Cardinal women sweep volleyball match from Aggies


Sophomore Kathryn Plummer recorded 22 of Stanford's 40 kills in a 25-17, 25-20, 25-17 volleyball win over Texas A&M, Sunday, at Reed Arena on the final day of the Texas A&M tournament.

Stanford travels to Illinois, where Cardinal coach Kevin Hambly coached last year, for the Big Ten-Pac-12 Challenge this weekend.

The Cardinal will take on host Illinois on Friday and then gets a rematch with No. 5 Penn State on Saturday.

Stanford (4-1) hit .272 as a team and kept the Texas A&M (2-2) hitters off balance with 11 blocks. The Cardinal held the Aggies to a .089 attack percentage.

Plummer hit .409 (22-4-44) in her second straight 20-plus kills performance. She was named 'Best Attacker' of the tournament.

Sophomore setter Jenna Gray registered a career-high six kills, second-most on the team, and finished with 28 assists, four digs, three blocks and an ace.

Freshman outside hitter Meghan McClure added five kills, a career-best 10 digs and three blocks for the Cardinal.

Sophomore Micheala Keefe, the daughter of former Cardinal great Kristin Klein and former Stanford and NBA player Adam Keefe, totaled four kills and a career-high four blocks.

Tami Alade and Audriana Fitzmorris, Stanford's middle blockers, tallied six and five blocks, respectively.

Sophomore libero Morgan Hentz, who earned 'Best Libero' honors, notched 12 digs and a career-best seven assists while leading the defense.

Payton Chang, Caitlin Keefe and Blake Sharp all entered the match in the third to serve. It marked the collegiate debut for Sharp.
