After a tough season with injuries and missing the playoffs, the La Cañada High School varsity girls’ volleyball team is well on its way back to being one of the most competitive programs in the area.
The Spartans (4-2 overall record) won four of six matches at the Lakewood Molten Classic and displayed a bond that will only help the team in the future.
