Will Kaplanyan make history?

Just how good a season is Hoover High standout Hakop Kaplanyan having?

Well, the Tornadoes boys’ water polo standout, after scoring 11 goals on Monday afternoon in his team’s 17-11 nonleague win against Flintridge Prep has 190 on the season.

With at least three matches left in the regular season and a likely playoff contest, Kaplanyan, an All-CIF and All-Area pick as a freshman last year, is a safe bet to earn himself a spot in the top 10 for all-time, single-season goal scorers in the CIF Southern Section — and he might even have a chance at eclipsing the top spot.

Arcadia’s Scott Langendoen is No. 10 on the list with 196 in 2002. The top spot is held by Alexander Hernandez of Bell Gardens in 2005, when he tallied 226 goals. All of the stats are provided by http://www.cifss.org. A full list of the top 10 appears below.
