Stanford women finish out of top 10

   Despite reaching the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championships in Waco, Texas, the Stanford women finished outside the top 10 in the national rankings for the first time since at least 1987.
   The Cardinal (18-6) rose three places to No. 11 in the final rankings, released today. The Cal women (22-4) dropped four notches to No. 7 after losing to Stanford in the NCAA round of 16.
   Both Stanford and Cal return their top three singles players next season and five of their top six. The Cardinal loses No. 5 Ellen Tsay of Pleasanton, and the Bears lose No. 4 Zsofi Susanyi of Hungary.
   Susanyi reached the singles round of 16 and doubles final (with Klara Fabikova) in the NCAAs. Tsay advanced to the doubles semifinals with Caroline Doyle of San Francisco.
   On the men's side, Stanford (18-7) finished No. 20, and Cal (19-9) was No. 26.
   The final singles and doubles rankings will be released on June 3.
