Stanford defeats Nebraska in NCAA Volleyball Championship Match
Top-seeded Stanford won an NCAA-record eighth national volleyball championship, with Kathryn Plummer finishing with 19 kills and ten digs and Holly Campbell adding 15 kills for the Cardinal in a five-set victory over Nebraska on Saturday night.
Audriana Fitzmorris had 14 kills and Morgan Hentz had 32 digs for Stanford, which won 28-26, 22-25, 25-16, 15-25, 15-12 despite hitting only .250 against a Huskers team that pushed hard for a second consecutive title. Mikaela Foecke had 27 kills and a game-high 29 points for seventh-seeded Nebraska, which kept the two-time national player of the year Plummer from taking over but couldn’t pull away from a towering Stanford team that finished the season on a 32-match winning streak. Stanford finishes 34-1 in front of a crowd of 18,113 while Nebraska concludes at 29-7.
