"Distance" is a recurring theme for Terraine "TJ" Wiggins Jr. The CIF Division II discus champion, known for hurling over great distances, has already come a long way.
Local 14-year-old Isabella "Jiggy" Escribano is already a viral sensation, but now gets to showcase her basketball skills at the international level.
For the first time in three years, the Special Needs Athletes and Persons hosted its SoCal Special Hockey Festival. The event, held at the Cube, saw special-needs teams from Bakersfield, Simi Valley and San Diego all join the Valencia Flyers in competing in a fun day of ice hockey.
Former Vikings' catcher Amy Moore played a long, illustrious softball career, earning the Valencia native an induction into the Great Britain Softball Hall of Fame.
No matter how challenging your life may be, you need to change your mentality to persevere and get 1 percent better every day.

Santa Clarita athletics enthusiasts watched an improbable sports feat unfold when the Valencia Vikings took the CIF Southern Section title - and more - during a storied playoff run.
Unfortunately, when it comes to dealing with adversity, Saugus High School students have written the playbook. After experiencing the ravages of local wildfires, a school tragedy and a pandemic, the young adults that roam the campus on Centurion Way have successfully overcome a litany of challenges.
After an abbreviated 2021 basketball season dominated by a talented West Ranch Wildcats squad, coaches from around the Foothill League in Santa Clarita are confident 2022 won't look anything like 2021 - or include an undefeated favorite.
For the past four decades, anyone associated with the Hart High School football program knows two names: Herrington and Fiscus. But, while these pillars are synonymous with Hart football, many don't know where the Herrington story began. We're about to remedy that.
We asked local student athletes one question: "What are you most excited about for Back to School?" As parents and educators, we've never seen more kids more excited to head back to campus! Here, they share their enthusiasm for their programs, teammates, coaches, classes and more.
When local AYSO phenom Cassidy Puleo told her parents that she wanted to switch from soccer to field hockey, confusion set in.
If you thought that cornhole was a not-serious-at-all bar game you play with a beer in one hand and a hotwing in the other, you'd be right... and entirely wrong. Massively popular on the East Coast, the sport has two competitive national organizations, ESPN coverage and lightening-fast growth in So Cal.
It was a goofy moment of team unity, heading into the playoffs: In an exercise befitting a hockey team consisting of adventurous boys and young men, ages 16 to 21, they all decided to dye their hair blonde before the playoffs began.
I was an interloper on the field at Dodger Stadium. Sure, I went through the proper motions - stretched my legs a bit, bounced a little on my toes, as I prepared to get down in my crouch behind home plate, my leather glove oiled up and ready to catch some heat.
Tiger Woods played here. No, not the aging, post-scandal, trying-to-make-a-comeback - with a bad back - Tiger Woods. This was the young, dominating Tiger. The one whose steely stare on a Sunday could freeze an entire field of golfers like deer stuck in a tractor's headlights on the 18th fairway. He was just 22 and was already the talk of the golf world.
The rumble was part of the Santa Clarita Valley's charm. Every summer Saturday, you could hear it from across the valley. At first it was rhythmic, as just one or two cars took afternoon hot laps to warm up for the evening races at Saugus Speedway, engines revving loudly in the straights before the drivers let off the gas to navigate the track's challenging, flat corners. As more cars took to the one-third-mile paved oval, the rumble built to a near-constant hum.
Standing there with 92,000 of my closest friends at the 2018 Rose Bowl, I got to thinking: Sports allegiances are a bit of a moving target, but somehow the target always circles back to home.
We're mostly going from memory, so bear with us. As the City of Santa Clarita celebrates its 30th birthday, the sports fans among us have been reflecting on the evolution of sports in the Santa Clarita Valley over the past three decades. Like the city we call home, our sports scene has grown, evolved, achieved and excelled for the past 30 years.
