Lauren Vossler and the Golden West Rustlers held off the Riverside City College Tigers, 12-11, to win the 2013 CCCAA Water Polo State Championship.
The Tigers rallied back from a deficit as big as four points to get within one point and a chance to tie the game on the final possession.
Vossler was named the state tournament’s most valuable player after a four-goal performance against the Tigers.
Megan Guerts scored four goals for the Tigers in the state finals game.
The Tigers finished the season at 22-5 in their first season with Doug Finfrock as head coach.
Finfrock was an assistant coach under former head coach Dave Almquist for a decade.
