AAU Sullivan Awards: Plummer Takes Home the Hardware.

Stanford volleyball player Kathryn Plummer was named the 2019 AAU Sullivan Award winner during a ceremony on Tuesday in New York City.

This adds to the long list of awards Plummer has racked up this season which includes the AVCA Player of the Year, ESPNW Player of the Year and Pac-12 Player of the Year. To top it all off Plummer helped lead her team to the NCAA National Championship where Stanford defeated Nebraska for their 8th title.

Asked what volleyball means to her Plummer said, “Volleyball shapes my life in almost everything I do. My teammates become my family, and the support I receive from everyone around me makes me appreciate the sport even more. It is a sport that brings new challenges every day and it is always fun to learn and break new barriers.”

Plummer beat out a strong class of finalists which included McKenzie Milton from UCF, Mikaela Foecke from Nebraska, Rachael Garcia from UCLA, Luke Maye from UNC, Aleia Hobbs from LSU, Townley Haas from Texas, and Morgan Hurd who competes as a part of the USA Gymnastics team. All of these finalists were well-deserving and each has made an incredible impact on their sport and their community.
