Todd Sprague has enjoyed plenty of success in the world of high school water polo. Now, the coach with more than 20 years of experience has come to the La Cañada High boys' water polo team in search of a new opportunity.
"I have had success everywhere I've gone, but everywhere I've gone didn't have a water polo program with a tradition like La Cañada," said Sprague, who was announced as the Spartans new coach in a press release from La Cañada High Athletic Director Craig Franzen Friday. "I've always wondered what I could do with a foundation where the kids knew how to play water polo coming into high school."
Franzen is enthralled to have the 48-year old Sprague at the helm.
"It's absolutely awesome that he wants to come to La Cañada," Franzen said. "He understands the culture of La Cañada — the dedication to academics, the dedication to water polo — he gets it."
