In the aftermath of a season that was one of the program's most successful ever, the Burbank High boys' water polo team was rewarded for its accomplishment with three selections to the All-CIF Southern Section Division V team.
Senior standout Zack Card was a first-team selection, while fellow senior co-captain Sean Savoy was a second-team pick and goalkeeper Derek Baer nabbed a third-team spot, with the selections officially released Monday.
“That was my goal,” said Card, who heard about his selection on Friday, of making the All-CIF team. “I think it's really set in how awesome it is that I was chosen.
“I was really excited.”
Card boasted team-highs in goals, assists and steals, as he was clearly a catalyst on both sides of the ball, as the Bulldogs finished second in the Pacific League before defeating Arlington in the opening round of the playoffs to advance to the quarterfinals.
