West Ranch sophomore golfer J.J. Holen's season ended Thursday at the CIF/SCGA Tournament at Temecula's SCGA Members Club.
They run the same event. They're all friends off the track. But Saugus' Anne Randall, Kaylin Mahoney, Stephanie Bulder and Karis Frankian are in different positions heading into the CIF State Track and Field Championships at Buchanan High School in Clovis. And together, they're a distance-running dynamo that is staking new ground for the tradition-rich Centurions. At last week's CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet, all four runners qualified for the state finals in the 3,200-meter run, ...
One is a dynamic pitcher. One is a powerful hitter. Both were Foothill League champions – and now, Valencia's Carly Mortensen and Hart's Jessica Shults are co-Foothill League Players of the Year as voted by the coaches. Shults, a senior catcher, led the Indians by hitting .448 this season with 10 home runs and 27 RBIs. She saved her best for the postseason, hitting the game-winning home run in a 1-0 victory over Trabuco Hills ...
West Ranch golfer J.J. Holen spent an unexpected night at Temecula's Holiday Inn. And he is thankful for the opportunity.

NORCO – It isn't often that a core of talent comes along like the group Hart softball featured in 2009.
NORCO – Both Hart and Norco softball expected a battle. History told them so, as the two teams prepared to play each other late in the postseason for the fourth straight year. Unfortunately for Hart, the Indians came up short for the second season in a row and were denied their fourth trip to the CIF-Southern Section Division I finals, falling 2-0 to dominant senior starter Teagan Gerhart and the Cougars Tuesday in the Division ...
Norco head softball coach Rick Robinson puts it this way. His team pencils Hart into its schedule. It just doesn't know exactly when the game will take place. For the past three seasons, the two schools have met in the CIF-Southern Section Division I softball playoffs. They meet again when the Indians (27-4) travel to Norco (30-2) to play the Cougars today at Norco High at 3:15 p.m. in the semifinals. Norco ended Hart's season ...

All four girls finished the race under the ...
