STANFORD, Calif. – No. 16 Stanford opens its home schedule Monday at 6 p.m. (PT) in Maples Pavilion when it plays host to No. 9 Oregon State.

The Cardinal (2-3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) earned its second victory on the year this past Sunday with a 195.950-189.575 win at Penn. Stanford outscored the Quakers in all four events and swept top-three finishes in three of four events. Four Stanford gymnasts combined for seven individual event victories.

Oregon State picked up its first victories on the season last weekend, posting a 195.975 to defeat Iowa State (195.950) and Southeast Missouri State (193.300).

Cardinal Update
 Stanford outscored Penn in all four events, posting scores of 49.325 on vault, 49.475 on bars, 48.450 on beam and 48.700 on floor.

 The Cardinal’s score of 49.475 on bars is the highest in the event since Jan. 19, 2007, when Stanford posted a 49.575 against Arizona State.

 Nicolette McNair, Elizabeth Price, Ivana Hong and Taylor Rice swept the individual event titles. Seven gymnasts combined for 12 top-three finishes.

 Hong scored a career-best 9.950 on bars and earned a 9.900 on beam to claim individual event victories in both events.

 Hong was named the Pac-12 Specialist of the Week for her standout performance. She is the second Stanford gymnast to earn Pac-12 recognition this season after Price was named Specialist of the Week on Jan. 12.

 Price continued the hot start to her freshman campaign, earning individual event victories on bars (9.950) and vault (9.925). Price has earned individual event victories in all five of her performances this year.

 Taylor Rice scored a career-best 39.375 in the all-around to claim her second victory in the event on the season. She posted a 9.875 on floor to claim the individual event title and placed third on bars with a career-high 9.900.

 Reigning Pac-12 Freshman of the Year Nicolette McNair tied Price for the individual event title on vault with a 9.925. She also produced a 9.825 on bars.

 Rebecca Wing continues to provide consistency for Stanford in the leadoff position on bars and beam. She placed second on beam with a 9.850 and contributed a 9.825 on bars.

 Kristina Vaculik, a 2014 First Team All-Pac-12 selection in the all-around, missed the first three meets of the season because of illness. She will likely return to the lineup in the coming weeks.

Monday’s Opponent: No. 9 Oregon State
 Oregon State posted a 195.975 to earn a first-place finish against Iowa State and Southeast Missouri State last weekend.

 Stanford and Oregon State split a pair of meetings last season with the Beavers winning an early-season meeting in Corvallis (197.100-195.750) and the Cardinal placing second at the Pac-12 Championships (197.175-196.275).

 Stanford and Oregon State last met on The Farm in 2013 during a tri-meet with the Cardinal earning a 197.200-197.175 victory.

 This will be the 86th meeting between the two programs.
