Once Jason Falitz got the green light, he wasn't about to stop.
With the blessing of his coach and the cooperation of his teammates, Falitz scored a state-record 26 goals to lead Burroughs High over Burbank, 38-1, in an Almont League water polo game Friday at Burroughs.
Falitz, a senior who scored 195 goals last season--third-highest season total in state history--broke the record of 24 set by Kevin Parkes of Colton in 1979 against Palm Springs.
"Since last year, I've been looking forward to getting a chance to break this record," said Falitz, who has 170 goals this season. "Thankfully, my teammates gave me the chance to do it today and it all worked out."
