GLENDALE — For four seasons, the Foothill All-Stars softball squad has become quite accustomed to the rigors of the Section 2 Tournament. But after prevailing against Mission Hills on Tuesday, the group of Glendale girls and their coaches are venturing into unknown territory. "Whole new experience coming up," Foothill co-Coach Todd Fabian said. After three previous summers of coming up just short of winning at the Section 2 Tournament, the Foothill Major Softball All-Stars triumphed on Tuesday, defeating Mission Hills, 3-1, to move on to today's Southern California State Championships.

GLENDALE — Although Foothill Giuseppe's co-Manager Tyson Howard called it a close game early and one of the toughest tests his team faced in the Tri-Cities District 16 Major Softball Tournament of Champions, Monday night's championship game against the Crescenta Valley Red Hots at Scholl Canyon Ball Fields ended up much the way the team's past tournament games have — in a big win. Alex Howard went the five-inning distance in the circle for...

GLENDALE — Having already overcome a deficit of equal size in its last at bats against Quartz Hill in the opening round of the Section 2 Major Softball Tournament on Thursday, the Foothill All-Stars stayed confident when they found themselves once again down by three runs near the end of Saturday's winner's bracket game against Mission Hills. And, even though Foothill's rally came up a run short this time, in a 3-2 loss at the Canyon Country Little League facility, Coach Tyson Howard remains confident of the team's ability to play its way back to the championship game.

GLENDALE — Foothill had little difficulty swinging the bats and scoring runs throughout the District 16 Major Softball All-Star Tournament. The core group also once again relied on its pitching depth en route to winning the championship for the fourth season in a row. Foothill will now look to use that lethal combination to try to get through the next stage — the Section 2 Tournament. Foothill aims to avenge a 1-0 loss against District 51 representative Quartz Hill in the Section 2 championship game last season when the teams meet at 5 p.m. today at Canyon Country Little League Field.

GLENDALE — Staring directly at the possibility of heartbreaking defeat, the Foothill Major Softball All-Stars hardly played the part of a bunch of downtrodden Little Leaguers, according to co-Coach Tyson Howard. "My girls, even though they're down [two runs] in the ninth, they are dancing and singing and just having the best time," Howard said. And after the bottom of the ninth, there was even more reason for dancing and singing, as Foothill pulled off the latest in a line of dramatic victories, as it rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning late Sunday night to defeat Westchester Del Ray, 7-6, in the semifinals of the Southern California State Championships Tournament at Ken Hubbs Little League complex in Colton.

CANYON COUNTRY — For five innings on Thursday afternoon, the Foothill Major Softball All-Stars allowed rival Quartz Hill too many chances and squandered the few they were afforded. Unpredictably, it turned out to simply be setting the stage for an amazing Foothill comeback. Held to just one hit over the first five innings and down by three runs entering the final inning, the District 16 champions rallied with seven hits, two walks and seven stunning runs in a come-from-behind 7-3 win for Foothill over Quartz Hill in the opening game of the Section 2 Tournament at the Canyon Country Little League facility.

GLENDALE — In the budding rivalry between the 10-11 Foothill All-Stars and their Quartz Hill counterparts, every game has been close, but every contest has ended with Foothill on the wrong end of it. It was true once more on Monday evening, as District 16 champion Foothill fell, 1-0, to Quartz Hill in the Section 2 Tournament title game at El Dorado Park in Lancaster. "It was a great softball game, we just came out on the wrong end of it," said Foothill Manager Tyson Howard.

GLENDALE — Hot bats and power pitching keyed the charge on Friday night for the Foothill Major All-Stars, but it was an overall change in attitude that seemed prevalent as the Glendale squad continued to ascend to new heights. "We played a lot better [Friday], our attitudes were up, we never got down," said third baseman Sammy Fabian, who had three hits and three runs to spark a hard-fought 5-3 victory over Colton in the second round of the Southern California State Championships Tournament at the Ken Hubbs Little League complex in Colton.

MONTROSE - While its three-game shutout streak had to come to an end, the Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Star softball team still easily wrapped up its second championship in a week. As it did in capturing the District 16 title, CV-Foothill racked up plenty of hits (13) and capitalized on a number of errors (five) to win the Section 2 championship by a double-digit margin, 12-1, with a win over West Lancaster in five innings Tuesday night at Montrose Community Park. PHOTOS: Crescenta Valley vs. West Lancaster junior softball playoff “It has been a little bit easy, but the next round certainly will not be,” said CVFH Coach Will Thayer, whose team has outscored its opponents 65-1 in all four games it's played.

COLTON — On the doorstep of advancing to the Western Regional, the Foothill Major All-Star softball team appeared to have things in control. Throughout most of its playoff run, Foothill excelled in every facet of the game. In order to get to that next step, Foothill had to overcome an opponent that proved to be a worthy challenge. Unfortunately for Foothill, Westchester Del Ray came in as good as advertised and derailed its championship aspirations. Foothill saw its season conclude with a 12-0 loss to Westchester on Wednesday night in the if-necessary championship game of the Southern California State Championship at Ken Hubbs Little League Field.

GLENDALE - When the Crescenta Valley-Foothill and Westchester Del Rey Junior All-Star softball teams last met, CVFH pulled out a walk-off win on Westchester's home field to take the 2012 Southern California Division III tournament title. For the fourth year in a row, the two were reunited in divisional play Tuesday. This time, Westchester dealt CVFH a blow to its hopes of repeating in Southern California in its own backyard of the Scholl Canyon Ballfields. It wasn't even close in the most recent chapter written by the two opponents, with Westchester cruising to a 12-0, five-inning victory after racking up 11 hits and benefiting from six CVFH errors.

GLENDALE - On the way to capturing the District 16 title, the Burbank-Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Stars scored 36 runs and allowed none in a combined two softball games. In the opening game of the Section 2 tournament at Montrose Community Park against District 51 champion West Lancaster, they looked to continue their dominant play, and that is exactly what they did. Propelled by a nine-run second inning, the Burbank-CV-Foothill team hammered West Lancaster, winning, 17-0, in a contest stopped after five innings due to the mercy rule.

GLENDALE - It was important for the Burbank-Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Stars softball team not get ahead of itself in the District 16 tournament. Temptation was certainly there with just one team - Tujunga - to beat in a best two-out-of-three series for the district title. It certainly appeared Burbank-CV-Foothill didn't take its opponent for granted, though, as it cruised to a pair of 18-0 victories with the district championship win coming Tuesday night at Pelanconi Park in four innings.

WESTCHESTER - For the past two years, Will Thayer has had his Crescenta Valley All-Stars softball teams come painfully close to a division championship, only to come up short each time. Last season, the Foothill Major All-Stars also came up short in their Southern California State Championships tournament bid to a familiar Westchester Del Rey squad. While Thursday's Southern California Division III championship game at Kent D. Mace Field couldn't have gotten any closer, a division celebration was finally to be had for the consolidated Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Stars squad.
