Dries wins Player of Week honors in MPSF women's water polo


Stanford sophomore Annika Dries was named Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Mikasa women's water polo Player of the Week, it was announced Monday.

Dries earned her first player-of-the-week honor after scoring 11 goals during the Stanford Invitational, which the Cardinal won by beating USC, 10-9, in triple overtime. The U.S. National Team member was twice named the conference's Newcomer of the Week last season.

Men's tennis

Bradley Klahn and Ryan Thatcher are playing hookey from Stanford's match against visiting Utah at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

They have a good excuse.

Klahn and Thatcher are scheduled to meet third-seeded Dustin Brown and Rogier Wassen sometime after 4 p.m. at the Courtside Club in Los Gatos.

Both Stanford players are making their SAP Open debuts. Klahn also will compete in singles competition, facing Gael Monfils sometime after 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Women's golf

Stanford was one of five teams among the top 10 to complete both rounds Monday at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational in Tucson.

Kristina Wong followed a 1-over 73 in the morning with a 2-under 70 in the afternoon for a two-round total of 143, good for a seventh-place tie heading into Tuesday's final round.

Several golfers are slated to complete their second rounds before teeing off in the third round.

Stanford's Lila Barton rebounded from a tough first round to shoot a 1-under 71 and complete the first two rounds with a 149, tied for 26th.
