Boys Water Polo All-Area: Pas Poly in good hands with Pray; South Pasadena’s Echeverria coach of the year.

Ryan Katsuyama was unsure of the direction that his boys water polo team would take.

Heading into the 2009 season, he had reason to worry. Pasadena Poly was losing Tommy Gilfillan, its all-time scoring leader and one of the top career and single-season scorers in the CIF-Southern Section.

The Panthers were coming off a Prep League title and a berth in the CIF-SS semifinals.

Katsuyama had little to worry about. Pasadena Poly did not repeat as Prep League champion, but as a second-place team it advanced the CIF-SS quarterfinals. The Panthers went farther than any other west San Gabriel Valley team.

They also found a replacement for Gilfillan, a player they can rely on for the next two years. Henry Pray broke Gilfillan’s sophomore school record for goals, earned All-CIF first-team honors and has been selected Star-News Player of the Year.
