Preview: The West Hills Wolfpack (5-2) take a road trip to La Mesa to take on the powerhouse Helix Highlanders (6-1) in a Grossmont-Hills League matchup Friday. Helix is looking to extend their 5 game winning streak, while the Wolfpack are looking to get back into their winning ways after a loss to Steele Canyon last week.
West Hills, coached by Casey Ash, are having a decent season in comparison to others. With only 2 losses, they have reason to be optimistic about the future of their team. It is tough for anyone to face Helix, but it will be a good game nonetheless. This is the third league game that West Hills has had, and it will continue the next couple weeks. This means that each win or loss makes or breaks the standings and the season.
The Highlanders currently are ranked number 17 in the state and number 2 here in San Diego only behind Mission Hills. A team flanked with top players like Isaac Taylor-Stuart, Rashad Scott, Carson Baker, and Isaiah Wooden to name a few and back by head coach Robbie Owens. They are a fore to be reckoned with and one that will be looking to keep the streak alive.
