Beach volleyball prepares for final homestand

Stanford’s No. 20 beach volleyball team (10-14, 3-1 Pac-12) will play the final two games of the regular season at home this Saturday against No. 7 Cal Poly (19-9, 5-1) at 1PM PST and No. 11 California (17-7, 5-1) at 4PM PST. Stanford is coming off a much-needed 5-0 sweep over San Francisco on Saturday, during which no Cardinal duo dropped a single set. The victory was especially welcome considering Stanford had been limping away on a four game losing streak before that, most recent of which was a 0-5 defeat at the hands of No. 19 Saint Mary’s (17-6).

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.
