Stanford repeats as national champion

2015 NC Women's Water Polo Championship: Championship Day Recap

STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford felt right at home, allowing the national championship to stay at home.

Backed by a raucous crowd at Avery Aquatic Center, Stanford became the first host school to win an NCAA championship while defending its title with a 7-6 victory against UCLA on Sunday evening.

Kiley Neushul converted a penalty shot for the game-winner with 11 seconds remaining, as Stanford (25-2, 6-0 MPSF) captured its fourth NCAA crown in five years and fifth overall in school history.

Neushul finished the contest with five goals while Ashley Grossman added two scores.

The NCAA title is also the 106th won by a Stanford team, and extends the school’s national-best streak of years with at least one NCAA championship to 39, dating back to 1976-77.

Sunday’s contest was a rematch of last year’s NCAA final, in which the Cardinal defeated the Bruins 9-5 in Los Angeles.
