0 Weekend Winning for Women’s Volleyball

The No. 9 Penn State women’s volleyball team recorded weekend sweeps over Wisconsin and No. 10 Minnesota at Rec Hall. With these two victories, the Nittany Lions improved their overall record to 10-4 and their Big Ten record to 3-1.

The Nittany Lions were nowhere near perfect over the weekend. Several times they looked susceptible to big runs which kept Wisconsin in the match; however, they have won nine consecutive sets. Dropping early sets, which was a problem earlier in the year, has been corrected for the moment.

0 What’s Next for Women’s Volleyball?

The Penn State Women’s Volleyball team dropped its Big Ten opener last night at No. 10 Nebraska. Attempting to recover after digging an early 0-2 hole, the fifth ranked Nittany Lions fell just short of pulling off their second five set, comeback victory in a month.

Unlike the memorable USC match, played at Rec Hall on August 27, fifth set magic would elude the Nittany Lions as the Cornhuskers hung on for the win.

0 Fountain of Youth for Women’s Volleyball

Trailing two sets to zero and staring at the possibility of an 0-2 start to the season, a familiar face was introduced to the Rec Hall crowd during the Penn State vs. USC Women’s Volleyball match last Saturday night. Four-time national champion and 2010 National Player of the year Blair Brown was presented with an award from Penn State athletic director Tim Curley. Spectators roared in approval, but Brown was not suited up in uniform to help the struggling Nittany Lions. The Nittany Lions stormed back by winning three straight sets to shock No. 2 USC and send a message that a new era of Penn State volleyball is underway.
