  • The race for this year’s Grossmont Hills League boys water polo championship appears to be hotly contested. Front-runners include the Valhalla Norsemen, Grossmont Foothillers and Steele Canyon Cougars.

    Valhalla won last year’s league title while Grossmont captured the San Diego Section Division I championship.

    “All three teams return a lot of players, so the league title should be closely contested,” veteran Valhalla coach Kent Houston said.

  • Awards banquets in the journalism community have always felt like high school reunions to me – the odds of running into people who have seen me crying on a college newsroom floor at 2 a.m. is high, conversation is steady and superfluous, and there are a lot of people there who are just more successful enough than me that it makes me nervous.

    Perhaps you can relate.

    Sometime or other, we all find ourselves facing check points. Our lives run into that great standard that delineates how we have measured up so far.
