USC wins the 2021 NCAA beach volleyball championship


Southern Cal bested UCLA 3-1 on Sunday to capture the school’s third beach volleyball national championship.

Wins by USC’s pairings of Hallgren and Harward, as well as Graudina and Kraft, set the team up for the deciding dual.

USC’s Scoles and Slater ultimately sealed the deal for the Trojans with their victory over UCLA’s pairing of Monkhouse and Newberry.

The Trojans’ win snapped UCLA’s two-year title streak after taking home the NCAA trophy in 2018 and 2019. USC dominated all tournament, only dropping one dual point to the reigning champs in the final.
