    Field Hockey

    Men's Water Polo
    The Cardinal returned to the national championship game for the first time since 2005, falling just short of its 11th national title in a 7-5 loss to USC. Yet the performance was one to take pride in, as Stanford posted a 25-6 record and finished second in the MPSF standings with a 6-2 mark. Goalkeeper Jimmie Sandman returned to the pool after a year off in 2007 and was an anchor for the Cardinal defense, making 8.00 saves per game and boasting a GAA of just 4.93, figures which earned him first-team All-America honors and the MPSF Co-Player of the Year award.

    Men's Soccer
    Stanford never allowed more than two goals in a single match, the only team in the Pac-10 to accomplish the feat. However the Cardinal scored only 14 during a 4-11-3 season. Though Stanford suffered nine one-goal losses, it was a victory in a close game that highlighted its season: a 2-1 triumph over UCLA, handing the eventual Pac-10 champ its only loss in conference play.

    The women's soccer team produced its best season in school history at 22-2-1, reaching the NCAA College Cup.


    Women's Soccer
    The Cardinal recorded its best season ever, finishing 22-2-1 and earning the program's second trip (and first since 1993) to the NCAA College Cup under NSCAA/adidas Coach of the Year Paul Ratcliffe. Led by four NSCAA/adidas All-Americans (Teresa Noyola, Lindsay Taylor, Kelley O'Hara, Marisa Abegg), Stanford established school records for wins (22) and goals (71). The Cardinal finished with the nation's second-best GAA (0.317) and shutout percentage (0.68) and sixth-best scoring offense (2.84 goals-per-game).

    Women's Volleyball
    Stanford opened the year with another challenging non-conference season, continued by defending two Pac-10 titles in the toughest conference in the nation, finished with a tough battle through the NCAA Tournament, and, for the fourth time in the last five years, was one of two teams left standing on the final day of the season. The Cardinal ended the year with a No. 2 national ranking, a 31-4 record, its 15th conference title and its 18th NCAA Final Four appearance, all collected while playing one of the toughest schedules in the nation.

    Football
    Stanford finished with an overall mark of 5-7 and tied for sixth in the Pac-10 with a 4-5 conference mark. It marked Stanford's seventh straight losing season, however, the Cardinal has improved on its win total each of the last two seasons after going 1-11 in 2006. Of Stanford's seven losses last season, three came by a touchdown or less, including a pair of last-second losses at UCLA and Oregon. Stanford's final rushing total of 2,395 yards was the second-highest single-season mark in school history, trailing only the 1949 squad that finished with a school-record 2,481 yards. Toby Gerhart rushed for a single-season school record 1,136 yards on 210 carries last season and became the fifth Stanford back to reach the 1,000-yard plateau.

    Wrestling
    Under the direction of first-year head coach Jason Borrelli, Stanford won eight duals, boasted four top-three Pac-10 placers for the first time in more than two decades and sent two wrestlers to compete for a national title at the NCAA Championships.

    Squash
    Stanford completed its final weekend at the Howe Cup of the CSA National Women's Team Championships, finishing the season in seventh place nationally to match its previous best effort established last year.

    Women's Basketball
    Making its eighth NCAA Final Four appearance in school history, Stanford posted its second straight 30-win season by going 33-5 on the year. Stanford's 17-1 mark in Pac-10 play resulted in a ninth consecutive and 18th overall conference regular-season title, while three straight victories of over 25 points at the Pac-10 Tournament secured the Cardinal's sixth tournament crown. Stanford made its 22nd straight trip to the NCAA Tournament, capturing the Berkeley Regional title behind a school-record 46-point effort from Jayne Appel. Stanford suffered an 83-64 loss to Connecticut in the national semifinals.

