Women's Water Polo Goes For #113

May 10 -- The UCLA women's water polo team will compete for the school's 113th championship tonight...

After beating California 9-5 in a semifinal match on Saturday, the UCLA Women's water polo team will take on Stanford tonight with the national championship on the line.

If UCLA wins, it would be the 113th overall championship for the school. The Bruins have been historically dominant in women's water polo, advancing to the title match in 14 out of the 21 years that there has been a national tournament in water polo. The Bruins have seven NCAA titles in the sport, and 11 overall national titles (there were tournaments before the NCAA Tournament that were not sanctioned by the NCAA).

UCLA was led against the Bears by junior attacker Rachel Fattal, who scored three goals in the match. Juniors Kodi Hill and Alys Williams also netted two goals apiece.

The Bruins will be looking for revenge after last season, when UCLA lost 9-5 to Stanford in the national championship match.
