Of the many adjectives that can be used to describe the Stanford women’s volleyball team’s play this weekend, pretty is not one of them. However, sometimes it is just about getting the victories, and that is exactly what the Cardinal did
A straight-set Cardinal victory over the No. 2 Washington Huskies in a clash of volleyball titans Saturday night at Maples Pavilion sent shockwaves through the Pac-12 and the entire country, but no one learned more than No. 7 Stanford coach John Dunning and his players.
With four straight victories, the women’s volleyball team has quelled any fears that arose after an early slip-up in conference play. The Cardinal is looking to carry its momentum into this weekend’s matches against Washington and Washington State, two potential roadblocks in its quest for a sixth straight Pac-12 championship.
