The La Cañada High School varsity boys’ water polo team’s season recently came to an end, with the Spartans narrowly missing the CIF playoffs.
Under fifth-year head coach Gil Millanes, LCHS finished fourth in the Rio Hondo League with a 3-5 record (9-11 overall).
Despite missing the postseason, La Cañada ended its season on a high note by defeating visiting San Marino 13-12 in a league game on Oct. 27. It was a nice bounce-back performance after LCHS dropped its match at South Pasadena, 18-11, on Oct. 26.
South Pasadena and Temple City each finished with 7-1 league records and shared the league championship.
