W. Water Polo: Champs again, Card holds off USC in NCAA final

The defending-champion Cardinal (26-2) got a late goal from senior driver Pallavi Menon and 15 saves from junior goalie Kate Baldoni to edge the Trojans 6-4 and capture Stanford’s third national championship in women’s water polo and 103rd overall. Baldoni’s 29 saves to just nine goals allowed over the tournament won her MVP honors, while Menon capped her Stanford career with seven goals over the weekend.
