Decades of history will collide this weekend when No. 2 Stanford (31-7, 15-3 Pac-12) steps on to Dedeaux field to face USC (19-22-1, 8-9-1 Pac-12) for a three game series.
Last weekend, No. 20 Stanford’s beach volleyball season came to a close as the Cardinal was unable to progress very far in the Pac-12 tournament.
After dropping Game 1, No. 3 Stanford (29-7, 13-3 Pac-12) provided an emphatic Game 2 response with a 13-3 victory over Arizona (19-20, 7-12 Pac-12).
Stanford head coach David Esquer called the errors “a sign of the quality of play” in No. 3 Stanford’s Friday night loss to Arizona.
Tis past weekend, the Stanford men’s and women’s tennis teams dominated Pac-12 opponents in the final weekend of season competition in three total away games.
On Friday evening, No. 19 Stanford women’s lacrosse (12-4, 6-3 PAC-12) rolled Cal 17-6, led by a Senior Day outburst from senior Monika Sivilli, who recorded her first career hat-trick in her last regular season game as a Cardinal.
No. 4 Stanford (27-6, 11-2 Pac-12) swept Oregon (22-16, 7-8 Pac-12) in a three-game series over the weekend. Midway through the Pac-12 slate, the Cardinal currently sit in first in conference standings.
Stanford’s No. 20 beach volleyball team (10-14, 3-1 Pac-12) will play the final two games of the regular season at home this Saturday against No. 7 Cal Poly (19-9, 5-1) at 1PM PST and No. 11 California (17-7, 5-1) at 4PM PST. Stanford is coming off a much-needed 5-0 sweep over San Francisco on Saturday, during which no Cardinal duo dropped a single set. The victory was especially welcome considering Stanford had been limping away on a four game losing streak before that, most recent of which was a 0-5 defeat at the hands of No. 19 Saint Mary’s (17-6).
