  The NCAA title is the 105th for Stanford Athletics.

LOS ANGELES -- Stanford captured its fourth NCAA title and third in four years on Sunday with a 9-5 victory versus UCLA at Uytengsu Aquatics Center.

The Cardinal (25-1) held UCLA (27-5) scoreless in the second half and went on a 6-0 run during the final 16:19 to overcome a 5-2 deficit. Senior 2-meter Annika Dries scored all three of her goals in the second half, including the eventual game-winner with 4:51 remaining in the contest. Dries was named the tournament's most outstanding player.

The NCAA title is also the 105th for Stanford Athletics, and extends the school's national-best streak to 38 years with at least one NCAA championship.
