After watching the La Cañada High boys' basketball team finish its season as CIF Southern Section Division III champions, the Spartans' softball squad is ready to embark on its own playoff journey.
"Our girls really got into that basketball season, the whole school did," La Cañada softball Coach KC Matthews said. "The school support for that team was tremendous."
La Cañada's first-round game of the CIF Southern Section Division V softball playoffs is at 3:15 p.m. today against the winner of the Ramona Convent/Sierra Vista wild-card contest.
The Spartans (21-3, 12-0 in Rio Hondo) enter the tournament as the top seed, but they won't be getting ahead of themselves, Matthews said.
"Our girls have done a really good job this year of having some goals and taking it one game at a time," Matthews said. "I know it sounds cliché, but they really have taken each challenge as it comes."
