After their 11th consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament, the USC women's water polo team concluded the 2014 season with six players earning All-American honors. 
 
 
All-star junior Monica Vavic earned yet another spot on the All-American First Team for the third straight year after finishing the season with 75 goals, placing her in the elite group of just five other Women of Troy who have racked up three All-American First Team selections. Vavic is also a three-time All-MPSF First Team honoree and earned a spot on the NCAA All-Tournament First Team after contributing eight goals for the Trojans in the NCAA tourney.

 
Standout senior goalie Flora Bolonyai earned All-American Second Team honors capturing her fourth career All-American award - a feat that has only been done by five other Women of Troy in USC women's water polo history. While Bolonyai left her mark in the water, setting USC's all-time career saves record with 895 stops, she also flourished in the classroom as she is one of six Trojans on the honor roll for 2014.
 
Joining Bolonyai on the All-American Second Team is fellow senior Kaleigh Gilchrist while junior Eike Daube, freshman Stephania Haralabidis and senior Colleen O'Donnell all earned Honorable Mention recognition.
