Pair Of College Of The Canyons Golfers Transfer To Four-Year Universities

College of the Canyons golfers Kris Grimes and Nicole De Francisco will continue their collegiate careers at four-year universities in the spring.

Grimes won the California Community College Athletic Association state title in 2011 and was the Southern California champion in 2012. She will transfer to Southern Illinois University.

De Francisco will continue her college golf career at Cal State Northridge. Both women will be able to join their teams in the spring midway through the NCAA season.

In college soccer, the College of the Canyons women’s team was ranked No. 6 in the final National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll.

COC reached the second round of the California Community College Athletic Association’s regional playoffs and lost to Ventura College 1-0. It was the only loss of the season for the Lady Cougars.

COC was 18-1-4 and won the Western State Conference championship, its fifth in school history and first since 2004.

Cerritos College was ranked No. 1 in the final NSCAA national poll.

In baseball, no players were elected to the Hall of Fame, the first time writers have failed to send anyone to Cooperstown since 1996.

Former Dodgers catcher Mike Piazza was among the first-time candidates on the Hall of Fame ballot. Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens were also on the ballot for the first time.

Craig Biggio garnered the most votes, but was 39 shy of being elected.

The Dodgers have scheduled a couple of interesting exhibition games in spring training. They will play the World Baseball Classic team from Mexico in Arizona. The Dodgers will also play the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, their single-A affiliate in the California League, in a split squad game before the season starts.

In the NBA, the Lakers lost to the San Antonio Spurs, 108-105. It was the fifth loss in a row for the Lakers who dropped to 15-20 on the season.

The Clippers, meanwhile, broke another franchise record winning streak with a 99-93 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

The Clippers have a 13-game home winning streak, the longest in team history, and are 29-8 overall.

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!”
