Caroline Gordon wasn't getting her hopes up about being named the Prep League's Most Valuable Player. The La Cañada High goalkeeper was aware such accolades are usually reserved for standout offensive players. "It's really hard to get MVP awards as a goalie," said Gordon, who recorded 129 saves on 290 shots on goal this year for a 45% save percentage. "It's not the most glorious position. They usually give it to offensive players. " Gordon's chances took a bigger hit when one considered the Spartans finished fourth out of five teams in league with a 3-13, 2-6 in league record.

It was never easy corralling Lucy Dodson, the standout center for the La Cañada High girls' lacrosse team. Allison Dodson, Lucy's mom, who also happens to coach the Spartans, points to a photo that was taken during the playoffs as an example. "They just can't stop her," Dodson chuckles. "They're hitting her across the head, but they just can't seem to stop her. " All of the coaches in the Prep League knew what kind of mismatches Lucy created on the field, and they paid her the ultimate respect, naming her the Prep League's Most Valuable Player.
