There was no question the La Cañada High boys' soccer team had plenty of talent coming into the 2011 season, as several seniors returned to lead the Spartans to a deep CIF Southern Section Division V playoff.
Those who rose above the rest were singled out when the All-CIF Southern Section Division V team was released on March 22. Senior forwards Cameron Meeker and Matt Canatta were first-team selections, Spartans midfielder Arash Mahboubi and goalkeeper Jack Hale were named to the second team and sophomore forward Armand Bagramyan was chosen on the third team.
Meeker and Canatta had incredible seasons, La Cañada Coach Barry Ritson said, after the pair carried the Spartans offensively last season as well.
"If you take the black and white view and look at their stats, I think that tells you the overall story of their season. They always stepped up to the plate and carried the team at times," Ritson said.
