The Penn State men's volleyball team was busy last week. After losing to Ohio State on Wednesday, the Nittany Lions grabbed two wins against conference foes last weekend. Next up for Penn State is two matches with small schools from North Carolina.

After being taken down by Ohio State, the Nittany Lions faced off against Rutgers-Newark on Friday night and handed the Scarlet Raiders a 3-1 defeat. Saturday night, the Princeton Tigers rolled into town and were slapped with a 3-0 loss in a game that featured contributions from some unfamiliar players.

She calls me sixteen times a day just to make sure that I'm still breathing, to check that I'm going to class, and to find out any new dirt on my younger brother's life.

Swardson’s Film Career Explodes in a Burst of Laughter
