Cardinal women remain unbeaten in Pac-12 volleyball

 

Kathryn Plummer had 21 kills and the third-ranked Stanford women's volleyball team downed host No. 12 UCLA, 25-21, 20-25, 25-23, 25-18, in a Pac-12 Conference contest Friday.

Merete Lutz finished with 12 kills and a season-high seven blocks for the Cardinal (14-2, 7-0), which plays Sunday at No. 19 USC. First is slated for 3 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks

Plummer nearly tallied a triple-double, adding 10 digs and a career-high eight service aces. Her eight aces are tied for the third-most in a single match in program history.

After winning the opening set, Stanford trailed the entire second set.

The Cardinal fell behind early in the third and fourth sets, but was able to come-from-behind to earn the win.

Plummer served three aces in a four-point span during the third set to give Stanford the momentum.

Audriana Fitzmorris and Meghan McClure each pitched in with six kills. Junior Tami Alade registered a career-high 11 blocks to go with five kills.

Sophomore setter Jenna Gray tallied her first double-double of the year with 45 assists and 10 digs. Sophomore libero Morgan Hentz collected 17 digs, while freshman defensive specialist Kate Formico had nine digs.
