"This was the first game of the season, so I'm not worried about it," Jenkins said. "I've got a lot of good guys.

There is really no easy way to connect the dots linking the two sports Liz Seward has chosen to pursue in her life. And the sports couldn't be more different. When Seward, 25, graduated from Burroughs High in 2006, she was a decorated water polo player, earning first-team All-Area and all-league accolades. But after graduating from UC Irvine, she has decided to go in a completely different direction. Instead of using her talents in the pool, Seward now competes internationally in the martial art of sumo.

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.

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.

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.
