Finally, some sort of clarity. In Foothill League boys and girls soccer, a couple of games from Tuesday gave some answers. The first answer came from boys soccer. Canyon defeating Golden Valley 1-0 gave the Cowboys what would be considered a giant five-point lead over the Grizzlies in the race for the Foothill League title. The Cowboys could clinch as early as Tuesday. With Saugus defeating West Ranch 1-0 Tuesday, it gave the Centurions a ...

For most of the game against Hart Tuesday, Valencia looked sluggish. When the game was truly in the balance, Valencia looked like its normal self. Down by one midway through the fourth quarter, the Vikings went on a 15-7 run to close the game and earn a 62-53 Foothill League victory over Hart. By forcing misses on defense, Valencia (18-5, 5-2) pushed the tempo and created high-percentage shots in transition to pull away. The first ...

Valencia has struggled to keep leads lately. With the way Hart played in the second half Tuesday, it didn't matter. Hart came out fired up after halftime and closed the third quarter on a 17-2 run to beat Valencia 75-65 in a chippy game and sweep the regular season series with its Foothill League rival. Valencia held a 45-38 lead midway through the third quarter when Hart sprung ahead, and the Indians (16-8, 5-2) turned ...
West Ranch boys basketball may be getting healthy at the right time. After battling various injuries and illnesses, West Ranch was able to run out its full assembly of talent on Tuesday en route to a 68-58 home win over Saugus. Forward Hakeem Bradley made his return to the floor after missing a pair of games for the Wildcats (15-8, 4-3), and all-time West Ranch leading scorer David Franklin made his return to the scoring ...

Last week we focused on boys basketball in the first edition of around the divisions. This week, we take a look at girls basketball. But let's make some quick points on boys basketball.
The Santa Clarita Christian girls soccer team is having a milestone season - thanks in large part to Kayla Gale's milestone accomplishment. The junior striker surpassed the 50-goal mark for her career by scoring three goals in a victory over AGBU High School of Pasadena in mid-January. Gale currently sits with 59 career goals, and Santa Clarita Christian is 14-2-1 overall and a lock to finish with the first winning record in the program's history.
We still have two weeks left in the regular season, which means a lot could still happen in Foothill League sports. But two of the races should become clearer this Tuesday.

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. "They've experienced more success than what they've expected," said first-year head coach Ken Jeffris. "They're starting to believe in themselves. Winning will ...
When you lose two of the Santa Clarita Valley's top girls volleyball players, it's hard not to say you're rebuilding. But as the Valencia Vikings girls volleyball team showed on Tuesday night against the traditionally strong Notre Dame Academy Regal Gryphons in a 3-2 win, rebuilding doesn't mean the Vikings won't be competitive in 2013. "We are a very young team. There's a lot of learning, but everyone is working really hard," said outside hitter ...
