Penn State Earns Another Weekend Sweep

The No. 1 Penn State Women’s Volleyball team extended its winning streak to nine games over the weekend, as they defeated both Northwestern and #21 Illinois.

The Nittany Lions handed a struggling Wildcats side their 4th loss in 5 Big Ten games on Friday night, winning in straight sets (25-23, 25-18, 25-23). They were led by Katie Slay’s 11 kills, .500 hitting percentage, and seven blocks. Setter Micha Hancock led the team with 36 assists. The match will be replayed on the Big Ten Network on Monday Oct. 8 at 4 p.m.

Saturday, Penn State defeated an Illinois team that they hadn’t beat since 2010. The final score was 3-2 (23-25, 25-18, 25-21, 24-26, 18-16). Ariel Scott led the way with 19 kills, while Slay and Deja McClendon have 15 apiece. The win gave Penn State their league-leading sixth conference win, and improved its record to 16-1 overall.

Penn State is back at home this weekend for the only time during the month of October. They play #12 Purdue on Friday at 8 p.m., and Indiana on Saturday at 7 p.m. Friday’s game has been designated as a “Throwback Game,” with the first 200 students receiving a free pink and black PSU Volleyball t-shirt.

Come out to support the Lions as they continue their dominance of the Big Ten!
