LOOKING FOR THE LAST MINUTE

Injuries and inconsistency led to a disappointing outcome for Coach Todd Mapes’ boys soccer team.  In the recently completed Citrus Hill Tournament, the Wolves finished in 4th place, after dropping the Third-place game 4-5 against Vista Murrieta.  In their semifinal game against Arlington, King dropped that game 2-3. In both games, King’s opponent scored in

WOOD ROAD TURNS INTO A SHOOT OUT AND SHUT OUT

The boys soccer team took on their “end of the road” rival Citrus Hill, the school located 1.4 miles south of King on Wood Road. It became a shooting match with plentiful shots on goal by both teams that ultimately had King’s goalie working overtime and King finding a way for one of those shots

KING AHEAD OF SCHEDULE DESPITE FIRST LOSS

File image The Wolves took on La Sierra in an early-early season, non-league match.  The Eagles are a quality opponent and took home the victory, 1-0.

PROFILE IN CHARACTER – CHRIS ANKLAM

If there ever was a model of “PEAK” and CIF’s Character Counts vision for high school athletics, it could be Chris Anklam.  A varsity soccer for two years, the varsity football kicker this past Fall,  a Link Crew leader during his junior and senior year … Chris has modeled with integrity all that the above-mentioned titles evoke.

Remarkably, despite the school’s relative youth, athletic programs and individuals across the spectrum have excelled inside this short time

UNBEATEN NO MORE, TITLE TO BE DECIDED WEDNESDAY

KING OF HEART PAYS OFF IN BIG GAME

NORCO:  With a very tight contest atop the Big 8 League standings, every game will carry special significance as the season winds down.  The teams will have to dig a little deeper and play with great grit and heart if they want to finish on top. The standings currently have King at the top with

3-3 TIE GIVES RISE TO URGENCY

Photo for Illustration The first half of the boys’ soccer game against the Sharks of Santiago went like many games do, with one point scored by Santiago as the two teams took the mid-game break. But Coach Todd Mapes saw in that mundane mid-point a lack of urgency with his players that alarmed him even

SOCCER HANGS ON TO FIRST PLACE

CORONA:  For both King and Corona, it took 50 minutes last Friday to get either team  on the board and it was the Wolves that struck first. Mason Mapes headed in a long throw that hit net. Eleven minutes later, Corona returned the favor and the two teams found themselves knotted yet again.  Such can
