SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO – Their record is remarkable.
Perfect would more aptly describe it, being as they've triumphed in every instance throughout the course of their high school careers.
Tennis achievements are not the topic of conversation for JSerra seniors Mary and Zoe Kaffen this recent afternoon, though. Fa
NEWPORT BEACH - A circle of golf balls hugged the pin on the green in the chipping area at Newport Beach Country Club. None was more than 2 feet away from its intended target.
At this point, Amy Matsuoka would expect nothing less.
For two hours each day, the Corona del Mar senior is at the course, wedge in had, working to
LAGUNA HILLS – While having one clear-cut feature running back is always nice, having two complementary backs sharing the workload can ease a coach’s mind.
Valencia coach Mike Marrujo has that luxury with Jahquon Speed and Darren Sandoval and he put it to good use as the Tigers earned a workmanlike 35-0 w
ALISO VIEJO – Sonora coach Paul Chiotti said before the game he had a hunch Friday’s game would be for the offenses.

SANTA ANA – The Killer Bees. That’s what they’re called, the Briseno brothers of Santa Ana High. It’s a nice nickname, though not entirely fitting, for bees strike only once, which is certainly not the case when discussing this duo.

ORANGE – After scraping by on a late field goal last week, no one on Villa Park’s football team would be likely to tell you that its undefeated season has been perfect.
But Friday night’s effort might have been as close to perfection as the Spartans can get.
Nick Sipe led Villa Park’s high-octane at
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO – Saddleback Valley Christian’s homecoming provided a superhero-themed halftime show and a frenetic football show Friday night.

Calvary Chapel’s openi
WHITTIER – St. Margaret’s undefeated record remained intact Friday night with a 49-22 road win over Whittier Christian at Whittier College in a nonleague game.
