No time for a catnap

CIF-Southern Section postseason kicks off this week



BREAKING NEWS: Monday Night Football Cat replaces Mitch Trubisky at quarterback for the Chicago Bears. If you didn’t see the black cat, more elusive than Flash Gordon who eats better than Gordon Ramsay, score a touchdown at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey during the Giants-Cowboys game, then stop what you’re doing and watch the video with the Kevin Harlan play-by-play […]

The Tribe’s Technician

Omar Mejia, a senior center, quietly excels in the trenches for WHS



Arnold Schwarzenegger is the Terminator. Jeff Bridges is the Dude. Omar Mejia is the Technician. A 6-foot, 250-pound senior center and captain for Westlake High’s football team, Mejia operates without fanfare, without fuss. He tangles in the trenches without asking anything more or less than he would give his fellow Warriors, which is his heart and soul, his blood and […]

Marco Siderman Player of the Week

Marco Siderman, QB, Westlake: The senior threw a school-record seven touchdown passes, the last scoring strike to his younger brother, Mateo. The Holy Cross commit threw for 509 yards while completing 79% of his passes. “It was a really special moment. Breaking the record in (Mateo’s) first varsity game is something we’ll both remember for a long time,” Marco said.

The Acorn Power Poll

1 Grace Brethren (8-1) Grace Brethren High’s football team suffered its first loss of the year, 13-7, to Sierra Canyon. The committee of one would be foolish to drop the Lancers in the Power Poll. Grace Brethren will collide with Camarillo on Friday at Moorpark College for the Camino League crown. 2 Camarillo (9-0) Scorpions breeze past Thousand Oaks, 47-6. […]

Clash for Kanan

Oak Park can complete first undefeated regular season, win first Canyon League title



The Chargers’ game plan is simple. Stop No. 13 Alex Jones, junior wide receiver for Oak Park High’s football team. When cross- street rivals Agoura and Oak Park collide in the Kanan Bowl this Halloween week, it’ll be trick or treat, feast or famine . . . a lifetime supply of Everlasting Gobstoppers or buckets of fermented candy corn hurled […]

Three cheers

Estrada, Scott and Shpall propel Coyotes into CIF postseason



Calabasas High’s girls’ volleyball team enjoyed its best finish in the Marmonte League standings since at least 2004. What happened before 2004? We don’t know. Coaches don’t know. The school doesn’t know. Anything pre-2004 is unofficially known as the Dark Ages. This fall, Calabasas finished second in the Marmonte to perennial powerhouse Westlake. We know that much. The Coyotes don’t […]

Lightning strikes every 24 years
