STANFORD, Calif.- No. 12 Stanford defeated Santa Clara 5-2 on Wednesday in a rare midweek evening match at Taube Family Tennis Stadium.

Improving to 8-1 at home on the year, the Cardinal (12-3, 5-1 Pac-12) has now won eight of its last nine matches overall.

Santa Clara (11-8, 3-1 WCC) has dropped four of its last six contests.

The Cardinal secured the doubles point thanks to strong play at three lineup spots, surrendering only 11 games combined.

After Santa Clara booked its first point at the No. 4 spot, Stanford moved in front 2-1 following a convincing 6-1, 6-1 victory from Krista Hardebeck.

Kristie Ahn's 6-1, 6-2 win on court two over Kelly Lamble increased the Cardinal's edge to 3-1.

Natalie Dillon then provided the clincher, coming through with a 6-2, 6-1 triumph over Maggie McGeorge at the No. 6 position.

Stanford returns to action on Saturday, April 6, hosting Oregon at 12 p.m. Natalie Dillon and Stacey Tan will be honored in a Senior Day tribute at the start of the match.
