With the women off until resuming tournament play on Sunday, the men in hibernation, and the football team still just over a week away from their Spring Game, here are some tidbits to tide you over until the games actually start.

  • Three Stanford players–Jeanette Pohlen, Nneka Ogwumike, and Kayla Pedersen–were named All-Americans on Tuesday. Pohlen made the First Team, Ogwumike made the second team, and Pedersen was listed as an honorable mention.
  • Three members of the men’s team were named to the PAC-10 All-Academic teams on Monday. Jack Trotter (1st Team), Josh Owens (2nd Team), and Andrew Zimmerman (Honorable Mention) all got the nod.
  • The women’s All-Academic awards from the conference came down from Walnut Creek last weekend and got lost in the news of NCAA tournament results. Pedersen got a spot on the 1st Team, while Nneka Ogwumike, Sarah Boothe, Melanie Murphy, Lindy La Rocque, Pohlen, and Mikaela Ruef were all honorable mentions.
  • Stanford assistant Kate Paye tweeted a photo of Pohlen hugging the Maples hardwood after the team’s final practice of the year on the Farm.
