It is unlikely Stanford will participate in the spring season. Santa Clara county has prohibited all sports teams from having events and practicing for the next three weeks. Everyone expects this to be extended through at least January unless Covid miraculously goes away. It basically makes it impossible for any Stanford sports to continue until the policy ends.

“We felt there was nothing to hide,” said Barry Alvarez, the Wisconsin athletic director. Wisconsin recorded at least 112 cases in athletics, missed back-to-back football games during an outbreak and had a third game — against Minnesota — canceled because of cases within its program. “We felt that it was in our best interest and everyone else’s best interest to put out accurate information, particularly if we had to cancel a game, so you wouldn’t have rumors or misinformation,” Alvarez said.
I'm with Barry Alvarez (and transparency) on this one.

The Big West Conference including Hawaii has cancelled all sports that were planned to be played in the spring. So no Hawaii volleyball in the spring. This is the first domino of many to fall over the next month.
But she was, in her most heroic moves, not passing 3's, most times not even 2's. For her heroics to pay off, she needed setters and the hitters to be ready to scramble and make use of her sacrifices. Without them, she would have earned far less recognition. No L in Team. lol.
