GLENDALE — For all the success that's been achieved of late by the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team, Coach Pete Loporchio could only marvel at what the future might hold.
The Falcons captured the Pacific League championship last year and advanced to the quarterfinals for the third consecutive season. While past teams featured a talented cast of athletes, the Falcons weren't always blessed with a wealth of depth.

Yes, they return Kim Fraisse, the reigning All-Area Player of the Year and other important contributors to the lineup, but depth should play a vital role in how the Falcons fare.
"We have a talented group coming back and it's the deepest team I've had at CV," said Loporchio, whose team went 26-5 and 8-0 in league last season. "We have a talented core coming back, but we will be able to bring up some of our JV players up from a team that went 18-2.
