BURBANK - If the Burroughs High girls' water polo team wanted to put a positive stamp on their final regular season match in Pacific League play and keep its chances alive for another CIF postseason berth, it had to overcome a visiting Hoover squad that was still looking for an elusive league victory. Burroughs took care of business against the Tornadoes, smothering them with defensive pressure en route to a 10-3 victory Thursday afternoon. “We've been having issues all season about players letting up on pressure, but this game it stayed together pretty well,” Burroughs first-year coach Mike Singhanate said.

BURBANK - The Burbank High girls' water polo team was sky high when it defeated Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy on Thursday. Not only were the Bulldogs able to notch the victory in the first round of pool play in their own Burbank Tournament, but the win also signified the first of the year for the group. Burbank was hoping to carry over that momentum in a tourney pool-play match later Thursday against Mayfield. However, the physical play of the Cubs threw the Bulldogs off of their game and Mayfield was able to notch an 11-4 victory.
