PSU Women’s Volleyball Continues B1G Domination

The top-ranked Penn State women’s volleyball team continued its domination of the Big Ten over the weekend, sweeping both Wisconsin and #10 Minnesota on the road. Penn State is now 14-1 overall and 4-0 in the conference.

Penn State beat an upstart Wisconsin team 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-7) on Friday night. Junior Deja McClendon led the team with 14 kills, eclipsing the 1000 kill mark for her career in the first set. Katie Slay had 4 blocks, and sophomore Micha Hancock had a team-high 3 aces.

The Lions continued their run through the Big Ten with a 3-0 (25-23, 25-8, 25-20) win against the 10th-ranked Golden Gophers on Saturday night. McClendon, Slay, and Ariel Scott each had nine kills, and Nia Grant led with nine blocks. Penn State had a .404 hitting percentage while holding Minnesota to just .097. Russ Rose’s squad is now 4-0 against Top 10 teams this year.

The Lions continue their road trip next weekend at Northwestern on Friday and #21 Illinois on Saturday before returning to Rec Hall on October 12th and 13th to face #13 Purdue and Indiana. Six of their next eight matches will be on the road.
