Women’s volleyball looks to maintain perfect Pac-12 record

The No. 2 Stanford women’s volleyball team (22-1, 14-0 Pac-12) remains second in the AVCA college volleyball poll again this week, still just behind No. 1 Brigham Young University, whom they lost to earlier in the season. However, the team is still in sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 this season, with an undefeated conference record. They will look to extend this conference lead at home this weekend with matches against No. 17 Oregon (16-8, 9-5 Pac-12) and Oregon State (11-15, 1-13 Pac-12).

Volleyball scores ranked wins in Southern California

Second-ranked Stanford Women’s Volleyball (20-1, 12-0) picked up two more wins over ranked teams this weekend, going on the road to sweep No. 15 USC and No. 20 UCLA in Los Angeles. The Cardinal have twelve such ranked victories, first in the nation by a wide margin. Junior outside hitter Kathryn Plummer led the team with 28 total kills and also chipped in 20 digs over the weekend to help Stanford secure its 18th straight 20 win season and move closer to a second straight Pac-12 Championship.

Stanford volleyball rolls over Oregon opponents

On August 31st, Stanford women’s volleyball travelled to Utah and played against Brigham Young University in a match that went five sets, and eventually ended with Stanford falling just short in the fifth.

Fast forward two months, and now the No. 2 ranked Cardinal (18-1, 10-0 Pac-12) haven’t lost a single game since that day in August. 16 straight wins and a perfect conference record later, they sit at the top of the Pac-12, and the country, with a seemingly unbeatable roster. But they still aren’t number one. That spot belongs to the BYU Cougars, who are the only remaining undefeated team in the nation. Stanford now has their eyes set on just one goal: getting revenge on BYU in Minneapolis this December at the NCAA Final Four, and claiming their second national championship in three years.
