For Mike Scott, water polo has been a constant since the fifth grade. That was when Scott abandoned soccer, volleyball and swimming in favor of the age group water polo program in La Cañada?a decision neither he nor his twin brother Max ever regretted. Since then, Scott has spent many hours in the pool en route to the pinnacle of his high school polo career, this year?s CIF Southern Section Division III championship game. Playing against Montebello for the championship for the third year running, Scott scored twice in the first quarter and again in the third to help his team to an 11-8 win to secure the Spartans?
