Field hockey heads to Sacramento

No. 21 Stanford (10-4, 2-0, America East) travels to Sacramento for a battle against Pacific (8-6, 2-1, America East) this Friday.

Despite some star performances, the Tigers’ record has been relatively mixed. On the other hand, Stanford has won 10 of their past 11 games with excellent plays from both veterans and young-guns.
