Women’s Volleyball Splits Weekend Games

The Penn State women’s volleyball team is not used to losing Big Ten matches. The last time they did was Nov. 11, 2006 to Iowa. That all changed last Friday when the Nittany Lions had their 65-match conference winning streak snapped by Illinois.

Penn State lost a close 5-set match to Illinois, 3-2 (25-17, 14-25, 19-25, 25-14, 15-17). The Lions started out strong on the road and won the first set, but Illinois took sets two and three. The Nittany Lions won the fourth to set up a decisive final set. The teams battled and the lead went back and forth. Penn State seemed to have control at 13-11, but Illinois would come back to win the match.

Penn State regrouped and traveled to Wisconsin for a match on Sunday. They were able to rebound from the loss to beat Wisconsin 3-0 (25-15, 25-17, 25-21). Senior Blair Brown, freshman Deja McClendon, and senior Arielle Wilson all had double-digit kills. The team dug and served well to comfortably pull out the victory.

The Nittany Lions return home next weekend to play the Michigan teams. So come out and support the volleyball team as they try to improve on their 11-2 record!

Upcoming schedule:

Friday: vs. Michigan State, 7 p.m.
Saturday: vs. Michigan, 6 p.m.
