STANFORD, Calif. – Senior outside hitter Kathryn Plummer has been named VolleyballMag.com's National Player of the Year, the news outlet announced today.

Plummer is a repeat winner of the award, capping off her collegiate career leading Stanford to back-to-back championships and its third NCAA title in four seasons. The Aliso Viejo, California, native collects the 23rd national player of the year honor for the Cardinal all-time.

The Most Outstanding Player at the 2019 NCAA final four, Plummer averaged 6.75 kills per set on .416 hitting, 2.60 digs per set, 1.10 blocks per set and 7.70 points per set in the postseason. She finished with 22 kills on .459 hitting, 10 digs and three blocks in the championship sweep over No. 5 Wisconsin.

For the season, Plummer, who missed 10 matches due to injury, hit .330 with 5.22 kills, 1.92 digs and 5.79 points per set. She was not eligible for Pac-12 or AVCA postseason awards due to minimum matches/sets played requirements during the regular season.

Plummer was joined on the VolleyballMag.com's first team by seniors Jenna Gray and Morgan Hentz. Middle blocker Madeleine Gates was a third-team pick, while Audriana Fitzmorris and Meghan McClure were honorable mention.
