Stanford women file away first volleyball loss in over a year

There are several issues with the Stanford women’s volleyball team this year. First the serving errors have been killing games. I realize that the Coach likes to “serve hard” but there are way too many errors. Second,, although Plummer is a great player she has limited ability to move. Opposing teams now serve directly into her area knowing her limitations. Third, every team is going after Stanford so especially on the road opposing fans create a huge amount of support.
Last it seems clear that the refs are making dubious calls. Witness the ridiculous call in the second serve first set where Coach Hambly had to use a green card. The incorrect call was made not less that 8 feet from Ref 1 and both line judges made the same error. The ref crew needs to pay more attention. The call was very quickly overruled but at the sacrifice of one of Hambly’s challenges.
