Stanford athletes to watch in 2018-2019

The end of a sports season can be a sad and upsetting time. There are no games to watch, wins to celebrate or losses to mourn. It is an unsettlingly empty feeling. As a Stanford sports fan, what are we to do when no sports seasons are in progress? Are we supposed to reflect on the four national championships we won last year? Reflection only takes us so far before we crave the beginning of a new season. Are we supposed to watch professional sports? In the mid-summer months, we have nothing to watch but meaningless midseason baseball games and the NBA Summer League, the latter of which is an especially miserable way to spend a summer day.

Women’s tennis smashes Pacific Northwest

No. 22 Stanford women’s tennis (14-3, 8-0 Pac-12) swept their Pacific Northwest tour this weekend, clinching their ninth and 10th consecutive meet wins against No. 37 Washington State (20-5, 5-4) on Friday and the University of Washington (14-10, 4-5) on Saturday. The Cardinal defeated both teams by a 4-2 margin, securing Stanford’s position as the leader of the Pac-12 conference and cementing them as a force to be reckoned with in national competition.
