The Burroughs High boys' water polo team has promised a trip to the playoffs. Burbank, the Indians' crosstown rival, has guaranteed a disciplined and strengthened program. The Indians and Bulldogs are full of optimism heading into the season, with Burroughs eyeing a postseason berth for the first time in eight years and Burbank refueling under first-year Coach Kristina Garcia. Burroughs Coach Danny Garcia - no relation to his Burbank counterpart - provided his thoughts about the fate of both programs.

BURROUGHS HIGH - The Burroughs High and Burbank girls' water polo teams were untested in their respective Pacific League openers Tuesday. The results were two lopsided victories. The Indians and Bulldogs braced for a bigger challenge when the squads met Thursday in their annual rivalry showdown. Burroughs overcame a sluggish start and began to dominate after the first five minutes. The Indians built a lead and goalkeeper Ahsha Earwood kept the Bulldogs from mounting any kind of a comeback in securing a 10-4 victory at Burroughs.

BURBANK - While it's clear that both the Burbank High and La Cañada girls' water polo programs are in the early stages of building their teams up this season, Thursday afternoon's nonleague match was evidence that the Spartans have clearly improved from a season ago, but it's the Bulldogs who have an undefeated start to the season as a platform to move forward. Bolstered by a key goal from Lala Herpetian late in the match and a defensive stop by the sophomore utility player, the Bulldogs staved off the visiting Spartans, 5-3, at Burbank High.

BURBANK - The Glendale High and Burroughs girls' water polo teams were entrenched in a defensive battle in the opening minutes of Thursday's Pacific League first-place matchup, with the Nitros limiting the Indians to a single shot attempt in the first quarter. But while the Burroughs shooters were finding it difficult to score, the Indians could take solace in the fact that they had All-CIF Southern Section standout Ahsha Earwood in goal. They were just hoping Earwood could keep them in the game until the offense found its rhythm.

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.

Despite finishing second in the Pacific League behind the CIF Southern Section Division V tournament's top seed in Crescenta Valley High, Burroughs did not exactly get a favorable draw when Sunday's playoff pairings were released. But Indians Coach Danny Garcia finds himself “pretty happy” with playing Los Padres League champion Lompoc Cabrillio in the first round on Wednesday at 5 p.m., but was disappointed that it will be on the road. “I kinda assumed we would be home because we played at home last year after we finished second,” said Garcia, whose Indians were one of four second-place teams out of six in the division that got road matches.

PASADENA - With seemingly every element against them, including a hostile road crowd and an equally-determined if not desperate opponent, the Burroughs High boys' water polo team couldn't have picked a more urgent and appropriate time for a signature effort. Despite surrendering a three-goal lead to open the fourth quarter, the visiting Indians never fell behind and instead surged forward as the Pacific League's fourth and final guaranteed playoff participant after defeating Pasadena, 11-10, on Friday afternoon on senior day. The victory clinched the Indians (12-5 overall, 3-3 in league)

BURBANK - As has been the case in Pacific League matches throughout the season, it's never quite clear just what Burbank High boys' water polo team will be showcased in the pool. On Wednesday afternoon against rival Burroughs, the Bulldogs showed just how dominant they could be - in the second quarter, at least. That was before they squandered a five-goal lead with just more than three minutes to play, only to hold off the pesky Indians for a nailbiting 13-12 win. “We weren't really focused in the end, I guess we relaxed a little,” said Burbank's Dante Nazarian, who had a team-high four goals.

WHITTIER - The Burbank High boys' water polo season endured a wild conclusion to its 2013 season. Essentially, the Bulldogs lost their CIF Southern Section Division V wild card playoff game against Whittier twice. The Cardinals seemingly defeated Burbank by a goal in overtime. Each team vacated the pool, Whittier posed for celebratory pictures and the Bulldogs showered and toweled off. Then word came that a mistake had been made. Whittier's Jose Avila had received his third exclusion 25 seconds into the first of two three-minute overtime periods.
