BURBANK — The members of the Burroughs High boys’ water polo team just wanted to get into the pool this week and face an opponent to begin their season — any opponent.
Under the direction of a new coach, the Indians were finally able to kick off their campaign Monday, rolling to an easy nonleague victory against Mark Keppel.
Burroughs looked to build on that success Wednesday when it hosted Monrovia in a nonleague contest. After a slow start, the Indians were able to create separation in the second quarter, led by a solid defensive effort and poor shooting from the Wildcats.
The end result was a fairly easy 13-4 victory for the Indians.
“We don’t want to take any teams for granted and we want to play hard against everyone,” said first-year Indians Coach Michael Singhanate, a 2008 Burroughs graduate. “Everything goes with our players, the success and the wins. They have been working very hard.”
