Dec. 16, 2005
Stanford, Calif. - Cardinal co-captains Hayley Hunt and Rachel Buehler were both selected to NSCAA West Regional Teams after helping the Cardinal to a 10-7-3 record. Stanford earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, marking the Cardinal's 15th appearance in the postseason and eighth-consecutive bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Hunt, a defender from San Marino, Calif., was named to the Second-Team All West Region after helping Stanford to a 0.82 goals-against and a 0.55 shutout percentage, which ranked No. 16 in the nation this season. Hunt also earned First- Team All-Pac-10 accolades and was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Second-Team and the Pac-10 All-Academic First-Team.
Buehler, a midfield from Del Mar, Calif., earned Third-Team All West Region accolades this season. After redshirting her second season to play with the U.S. 2004 FIFA Under-19 Women's World Championship team, Buehler returned The Farm and switched to midfield from defense and scored two goals on the year, both game-winners during the Sanford Nike Invitational, including her first collegiate goal against Santa Clara to give the Cardinal a 1-0 upset victory.
