The Cardinal (14-6, 8-4 Pac-12) won two home matches in the same week for the first time. Stanford has now swept its last three home opponents, including Arizona State and seventh-ranked Washington.


Stanford held Washington State (17-6, 7-4 Pac-12) to a .148 attack percentage while hitting .301 as a team. The Cardinal held a 9-7 edge in blocks and a 46-42 advantage in digs.


Plummer finished one shy of her career-high in kills, and notched seven digs, a solo block and an ace. Ajanaku hit .529 and added three blocks. Redshirt junior opposite Merete Lutz recorded nine kills on .368 hitting, while freshman middle blocker Audriana Fitzmorris tallied seven kills, four blocks and three digs.


Freshman setter Jenna Gray had 36 assists, seven digs and a career-high five blocks. Freshman libero Morgan Hentz collected 16 digs and five assists. She has registered double-digit digs in all 20 matches this season. Kelsey Humphreys and Halland McKenna combined for 11 digs, while Ivana Vanjak had four kills.

The Cardinal hits the road next week, traveling to Colorado on Friday and to No. 21 Utah on Saturday
