Albane Valenzuela turns professional, reflects on remaining months at Stanford

The Evian Resort Golf Club sits among the foothills of the French Alps overlooking picturesque Lake Geneva. The city is best known, however, as host of the annual Evian Championship — one of five majors on the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s (LPGA) tournament circuit. The culture of high caliber golf certainly rubbed off on Stanford senior Albane Valenzuela, who grew up just 45 minutes from the lakeside resort.

Casey Toohill named 2019 William V. Campbell Trophy Finalist

On Wednesday the National Football Foundation (NFF) named fifth-year outside linebacker and co-captain Casey Toohill one of 12 finalists for the William V. Campbell Trophy. The trophy recognizes the best scholar-athlete in all of collegiate football and honors academic success, football performance and exemplary leadership.

From the Farm to France: Three former Stanford players prepare for Women’s World Cup

The eighth FIFA Women's World Cup is set to kick off this summer in France and run from June 7 to July 7. Games will be played in nine venues across the soccer-fevered country, which is the reigning FIFA Men’s World Cup championship. The stage is set now, however, for the world’s female stars to take the spotlight, and the United States — the reigning champion and 2-1 favorites to repeat — certainly has a target on its back.

Zhang: Athletics and motherhood are not mutually exclusive

As we take time this weekend to celebrate Mother’s Day, I was shocked to see the lack of attention that major sports media gave to mothers (and women in general). Browsing sports news websites Sunday morning, I noticed the only times women were even mentioned on the home pages were the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and Jessica Andrade’s strawweight victory, while in contrast, men had hundreds of headlines. I’m not trying to discredit the male athletes’ achievements and their newsworthiness, but the lack of mothers on this day in particular perpetuates a dangerous narrative: motherhood and athletics are mutually exclusive.

Men’s rowing head coach Craig Amerkhanian announces retirement mid-season

Thursday afternoon, Stanford Athletics announced the retirement of Farwell Family Director of Men’s Rowing Craig Amerkhanian. The announcement comes as the third departure of a member of Stanford Athletics this week alone; Kissick Family Director of Sports Performance Shannon Turley was fired on Monday, and Goldman Family Director of Men’s Swimming Ted Knapp also announced…

MPSF honors five ahead of conference championship

In preparation for the first round of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Men’s Volleyball Tournament (MPSF), which will begin on Saturday, the conference released its All-MPSF Volleyball Selections yesterday, April 11. No. 8 Stanford (15-10, 6-6 MPSF) and No. 12 Brigham Young (12-11, 6-6 MPSF) both have five selections and are tied for the most.

Men’s volleyball prepares for must-win MPSF Quarterfinal against Brigham Young

After the best regular season start since 2016, No. 8 Stanford (15-10, 6-6 MPSF) men’s volleyball will tackle their next challenge this Saturday: the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Quarterfinal. The MPSF is debatably the most competitive collegiate men’s volleyball conference in the nation, so the Cardinal must deliver against No. 12 Brigham Young (12-11, 6-6 MPSF) this weekend if they hope to prolong their season and potentially bring home a title.

Men’s volleyball travels to Grand Canyon for final regular season game

This Saturday, Stanford men’s volleyball (14-10, MPSF 5-6) will travel to Phoenix, Arizona for their final regular season game of the year, where they will play Grand Canyon University (12-14, MPSF 2-8). This will be the Cardinal’s final chance to boost their Mountain Pacific Sports Federation record before postseason play kicks off. Stanford is currently…

Cardinal prepare for TJ DeFalco, take on defending national champions

Coming off of a closely contested double-header versus No. 10 Brigham Young (8-5, 4-3 MPSF), No. 8 Stanford men’s volleyball (12-6, 4-3 MPSF) now looks to the most formidable opponent of them all, nearly perfect No. 1 Long Beach State (15-0, 2-0 Big West). Although unlikely, even winning a single set against the reigning national champions on Friday will be admirable for the Cardinal.
