Former Women’s Volleyballers Show Some Skin

The ESPN the Magazine body issue hit stands last Friday. If you’ve ever seen a women’s volleyball game at Rec Hall, you know the spandex uniforms don’t leave much to the imagination. But you’ve never seen them like this. This year’s “The Body” issue includes two former Penn State Women’s Volleyball players completely nude. Megan Hodge and Alisha Glass posed for the special, along with five of their current Olympic-bound teammates.

Both Hodge and Glass had exemplary careers at Penn State, and continue to make strides on the National team. Hodge, an outside hitter, was a four time All-American, and was named NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player in 2007 and 2008. She might be remembered best as having the NCAA Championship-winning kills in 2007 and 2009. Glass, a setter, was a two time All-American. The two were in the same graduating class, and played from 2006-2009 together. Both have played on the U.S. National team since then.

The two are the first Nittany Lions to be featured in “The Body” issue, which began in 2009. While some find the magazine uncomfortable, Hodge thinks the pictures “celebrate women” and are “something to be proud of”. Bleacher Report recently named Glass one of the 50 hottest American Olympians.

While the ladies may have been looking for their favorite Penn State football player in nothing but their birthday suit, they’ll have to wait. There’s always next year.
