Tuesday, Jan. 2. 8:30 a.m., La Cañada High School gymnasium. School is out for winter break but the 14 young women who make up the LCHS Girl's Varsity Basketball team are in the middle of an exhausting, combative 4-on-4 drill. Senior Guard Joy Lelo dribbles around two defenders, drives to the hoop and scores. Considering that Lelo earned Rio Hondo 'Conference Player-of-the-Year' honors as a sophomore, is averaging over 20 points per game this season and is considered one of the top players in the state one might figure head coach Tamar Hill would cut the four women on defense some slack.

A gym with no heat and an injured San Marino girl's team did not stop Tamar Hill and her La Cañada Lady Spartans basketball team from taking a late charge and a 64-47 victory over the San Marino Titans on Jan. 17 at San Marino. Despite having to run much because of the outdoor conditions, the beginning of this contest was very tight at the opening tip-off and only stayed for a few minutes when the Titans could not contain their sudden turnovers which the Spartans took advantage of. The Titans then closed the gap before halftime as the 33-22 lead for the Spartans never was threatened again.

There was no regret in Coach Tamar Hill?s voice when she said it. ?This was where we wanted to be,? Coach Hill said, ?this was the match up we wanted tonight, because we know them so well, but you can?t be mad at kids for playing hard and not winning.? Notre Dame and star forward Kody Burke took down La Cañada last Thursday, 47-38, in the quarterfinals of the CIF-SS Division V-AA playoffs ?We figured we had to hold them to under 40 [points],? said Notre Dame Coach, ?

As a dad, I find myself relegated to tasks that are out of character for a guy like me. But I have learned in this father business that no job is too demeaning. So I sit in the bleachers of the North Gym at La Canada High School watching Sabine and Simone play basketball at the Spartan All Star Girls Basketball Camp. It's 110 degrees in the gym; hotter than a biscuit. I've got water bottles, 'fishies', M&M's, a half-eaten Snickers bar and two packs of sour straws. I'm the water boy. It gets worse.

La Canada's girl's varsity basketball team increased its lead in the Rio Hondo League standings by scoring victories this past week over San Marino and Pasadena Blair. The Spartans, who have improved to 18-4 overall and to 7-1 in league play, hosted South Pasadena on Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. La Cañada will conclude the regular league season by hosting Temple City today (Thursday) at 5:30 p.m. As in their previous league encounter this season, the Spartans had no trouble with Blair, even though the Vikings were hosting the contest.

The Spartans hit the hardwood in the middle game of the opening night of the Hoover Tip-Off Classic here at Hoover High?s Tornado Dome on Tuesday evening, as La Cañada (1-0) defeated Los Angeles Franklin, 60-43. Despite struggling early on to set up its offense or control loose balls, La Cañada eventually put it all together to distance themselves from the Panthers (0-1). ?In the first half, we had a lot of deflections, but we weren?t possessing,? La Cañada Head Coach Tamar Hill said about her team?

It could be the ideal game for any basketball team, male or female, to play with good passing, lots of scoring, and just good ball handling skills. Something that would be mistake- free against your opponents. Unfortunately, in the case of coach Tamar Hill and her La Cañada High School Lady Spartans, this did not occur enough to take on and defeat the Rancho Cucamonga Cougars, who clawed their way and defeated the Spartans rather easily, 57-28, Dec. 19 at La Cañada. The Spartans themselves turned over the ball too many times in the contest, and the Tigers presented too many fast breaks for their opponents to handle, something that Coach Hill was obviously noticing.

It was only natural that the battle for second place in the Rio Hondo League came down to the final possession, but La Cañada ended up on the losing side of its battle against South Pasadena, as the Spartans lost a heartbreaker to the Tigers at the season finale, 50-48, last Tuesday. On the bright side, La Cañada still qualified for the playoffs despite the loss, as the Spartans finished the regular season with a 14-11 overall record, 5-5 in league play. With the loss, the Spartans dropped to fourth place in the Rio Hondo League, while South Pasadena (17-6, 6-4)

There is an old saying that whatever anything good happens; it must eventually come to an end. This is what happened to Coach Tamar Hill and the La Cañada Lady Spartans on Feb. 22 as their 2005-06 campaign came to an end in the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA quarterfinals at home against visiting Anaheim Magnolia. The Spartans' quest for a CIF title came up short in a 56-50 loss. La Cañada finished 21-6 while Magnolia, which won the Orange League, advanced to the CIF semifinals last Saturday where they topped Rancho Santa Margarita Santa Margarita, 46-42.
