Hart swimming has been the epitome of dominance for years, even decades, in the Foothill League.
Wednesday was a game of firsts for Golden Valley baseball. The Grizzlies topped Hart for the first time in school history at home 4-2 as Nick Rhoades hit his first home run of the year.

Some teams have a reputation so strong that they don't need to make a statement. Still, it's those types of teams that tend to send the loudest messages.

She runs on the track with high socks and a flowing mane of hair, like Florence Griffith-Joyner. Her work ethic demonstrates a rare competitive drive, which reminds her coach of Tiger Woods.
When one gripe doesn't carry much weight, Ed turns to another. And another. And another. He mentions personality clashes with his son's coach, and complains about odd lineups. None of his claims violates the rules. Sifting through the muck of gripes, there is one bonafide reason for this parent's undying anger. Quite simply, Ed's son didn't play as much as his dad hoped he would during the high school student's senior year. Ed's son was ...
