Stanford's Plummer earns Pac-12 volleyball honor

 

Stanford opposite Kathryn Plummer was named Pac-12 Volleyball Freshman of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

The rookie averaged a team-best 2.83 kills on .500 hitting, 1.50 blocks and 3.67 points per set in Cardinal sweeps at Saint Mary's and Pacific last week.

Against the Gaels, Plummer led all players with 10 kills on a season-high .556 attack percentage.

She also had five blocks and three digs in Stanford's first true road match of the season.

At Pacific, the Aliso Viejo native recorded seven kills on .438 hitting and four blocks. She was errorless on the weekend, notching 17 kills on 34 swings.

She also led the team with 13 kills on .400 hitting in a win over No. 2 Minnesota in August.

The three-time high school All-American became the only player in history to win FIVB world championship medals in both indoor volleyball (silver) and outdoor volleyball (gold).

It is the first weekly honor for Plummer and the 18th freshman of the week accolade for the Cardinal, the most all-time in the conference.

Stanford begins Pac-12 play this week on the road, heading across the Bay to take on California on Tuesday.

The Cardinal will also travel to Oregon State on Friday.

Both matches are at 7 p.m. and will be televised on Pac-12 Networks.
