Inspiration came early for Kearsten Livingstone, the Canyon High sophomore who has already accomplished so much in her young swimming career.

Even on a day when he didn't have his best stuff, the junior threw a season high 108 pitches, struck out nine and earned his ninth win of the season in a 7-5 win over Saugus. An ace in his own right, Bauer plays the Robin role for Hart's baseball team because senior southpaw Michael Montgomery is a unique talent and Bauer has no qualms ...

"I didn't have many strikeouts, but I was able to rely on my defense to back me up." Gillies ...
Saugus was merely delaying the inevitable.

The first time Canyon tennis coach Edgar Perfecto saw Jason Ferlianto play tennis, he knew he was seeing something special. Perfecto just didn't know how old this baby-faced kid was or if he'd be attending Canyon. He did know that Ferlianto, who was hitting with his dad on the Canyon tennis courts, had a lot of talent. When baby J, as he's called by his teammates, showed up at Canyon for tryouts, Perfecto was elated.

Motivation comes in many forms. For some, it's words. For others, it's the past. Motivated to become champions, the West Ranch boys golf team and Hart High's Johnny MacArthur became just that Wednesday at TPC Valencia. West Ranch won its sixth league match out of six by shooting a team score of 385 at Wednesday's Foothill League Final/Newhall Land Cup.

Tuesday night, though, it ...

PALMDALE - Football games aren't won in the first half, but they can definitely be lost in that span.
Two straight shootout wins by Santa Clarita Valley football teams over a state power in a six-day span was a bit too much to ask on Thursday at Valencia High.
After a wild week of football last Friday, with Valencia upending CIF-Southern Section Northern Division No. 2 Palmdale, Hart outlasting state-power Chaminade and Canyon pitching a shutout, what can today provide?
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 ...
