The Cardinal has claimed five of the last seven NCAA crowns and has appeared in every national final since 2010. The win was also the 113th NCAA team title overall for the department, which tied Stanford with UCLA for the most all-time. Knotted 7-7 with 30 seconds to go, Stanford (23-3) turned the ball over and the Bruin(24-2) called timeout to set up a play for the game’s final shot. UCLA would never get the chance. Steffens tipped a Bruin pass on the outside and the Cardinal regained possession with 14 seconds left and immediately used its final timeout. Water polo is a tough sport, but when it first began it was even tougher. Fighting between players was common, if not the norm. In 1897, New Yorker Harold Reeder formulated the first American rules for discipline, which were aimed at curbing the sport’s more violent tendencies. In the early days, the players rode on floating barrels that resembled mock horses, and swung at the ball with mallet-like sticks. This made it similar to equestrian polo, hence its name. In the United States it was termed softball water polo due to the use of an unfilled bladder as a ball. The women’s water polo team isn’t the first to request Jones’s presence at their game. Monday, the U.S. women’s basketball team made a video asking for Jones to attend one of their games too. West went on to graduate from Yale’s joint MBA/Master of Forestry program in 2015 with interests in conservation finance, working lands management and regenerative food systems. She spent one summer at Beartooth Capital Partners, a ranchland investment group in Bozeman, Mont., and another interning at The Nature Conservancy in its conservation investment group.

Stanford Athletics and Office of Development have worked in conjunction with The Bill Lane Center for the American West to honor Heather’s enduring spirit with the creation of a fund in her memory. The fund will provide support for one or more students to participate in Sophomore College, a three-week immersive and experiential learning program, internships and other field-based programs at the Lane Center.”Heather once convinced a novice backpacker to summit Mount Whitney within 24 hours of the trip, and a non-camper to celebrate her birthday sleeping in the rain and both came away smiling” Steffens said. “Heather loved adventure and adventure seemed to love her right back. We hope this scholarship and its recipients embody the same enthusiasm for the outdoors and the same passion for sharing it with others – novices and stubborn city slickers alike.”
