STANFORD, Calif.- Last February, Saint Mary’s notched a rare road upset of Stanford, winning 4-3 to become only the third school to defeat the Cardinal on its home court since 1999.

No. 5 Stanford (6-0) made sure there would be no repeat, registering a 5-2 victory over No. 38 Saint Mary’s (3-3) on Thursday afternoon at Taube Family Tennis Stadium.

It would have been easy to overlook the Gaels this time around, especially given Sunday’s highly-anticipated matchup against No. 5 Florida.

Instead, the Cardinal looked sharp throughout while knocking off its fifth ranked opponent of the year.

Stanford captured the doubles point to take a 1-0 lead before Caroline Doyle was first off the court in singles with a 6-1, 6-1 victory at the No. 6 spot.

Carol Zhao increased the Cardinal’s lead to 3-0 following a 6-4, 6-3 victory at the No. 3 position.

Krista Hardebeck came through with the clincher, picking up a 6-3, 7-6 (3) triumph on court two.

Stanford hosts Florida on Sunday, Feb. 23, at 12 p.m.
