Ten-year trend

Might the numbers be aligned for Stanford in 2014?

The Cardinal lost a five-set thriller to Pac-12 rival UCLA in the 1984 NCAA Championship. Ten years later, in 1994, Stanford finished a 32-1 campaign with a victory against UCLA in the NCAA title match. Marnie Triefenbach and Kristin Folkl combined for 48 kills in the four-set win. A decade later, in 2004, it was the Cardinal beating Minnesota in straight sets to claim the national crown. Oganna Nnamani buried the Gophers with 29 kills.

Stanford also won NCAA titles in 1992, 1996, 1997, and 2001. Stanford has lost in the championship match eight times.

Might 2014 be Stanford’s seventh overall and continue an every-10-year trend?
