UCLA, UC Irvine bring home NCAA championships
The UCLA women's water polo team upset rival USC, 5-4, to win its fifth straight NCAA title and 11th overall. The Bruins own a collective 104 NCAA team titles, tops in the nation. It was the last game for coach Adam Krikorian, who will become the U.S. Women's Water Polo National Team coach. He will also continue serving as a coach for the UCLA men's team.
UC Irvine also won a national title by beating USC last weekend, with the Anteaters' 3-2 victory earning their second NCAA title in men's volleyball in the last three years. In all sports, UC Irvine has now collected 26 NCAA titles.
