Following a disappointing weekend in southern California, the Stanford men’s basketball team is back on the Farm.

Men’s Basketball: Victory in Tempe

The win for the Card (9-4, 2-0) is particularly impressive because of Arizona State’s overwhelming success on its home court in Tempe.

Sunday afternoon was an emotional time for the members of the Stanford women’s gymnastics team, as they competed at home for the final time this season and celebrated five seniors who are nearing the ends of their collegiate gymnastics careers. Though head coach Kristen Smyth used to introduce her graduating class on Senior Day with a hand-held microphone, she knew that this year, emotions would make the speeches difficult to get through. So before this weekend’s quad meet victory...

Baseball: Card Hooks ‘Horns

Pitching will play a huge role in this weekend’s series against Texas for both the Card and the Longhorns, who are coming off a 7-2 win over Dallas Baptist on Wednesday and a series loss to New Mexico last weekend.

W. Gymnastics: Card hangs tough, but falls to Oregon State

As the opening month of the Stanford women’s gymnastics season came to a close, the team hoped to capitalize on the major success of its first four meets in last weekend’s matchup with Oregon State and Seattle Pacific.
