The Last Hurrah a/k/a Black Gloves

Images of KO’s penultimate game (and final win) as a Cardinal, and the dinner on the eve of Stanford’s 2-1 win over the UCLA Bruins in the NCAA Women’s Championships semifinals. The snapbacks have the College Cup/Pac-10 conference champions logo on them.

KO put Stanford on the board with an assist from Baby Press. Cheney then equalized for UCLA. Press scored unassisted in sudden death OT.

KO’s last win as an collegiate athlete. Cardinal brought a clean sheet (25-0) to the championship on December 6, but infamously lost to UNC.

KO & Press ended the season with a combined 123 points, the highest scoring tandem in the country, and were instrumental in reestablishing Stanford as a dominant power in NCAA Division 1.

Rachel Quon, Ali Riley, Alicia Jenkins, Kira Maker, Kristin Stannard, Hillary Heath, Lindsay Taylor, Morgan Redman, Madeleine Thompson, Courtney Verloo appear in pics.
