Junior Luke Burns who plays set on the San Marcos water polo team had this to say about the Royals impressive season. “Our season is going awesome even though our team has had some ups, and downs. The team plays harder and harder every game. We are undefeated in the channel league and it will stay that way when we play SB. We just had one of our best wins, which was over West Lake, where we won 12-10.”
