Stanford wins 37th consecutive Big Splash

It doesn’t look like there’s any team in this country that can stop Stanford women’s water polo right now.

With the Pac-12 Networks in the house for the annual installment of the Big Splash, No. 1 Stanford (20-1, 6-0 MPSF) claimed its 37th consecutive victory over rival No. 4 California (17-7, 2-4) by a score of 9-6 on Senior Day at Avery Aquatic Center. In doing so, the Cardinal defeated their fourth top-five opponent in their last five matches to end their regular season on perhaps the most dominant streak in the nation.
