It was an incredible weekend for Arizona State, who moved up to No. 15 from No. 21 in the latest AVCA Coaches Poll. The team swept both Cal and No. 3 Stanford, keeping ASU undefeated at home this season. The win over the Cardinal was the Sun Devils’ first sweep over them since 1993 (second ever) and handed Stanford its first conference loss. The two sweeps this weekend got ASU to 15 sweeps on the year, which is tied with 2013 for the highest number of three-set wins in a single season. The squad got win 21, which is the most wins this century at Arizona State and is the sixth-highest win total in program history.
Levinska continued her offensive prowess, notching double figures in both wins. She led all players in kills in both matches and moved up to ninth in the ASU record book for career kills in the process. She has reached double figures in all but two matches this season, including the last nine in a row. With a team-high 12 digs against Stanford, she got her fourth double-double of the year.
