LA CAÑADA - Down by 14 points after one quarter and 13 at the half against a team that was shooting lights out, the odds against the La Cañada High girls' basketball squad making Saturday evening's CIF Southern Section Division III-A second round playoff game competitive seemed pretty long. Yet, not only did the host Spartans rally, but they salvaged their season thanks to several key offensive rebounds and a gutsy and gambling defense that produced 21 second-half turnovers, which helped turned a frantic comeback into a thrilling 44-42 victory.

La Cañada High's girls' basketball team has been at or atop the CIF Southern Section Division 3-A rankings all season, and that will continue going into the postseason. Though it was a little lower than previous years, the Spartans earned the No. 4 seed in the CIF Southern Section playoffs on Sunday, only to have that changed Tuesday. The Spartans (21-5) were bumped up to No. 3, flipping positions with South Pasadena, who forfeited a league game and its half of the Rio Hondo League title to the Spartans, now the league's outright champion.

From their pulpits of stone the music of mission bells played heavily and with a melody so sweet their music fell upon my ears. Crafted by artisans from the Netherlands the bells from Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa beckoned the faithful to morning mass. The bells are the voice of the mission and were an important part of mission life. They announced reveille, Mass, breakfast, the start of work, lunch, siesta, afternoon work, dinner, and signaled a time to retire. Early mission life has dissipated but I sensed a dark reality still exists defying preconceived assumptions that early Spanish influence on native peoples was of a benevolent nature.
