Class of 2019 recruit Maddi Kriz has committed to play beach volleyball at Stanford. Kriz would join the Cardinal for the fall of 2019 with her freshman season in the sand coming in the spring of 2020.
A senior-to-be this upcoming fall, Kriz attends Round Rock Westwood High School in Austin, Texas.
