BURBANK — It was not too long ago that the Burroughs High girls water polo team was in the same boat that Pasadena finds itself this season.
The Bulldogs have a young team with just four seniors. The squad is still finding its way and still developing as a unit.
The Indians are young as well, but they do have a few key experienced players from last season’s CIF Southern Section Division V quarterfinal squad.
That experience was evident Tuesday in a Pacific League match against host Pasadena. Burroughs played solid defense and overcame a slow start to notch an 11-5 victory.
The win keeps Burroughs (10-7, 3-0 in league) undefeated in league play.
“It’ a nice way for us to start league, with the three wins,” Burroughs High Coach Danny Garcia said. “The team has been playing well in league. But we have a very tough match with Glendale on Thursday. That’s one that we need to win.”
