This Saturday and Sunday, No. 17 Stanford beach volleyball (8-10, 2-1 Pac-12) will host four teams for the Pac-12 North Beach Volleyball Invitational.

Stanford women’s volleyball has had an absolutely incredible season in 2018. They went undefeated in the Pac-12, swept their way through their regional bracket, and claimed the number one seed in the NCAA tournament.

The Cardinal ended the regular season 28-1, nearly undefeated.
