DAY IN SPORTS: HART AGAIN CAN'T SOLVE VALENCIA.

Byline: Daily News

This was supposed to be the year the Hart High of Newhall girls' tennis team finally beat Valencia, the three-time defending Foothill League champions.

But sophomore twins Alexa and Cassie Strange dominated singles play for host Valencia, ranked No. 10 by the Daily News, in the Vikings' 11-7 league-opening victory Tuesday.

Hart (3-2, 0-1) had lost in tiebreakers to Valencia both times the teams played last season.

Valencia improved to 4-2, 1-0.

In other girls' tennis:

--Calabasas 17, Newbury Park 1: Kristen McVitty and Erin Wiesener remained undefeated in singles play with straight-set victories for Calabasas (6-0, 5-0), ranked No. 1 by the Daily News, in a Marmonte League victory on the road.

In girls' golf:

--Notre Dame 235, Alemany 265: Senior Mayumi Kobayashi shot a 1-under-par 36 to earn medalist honors for the second time in as many matches as Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks (4-0, 3-0) won a Mission League match at Encino Golf Course.

--La Reina 228, Fillmore 314: Alana Maiello earned medalist honors with a 6-over 40 at Los Robles Golf Course for La Reina of Thousand Oaks, winners of back-to-back Frontier League titles.

Teammates Jennifer Curtain and Samantha Katz added rounds of 45 and 46, respectively, as all five players shot under 50 for La Reina (3-0, 2-0).

In girls' volleyball:

--Village Christian d. Campbell Hall 3-2: Katie Stauffer had 18 kills and Jackie Ruiz added 11 for Village Christian of Sun Valley (8-2), which won 25-12, 25-19, 28-30, 16-25, 15-11.

--Newbury Park d. Moorpark 3-1: Chelsea Fleher scored on 12 consecutive service points, including fives aces, for Newbury Park (5-2, 3-0), which remained tied for first place in the Marmonte League after the 25-19, 25-13, 24-26, 25-9 victory.

In boys' water polo:

--Flintridge Prep 9, Western 7: Brothers Jeff and Ben Naecker combined for seven goals in a nonleague victory for host Flintridge Prep of La Canada.

On Friday, the Rebels (13-2) will play host to Chadwick of Palos Verdes, the team with which they shared a Prep League title a season ago.

In women's soccer:

--Pierce 7, Citrus 0: Casey Dodd scored twice and Sydney Sterk had three saves as Pierce (8-0-1, 4-0-1) remained atop the Western State Conference standings with the victory at home.
