  • Valencia’s Taylor commits to Michigan

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “It’s just a really cool college. Michigan has the whole package.” Taylor said she’s glad she committed early because several of her top choices had recently signed pitchers. Valencia coach Donna Lee said she believes Taylor will be college star. “Jordan is going to be all-everything at Michigan,” Lee said. “They’re getting a pitcher who’s just so focused and such a hard worker. She wants to be the best.” It’s crunch time in high school basketball, as the Southern Section playoffs begin this week, and the pressure is on Valencia’s boys’ team. Jordan Taylor, a junior considered one of the nation’s top prep softball pitchers, who led Valencia High to the Southern Section Div. I final last spring, has made an early verbal commitment to Michigan. Taylor, a 6-foot-1 right-hander who throws 68 mph, was 18-3 with a 0.57 ERA and school-record 233 strikeouts in 148 innings last season, finishing with a streak of 58 consecutive scoreless innings. She chose defending national champion Michigan over UCLA, Arizona, Stanford, Washington, Oklahoma and Tennessee. “I feel good about it,” Taylor said. “I really like everything about Michigan and the university, and they’ve got a good education program, and that’s important to me. Obviously, I wanted to go to a school that’s a winner, but the fact Michigan won the national title last year wasn’t the deciding factor, because they had never won it before. On the verge of its most successful regular season in school history, the Vikings blew a chance to repeat as Foothill League champions by losing its final two league games. Valencia, No. 7 in last week’s Southern Section Div. I-AA rankings, dropped to the 10th seed and must open the playoffs on the road, at Glendale (12-14), Friday at 7:30 p.m. Many believed this might finally be the Vikings’ year. They feature one of the tallest frontlines in league history, with 6-foot-11 Kevin Delange, 6-8 Donjay Kakonde and 6-5 Teddy Goetz. The team has more than a week to regroup after double-digit losses to Canyon and Burroughs of Burbank, and co-coach Greg Hayes is hoping for the best. “We had a tough week, and now we have to deal with adversity and see if we can learn from this setback,” Hayes said. “Sometimes teams that finish in second place are hungrier. The challenge is on. Some sink, and some rise.” Since reaching the quarterfinals in 1998, Valencia hasn’t advanced past the second round despite winning 20 games or more three times in the past four years. League champion Canyon (18-8) plays host to Righetti of Santa Maria (9-15) on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Canyon, a league titlist for the only the second time in 19 years, has won four in a row and nine of its past 11. “If we play our game the way I know we can, I think we can go far,” senior Bryan Lewis said. Hart, which advanced to the Div. I-AA final last year, qualified as a Div. I-A wild-card entry. The Indians (13-13) make a 300-mile round trip Wednesday to Santa Maria (12-13) for a 7:30 p.m. game. The winner plays Friday at third-seeded Ventura (21-5). In Div. V-AA, Santa Clarita Christian (14-8) plays host to Newbury Park Adventist (14-3) Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. The winner plays Friday at top-seeded Hesperia Christian (19-6), which has won 10 in a row. All seven local girls’ programs – Hart, Canyon, Valencia, Saugus, Santa Clarita Christian, Golden Valley and Scott Academy – reached the playoffs. Hart (22-4), seeded No. 4 in Div. I-A, opens Saturday at 7:30 p.m. against the San Gabriel-Hoover of Glendale wild-card winner. In other I-A matchups, Canyon (19-7) plays Saturday at second-seeded Buena of Ventura (20-4), and Saugus (18-8) plays Thursday at Santa Maria (11-13) in a wild-card game. Div. I-AA Valencia (16-11) plays a wild-card matchup Thursday at Paramount (19-8), and Div. III-AA Golden Valley (14-12) plays Thursday at Atascadero (15-9) in a first-round game. In Div. V-AA first-round action Thursday, Scott Academy (7-10) plays at Faith Baptist of Canoga Park (9-10) and Santa Clarita Christian (8-13) at Holy Martyrs of Encino (18-6). Once among the Southland’s most feared baseball programs while winning three consecutive Foothill League championships from 2002 to 2004, Valencia is primed for a comeback after slipping to 15-13 – and a third place finish – in a rebuilding season last year. The first day of practice was Monday, and nearly every important starter has returned, including Division I signings Casey Mulligan (Cal State Fullerton) and Michael Hur (UC Riverside). “We’re ready to go,” coach Jared Snyder said. “I think we have a chance. It just depends how much we’ve matured over the fall. The problem last year is the kids just didn’t have enough game experience and decision-making skills. We made 62 errors, and if you do that, you’re not going to win.” After a hot start, Mulligan finished with a .284 average, three home runs and 22 RBI last year. He also was 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA and one save as a spot pitcher, and this year he’s switched from shortstop to catcher – his third position in three seasons – and could emerge as the No. 1 pitcher. Other pitching prospects include fellow right-handers Hur, Justin Shults and Nick Pappas, and left-hander Scott Fowler. Eventually, hard-throwing sophomore Robbie Mouselli could enter the mix. After seeing significant time as a varsity freshman last spring, Mouselli must play on the JV team his first five games because of academic ineligibility. Since the demotion, Mouselli has raised his GPA to 3.5, according to Snyder. An intriguing newcomer is junior outfielder Virgil Hill, a terrific all-around athlete who also excels in football and track. He was expected to be Valencia’s starting center fielder last year before deciding to take a year off to concentrate on track and field. Now he’s back in the baseball program, and perhaps he can supply much-needed speed at the top of the lineup. Hill needs to get his eye on the ball after the layoff. “Virgil is getting better, but for now, he’s a bit overmatched against good pitching,” Snyder said. Equally vital is the development of Chris Matzer, who has won a spot as the shortstop after batting just .205 with no extra-base hits and two RBI in 39 at-bats last year. Chris Valaika, Hart’s career home run leader, is on the comeback trail at UC Santa Barbara, where he missed most of his sophomore baseball season after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery. He hit a home run in a first at-bat of the season, and the shortstop is batting .471 with six RBI in four games. Former Hart teammate Shane Carlson, a freshman who has won a spot as UCSB’s starting third baseman, also is off a strong start, batting .333. In other Hart baseball news, senior pitcher Tyler Lyon has quit the team after three varsity seasons to concentrate on football. The quarterback signed with Arizona.

