Predictable but entertaining 3-0 Stanford sweep in front of a D.C.-record 2,837 at a sold-out Bender today. The Cardinals’ reigning National Player of the Year, Kathryn Plummer, played like....a national player of the year. AU was dominated in the first set, 25-14, but played much better the next two sets, losing 16 and 19.
And: unlike the Washington match a few years ago, when the students left after the third set—with AU up two sets to one over the then number six team in the country!!—most of the students stayed for the final set today. Progress, of a sort.
