Stanford's Sullivan earns Pac-12 honor in women's soccer

 

Stanford midfielder Andi Sullivan was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week in women's soccer, as announced by the conference Tuesday.

Sullivan scored two highlight-reel goals and was a key distributor in the midfield in Cardinal victories at Arizona State and No. 17 Arizona this past weekend.

Sullivan scored the game-winner at Arizona State in the 74th minute with a hard left-footed shot from outside the 18-yard box that found the right corner of the net.

Sullivan continued to be dangerous from distance against the Wildcats, unleashing a blistering right-footed strike from roughly 30 yards out that found the upper lefthand corner of the goal. The goal gave Stanford a 2-1 lead at the time and helped the Cardinal earn a 3-2 overtime victory.

Stanford returns home this weekend and will play six of its final eight games on The Farm. The Cardinal plays host to Oregon State on Thursday at 7 p.m., and concludes the weekend against Oregon on Sunday at 5 p.m.

Softball

Stanford softball players earned a program-best nine National Fastpitch Coaches Association honors, as announced Tuesday by the organization.

Cardinal representatives include: Kayla Bonstrom (international relations), Kaitlyn Lagattuta, Victoria Molina, Bessie Noll, Jessica Plaza (human biology), Kaitlin Schaberg (management science and engineering), Madi Schreyer, Kylie Sorenson and Lauren Wegner.

Stanford's nine honors eclipses the program's previous high of seven awards in 1999 and 2012. It is also the most honors of any Pac-12 school.

Stanford softball student-athletes accumulated eight Pac-12 All-Academic honors, including a conference-best five members on the first and second teams, earlier this year. The Cardinal's eight honors tied Washington for the most in the conference.

To be eligible for the award, student-athletes must maintain at least a 3.5 GPA for the 2014-15 academic year.
