Volleyball Olympian Logan Tom To Play Collegiately in 2000
Oct. 13, 2000
Stanford Olympian Logan Tom has returned to the Cardinal campus and will study and compete in 2000. Tom started in Tuesday night's match against California in Maples Pavilion. Stanford won the match 15-6, 15-8, 15-8. Tom tallied a match-high 17 kills while addding six digs and four blocks.
'Having made the decision to return to school, it just made sense to go ahead and play volleyball,' said Tom. 'I'm not the type of person to sit on the sidelines and watch.
'I don't feel physically or mentally tired and am looking forward to competing collegiately,' she continued. 'It's a different game, but my teammates are helping me make the adjustments. Right now I'm just taking things day by day and enjoying being a college student-athlete.'
Tom was a All-American and All-Pac-10 selection last year as well as being named the National and Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. She finished 1999 ranked second in the league in kills (4.63) and service aces (0.45) and eighth in hitting percentage (.320).
'It's great to have Logan back,' said interim head coach Denise Corlett. 'She provides a real boost to the team. She is a physically gifted athlete who adds another dimension to our team.'
Stanford is next in action on Saturday, October 14 at 7 p.m. against 18th-ranked Long Beach State in Maples Pavilion.
