The top seeded USC men's water polo capped off yet another successful season Sunday with a heart-thumping 12-10 overtime win over No. 2 seed California in the NCAA championship game.

The victory marks the Trojans' third consecutive national title, and sixth overall under the watch of head coach Jovan Vavic.

Congratulations to Vavic and the entire program, which will return every single player with the exception of redshirt junior Mason Hawthorne who graduates in May.

To say the future is bright, may be an understatement. All is well in Troy, at least in the pool.

FIGHT ON!
