March 15, 2010
STANFORD, Calif. -- Head Coach John Dunning and the Stanford women's volleyball team announced their spring schedule this week. The Cardinal is slated to play four scrimmages in the coming months and compete in a tournament at San Francisco.
Stanford, which won its fourth consecutive Pac-10 Championship and advanced to the Stanford Regional in 2009, returns 11 veterans to its 2010 roster. The returners are headlined by three-time All-American outside hitter Alix Klineman, who has led the team in kills the past three seasons and has twice been named to the Final Four All-Tournament Team.
The Cardinal also returns seniors Gabi Ailes and Cassidy Lichtman. Ailes, the team's starting libero for the past three years, has already captured Stanford's career digs record with 1,641 in three season. Lichtman earned first team AVCA All-America honors in 2009 and led the team with 22 double-doubles, including 10 triple-doubles.
Stanford will play at Saint Mary's in its first spring match on Apr. 15 at 5:30 p.m. in Moraga, Calif. The Cardinal will then host Pac-10 rival California on Apr. 21 at 7 p.m. The teams will square off in the Maples Pavilion practice gym.
