Last season, he was almost perfect in league but as the old adage goes­ - almost doesn't count. His lone set loss came to Hart's Otto DeGreiff. DeGreiff graduated and Zapala's dominance resonated throughout the league, this season. He was successful in attaining his goal. The lanky Zapala was undefeated as ...
A curve ball was thrown and there was no hitter at the plate. This wasn't a baseball game. It was the Foothill League tennis prelims. Valencia's No. 1 and No. 2 singles players, Jack Zapala and Tyler Gottshall, entered into the doubles draw. For most, this meant the singles draw was up for grabs and everyone else was playing for second in doubles. Two players, though, were up for the challenge. Teammates Cameron Phillips and ...

For a kid who barely made the swim team as a freshman, Nick Korth has come a long way. Korth was among a bevy of talented swimmers in the Foothill League this season. Korth, however, exceeded many expectations, including his own. For two seasons Korth flew under the radar. Just a piece to the Hart puzzle. This season, Korth battled to the Indians forefront setting new personal records and breaking old school ones. For the ...

Football teams across the Foothill League will be competing in passing tournaments this weekend.
Chris Printz had a tough time sleeping this spring. After his Golden Valley boys basketball team went 0-10 in the Foothill League, the blame crept to the head coach's doorstop. He can sleep a little easier now, following the Grizzlies' 4-1 run in the War on the Floor Tournament that culminated in their 64-59 win over Clovis East on Tuesday to win the Silver Championship. "Last year we were a very young team," Printz said. ...
