Corona del Mar High product Tumua Anae and Newport Harbor alumna Kally Lucas each had key roles Sunday as the USC women's water polo team won the NCAA title, defeating Stanford, 10-9, in the final at San Diego State.
Anae had eight saves for the Trojans (25-3), helping them win their first NCAA crown since 2004. Lucas was one of three USC players with three goals.
Anae, a senior, was named to the All-NCAA Tournament first team.
Newport Harbor product Nicolina McCall and Newport Beach native Chelsea Silvers, who went to Mater Dei, were also on the winning team.
