Stanford men golfers finish third at The Goodwin

 

Stanford finished third at its home tournament, The Goodwin, and placed six student-athletes in the top 20 Saturday at Stanford Golf Course.

Stanford (280-279-280) was 1-under par to conclude the three-day, 54-hole event. UC Davis (-13) took home the team title with UNLV (-3) taking second among the 26-team field.

UC Davis' Luke Vivolo was the tournament's medalist with a 10-under 200.

"Hats off to UC Davis on an impressive win," said Stanford Director of Men's Golf Conrad Ray. "They played really well with a lot of their guys knowledgeable of the course having grown up in the area.

"I felt like we had a nice team effort from all 10 players this week, and both of our seniors deserve a lot of credit for playing well in their last event at Stanford. Our second five finishing in the top five was a huge boost. We're still trying to determine who our best five players will be as we make our move into the spring."

Stanford fielded two units, and its second squad tied for fifth at 8-over after rounds of 281-283-284.

David Boote led Stanford with a fifth-place finish at 4-under, including an even-par final round. Boote went 72-64-70 in his home finale as a Cardinal.

Dominick Francks was a force to be reckoned with after rounds of 70-69-70 to finish at even-par and tied for 10th with Brandon Wu (71-68-71).

Checking in at 13th was Franklin Huang with rounds of 70-70-71, four spots ahead of Jeffrey Swegle (70-69-73) and Maverick McNealy (71-75-66). Swegle and McNealy were 2-over for the tournament.

McNealy saved his best round for Saturday, connecting for five birdies and one bogey during a stellar 4-under.

Christopher Meyers (71-76-69) moved up 30 spots to place 41st with a red score in his last circuit. Viraat Badhwar (70-74-73) was 50th, Sacred Heart Prep grad Bradley Knox (68-73-78) was 63rd and Isaiah Salinda (71-75-74) was 70th.

Stanford next will travel to the Western Intercollegiate (April 11-13) in Santa Cruz.

Baseball

Junior Chris Castellanos and three relievers combined on a nine-hitter and Stanford beat visiting Washington State, 5-0, to earn the series victory.

Castellanos threw seven innings and surrendered five hits. He also struck out five and allowed only one Cougars baserunner to reach second base.

Andrew Summerville, Tyler Thorne and Chris Viall teamed up for the final six outs, and completed Stanford's fourth shutout of the season.

The Cardinal grabbed an early lead in the third inning. Sophomore Matt Winaker led off with a line-drive triple to the right centerfield wall, and junior Jack Klein promptly followed with a two-run home run to left center.

Later in the inning, sophomore catcher Bryce Carter walked and worked his way around the base paths on a wild pitch and sacrifice bunt. Freshman Nico Hoerner brought him home on a groundout.

Stanford tacked on another run in the sixth by way of another leadoff triple. Sophomore outfielder Quinn Brodey drove one past a diving left fielder, and scampered to third as the ball trickled to the wall. He later scored on Mikey Diekroeger's sacrifice fly.

"It was a good note to end on," Klein said. "Now we just need to keep it rolling. We just have to play our kind of baseball and we will be successful."

Next up for the Cardinal is a Monday matchup with San Jose State. First pitch at Municipal Stadium is set for 6 p.m.

Sailing

Stanford finished third at the Graham Hall Team Race on Saturday, recording a 14-6 mark behind skippers Axel Sly, Antoine Screve, Will La Dow and crews John Cannistraro, Samantha Steele and Sarah Lucas.

Softball

Stanford dropped the series finale at No. 4 Oregon, 8-0, in six innings Saturday.

The Ducks (26-4, 6-0 Pac-12) scored two runs in four different innings and limited the Cardinal's (11-14, 0-3 Pac-12) offense to two hits to seal the series sweep.

Carolyn Lee (6-8) got the start in the circle and contributed another strong outing, permitting five runs –three earned -- on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts in four innings. Haley Snyder came in as relief and did well to keep Stanford within striking distance.

Molly Fowkes and Kaitlin Schaberg provided the offense for Stanford, registering a single apiece. Snyder contributed solid at-bats as well, drawing two walks.

Stanford had its best opportunity in the top of the fourth inning when Snyder walked and Kaitlin Schaberg followed with a single to put runners on first and second with two outs.

The Cardinal plays at Santa Clara on Wednesday before hosting Oregon State for a three-game series.

Men's swimming

Stanford's season came to a close Saturday evening with a 14th-place finish at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships in Atlanta, Ga.

"Sam Perry came through all week, and Ted Miclau's performance on the platform was key for us." said Stanford Director of Men's Swimming Ted Knapp. "Of the 14 swimmers and four divers that were invited, three were freshman and seven were sophomores. We outscored our projected point total on the psych sheet, and it was a big meet for the six point-scorers who hadn't scored at NCAA's before."

Liam Egan and Danny Thomson represented the Cardinal in the 1,650-yard freestyle, the opening event of the evening session. Thomson (14.58.10) finished 19th while Egan (14:52.34) took 14th, good enough for an All-America honorable mention.

In the 200-yard backstroke, Patrick Conaton (1:41.80) placed 26th, Ryan Arata (1:42.08) took 30th and Maxwell Williamson (1:43.93) was 39th.

Perry (42.85) earned his fifth All-America honorable mention of the meet with a 14th-place finish in the 100-yard freestyle.

Women's tennis

No. 20 Stanford cruised past No. 65 Utah 7-0 on Saturday afternoon in the 17th annual Spring Smash presented by Zoom Marketing at Taube Family Tennis Stadium.

Stanford (9-4, 4-1 Pac-12) swept both of its conference opponents this weekend and recorded its fifth shutout in the process.

Utah (10-8, 1-5 Pac-12) dropped its fifth in a row after a five-match winning streak.

The Cardinal captured the doubles point for a 1-0 lead, surrendering only two games combined in victories at the bottom two spots.

Krista Hardebeck delivered a 6-2, 6-1 victory on court four, extending her winning streak to 10 overall and increasing Stanford's lead to 2-0.

Taylor Davidson followed with a 6-2, 6-0 triumph at the No. 2 position, putting the Cardinal on the verge of clinching.

Caroline Lampl made it official with a 6-3, 6-2 victory at the No. 5 spot before Caroline Doyle, Carol Zhao and Kimberly Yee rounded out the shutout.

Women's water polo

Six different players scored goals and the third-ranked Stanford women's water polo team defeated No. 6 Arizona State, 8-5, Saturday at the Avery Aquatic Center in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play.

Stanford (16-2, 2-0 MPSF) held a 4-1 lead at the half, getting goals from senior Gupreet Sohi, freshmen Madison Berggren and Kat Klass, and junior Sophia Monaghan. Abbey Kerth scored the lone goal for the Sun Devils (14-5, 1-2 MPSF) in the first half.

The Cardinal extended its lead to 7-2 in the third quarter as Sohi scored again and sophomore Shannon Cleary notched two.

Arizona State made a late push in the fourth quarter, out scoring Stanford 3-1, but it wasn't enough to catch the Cardinal off guard. Junior Jamie Neushul capped off the Stanford scoring. Redshirt sophomore goalie Julia Hermann made 11 saves in the contest.

Up next, Stanford continues MPSF play on the road at No. 24 CSU Bakersfield on Saturday.
