We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted.

Football success in San Clemente doesn’t stop with the high school varsity Tritons.
The Pee Wee and Mighty Mite level Tritons of South Coast Youth Football each qualified for the Pop Warner Wescon Division 2 Regional Championships, which will be played this Saturday, Nov. 20, at Deer Valley High School in Glendale, Arizona.
While the Mighty Mite Tritons are scheduled to take on the Charter Oak Chargers for the regional title at 8 a.m. on Saturday, the Pee Wee Black Tritons have already been crowned regional champions, due to a forfeit of the Charter Oak Chargers’ Pee Wee team.
The Pee Wee Black Tritons, who are 9- to 11-year-olds from 75-135 pounds, have put together a stellar season with a 10-1 record, allowing no more than six points in any game this season. The Tritons dominated Deer Valley OTB Elite in the semifinals, 30-0, last Saturday, Nov. 13, at Buena Park High School.
The Mighty Mite Tritons, who are 7- to 9-year-olds from 45-105 pounds, beat the Deer Valley Hurricanes in the semifinals last Saturday in Buena Park.
