For the third season in a row, Penn State’s Women’s Volleyball team is national champion. Going undefeated for the second straight season, the team won their record-setting 102nd straight match in a new fashion. Down 0-2 to #2 seed Texas, the team battled back to win the final three sets to take home the championship. The team hadn’t been down 0-2 since losing to Nebraska on September 2, 2007. Sporting 5 All-Americans and Player of the Year Megan Hodge, the team began the season ranked #1 and never let it go.
The victory gives Coach Russ Rose his 4th national championship. It’s hard to believe that this time 3 years ago, he only had one.
From all of us at here at Onward State, congratulations to the players, coaches, and fans of Penn State Volleyball. My only question: when does men’s season start?
