      Stanford Concludes 2006 Home Schedule This Weekend Against No. 6 UCLA, No. 1
      UC Irvine

      Don Shaw will be honored before the Friday night match against UCLA, while
      Saturday night's match against UC Irvine will be Senior Night.

      April 5, 2006

      Stanford, Calif. - Stanford (4-20, 2-16 MPSF) will conclude its home
      schedule hosting No. 6 UCLA on Friday night and No. 1 UC Irvine on Saturday
      night. Both matches will begin at 7 p.m. in Burnham Pavilion, and will have
      honorary ceremonies preceding the first serve.

      Friday night we will honor head coach Don Shaw who will be retiring after
      the 2006 season. Shaw has been coaching both men's and women's volleyball
      teams at Stanford for 26 years, and boasts numerous accolades, including
      four National Championships with the women's program. Under Shaw's guidance,
      21 student-athletes have been honored as All-Americans.

      UCLA enters Friday's match ranked No. 6 in the country and riding a four
      match win streak. The Bruins are sitting in seventh place in the MPSF and
      battling to stay in the top eight in the conference, as the top eight teams
      make the conference playoffs. This week, senior Nick Scheftic was named the
      AVCA and MPSF Player of the Week after recording 22 kills (.500), three aces
      and seven total blocks in victories over then No. 6 Long Beach State and UC
      San Diego.

      On Saturday night Stanford will honor its senior class: middle blocker Chris
      Ahlfeldt, setter Jeremy Jacobs, opposite Ben Reddy, and outside hitters Nick
      Manov and William Clayton.

      UC Irvine (23-3, 16-2 MPSF) enters Saturday's match with a No. 1 national
      ranking, sitting in first place in the MPSF, and with a 17-match win streak.
      Sophomore middle blocker Aaron Harrell who is hitting .608 over the last
      five outings has recently led the Anteaters.
