McNealy will lead Stanford men golfers into The Goodwin


Stanford will host its annual tournament, The Goodwin, Thursday through Saturday at the Stanford Golf Course.

The event features 54 holes of stroke play. Team scores will consist of the cumulative total of its four best scores out of five per round. For the purposes of tournament honors and awards, ties will be split per NCAA Championship tie-breaking procedures.

Originally named the 'United States Intercollegiate', the event was renamed 'The Goodwin' prior to the 2014 edition in honor of former Cardinal head coach Wally Goodwin. Goodwin coached at Stanford from 1983-2000, and his tenure was highlighted by winning the 1994 national title. Goodwin was named national coach of the year in 1992 and 1994.

Goodwin recruited and coached standouts such as Tiger Woods, Casey Martin, Notah Begay III, Joel Kribel and current Stanford head coach Conrad Ray, among many others.

Stanford has claimed 14 team victories and 15 individual titles at the event, the most of any program in each category. The Cardinal captured the first team and individual titles in 1968 during the inaugural year of the tournament.

The 25-team field is comprised of No. 4 USC, No. 10 Stanford, No. 17 North Carolina, Arizona, BYU, Colorado, Colorado State, Denver, Fresno State, Loyola Marymount, Marquette, Nevada, Northern Colorado, Northwestern, Oregon, Pacific, Pepperdine, St. Mary's, San Jose State, Santa Clara, Southern Methodist, UC Davis, UCLA, UNLV and USF.

The field includes Stanford's Maverick McNealy, who won the 2015 event with a 13-under 197.

Women's lacrosse

Stanford senior Anna Salemo has been named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Women's Lacrosse Rookie of the Week.

Salemo, a native of Littleton, Colo. helped lead the Cardinal to a home win last week against eighth-ranked Penn State (7-2). The attacker accumulated three points on three goals with only four shots for a .750 shots on goal percentage. The 2016 season is the first collegiate season for the attacker.

The honor is the career first for Salemo, who was also named MPSF Offensive Player of the Week on February 22 and has helped lead the Cardinal to a 5-1 record to start the 2016 season with 14 goals and four assists in only six games.

No. 9 Stanford hits the road this week as the Cardinal takes on Johns Hopkins on Wednesday (ESPNU) at 3 p.m.

Men's swimming

For the first time since 2012, the Stanford men's swimming and diving team enters the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships as Pac-12 champion.

Fourteen Stanford swimmers qualified for the national meet, with California (16) and Texas (16) the only schools bringing more.

The Cardinal has five individual medley swimmers -- Abrahm DeVine, Curtis Ogren, Danny Thomson, Gray Umbach and Maxwell Williamson -– for eight individual medley swims, the most of any program at the meet.

All four of Stanford's divers qualified via the NCAA Zone E Championships two weeks ago in Flagstaff, Ariz.

Bradley Christensen qualified for the A-finals of the 3-meter and 1-meter, while Tarek Abdelghany made the A-final of the 3-meter and the B-finals of the 1-meter and the platform. Connor Kuremsky made the B-cut in the 3-meter and the A-cut in the 1-meter, with platform specialist Ted Miclau securing qualification into the A-final of the platform.

The NCAA Championships will begin Wednesday with the 800-yard freestyle relay in Atlanta, Ga.

Men's volleyball

No. 5 Stanford (15-3, 13-3 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) begins a four-match homestand on Thursday, welcoming USC (6-14, 4-12 MPSF).

The Cardinal will also face No. 15 Cal Baptist (11-13, 4-13 MPSF) on Friday. Both matches are slated for 7 p.m. in Maples Pavilion.

Stanford ranks second in the MPSF in hitting percentage (.353), kills (13.14) and third in aces (1.47). The Cardinal is also fourth in opponent hitting percentage (.235) and sixth in assists (12.12).
