Hart Softball Team Wins ASA National Championship

sportslocalThe Hart Gold U-10 softball team won an ASA national championship over the weekend in Salem, Oregon.

The Hart girls beat La Mirada, 11-0, in the championship game on Sunday and finished the tournament a perfect 6-0. Hart outscored its opponents 80-4 and hit .460 as a team during the six-day tournament.

Cayla Kessinger was the star of the team, hitting .800. Pitchers Lindsay Clare and Mariah Lopez shared duties in the circle and combined to go undefeated in the tournament.

Hart beat teams from Chula Vista, Corona, Fresno and Belmont en route to winning the championship.

In pro football, Hart High grad Matt Moore, the back-up quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, completed 4-of-7 passes for 38 yards in a 24-17 loss to the New York Giants last night.

Quarterback Kyle Boller, another Hart High graduate, might get some considerable playing time for the St. Louis Rams in the next two preseason games. He was brought in to back up oft-injured Marc Bulger, who is recovering from a fracture in the pinkie finger of his throwing hand. Bulger is expected to miss the next two preseason games for the Rams, giving Boller, a seven-year NFL veteran, a chance to run the first-team offense. The Rams play the Atlanta Falcons on Friday night.

Other players to watch for this week are:
Isaac Sopoaga (College of the Canyons), starting at left defensive end for the San Francisco 49ers. Next game vs. Oakland Raiders on Saturday.

Jonathan Fanene (College of the Canyons), reserve left defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals. Next game vs. New England Patriots on Thursday.

Domata Peko (College of the Canyons), starting left defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals. Next game vs. New England Patriots on Thursday.

Justin Tryson (College of the Canyons), back-up cornerback for the Washington Redskins. Next game vs. Pittsburgh Steeler on Saturday.

Andrew Schantz (Canyon High), reserve linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Next game vs. Washington Redskins on Saturday.

Troy Nolan (College of the Canyons), reserve safety for the Houston Texans. He was scheduled to have surgery Monday to repair a broken hand and might not be ready to return until after opening day on Sept. 13. Next game vs. New Orleans Saints on Saturday.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
