NETTING A TITLE . . With its third straight Pac-12 Conference championship nicely wrapped up in time for Thanksgiving, there's still a reason the third-ranked Stanford women's volleyball team needs to stay focused. Kathryn Plummer recorded 21 kills and added three blocks to help the Cardinal top host Washington State 25-22, 25-22, 25-22 in a conference match. Morgan Hentz had 20 digs for Stanford (23-4, 17-2) which hosts California at 3 p.m. Friday with an eye of clinching one of the four top seeds in the NCAA tournament and retaining the chance to host the first four rounds. The Cardinal moved into fourth in the RPI rating earlier this week. Plummer hit .362 and finished with seven digs. She also registered two aces, clinching the first and second sets for Stanford. She moved into sixth place on the Cardinal's all-time kills list with 1,827, passing Kristin Richards (2003-06). She's seven kills away from Kristin Folkl (1994-97) and fifth place. Senior setter Jenna Gray guided the offense with 35 assists and tallied four kills and four digs. Senior opposite Audriana Fitzmorris hit .400 with nine kills.
