Women’s basketball suffers up and down weekend against Oregon schools

In a weekend of highs and lows, the Stanford women’s basketball team (19-4, 9-3 Pac-12) dominated the No. 7 ranked Oregon State Beavers (20-4, 10-2) in an upset victory on Friday night before being dissected by the No. 3 Oregon Ducks (23-1, 12-0) on Sunday. The Cardinal walked all over the Beavers, winning 61-44, but were obliterated by the Ducks, falling 84-44. This loss marked the first time the team has been beaten by 40 points since 1985.

Women’s soccer breaks Pac-12 win streak with tie

The No. 1 ranked Stanford women’s soccer team (15-0-2, Pac-12 8-0-1) traveled to Washington State (11-5-1, 4-5-1) yesterday to face the Cougars in a match that ended in a 1-1 double overtime draw. The Cardinal’s unbeaten streak marches on, now standing at 39 games since their last defeat. This tie, however, marks the end of their 26 game Pac-12 win streak, which dates back to October of 2016.

Stanford volleyball rolls over Oregon opponents

On August 31st, Stanford women’s volleyball travelled to Utah and played against Brigham Young University in a match that went five sets, and eventually ended with Stanford falling just short in the fifth.

Fast forward two months, and now the No. 2 ranked Cardinal (18-1, 10-0 Pac-12) haven’t lost a single game since that day in August. 16 straight wins and a perfect conference record later, they sit at the top of the Pac-12, and the country, with a seemingly unbeatable roster. But they still aren’t number one. That spot belongs to the BYU Cougars, who are the only remaining undefeated team in the nation. Stanford now has their eyes set on just one goal: getting revenge on BYU in Minneapolis this December at the NCAA Final Four, and claiming their second national championship in three years.
