Women's Volleyball Head Coach John Dunning To Chat With Fans
Oct. 2, 2001
Welcome to ESPN.com's moderated chat room. On Wednesday, Stanford head women's volleyball coach John Dunning, hits the chat to talk about the fourth-ranked Cardinal volleyball team and their quest for a fifth national championship.
Dunning is beginning his first year at Stanford after a very successful 16-year stint at Pacific where he compiled an impressive 437-102 (.811) record during his tenure. He led the Tigers to two NCAA Championships, a NCAA runner-up finish, five Big West Conference titles and 16 consecutive NCAA postseason tournament bids. He also earned Volleyball Monthly National Coach of the Year kudos in 1985, his first season at UOP.
This season, Dunning has got the Cardinal off to an impressive 9-1 start without playing a single home match yet. Stanford has posted four wins over ranked teams, including then-No. 4 Penn State, No. 14 Minnesota, No. 18 Texas A&M and No. 25 Texas. Stanford won tournament titles at the Jefferson Cup Tournament and the Verizon Texas A&M Invitational. Junior Logan Tom was named MVP of the Jefferson Cup and freshman Ogonna Nnamani took MVP honors at Texas A&M.
The Cardinal are off to a 3-0 start in the always tough Pac-10 conference and will take on #24 Santa Clara on Tuesday, October 2 before hosting the Oregon schools on Thursday and Friday nights. Stanford will end the week with a high anticipated match-up with seventh-ranked Arizona on Sunday afternoon.
Dunning won't hit chat until Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET. Feel free to drop him some questions now and we'll save them for his arrival.
