Women’s Volleyball Picks Up Weekend Sweep

The 4th ranked Penn State women’s volleyball team remained undefeated this weekend, taking down two top-10 opponents on back-to-back nights in the Rockvale Outlets Nike Big Four Volleyball Classic.

First up was 9th ranked Stanford on Friday night. It took 5 sets to take down the Cardinals, a team Penn State hasn’t beaten since the 2008 National Championship match. Ariel Scott had an eye-popping 26 kills while sophomore and first-year starter Lacey Fuller tacked on 10 digs.

Penn State didn’t have any time to congratulate themselves, though, as powerhouse 2nd ranked Texas rolled into Rec Hall the following night. Penn State took advantage of the energy in the building to sweep the Longhorns in 3 sets. Ariel Scott once again led the Lions with 12 kills, giving her a team-high 72 on the season. Freshman Meagan Courtney impressed the home crowd as well, with 8 digs behind Fuller’s 9.

If this weekend is any indication, Penn State has their sights firmly set on their fifth National Championship in six years. Penn State will continue their season next weekend in Chicago, where they’ll face DePaul, Oregon State, and Illinois-Chicago.
