Washington captures 2020 Pac-12 Women’s Volleyball championship
SAN FRANCISCO - With its 3-0 victory over California on Saturday, Washington captured the Pac-12 Women’s Volleyball championship for the 2020 regular season staged during the winter/spring of 2021.
The Huskies improved to 17-3 with the win over the Golden Bears, closing the Conference-only campaign with a league-best .850 win percentage to claim their sixth all-time crown and first since 2016.
By virtue of its outright league title, Washington has earned the Pac-12’s automatic bid to the 2020 NCAA Championship. The entirety of the 48-team tournament will be held in Omaha, Neb., from April 14-24, with the event’s Selection Show held Sunday, April 4 at 1:00 p.m. PT on ESPNU.
The No. 7 nationally ranked Huskies lead a pack of five Pac-12 teams ranked in the most recent AVCA Top 25 along with No. 12 UTAH, No. 15 WASHINGTON STATE, No. 16 OREGON and No. 17 UCLA.
Pac-12 Women’s Volleyball had six teams reach NCAA Tournament play during the most recent 2019 campaign, extending a streak of at least six teams competing in the postseason to 20 consecutive seasons. STANFORD steamrolled its way to a second-straight and third-in-four-seasons National Championship, giving the Pac-12 a national-best 17 all-time NCAA titles including 15 of the last 29.
