No. 2 Stanford women’s volleyball (9-3, 3-1 Pac-12) looks to extend their win-streak on Friday night as they face off against conference opponent Arizona (11-5, 1-3 Pac-12) at home.

This Saturday at noon, No. 1 Stanford women’s swimming and diving (0-0, 0-0 Pac-12) is set to take on Arkansas (1-0, 0-0 SEC) at Avery Aquatic Center for the opening meet of the season.

As the three-time defending national champions, the Cardinal has a big reputation to live up to.
