Friday marks an exciting day for Stanford athletics because for the first time since 2013, the softball team (32-18, 8-13 Pac-12) will be competing in the postseason. After years of rebuild and mediocrity, the team is finally one of the most exciting to watch amongst Stanford sports.
This weekend was a predictably tough one for the softball team (32-18, 8-13 Pac-12) as they were swept on the road against the No. 2 University of Washington (45-7, 20-4 Pac-12).
