: : : : : : Hello Ya'll. I'm about to start my controversial message today with my prediction for the Santa Clarita girls' high school Foothill league standings once the season is played out.
: : : : : : 1. Saugus
: : : : : : 2. Canyon
: : : : : : 3. Valencia
: : : : : : 4. Hart
: : : : : : 5. Golden Valley
: : : : : : 6. West Ranch
: : : : : : I think this year will be Saugus's year after years of getting beaten by the Valencia and Canyon. It seems like It will be a yar or two before Valencia and Canyon reloads. Hart can be a dark horse in this. Golden Valley and West Ranch will be a big surprise if they can end up in the top three.
: : : : : UMMMMM - if you have seen most teams play this summer, then I would feel sorry for your ability to "evaluate". You did say "I think" and "It seems", so I'm guessing you have not seen any games. I've seen a few games/teams this summer (not all) & I conclude for now: Saugus has a fighting chance. Canyon has no chance. Hart has no chance. GV & WR per usual will fight it out to not go 0-10. Valencia is favorite based on their summer play.
: : : : : 1. Valencia 10-0
: : : : : 2. Saugus 8-2
: : : : : 3. Canyon/Hart 5-5
: : : : : 6. GV/WR 1-9
: : : : Canyon has no chance. They lost everybody.
: : : : Per the last comment, it has to have been a Valencia folk giving their input, which is totally appreciated. However, I donít feel the same way. Sorry, but Iím not drinking the same Kool aid. I do think Saugus will win the division this year, with Canyon coming in 2nd and Valencia in 3rd.
: : I have nothing to do with Valencia. You can't lose your top 4 players with no depth on the bench as proven in their playoff loss. Plus the lower level teams were horrible, so where are they going to get the talent to finish second. I say Saugus and Valencia will battle it out.
: I agree with the first post, Saugus is the favorite, this is their year
:::I have seen every team multiple times this summer and have a real good feel for the league.
Valencia and Saugus are the 2 favorites. I give the edge to Valencia because Saugus hasn't come close to beating Valencia in years. Both games last season were Valencia blowouts. I think Saugus may be the better team, but mentally, Valencia holds a huge advantage. Valencia is again going through the annual Fire Jerry Mike requests from the girls. How much of a distraction this will be remains to be seen. I do know that Valencia does not have strong leadership on the team, so the Jerry Mike stuff may affect their season.
I think Canyon will finish 3rd and Hart 4th. Canyon lost everybody but is still the only team with any height, plus they are getting a 6'3" transfer in from Colorado. I also think Canyon has the best head coach and the top coaching staff. If she can develop the kids she has, Canyon will challenge both Valencia and Saugus for the league.
Hart will always play very hard, but they just don't have the horses. Word is that their senior post player suffered a couple concussions this summer and may be done with ball. If she's out, Hart will struggle. She was the glue for them.
I think Golden Valley will finish 5th and West Ranch 6th. Golden Valley got a few nice freshmen in and will begin to build around those girls. West Ranch got in 1 decent freshman but lost their best returning player who quit because of disagreements with the head coach. There are rumors about kids transferring out also because of issues with the coach.
Golden Valley is on the rise, while West Ranch is continuing to struggle.
Just my take, Thought????
