MPSF water polo tournament seeding on the line

 

The second-ranked Stanford women's water polo team (17-2, 4-1) completes the regular season with a home match against No. 16 San Jose State (9-16, 0-4) on Saturday at 1 p.m.

It is also serving as Stanford's Senior Day. Dani Jackovich, Sophia Monaghan, Jamie Neushul, Cassidy Papa, Maggie Steffens and Gabby Stone will be honored in a pregame ceremony.


Maggie Steffens.
That group has won more than 89 percent of its games at Stanford, including a pair of national championships.

Stanford would be the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament's No. 1 seed with a win Saturday, coupled with a USC win over UCLA by seven goals or less.

Stanford would be seeded second with a UCLA win.

The Cardinal would be seeded third with a loss to San Jose State and a USC win --OR-- if USC beats UCLA by at least eight goals. Stanford has a final tally of plus-three on goal differential with UCLA and USC.

Stanford is third in the MPSF in goals per game (14.47), behind USC (15.56) and UCLA (15.55), and third in goals allowed per game (4.79), with UCLA (4.10) and USC (4.19) in the top two spots.

Individually, Maggie Steffens is third in goals per game (2.47), Makenzie Fischer is fifth (2.21), Jamie Neushul is 14th (1.63), Dani Jackovich is 20th (1.32) and Kat Klass 21st (1.26). Gabby Stone's 4.99 goals against average is fourth in the conference and her 9.23 saves per game are fifth.

Julia Hermann is third in goals against average (4.17) and ninth in saves per game (6.96).
