Led by senior captain Inky Ajanaku and a cast of long, lanky freshmen, the Stanford Cardinal won their record-tying 7th NCAA title in Division I women’s volleyball. The team was not only the youngest team in history to win the national title, but they were also the youngest team in history to even advance to the Final 4.
