W. Volleyball: Stanford wins three straight to close out regular season, earns No. 2 seed for NCAA tournament
After seeing its 22-game win streak come to an end, the No. 2 Stanford women’s volleyball team had to begin anew, starting with its matchup with UCLA on November 16. Three games and three victories later, the Cardinal had officially regained its mojo, ready to take on any opponent in the NCAA Tournament.
On the same night the No. 1 women’s soccer team beat UCLA to advance to the College Cup, the top-ranked Stanford women’s volleyball put its own stamp on the evening with a 3-0 sweep of rival California in the final regular season match of the season, officially taking the Pac-12 crown with a 19-1 conference record.

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.
As a Stanford student, it’s pretty hard to complain very much. I go to a top-notch school that gives me a scholarship, access to great professors and facilities and doesn’t make me wait by the computer at 12:01 to pray I can get into maybe my third- or fourth-choice classes—unless it’s spring quarter wine tasting.
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.