    Men's Basketball
    Stanford closed out the year at 20-14 overall and 6-12 in Pac-10 play. For the 20th time in school history, the Cardinal reached the 20-win plateau. Following up last year's 28-8 mark, this is the first time since 2002-03 (24-9 overall) and 2003-04 (30-2 overall) that Stanford has posted back-to-back 20-win campaigns. Stanford secured a winning record for the 16th consecutive season and notched at least 18 victories for the third year in a row. The Cardinal also advanced to the postseason for the 16th straight year, reaching the semifinals of the College Basketball Invitational (CBI).

    Fencing
    Stanford completed its 2008-09 season with another top national finish after placing ninth at the NCAA Championships. The Cardinal was particularly strong on the men's side where Lucas Janson and Max Murphy earned All-America honors. Stanford was in sixth place after the men's portion of the competition. Both Janson and Murphy competed in sabre where they finished ninth and 12th, respectively. The women were led by three-time All-American Eva Jellison, who finished 15th in sabre. Her eight wins fell just short of her fourth All-America honor. Stanford also captured its fourth consecutive West Regional title.

    Men's Swimming and Diving
    Stanford won its 28th consecutive Pac-10 championship- a conference record for any sport. The Cardinal completed an undefeated regular season and held the No. 1 national ranking heading into the NCAA Championships. At the NCAA Championships, Stanford finished third and earned 34 individual All-America honors as well as all five relays placing in the top four. Austin Staab won an individual national title in the 100 fly with an American and NCAA record time of 44.18, while the Cardinal also boasted five individual Pac-10 champions. Chad La Tourette was named Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year while head coach Skip Kenney was named Pac-10 Coach of the Year.

The Cardinal posted an overall record of 26-4 and claimed second place in the MPSF regular-season standings (6-1) and at the MPSF Tournament. The Cardinal's season also included the Irvine Invitational title in February, as Stanford defeated then-No. 1 USC to not only claim the crown but also the top spot in the national poll, which it would hold for eight weeks.

    Women's Tennis
    Stanford wrapped up the year with a 19-5 overall mark, playing in its 28th NCAA Tournament while finishing up with a national ranking of No. 13.

    The men's tennis team made its first NCAA Tournament round of 16 appearance since 2006, and with the likes of Bradley Klahn (above), the Cardinal appears loaded for the future.


    Men's Tennis
    The Cardinal (20-6, 3-3 Pac-10) made its 30th NCAA Tournament appearance since 1977, reaching the round of 16 for the first time since 2006.

Bradley Klahn became only the fourth player in school history to win both the Pac-10 singles and doubles titles. Alex Clayton earned his second ITA All-American distinction by advancing to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Singles Championship.

Additionally, Stanford tallied its 11th 40-win season, made its 12th-straight NCAA Tournament appearance and advanced to its fourth NCAA Super Regional in five years. Stanford matched its best conference record ever (13-8) and took fourth in the competitive Pac-10 conference.

    Baseball
    Despite a strong finish, Stanford narrowly missed out on the NCAA Tournament, finishing at 30-25 overall following a rough 4-10 start. Drew Storen capped five players drafted in the Amateur Draft, going 10th overall to the Washington Nationals. Storen is the 11th Cardinal since 1999 to go in the first round, a record amongst college programs over that period. Brett Mooneyham was named a freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball and shortstop Jake Schlander was awarded the Pac-10's Defensive Player of the Year.

    Sailing
    Stanford finished the season as the ninth overall team in the country based on Fowle Trophy Points awarded at each of the six national championships held throughout the year. Sending sailors to both men's and women's singlehanded championships in the fall and qualifying for all three spring national championships (Women's and Team Racing on top of Coed) put the team in a position to score high in the Fowle Trophy tally. Kelly McKenna led Stanford, capturing her third consecutive All-America honor.

    Men's Golf
    Stanford qualified for its fourth trip in five years- and third straight overall- to the NCAA Championships.

Other highlights came when Bradley captured the MPSF title in the 60-meter hurdles during the indoor season and Schaerer captured the Pac-10 title in the discus during the outdoor season. In addition, Derrick set a new American Junior Record in the 5,000 meters with a time of 13:29.98.
