Jahn a supplemental pick of the San Jose Earthquakes
|Stanford senior Adam Jahn was selected with the 15th pick of the Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft by the San Jose Earthquakes Tuesday.
Jahn finished his Stanford tenure with a career year, posting career bests of 13 goals, 30 points and four match-winners as the Cardinal went 9-8-1 overall and 5-4-1 (16 points) in conference play to place third. Over his Cardinal career Jahn accumulated 60 points on 24 goals and 12 assists.
His sterling 2012 campaign earned him selection to the NSCAA All-Far West Region Second Team as well as his first nod to the All-Pac-12 Team. For his career, Jahn was a four-time all-conference pick, earning second-team recognition from 2009-11.
Jahn was twice named Pac-12 Player of the Week in 2012 (Oct. 30, Nov. 12), earning the second of those honors following his first-career hat trick in Stanford's 6-1 rout of California on Nov. 9. His hat trick was the first for a Cardinal player since 2001.
Jahn, who started all 18 matches for the Cardinal, had provided the match-winner in Stanford's away wins over ranked teams such as No. 11 UC Irvine on Sept. 7 and No. 25 UC Santa Barbara on Oct. 26, in addition to an 86th-minute winner in a 3-2 home win over Oregon State on Oct. 18.
He joins a San Jose Earthquakes club that captured the MLS Supporter's Shield as MLS' top regular-season team. The Earthquakes accumulated a league-high 66 points (19-6-9), and the capture of the Supporter's Shield earned the club a berth into the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champion's League.
San Jose opened its 2013 preseason camp Monday, and will make trips to Tucson, Oxnard and Portland for preseason matches before opening the 2013 regular season March 3 against Real Salt Lake at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara.
The Stanford softball team begins the 2013 season ranked No. 21 in the National Fastpitch Coaches Association preseason poll, the organization announced today.
The Cardinal finished the 2012 season with a 40-19 record and advanced to the postseason for the 15th consecutive year. The team finished sixth in the always-competitive Pac-12 Conference and ended the year with a No. 21 final ranking in the NFCA poll.
Stanford returns 13 letterwinners from last year's squad, including 2012 All-American Jenna Rich.
Also returning for the Cardinal are senior pitcher Teagan Gerhart and sophomores Hanna Winter and Leah White, who joined Rich as NFCA All-West Region picks and All-Pac-12 Conference selections a year ago.
Redshirt senior Sarah Hassman, who sat out the majority of the 2012 season due to injury, is also back for Stanford.
Seven of the nine Pac-12 squads appeared in the poll. California is the highest-ranked conference squad at No. 3. The Golden Bears are followed by No. 4 Arizona State, No. 5 Oregon, No. 13 Arizona, No. 16 Washington and No. 19 UCLA.
The Cardinal is scheduled to play 21 games against preseason top 25 teams this year, beginning with No. 2 Oklahoma at the Kajikawa Classic on Feb. 8, its second game of the season. Stanford will also face No. 9 Georgia and No. 25 Florida State at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic in late February.
The Cardinal opens the season Thursday, Feb. 7, against Bradley at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe.

The Stanford men's fencing team was ranked No. 10 in the first College Fencing 360 Coaches' Poll of the season, announced Tuesday.
The men's team opened its season at the Western Invitational going undefeated with four victories. The Cardinal defeated Air Force (17-10), California Institute of Technology (25-2), UC San Diego (16-11) and Florida (23-4).
Stanford was led by 2012 NCAA Championships runner-up Turner Caldwell (5-1) and 2012 London Olympian Alex Massialas who finished the tournament undefeated in men's foil.
