Old Mott Gym on the Cal Poly campus had never been louder but the Stanford women's volleyball team finally found a way to quiet them en route to a 25-17, 23-25, 26-24, 25-10 victory over the host Mustangs on Saturday in the Cal Poly Invitational. The match took nearly two hours to play as the 2,917 fans in attendance -- the largest ever for a regular-season match at Cal Poly -- played a big role in keeping the 19th-ranked Mustangs on track. In the final analysis, Cal Poly never found an answer for Stanford senior Cynthia Barboza, who recorded a season-high 20 kills on a season-best .474 hitting percentage. She added 14 digs and three blocks. Foluke Akinradewo added 10 kills, seven blocks and a .625 hitting percentage. The Cardinal (9-2) hosts Oregon State in its Pac-10 opener on Friday at 7 p.m.
