The Stanford sand volleyball team won its inaugural contest in style, defeating Santa Clara 4-1 at the ACSR Sand Volleyball Courts on Tuesday. A crowd of over 200 fans showed up to support the Cardinal and catch a little slice of history.
The Stanford women’s volleyball team continued its reign of excellence this week, beating both Washington State and Washington to extend its winning streak to 22-straight and give the Cardinal a solid claim to the title of hottest team in the nation in any sport.
The Cardinal shut out both the Ducks and Beavers this past weekend, increasing its winning streak to 20 games. It’s the longest winning streak for Stanford since the 1999 season, and also head coach John Dunning’s longest winning streak since he took over on the Farm. Stanford now faces the Washington schools this week.
The Card extended its win streak to an unprecedented 20 consecutive games and asserted its position as the leader in women’s volleyball on. This is the largest winning streak the team has experienced since the 1999 season and the longest streak since head coach John Dunning took over the program’s reins in 2001.
It was a battle from the beginning, but the Stanford women’s volleyball team clinched its 18th consecutive win of the season Friday night at Maples Pavilion against the Arizona State Sun Devils to improve their record to 20-2 overall. The matchup started the second half of conference play for the Card after it came out of the first half leading the Pac-12 with an undefeated 12-0 record.
The games were certainly closer than anyone would have hoped, but the Stanford women’s volleyball team managed to continue its winning ways and roll through another weekend with two Pac-12 wins. The Cardinal pulled off five-set road victories over Washington and Washington State, extending its winning streak to 16 games.
