Pac-12 women’s indoor volleyball schedule 2019

As the Stanford Cardinal look to repeat their NCAA Division 1 Women’s Volleyball title we look at the Pac 12 volleyball schedule, where they will start their campaign. They are the favorites to win it all once again because they have the talented core of Morgan Hentz, Kathryn Plummer, Audriana Fitzmorris, and Jenna Grey. But their journey to back-to-back national titles starts at the Pac-12 2019-2020 season wherein eleven other universities will give them a run for their money.

Aside from Stanford, California is represented by three other schools. The University of California, Berkeley Golden Bears were runner-ups in the conference tournament last year while the University of California Los Angeles Bruins always have some formidable teams. The University of Southern California Trojans complete the schools from the Golden State.

The Oregon State Beavers and the University of Oregon Ducks are also part of the Pac-12. The Evergreen State also has two representatives: the University of Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars. It’s also a double for the home of the Grand Canyon with the University of Arizona Wildcats and the Arizona State Sun Devils. Completing the list are the University of Colorado Boulder and the University of Utah.

NCAA women’s volleyball qualification

The Pac-12 schools will play against each other and with schools from other US NCAA conferences. The team’s win-loss records will help whether the teams will qualify or not. The NCAA Selection Committee will determine the standing based on the quality of teams they defeated and how impressive their victories are. Last year, eight of the 12 schools were included in the tournament, seven of them were chosen.

The eighth slot, earned by Stanford, goes to the champion of the Pac-12 tournament. Whoever wins the intra-conference competition, as well as the champions from other conferences, earn an automatic bid to the big dance. Last year, the Cardinals finished an immaculate 20-0 record en route to the title. While they still have the strongest line-up among the Pac-12, the competition is so fierce that results are unpredictable.
