BURROUGHS HIGH - The Burroughs High girls' water polo team was able to accomplish a rare feat Tuesday afternoon in its Pacific League opener against Arcadia.

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]

BURBANK - Down three goals early in the first quarter against second-seeded La Serna High, Burbank's boys' water polo team looked like it was on track to get blown out rather than pull off an upset. But the underdogs rallied right back. The hopes of an upset carried on through the midway point of the third period, as the Bulldogs were down by just one, but a three-goal La Serna run proved to be the difference in sending the No. 2 seed ahead to the semifinals and Burbank to its season's conclusion after a 14-10 loss on Saturday morning in the CIF Southern Section Division V quarterfinals at Burbank High.
