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.

The Cardinal pulled off five-set road victories over Washington and Washington State, extending its winning streak to 16 games.
