• STANFORD captured its third-straight NCAA championship (2015-17), joining Virigina (1991-94) in the history books as the only teams to have three-consecutive NCAA titles. No. 9-seeded Stanford and No. 2-seeded Indiana met in the College Cup final, battling through scoreless regulation time before redshirt junior Sam Werner netted the game-winning goal in double overtime. The 1-0 shutout marked Stanford’s 12th-straight College Cup game without allowing a goal.

• The Pac-12 now holds an all-time record of 132-101-12 (.563) in the NCAA Tournament, with seven national championships and eight second-place finishes. CALIFORNIA and WASHINGTON also earned berths to the NCAA Tournament.

• Stanford, which also won its fourth-straight Pac-12 tite, raked in the postseason honors with Foster Langsdorf named Pac-12 Player of the Year and Tomas Hilliard-Arce named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, both for the second-straight year. Stanford head coach Jeremy Gunn received Pac-12 Coach of the Year for the fourth-straight year.
