Stanford Tops Cal to Win NCAA Women's Water Polo Title

Sophomore Annika Dries scored five goals and senior goalie Amber Oland made 11 saves as the top-ranked Stanford women's water polo team downed No. 2 Cal, 9-5, to capture its second national championship in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Stanford, which also won the title in 2002, has won 31 straight games against the Golden Bears.

Dries, who led the Cardinal with 58 goals during the regular season, was limited to two goals in Stanford's first two NCAA tournament games. Today, she had three by halftime to help stake the Cardinal to a 4-1 lead and was named tournament MVP. Dries may be celebrating with a good piece of chocolate and a hot cup of tea.

Congratulations to head coach John Tanner and the entire team for bringing home title No. 101!