  • Google I/O Keynote: 8 Best Moments In Photos

    first_imgAfter debuting a Google+ design overhaul, SVP of engineering and social Vic Gundotra also took keynote attendees through a demonstration of Google’s new capabilities in photo editing. Some especially notable features include the ability to auto-edit an entire batch of photos to the best moments and to enhance photos automatically. Google Maps Escapes The Stratosphere Related Posts nick statt Senior VP Amit Singhal opened by recalling childhood hopes of bringing his Star Trek-influenced dreams to life, and segued to how Google is bringing that to pass with devices that you can talk to. The goal is to make search a natural language conversation, and Google’s examples were pretty convincing — both a Chromebook and Nexus were able to accept spoken commands and turn them into personalized search results without a single hiccup. (See also:Google Search Learns To Listen & Understand Context)Google Delivers Impressive Photo-Editing Tools While the first attempt at demoing a live multiplayer game at the keynote failed, Google managed to get it right the second time in a more impressive setting. On a stripped down racing game, four players competed all using different devices that synced together to form the race track. Google Realizes Its Star Trek Dreams One of the briefer announcements at I/O was the introduction of a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 configured with the look and UI feel of a 4.2 Jelly Bean Nexus phone. In a sense, it strips all the Samsung bloatware from the phone to deliver a much purer Google/Android experence. The phone will hit the Play store June 26, with a no-contract price of $649. Google’s Music Streaming Service Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Larry Page’s speech was notable both for its oddly vulnerable quality and for the hoarseness of Page’s voice, which hovered slightly above a whisper — a consequence of what Page described yesterday as an unexplained case of vocal chord paralysis.The big surprise here came when when Page turned the finale into a Q&A session. The highlight: Google’s CEO telling Robert Scoble, who was first in line to ask a question, that he didn’t appreciate his now-infamous Google Glass shower pic. Jon Hamm Of Mad Men Makes An Appearence (Not Really…) Last but definitely not least is that guy who looked eerily like Jon Hamm (of Mad Men, you philistines) waiting in line to ask Larry Page a question… while wearing the greatest hat ever. Turns out it wasn’t Jon Hamm (sigh), though from a distance (and over slightly grainy streaming video) the resemblance is truly uncanny.Images by Nick Statt for ReadWrite While the overhaul of Google Maps certainly wasn’t the most exciting presentations of the keynote, the presentation ended with stunning scenes of the Earth from space — both daylit and at night. That view and others that used to be limited to the Google Earth service are now baked right into your browser as part of the new Maps refresh. Desktop users will see it first, with mobile users to follow soon after. Larry Page Ends His Speech With A Q&A Session The news was out yesterday, so it wasn’t a huge surprise when Google’s Chris Yerga announced the company’s plans to enter the music streaming service battleground with Google Play All Access.
