The Stanford women's volleyball program has announced its fall schedule in conjunction with the Pac-12 Network releasing its 2019 television picks. The Cardinal has 18 matches slated for coverage on the Pac-12 Networks and two matches picked up by the ESPN family of networks.

It marks the eighth season of live women's volleyball coverage on the Pac-12 Networks. Stanford's first appearance on the networks this season is its home opener against Texas on Sunday, Sept. 8. The Cardinal also host BYU (Sept. 21) for a nonconference match on Pac-12 Networks.

Stanford was 34-1 last season, capturing its eighth national title, the most of any program in the nation. The Cardinal also won the program's 18th Pac-12 championship, going undefeated in the conference.

The Cardinal returns six starters, including two-time AVCA National Player of the Year Kathryn Plummer and All-Americans Audriana Fitzmorris, Jenna Gray, Morgan Hentz and Meghan McClure.

The Cardinal is under the guidance of third-year head coach Kevin Hambly, who welcomes the nation's No. 1 recruiting class to The Farm this fall.

Men's soccer

Twelve television matches highlight the 2019 Stanford men's soccer schedule, which the three-time NCAA champions announced Tuesday.

The nation's most successful collegiate men's soccer program over the last half-decade, Stanford has won three of the last four NCAA titles, five consecutive Pac-12 championships and posted a 77-14-18 (.789) overall record since 2014.

The Cardinal returns nine starters to a team that went 12-4-5 in 2018 and advanced to the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament.

Twelve of Stanford's 20 matches are at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium, including a pair of free exhibitions against Saint Mary's (Aug. 20) and Pacific (Aug. 23). The Cardinal has posted a 44-6-10 (.817) record at home over the past five seasons with a goals against average of 0.53.
