Ranked within the top four of the CIF Southern Section Division III rankings for the entire season, the La Cañada High boys' water polo team toppled from its spot at fourth all the way to seventh upon the release of playoff pairings on Sunday morning.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - While the result was a lot different for both sides, the goal was the same in what was a blowout victory for the La Cañada High boys' water polo team and a lopsided defeat for San Marino, 22-6, in Tuesday's Rio Hondo League opener. Both the Titans and Spartans called timeouts in the fourth quarter with the result already well in hand to run plays and improve their squads with the rest of the league season and CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs in mind.

La Cañada High School water polo parents might have longed to jump in the school pool as temperatures topped 100 degrees on Sept. 15, but instead they dutifully worked a rummage sale nearby that raised nearly $500. Deb Stolmack, mother of an eighth-grade water polo player, Jake, and a high school softball pitcher, Alyssa, was a key organizer of the event and said survival required “a lot of water and a sense of humor.” Water polo parents and members of the community donated items, including a ton of sports equipment, to make the sale a success.

Hoping to hit its stride in the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs, the La Cañada High boys' water polo team took a confident first step in Wednesday night's first-round match against San Juan Hills at Burbank High. Led by six goals from Chase Borisoff and three apiece from Symeon Stefan and Bryce Hopkins the host Spartans lived up to their top seeding in a 17-7 win that was never close after the first quarter. “This is the first round and we're the No. 1 seed, so we're expected to win this game,” La Cañada Coach Devon Borisoff said.

IRVINE - With its offense having become a hopeless cause by the fourth quarter, defense became the saving grace for the La Cañada High boys' water polo team in its CIF Southern Section Division III semifinal match against Palos Verdes on Wednesday at William J. Woollett Aquatics Center in Irvine. The top-seeded Spartans took a three-goal lead into the fourth after leading by more than twice as much at one point, and only scored once in the final period, after doing the same in the third, but held the Sea Kings to just one goal of their own over the final 8:39 to hang on for an 11-8 win. “We played great defense today, all around it was a full team effort on all fronts,” said La Cañada Coach Devon Borisoff, who got 16 saves from goalkeeper Jeff Lee, as well as four goals apiece from Symeon Stefan and Alden Geller.

The La Canada High and Flintridge Prep boys' water polo teams both had a lot to celebrate this past season. Along with doing well in their respective leagues, the squads also enjoyed productive results in the CIF Southern Section playoffs in their separate divisions. The Spartans and Rebels added to their season accomplishments Monday when the All-CIF selections were released. While La Cañada boasted five of its players honored with All-CIF nods in Division III, Flintridge Prep garnered three selections in Division V. Making the first team for the Spartans were senior utilities Chase Borisoff and Symeon Stefan, while senior driver Alden Geller and senior hole/set Bryce Hopkins were named to the second team and junior 2-meter defender Peter Loaks made the third team.

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.

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.
