Chase Borisoff of the La Cañada High boys' water polo team has always had an uncanny ability to make the perfect pass that sets up a teammate with a clear shot at goal. "The thing I love about Chase is he's probably the least selfish person on the team," La Cañada senior driver Johnny Louk said. "He has different connections with everyone on the team. He has such a great passing ability that he will set me up with an easy shot with some amazing pass and make me look good when it was really all him. " Borisoff credits that ability - a byproduct of his superior pool vision - to time he spent out of the pool, not in it. It's a talent that's come from nearly a decade's worth of time watching his two brothers, Devon and Spencer, play in the same pool he now spends a large chunk of his time in at La Cañada High.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Rivalry games create intensity, the final game in league play with finishing position still not set creates intensity and the desire to carry on a legacy creates intensity. All three factors were in play as South Pasadena High went up against host La Cañada in boys water polo Thursday afternoon. It was the final Rio Hondo game for the two rivals, with a victory for the Tigers cementing them into second place, while a win for the already league-champion Spartans meant a third straight undefeated Rio Hondo campaign.

La Canada 10, Servite 9: Things haven't come easy for the Spartans at Pasadena City College this season and that continued Wednesday evening in a narrow one-goal victory over the Friars. Symeon Stefan scored a team-high six goals to lead La Cañada, which had a four-goal lead (10-6) with about five minutes to go and were up three with about three minutes left, but nearly saw it slip away. “We had a few bad turnovers and we gave up some counter-attack goals, which you just can't do there,” said La Cañada Coach Devon Borisoff, whose team also just squeaked by Mira Costa, 11-10, at PCC on Oct. 6. Chase Borisoff drew six ejections and had four steals and three assists for the Spartans (15-6)

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - When the La Cañada High boys' water polo team saw its five-goal lead trimmed to three in about a minute and a half, the Spartans realized it was time to put their Rio Hondo League game with Temple City out of reach. Chase Borisoff led La Cañada in that effort, as he scored three straight goals in a matter of 1:16 to guide the Spartans on a nine-goal run to close out the quarter. Temple City managed to improve on its 15-goal loss to La Cañada earlier this year, but still came nowhere close to a victory on the Spartans' senior day Tuesday, 19-9.

SOUTH PASADENA - Despite facing its first serious competition within the Rio Hondo League, there were so seismic shifts in the league standings and no upset Tuesday afternoon for the La Cañada High boys water polo team. The CIF Southern Section Division top-ranked Spartans started strong, overcame a power play disadvantage and held back a mini-rally from the host Tigers in a 14-8 victory. “There were way too many kickouts for my liking and that's definitely something that we've got to correct there,” Spartans Coach Devon Borisoff.

TEMPLE CITY — With the decision well in hand by halftime, La Cañada High boys' water polo Coach Devon Borisoff gave the Spartans another game within the game with Temple City to win. In the driver's seat with a nine-goal lead, the first-year Spartans coach said he didn't want the Rams scoring two goals the rest of the way. La Cañada couldn't meet Borisoff's goal, but still impressed with a 20-5 victory at Temple City Thursday. "I try to give them little goals like that otherwise we're up by 15 goals and they can lose focus pretty easily,' said Borisoff, whose team improved to 9-6, 2-0 in league.

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.

Alden Geller scored four times for the Spartans. “This is huge for us, we want to enter the playoffs as the No. 1 ranked team and this is a giant, giant step toward that,” Borisoff said.
