Penn State Women’s Volleyball Moves to #1
Russ Rose’s team received 34 first-place votes in the poll, with #2 Oregon getting 16, and #3 USC with 3 votes. The team’s record (12-1) has just one setback, a loss to Oregon State a few weeks ago. Otherwise, the girls are undefeated at home and within the Big Ten Conference.
In addition, sophomore Micha Hancock received Big Ten Honors as best co-setter of the week for the 2nd time this season.
The Lions have defeated three current top ten opponents and will look to build on this momentum as conference play heats up. Their next game is this Friday against Wisconsin at 8 p.m. They also face Minnesota, Northwestern, and Illinois on the road before returning to Rec Hall on Friday, October 12th at 8 p.m. versus Purdue.
