No. 15 Stanford field hockey (6-5, 1-0 AEC) suffered a 1-3 loss to No. 21 Wake Forest (4-5, 0-1 ACC) and an 0-1 loss to No. 2 Duke (8-1, 0-1 ACC) this past Friday and Sunday, respectively. The Cardinal's tour of North Carolina brought on tough battles and even tougher decisions, as Stanford just barely dropped the ball against the Demon Deacons and could almost taste a tie against the Blue Devils in the second half of Sunday's match.

Season Recap: Wrestling

Mapping Stanford: Stanfordia

If you’re lucky enough to board a ship that can cross the great waters, the first piece of Stanfordia you’ll ever lay your eyes on is the coastline of Oval Bay.

Wrestling brings home first Pac-12 Championship, falls short at NCAA Championships

Stanford men's wrestling (9-4, 2-1 Pac-12) concluded its season on March 21 at the NCAA Championships in Pittsburgh. Although no Cardinal managed to place at the tournament, and only redshirt sophomore Nathan Traxler came in as a top-10 seed, Stanford has had a season like no other — smashing records, claiming titles and transforming into a team that will never be forgotten in the annals of Pac-12 wrestling history.

Huskies continue to struggle against Stanford women’s basketball

Closing out the regular season, Stanford women's basketball (25-4, 15-3 Pac-12) demolished Washington (9-20, 2-15 Pac-12) at Alaska Airlines Arena yesterday. To a silent crowd of 2760, the 72-53 result marked Stanford's sixth consecutive win after losing horribly to the apparently indomitable No. 3 Oregon (27-3, 16-2 Pac-12). As the Cardinal head into the quarterfinals, this recent flurry of wins has placed the squad back at a desired tempo.

Mapping Stanford: Puddly places on campus

I spent my Saturday night like any other Saturday night, really. I got ready around 5:00 p.m., left my dorm around 6 p.m. and started recording the locations of puddles around campus. No, not really. I’m definitely an odd person, but I don’t think I am so odd that I would do this every Saturday…
