Stanford's Travlos is named top player in NorPac West

Stanford seeking its fourth straight conference tournament title this weekend

Stanford senior Xanthe Travlos earned her second consecutive NorPac West Player of the Year honor it was announced Wednesday.

A three-time NFHCA All-West Region pick and four-time all-conference selection, Travlos ranks second on the team with six goals and 49 shots and is third with 14 points.

Sophomore Becky Dru, with a team-leading eight goals, was named Defensive Player of the Year and was joined on the all-NorPac team by Travlos, junior Stephanie Byrne, senior Camille Gandhi and junior Alessandra Moss.

It was also announced that Gandhi and Travlos will participate in the NFHCA Division I Senior All-Star Game on Nov. 20 at Maryland.

The seniors play the U.S. Women's National Team, in addition to squaring off against each other in a series of four 25-minute periods.

Stanford (11-5) is the top seed for the NorPac Conference tournament that gets underway on Thursday at Davidson College.

The Cardinal, which dropped out of the national top 20 for the first time this season, meets Appalachian State (5-12) in the first round.

Stanford hopes to gain its fourth straight conference tournament title, which would qualify it for the NCAA Play-In game on Nov. 9 against the Atlantic 10 champion.
