      Stanford Captures Season Opener
      Cardinal cruise past UC Santa Cruz in three games.

      Jan. 6, 2004

      SANTA CRUZ, Calif - The Stanford University men's volleyball team opened the
      season with a three-game sweep of UC Santa Cruz. The Cardinal, who swept the
      Banana Slugs to open the season last year, won by scores of 30-21, 30-18,
      and 30-17.

      The Cardinal, led by the strong play of sophomore outside hitter Ben Reddy,
      registered a .304 hitting percentage, while holding the hosts to a .052
      percentage. Reddy paced the Stanford attack with a career-high 11 kills and
      recorded a .429 hitting percentage on the night.

      "We had our first game mistakes, but on the whole it was a good match and
      got us off to a good start." said Stanford Head Coach Don Shaw.

      Stanford will now pack its bags for Santa Barbara where the Cardinal will
      participate in the UCSB/Elephant Bar Collegiate Invitational this weekend.
      The Cardinal will be the No. 8 seed in the UCSB tournament and will take on
      No. 1 seeded Long Beach State in the first round of the tournament on
      January 9th at 7:00 pm. Stanford will then play again at 10:00 a.m. in
      either the championship or consolation semifinals and will conclude
      tournament play with another match Saturday evening. Last season, the
      Cardinal went 1-2 in the tournament to finish in sixth place.
