For more than a decade, the Foothill League has been Indian territory. It still is. Hart, with a 20-6 victory over Saugus at College of the Canyons Friday night, captured its fourth consecutive league championship. The Indians (10-0, 4-0) have claimed league titles in nine of 11 seasons. But Saugus (5-3-2, 3-1) didn't lie down and play dead against a Hart offense that averages more than 36 points and 390 yards per game.

It is not surprising that many of the players at Saugus, not the least of whom was tailback Lamark Allen, were disenchanted with football after the season they had last year. "I don't even want to think about last year," said Allen, a senior. Who could blame him? The Centurions were 0-10 and scored 14 points or less nine times. It wasn't exactly the kind of high-powered offense in which a speedy back dubbed "Marcus" by his teammates could excel.

 The summer season ended on Tuesday night with the championship game of the Valley Invitational Baseball League at Birmingham High, and Newhall Hart emerged as the champion with an 8-4 victory over Foothill League rival Saugus. UCLA-bound Nick Valaika of Hart had two singles and two RBIs. Dillon Klement, a catcher whose father, Tim, was a standout at Sylmar in the 1980s, delivered a two-run single.  Chad Haslock had three singles. It was a productive summer for a Hart team that has lots of talented young players and didn't even use one of its best players, infielder Dayton Provost, who has been healing a hamstring injury.

 After a 2-8 season in 2012, West Ranch has a new coach, Jan Miller, up from the JV team. He's a former Marine sergeant major and current LAPD officer. The Wildcats have shown summer improvement, as demonstrated by making the championship game of the Saugus passing tournament.

A Santa Clarita Valley school board member already censured by his colleagues for inappropriate comments about Nazis was removed from the panel after a district probe showed he lives outside the district. The Saugus Union School Board voted 4-1 on Tuesday night to kick out Stephen Winkler because they believe he violated a rule requiring board members to reside in the school district. School board member Doug Bryce, in explaining the evidence gathered by a district investigator, said Winkler had claimed to live on the 27100 block of Rio Prado Drive in Valencia and showed mail for an address there last month.

Every basketball coach should have Greg Hayes' problem. "It's a nice problem to have," the Canyon High coach said Thursday night, "when you win by nine points and you're still not satisfied." Hayes must have felt some satisfaction. Canyon, paced by Butch Mettinger's 16 points and Greg Paskwietz's 14, claimed the Golden League championship with a 52-43 win over Saugus. It is the first Canyon league title since 1978, and the first since Hayes took over as coach four years ago.
