Defense to propel Cardinal through MPSFs

With the postseason now upon us, a famous sports mantra comes to mind: defense wins championships. For the Stanford women’s water polo team, this is no exception.

Water polo bounces back with two wins

Today held a lot of potential for No. 2 Stanford women’s water polo: potential to bounce back, to right the ship and, most importantly, to win after suffering their first loss of the season last weekend to now-No. 1 UCLA.
