Pingree is Player of Week

Klineman named finalist for Senior CLASS award

Stanford men's water polo goalie Brian Pingree earned Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week, it was announced Monday.

Pingree was awarded his first career player of the week honor two days after making a career-best 14 saves in No. 6 Stanford's 5-3 upset victory over top-ranked and defending national champion USC.

Six of Pingree's 14 saves came in the opening frame, as Stanford built a 2-0 lead. He allowed one goal over three-plus periods and three in the game. The three goals scored was a season-low for the Trojans, who entered the contest sporting an MPSF-leading 15.40 goals per game.

Men's golf

The Stanford golfers were as hot as the temperatures in the second round of The Prestige at PGA West as three of them shot under par Monday.

Shane Lebow shot a 68, Andrew Yun shot a 69 and Cameron Wilson followed his first round 67 with a 70 as Stanford moved into first place tie with California following a round of seven-under-par 281.

Wilson dropped into second place but Yun moved into a third-place tie on a day when the mercury reached upwards of 100 degrees.

The weather is expected to remain the same Tuesday for the final round.

Women's volleyball

Stanford outside hitter Alix Klineman was named a finalist for the first-ever Lowe's Senior CLASS Award in volleyball on Monday.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.

Klineman currently leads the Pac-10 in kills per set (5.63) and points per set (6.16), while ranking fifth in the conference with a .382 hitting percentage.
