SEATTLE -- Another Pac-12 quartet is on tap for the Beach Dawgs this weekend, as the Pac-12 North Invitational assembles the conference at Stanford. Three of Washington's four matches this weekend will be televised live on Pac-12 Networks Bay Area.
As always in the Pac-12, it will be a challenging week, with UW taking on two Top-10 teams and two other teams receiving votes in the latest AVCA poll. On Saturday, Washington will start against the host 9th-ranked Stanford at 2 p.m. and then take on Utah at 4 p.m. Both Saturday matches will be televised. Sunday, UW goes up against third-ranked UCLA at 2 p.m. in a televised match. The finale at 5 p.m. on Saturday against Arizona State will be the one match not on TV.
The first three matches for UW will be played at the Stanford Beach Volleyball Stadium Courts and the last match with ASU will be at the Graduate School of Business Courts.
Washington comes into the match with a 6-10 record, having gone 2-2 last week in Boise. The Beach Dawgs are 2-5 against Pac-12 opponents, with wins over California and Oregon. The Huskies had a 5-0 loss in an earlier match against Stanford and a 4-1 loss to Arizona State, and are meeting UCLA and Utah for the first time this season.
Natalie Robinson and Chloe Loreen continue to excel for the Huskies with an 11-4 record at the No. 1 spot. The two rank fourth and fifth now in school history in individual wins, as Robinson has 38 and Loreen has 37. Next on the squad with seven wins so far this season are Emma Calle and Hannah Yerex who have played every match together at four or five.
