"To finish seventh in the toughest field of the year is a huge boost of confidence for the players on this team," Stanford coach Anne Walker said. "The last two days were especially strong and showed that we have the players to continue to compete on the national stage. We will keep working hard and I am sure we will see some more great finishes ahead."
