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.

WHITTIER - While most teams would probably still be basking in the glory after winning a league championship, the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team went right back to the pool looking to fine tune some areas of their game Friday. After capturing the Pacific League championship for the fifth season in a row on Thursday, Crescenta Valley enjoyed a brief celebration before making the trek to meet host La Serna in a nonleague match Friday. Crescenta Valley passed its final regular-season test before beginning defense of its CIF Southern Section Division V crown, as Ashley Taylor collected a team-high four goals and Elissa Arnold added two goals and four steals to earn a 10-5 victory.

Rebuilding might be the optimal word for the Burbank High and Burroughs girls' water polo teams this season. Burbank has only two returning players - hole/set Abby Glaessner and goalkeeper Jasmine Ellman - and Burroughs has three coming back, drivers Cheyenne Morrison and Sierra Marroquin and goalkeeper Ahsha Earwood. The inexperience on both squads does not mean that each team is lowering expectations. “There is no reason why we can't get first [in the Pacific League]

A season ago, the Burbank High boys' water polo team finished off one of its more successful campaigns in the CIF Southern Section Division V quarterfinals. For the Bulldogs to get there again, they'll need to take a much different and more arduous path. Upon the release Sunday of playoff pairings, the Bulldogs were sent on the road to Whittier, where they'll begin their postseason on Tuesday in the division's only wild card match. Whittier took third in the Del Rio League, while Burbank (10-11)

BURBANK - If the Burbank High boys' water polo team learned anything following its recent home match against Pacific League rival Pasadena, it's that you can't rest on an early lead. Burbank standout Dante Nazarian said that early overconfidence stoked by a 5-1 advantage led to substandard defense, allowing Pasadena to get back into the game. "We became too sure that it was our game, and some of our players were slacking off on defense," Nazarian said. Burbank blew an early four-goal lead in losing to Pasadena, 13-9, on Thursday.

In the final day of play at the fifth annual Burbank High School girls' varsity water polo tournament, both the Bulldogs and Burroughs had notable success, although it was the hosts who had a little better time of it when it was said and done. “I know the girls are happy,” Burroughs first-year coach Michael Singhanate said. “They're not as happy as they'd like to be, but they're happy.” Both squads won their first games on Saturday in matchups of the four third-place finishers in their respective pools, which matched Burbank and Burroughs up in what turned out to be an exciting matchup for both, as the Bulldogs triumphed, 5-4, in sudden-death overtime against the Indians to wrap up the tournament.

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.

In the loss, Burroughs received 21 saves from senior All-CIF goalie Ahsha Earwood.
