Jordan Starr

As the center for Santa Clarita Christian School’s boys’ basketball team, Jordan Starr is a senior standout. Last week he scored 19 points to go along with six rebounds as the Cardinals defeated Valencia 74-48 at the War on the Floor Showcase at Pierce College. This marks the first game SCCS has played against Valencia, according to Maxpreps.com. The Cardinals now own a 1-0 record in the matchup.

“He is a 6-foot 7-inch point guard that is a gifted passer and the leader of our team,” said James Mosley, boys’ basketball coach at Santa Clarita Christian School. “Jordan has been exceptional all year long. He had 31 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in our win over Orange Lutheran. He is also a leader in our school and a wonderful person.”



Catalina Castillo-Lozano

A Saugus High School senior and member of the girls’ soccer team, Catalina Castillo-Lozano made her presence known last week when she scored two goals in the Centurions’ 5-0 win over Dos Pueblos. Her two goals in the game were Castillo-Lozano’s first for the season according to Maxpreps.com. The win was Saugus’ fourth in a row before losing to Thousand Oaks 2-1 last Saturday.

“Catalina is one of our three captains this year and has commanded our team from the center of the field,” said Saugus girls’ soccer coach Aly Drake. “Her vision of the field has allowed us to keep possession of the ball and work it up the field. She does a great job of keeping the midfield connected with the forwards and is a great verbal leader on the field. In her senior year, she has stepped up tremendously and displays an attitude that she is willing to do whatever it takes to have a successful senior year.”
