Women’s Volleyball on Three Game Winning Streak

The Penn State women’s volleyball team started a new winning streak this past weekend after dominating their competition in the Rockvale Outlets Classic held here at Penn State.

The new streak began last Friday when the Nittany Lions took on George Washington. On the back of freshman Deja McClendon’s 15 kills, Penn State dominated the Colonials and won 3-0 (25-12, 25-5, 25-13). Any fear of a letdown after a loss to Stanford was quickly stifled by an impressive performance against George Washington University.

Penn State continued on Saturday morning with another powerful showing against Princeton. The Nittany Lions started out fast and never looked back in another 3-0 sweep (25-8, 25-8, 25-13). Several of the reserves got extended playing time. Freshman Mikinzie Moydell had 17 assists and freshman Maddie Martin had six kills. Junior Megan Shifflett was able to come in and get an ace as well.

St. John’s was Penn State’s opponent on Saturday night, and they too did not offer much resistance. Great serving and blocking led to a third-straight sweep, 3-0 (25-11, 25-15, 25-5). Penn State dominated the net and senior Alyssa D’Errico served five aces to help Penn State win the Rockvale Outlets Classic.

Penn State begins Big 10 play on the road next weekend, highlighted by a match-up against fifth-ranked Illinois.

Upcoming schedule:

Friday: at Illinois, 8 p.m.
Sunday: at Wisconsin, 2 p.m.
