  • When Santana played Mar Vista in the regular season, the Sultans’ sideline looked like an infirmary.

    Now the Sultans are back at full strength in the playoffs, and it showed in their 23-6 win over the Mariners Friday night.

    Junior quarterback Nathan Temple missed seven games with a broken collarbone this season, including the 27-13 loss to Mar Vista on Sept. 21.

  • The celebration lasted so long, Foothills Christian got locked out of the locker rooms.

    The Knights beat the San Diego Jewish Academy Lions 41-14 in the CIF San Diego Section Division VI championship game held at Mission Bay High School last Saturday. Foothills Christian (9-2, 5-0 Ocean) forced four turnovers and held San Diego Jewish (6-3, 3-2 Ocean) to 239 yards, with just 93 of those coming in the second half.

    “They gave us all we wanted that first half and then they started wearing down and I think our conditioning paid off,” head coach Joe Mackey said.

  • The man who shot Leticia Arroyo to death in her Santee home was sentenced Nov. 9 to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    About 20 friends and family of Arroyo, 34, were present at the sentencing of Jose Nunez Torres, 23, who was also given a consecutive term of 24 years and eight months for other crimes.

    Her mother, sister, grandmother and uncle spoke about their loss in the Oct. 4, 2016, slaying.

    “What really upsets me is he never showed any remorse,” said Rosanna Reyes, who is Arroyo’s mother.
