When opposing teams see that the La Cañada High girls' basketball team starts a sophomore and a freshman, they might think they will be able to exploit the youngsters' inexperience. But sophomore Courtney Chen and freshman Keilee Bessho don't play scared and they are not easily intimidated. In fact, they play more like wily veterans. The pair played major roles for the No. 7 Spartans Saturday in their CIF Southern Section Division 3-A second-round playoff game against No. 10 Corona del Mar. Chen and Bessho combined for 14 of La Cañada's 17 points in the fourth quarter and the Spartans held off a late comeback attempt to notch a 56-49 victory at home.

La Cañada girls’ basketball fell to Atascadero in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA playoffs, 53-51, on Saturday night. The loss meant an early exit for the Spartans, who were ranked No. 4 in Division IV-AA heading into the playoffs and were expected to get to at least the quarterfinals. The stats seemed to indicate the game was lost on rebounds as the Spartans mustered as many boards total (11) as the Greyhounds’ senior Raven Taylor and junior Shannon Berwick had each.

It was a tough ending for the St. Francis boys' varsity soccer team against host Corona del Mar in a CIF Southern Section Division II quarterfinal match on Feb. 26. The Sea Kings edged the Golden Knights, 3-2, to drop them from post season play and conclude a season that most other teams would have been proud to have had. St. Francis finished 24-6-1 overall, one of their best seasons ever, and captured the Mission League title. It was still a disappointing loss for the Golden Knights because they were hoping to win the Division championship for the second straight year.

La Cañada boys’ water polo season ended last Thursday in a near upset as the Spartans started a young line up and lost to Santiago Corona, 12-11, in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs. “We started a very young squad with two freshmen,” said La Cañada Head Coach German Lopez, “and they had two dominant lefties. We came out against Santiago and made it a one-goal game.” The game was tied at 4 at the half. The Spartans found themselves down 11-8 with four minutes left in the fourth period.

From a nerve-wracking marathon penalty-kick session to recording shutouts, it's been a dramatic and historic postseason run for the La Cañada High girls' soccer team. Ultimately, it has been one that's landed the Spartans in the program's first CIF Southern Section championship match. Third-seeded La Cañada (22-0-1) will look to top off its impressive playoff run when it meets St. Margaret's (11-10-6) in the Division V title match at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Corona High. “My focus has been more on my players enjoying this experience,” said La Cañada Coach Louie Bilowitz, who has plenty of championship pedigree after he previously guided the school's boys' soccer team to three CIF titles from 1989-96.
