The Stanford men’s volleyball team was back on the road this weekend, taking on No. 14 UC Santa Barbara and No. 6 UCLA, two teams that it had defeated in its first meetings earlier in the season. This time around, though, No. 4 Stanford was swept in both games.
The Stanford men’s volleyball team has finally found the key to success, or so it seems after two critical and emotional wins at home this past weekend. The Cardinal beat No. 5 Pepperdine (9-6) and No. 13 USC (4-9), both important rivals to the program. The weekend’s success demonstrates that Stanford is a tough, maturing team and possibly a contender for the national championship.
Stanford men’s volleyball pulled out two dramatic five-set victories against No. 5 Pepperdine and No. 13 USC this weekend to avenge early season losses and establish itself as one of the toughest teams in the MPSF.
Stanford is returning to Maples Pavilion this weekend after four games on the road, a stretch during which Stanford went 2-2, had great success and lost in a heartbreaking ending. No. 5 Stanford (10-6, 7-6 MPSF) is set to face No. 4 Pepperdine (8-5, 8-5) on Saturday and No. 9 USC (3-8, 3-8) on Sunday. The Cardinal hopes to avenge its two early road losses against both teams.
This weekend, the Stanford men’s volleyball team was back on the road again, taking on BYU and Cal Baptist. Despite two very strong performances, it split the matches, losing to BYU in five before defeating Cal Baptist 3-1.
The Cardinal (9-5, 6-5 MPSF) has struggled to find consistency away from home this season—the team’s away record is now 2-4 after splitting two road games last weekend. Stanford was able to hold off Cal State-Northridge to earn a 3-1 victory but fell short against No. 4 Long Beach State in straight sets.
The No. 3 Stanford men’s volleyball team, fresh off an impressive sweep of UC-San Diego, hit the road this past weekend to face two very tough teams: No. 8 Cal State Northridge and No. 4 Long Beach State. It was certainly a tale of two matches, as the Cardinal rallied past the Matadors on Friday…
The No. 3 Cardinal men’s volleyball team will look to improve its 1-3 road record when it travels south this weekend to face No. 8 Cal State-Northridge (6-4, 4-4 MPSF) on Feb. 15 and then to No. 4 Long Beach State (9-4, 7-3 MPSF) for a match on Feb. 16. The Cardinal (8-4, 5-4 MPSF), hoping to build momentum going into the second half of the season, is just two weeks away from a meeting with No. 1 BYU.
