Stanford men’s volleyball had an impressive weekend, decisively winning two critical matches at home. After struggling on the road, Stanford has been regaining its momentum, fighting its way back towards the top of the national rankings and finding its place in the MPSF. The No. 7 ranked Cardinal is now 7-4 overall and 4-4 in the MPSF after sweeping both UC San Diego and defending national champion UC-Irvine.
In a weekend dominated by great moments in the NFL playoffs, perhaps the most exciting match was the Saturday showdown between the Stanford men’s volleyball team and the University of the Pacific. Despite facing six match points, the Cardinal was able to rally back and win a thrilling five-set battle 3-2.
