Training camp for any sport can be an arduous, fatiguing and painful experience for an athlete, but for 14 members of the La Cañada High boys' varsity water polo team it turned out to be something they will never forget. The team traveled to Budapest, Hungary last month and for 10 days not only honed their skills in a pool in the nearby town of Cegled, but had an opportunity to see and do things that few Americans get the chance to do. The lucky 14 athletes who enjoyed the Eastern European sights and cuisine were John Rowe, Eric Shaw, Devon Borisoff, Spencer Borisoff, Caleb Greig, Wes Lewis and Doug McNeese.

LA CAÑADA - A loss is a loss. But in defeat, a team going in the right direction can sometimes find silver linings in the clouds of gray. The La Cañada High girls' water polo team fell to San Marino, 8-4, at home in a Rio Hondo League match Thursday, but the game was closer than the final score indicated. Not to mention, the match against the Titans came two days after the Spartans suffered a 22-2 league defeat against South Pasadena. "Coming back from a 22-2 loss, how we lost to South Pas, it's hard to want to play the next day," Spartans Coach Dave Brown said.

A season that already included a Rio Hondo League championship and a run to the quarterfinals of the playoffs for the La Cañada High boys' water polo team added a few more prizes. The Spartans were honored by the Rio Hondo League recently as senior Peter Loakes was named the league's most valuable player, while six teammates were selected to either the first and second teams or honorable mention list. “This is an award I really wanted to win and I knew that it was going to come down to our games against South Pasadena and Pierce Deamer,” Loakes said.

LA CAÑADA - Growth appears to be the operative word in regards to the city of La Cañada's three girls' water polo teams as the season nears its start. At La Cañada High, the Spartans welcomed a new coach in former assistant Davey Brown, who replaced Kristen Dronberger. “We're going to have a whole new coaching strategy and I really think we can compete in league and finish second or third,” Brown said. “We're trying to give South Pasadena a run for their money this year.” Competitiveness was an issue for the Spartans last season, as the team finished with a 3-12 overall record and was fifth in the Rio Hondo League, off the pace of league champion South Pasadena (13-8, 8-0 in league)

CORONA - An emotionally-charged boys' water polo match that included several exclusions, two ejections and a yellow card also consisted of two fundamental truths for La Cañada High on Saturday afternoon. The visiting No. 7-ranked Spartans surrendered five straight goals early and never recovered, falling to second-seeded Corona Santiago, 11-6, in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. With the defeat, the Rio Hondo League champion Spartans concluded their season with a 21-10 record, while the Big VIII League champion Sharks (23-8)

PASADENA - If there had been a glaring weakness for the La Cañada High boys' water polo team this season, perhaps the unanimous answer from the squad would have been second quarters. In losses to divisional foes Mira Costa and Martin Luther King, as well as in other defeats, poor second quarters often segued to setbacks. In keeping with the theme, the second quarter did indeed play another big role for the Spartans. However, in breaking with recent tradition, La Cañada outscored visiting Redondo Union by five goals during the seven-minute frame en route to a 17-12 win in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs on Wednesday afternoon at Pasadena City College.

RIVERSIDE - Just when it looked like the story on the Flintridge Prep boys' water polo team's season was coming to a close, the Rebels sent in a rewrite. Down four goals on the road in their CIF Southern Section Division V opener to the Riverside Poly team that ended their 2012 season, the Rebels were on the ropes. They climbed back in it, though, boosted by a third-quarter explosion and nine-goal night from Ethan Vandeventer for an 18-14 victory Wednesday. Not only was it win-or-go-home, but win-or-goodbye for 10 senior Rebels who will not be back next season.

TEMPLE CITY - There wasn't much of a celebration on the pool deck shortly after the La Cañada High boys' water polo team wrapped up the Rio Hondo League championship Thursday. A few greetings took place, but it's become the norm of late for the Spartans to rule the league. La Cañada received four first-half goals from Leo Neat to register a 12-7 road victory against Temple City and clinch the championship outright. “To win league is always good, but it's expected for us,” said La Cañada first-year Coach Christian Flores, who saw his team improve to 18-8, 7-0 in league.

SOUTH PASADENA - While nothing is yet official, the Rio Hondo League boys' water polo race has become a foregone conclusion. That's why there was plenty of hand-slapping and jubilation on the side of La Cañada High and coinciding disappointing for host South Pasadena, as the Spartans rallied from an early three-goal deficit to defeat the Tigers, 13-7, on Thursday afternoon. With the victory, the CIF Southern Section Division III fourth - ranked Spartans (12-7, 5-0) swept the season series, 2-0, against runner-up No. 7 South Pasadena (12-9, 3-2)
