Women’s Volleyball Juggernaut Keeps On Going

It’s fitting that “Aloha” means goodbye as well as hello, because for a while tonight, it looked as though the Penn State Women’s Volleyball team could have been saying the former while squaring off against No.3 ranked Hawaii in the NCAA Semifinals. The team turned it around after dropping the first set to take the next three and hand Coach Rose his 1000th career victory.  With the win, the team pushes their consecutive match win streak to 101.

The Lady Lions move on to this year’s final to face the #2 seed, University of Texas this Saturday. The team has its sights set on a third national championship in as many years, and with their momentum, they just might have Texas saying “Aloha”.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”

Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
