For two-time defending CIF-Southern Section Division I softball champion Valencia, great pitching has always been a constant.
Pollsters believe Hart is a good softball team. They also feel that defending CIF-Southern Section Division I champion Valencia is solid. But they also seem to think that Norco's a little bit better.

It wasn't even close - an 18-0 victory for the Saugus girls tennis team on Tuesday at Saugus High over the Alemany Warriors. And though the gauntlet part of the schedule is ahead, four wins in a week to start the season is doing a world of confidence-building for a young Centurions team.
