clarita Christian baseball's unlikely fight for a Heritage League championship. And in typical surprise fashion, the Cardinals erased an early five-run deficit and defeated Faith Baptist 6-5 on Thursday at the William S. Hart PONY Complex to win its first Heritage League title since 2008. "This was one of the biggest moments in (SCCS) baseball," said SCCS head coach ...
The Hart Indians nearly pulled off a remarkable win over the second-place Valencia Vikings with an inexperienced pitcher in the circle.
The Saugus Centurions entered the 2013 Foothill League softball season as league title favorites. On Tuesday afternoon at Canyon High School, the Centurions found themselves in the unfortunate position of simply fighting for a playoff spot in the season's final week. Their prospects are much higher now, though, with one win over Golden Valley separating them from the CIF-Southern Section Division I postseason after Tuesday's 10-1 victory over the Canyon Cowboys. The ...
Everything was set up perfectly for The Master's College baseball to win the Golden State Athletic Conference tournament on Saturday. The Mustangs were the host and had swept their way to the championship series - meaning a loss wouldn't eliminate them, but a win would secure the title. But for four innings on Saturday afternoon at Reese Field, TMC couldn't scratch a run across the plate, hurting themselves with multiple baserunning errors. Then the ...
