STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford will play host to an informal five-team tournament on Sunday that will offer fans a preview of the NorCal portion of Mountain Pacific Sports Federation women's lacrosse.
The Stanford Play Day includes California, Fresno State, Saint Mary's, and UC Davis, in addition to the Cardinal. Play begins on two fields at 9 a.m. Each team will play four 50-minute games with a running clock.
