When teams play in the preseason, the games test what each team is capable of doing. In the case of Head Coach Tamar Hill and the La Cañada varsity girls? basketball squad Tuesday evening at Harvard-Westlake, it was a challenge going up against a team who had won five of their last seven league championships. Hill and her team could not rebound from a rather shaky start of the contest and dropped a 49-37 loss to the Wolverines. Overall, the Spartans now post a 3-2 record, and Hill felt that the team has to play one game to beat their opponents, and not a Jekyll-and-Hyde, on-again-off-again seesaw game.
