LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - When the apex of Friday evening's La Cañada High football game involved members of the Spartans junior varsity team, needless to say, there weren't many highlights. And while those Spartans junior varsity players outscored their opponents by seven points, the varsity had no answer for visiting Eagle Rock, which was methodical in nearly all facets in defeating La Cañada, 25-7, in nonleague action. “We're not executing on varsity. Our JV came in and our JV was against their varsity defense and scored on their first drive,” Spartans first-year Coach James Sims said.

Today she studies under local artist Margot Lennartz. Horn is the mother of Justin, 29, and Josh, 34.

While James Sims has never seen any of the 10 opponents on the La Cañada High football team's schedule this year, the Spartans' new coach won't go into any contest blindly this season. That's because Sims, who coached in Florida before making the move to La Cañada this summer, has been studying La Cañada's opposition by reviewing last year's game film. "That was my focus," said Sims, who inherited this year's schedule from previous coach Dan Yoder, who stepped down in December.

For some, the recent 4.4 quake that rattled many Southlanders out of bed early in the morning was not just another earthquake, but also a reminder to prepare for natural disasters. According to survival expert Christopher Nyerges, an Eagle Rock resident, one must have at least three days of food and water for each member of the family in order to survive after a natural disaster, like a large earthquake or power outage. PHOTOS: Surviving after a major disaster Nyerges shared that tip and more during a Preparedness and Wild Food Walk seminar at Hahamongna Watershed Park in Pasadena on Wednesday, March 19, 2014.

EAGLE ROCK - La Cañada High's girls' basketball's run in the CIF Southern Section Division III-A tournament ended in the semifinals with a road loss to the Eagles of Santa Margarita, who went on to win the III-A title, but that did not end the Spartans' season. La Cañada received an invitation to the CIF State Division III playoffs and got another shot at a squad of champion Eagles on the road, when it drew the Los Angeles City Section Division III champion Eagle Rock Eagles for a opening-round matchup.

EAGLE ROCK - A lot has to go wrong for a team to not only get shut out, but to lose by five touchdowns. For the La Cañada High football team, a lot went wrong against host Eagle Rock on Friday. The Spartans committed three turnovers, had 120 yards in penalties, missed numerous tackles and gave up too many big plays in a 35-0 nonleague defeat. “I could make a hundred excuses,” La Cañada Coach James Sims said. “They just beat our butt.” A microcosm of the evening's mishaps could be cited in consecutive plays in the first quarter.

Schedule-wise, the La Cañada High football team's 2013 season is nearly the exact same as the one before. Second-year Spartans Coach James Sims hopes to see big changes from the team, though. They'll play the same 10 opponents from 2012 with the only changes being the home-and-away shifts and shuffling the order of the Rio Hondo League schedule. "I am sure people will see a much better La Cañada football team because we've had a full year working with them now," said Sims, who's made changes to the passing game and in the weight room to prepare for the new year.
