From the podium at the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) draft, two Stanford teammates had something very similar to say.
At the end of another long season of Stanford athletics, The Daily’s sports staff compiled a list of the top five Stanford athletes that displayed tremendous contributions to their teams/programs.
Stanford senior midflielder Andi Sullivan was awarded the Missouri Athletic Club Hermann trophy last Friday. She is the fourth Cardinal player to win the highest honor in college soccer.
Despite blowing a 2-0 lead in four minutes, top-seeded Stanford women’s soccer (24-1-0) eventually edged out No. 4 UCLA (19-3-3) 3-2 to win the program’s second-ever NCAA title, thanks to a game-winning goal by College Cup’s Most Outstanding Player junior Jaye Boissiere.
Junior Jordan DiBiasi found the back of the net twice on Friday as top-seeded Stanford women’s soccer (23-1-0) beat No. 5 South Carolina (19-3-1) 2-0 in Orlando, Florida. With this win, the Cardinal moves on to the College Cup Final where it will meet No. 3 Duke or No. 4 UCLA.
After four players — senior Andi Sullivan, junior Kyra Carusa, sophomore Tierna Davidson and freshman Catarina Macario — were nominated to the all-Pacific team on Tuesday, No. 1 Stanford women’s soccer (22-1-0, 11-0-0 Pac-12) travels to Florida this weekend to participate in its eighth college cup. The Cardinal kicks off with a game against No. 5 South Carolina (19-2-1) on Friday, and in case of victory will face the winner of No. 3 Duke and No. 4 UCLA on Sunday.
No. 1 Stanford women’s soccer (22-1-0, 11-0-0 Pac-12) stormed past tenth-ranked Penn State (15-5-4) last Friday to earn its eighth berth to the College cup. The Cardinal poured three goals on the Nittany Lion in only 12 minutes of play to finish the game with four scores to none.
Top-seeded Stanford women’s soccer (21-1-0) moved past two opponents in the NCAA tournament last weekend to advance to the quarterfinal. The Cardinal got started with a 2-0 win against Auburn (8-7-5) on Friday before junior Jordan DiBiasi punched the team’s ticket to the next round with a game-winner against Florida State on Sunday.
