Home Cooking for Women’s Volleyball

The Penn State women’s volleyball  team continued their dominance at home, winning both of their matches this past weekend. The victories came against Indiana and Purdue, both of whom had beaten the Nittany Lions earlier in the season.

Penn State faced off against Indiana as a prelude to Rally in the Valley on Friday night. The large crowd on hand witnessed a Penn State sweep, 3-0 (25-17, 25-18, 25-22). The Nittany Lions comfortably won the first two sets, but had to battle back from a third-set deficit to complete the sweep. Senior Blair Brown led Penn State with 16 kills. Freshman Ariel Scott had her best match of the season, posting nine.

Purdue provided a stiffer test for Penn State on Saturday. After winning the first two sets, Purdue took the third to extend the match. The Nittany Lions rebounded and won the fourth, and the match, 3-1 (25-16, 25-21, 23-25, 25-23). Brown dominated the stat sheet for the second game in a row, grabbing a career-high 23 kills. The team played well on defense, too, with four players getting double-digit digs.

Penn State has now won 86 straight home matches and have improved their record to 19-4. The Nittany Lions have also moved into a tie for second in the Big Ten with a record of 9-3. They face a tough trip to Michigan next week, and wins will be necessary to stay in the hunt for a Big Ten Championship.

Upcoming schedule:

Friday: at Michigan, 7 p.m.
Saturday: at Michigan State, 6:30 p.m.
