• STANFORD claimed its NCAA-record tying seventh national title as eight Pac-12 teams earned NCAA berths. The NCAA title marks the fifth fall national championship for Pac-12 schools this season (including two for the Cardinal after winning the men’s soccer title), and a record 15th women’s volleyball crown for the Pac-12.

• At least six Conference teams have earned NCAA Tournament berths for the 17th-consecutive season, also marking the 17th time three Pac-12 teams advanced to the regional semifinal round. Stanford’s appearance in the national semifinal was 32nd time a Pac-12 team had advanced that far.

• Three of the eight NCAA Tournament teams were seede, the Cardinal earning a No. 6 seed, WASHINGTON was the No. 8 seed and UCLA was the 10th seed.

• The Huskies won the Pac-12 crown outright, their second-straight league crown and the third in four years. UW’s Courtney Schwan was tabbed the Pac-12 Player of the Year.

• Stanford head coach John Dunning and Kathryn Plummer received national honors, Dunning garnering AVCA National Coach of the Year honors while Plummer was voted the AVCA National Freshman of the Year. Dunning earns the nod for the second time at Stanford and first since 2001, while Plummer is the second-straight Cardinal to receive the freshman award.

• Plummer was also voted the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year with ARIZONA’s Penina Snuka receiving the Conference’s Setter of the Year award. UCLA’s Taylor Formico was the Pac-12 Libero of the Year for the second-straight year. WASHINGTON STATE’s Jen Greeny was voted the Pac-12 Coach of the Year after leading the Cougs to their best finish since  2002.

• 10 Pac-12 players were named to AVCA All-America teams. It is the 15th-consecutive year the Pac-12 has had at least eight student-athletes on AVCA All-America teams. Two seniors, seven juniors and a sophomore comprised the Pac-12’s national honorees.

• The Pac-12 has won 15 of 36 NCAA titles awarded, including 13 of the last 26.
