Stanford head coach Tara Danielson has announced the signing of six recruits to National Letters of Intent. The group will join the Cardinal for the 2011 campaign.

The class includes: Dulcie Davies (London, England), Kelsey Harbin (Escondido), Shannon Herold (Delta, British Columbia, Canada), Alex McCawley (North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), Kasey Quon (Lake Forest, Ill.) and Hannah Thiemann (Ladue, Mo.).

"This dedicated group will compliment the emerging style and structure of our program," said Danielson. These six student-athletes are both competitive and spirited, and we are excited to welcome the class of 2015 to our Stanford family."
