Wopats part of No. 2 Stanford’s streak-snapper

Former Dos Pueblos volleyball stars Carly and Sam Wopat are just a couple of weeks into their college careers at Stanford, but the twins have already experienced a monumental victory.

The Cardinal snapped No. 1 Penn State’s 109-match winning streak on Saturday with a 28-26, 25-12, 25-18 win in the championship game of the Nike Big Four Volleyball Classic in Gainesville, FL.

Carly, a middle blocker, recorded four kills on seven swings and had three aces with two block assists. Sam got in the match briefly and recorded an assist.

The No. 2 Cardinal is now 7-0 on the season. Carly leads the team with seven aces and is hitting a team-high .471, having started every match. Sam, who is playing behind a pair of All-American upperclassmen at the outside hitter spot, has appeared in three matches.
