in the record book, 2016-17

The 2016-17 team was not a record-breaking team, but they did earn a lot of entries in the Stanford record book. Perhaps that's why this hard-working group of young women took Stanford to the Final Four for the first time in three years.

Bird earned ten entries in the Stanford record book this season and ends her college career with thirteen.

Karlie matched two Stanford records this season, earned seven other entries in the Stanford record book, and had two other noteworthy accomplishments. She ends her college career with eleven entries in the Stanford record book.

Bri earned one entry in the Stanford record book.

Kaylee did not earn any entries in the Stanford record book this season, but she retains two freshman records and five other entries that she earned in the past two seasons.

Alanna earned two entries in the Stanford record book.

Marta earned one entry in the Stanford record book this season, and she retains the three entries and the Pac-12 tournament record that she earned last season.

The team broke one Stanford record this season and earned seven other entries in the Stanford record book.
