Super Weekend at Stanford

For the third-straight year, the NCAA Super Regionals feature the Stanford Cardinal. Stanford hosts LSU in the best-of-three series, with the winner punching a ticket to the Women's College World Series.

Postseason History

Stanford softball is back in the postseason for the 21st time in program history

Familiar Foes

Stanford and Saint Mary's met this season, with the Card winning in Moraga.

• The Cardinal won 9-4, with freshmen Ava Gall and Kiley Buckley each going yard.

• Senior Regan Krause picked up the win in the circle, allowing just two earned runs in 5.2 innings pitched. Freshman Alyssa Houston earned the save with 1.1 scoreless innings.

Beating the Best

The Card has played 24 games against teams ranked in the NFCA's top 25

• Stanford is 14-10 against ranked teams, and 29-3 against unranked foes.

• The Cardinal has beaten a then-top-5 team three times on the season: No. 2 Tennessee on Feb. 16, No. 2 Texas on Feb. 24 and No. 5 Georgia March 3.

• Two wins at then-No. 8 Washington two weeks ago give the Card five wins against top-10 teams.

Power Surge

Through 62 games last season, the Cardinal combined to hit just 26 home runs. Through 56 games in 2024, the Card has almost doubled that number with 50.

• The 50 home runs are the most in a single season since 2008, and the third-most all-time. The second-best total is well within reach at 53.

• In 2023, the team combined for a .394 slugging percentage while batting .280.

• This season, the slugging percentage is up to .457 while the batting average has risen to .283.

• Last season, seven different players hit at least one home run. This year, that number is up to 12.

Aly Kaneshiro led the team with seven home runs last year, and is back atop the category with nine this year.

• Three different players have hit seven or more homers this season.

Emerged From the Pac

The Cardinal finished Pac-12 play at 17-7, second in the conference thanks one of the best conference campaigns in program history.

• Stanford swept back-to-back conference series for the first time since 2013 to open the Pac-12 slate.

• The Card has won seven of eight series in Pac-12 play.

• This is just the 15th time Stanford has won 10+ conference games in a season, and third time with 14 or more.

• Stanford secured back-to-back 14 win seasons for the first time in program history.

• The 17 wins tied a program record from 1998, when the conference schedule was 28 games long instead of the current 24-game format. The next best was 14 last season.
