Stanford women beaten by ex-Cardinal in Pac-12 softball


Madi Schreyer recorded a record of 26-17 over the past two years at Stanford, striking out 209 in 291 1/3 innings. To see her pitching for Washington on Friday night had to be painful and yet another reminder of what might have been.

Schreyer threw a one-hitter over six innings and the Huskies downed the host Cardinal, 9-0, in Pac-12 Conference action.

Schreyer, one of three quality pitchers who left Stanford in each of the past three seasons, transferred to be closer to home, as did Carley Hoover two years ago and Kelsey Stevens three years back. None of the three were recruited by current coach Rachel Hansen.

The Huskies (34-13, 14-8 Pac-12) scored five runs in the second inning and never looked back. Kayla Bonstrom recorded the lone hit for Stanford (13-33, 0-22 Pac-12) against her former teammate. Kaitlin Schaberg, Lauren Wegner and Arden Pettit each drew a walk.

Haley Snyder (7-14) got the start in the circle for the Cardinal and was relieved by Carolyn Lee in the second inning. Lee did well to limit the Huskies' offense after the second inning, permitting four runs on four hits. She walked and struck out three in 4 1/3 innings.

Stanford looks to even the series Friday at 3 p.m. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
