ON THE COVER

Stanford will be shooting for back-to-back titles–and its sixth in the last eight years– at the women’s NCAA Water Polo Championships, May 11-13, at USC. Leading the way are Aria and Makenzie Fischer and Jordna Raney, who helped Team USA claim gold at last summer’s World Championships. Makenzie Fischer (cover), who also won gold at the 2016 Olympics and 2015 Worlds and Pan Ams, was second on Coach John Tanner’s team last year with 54 goals, the highest total for a Stanford freshman since 2013.
