Women’s Volleyball Sweeps Ohio State 3-0

The Penn State Women’s Volleyball team had not lost a set to Ohio State in the last ten matches. That dominance continued last night in Columbus as the top ranked Nittany Lions defeated the No. 20 Buckeyes in straight sets (25-21,25-19, 25-22). Each set was close, but Russ Rose’s squad was able to come away with the sweep behind strong performances from juniors Ariel Scott and Katie Slay.

Despite the lead often changing early on in first set, the Lions went on a 6-2 run to take a 15-11 lead and never looked back. The Buckeyes came within one to make the score 19-18, but the Lions pulled away to 24-19 and closed things out on the third set point attempt.

The second set started off rough for the home squad as the Lions jumped out to a 5-0 lead forcing a Buckeyes timeout. The Buckeyes would soon end what became a 7-0 run, scoring 6 unanswered points  due to a few service errors. They managed to even things up at 11 but would trail the rest of the way as the Lions took the set 25-19.

The third set went back and forth, but the Lions managed to win 25-22. Scott and Slay had 14 kills apiece while Dominique Gonzalez added a team high 15 digs.

The Lions extended their winning streak over Ohio State to 11 matches and have swept 12 of the last 16 meetings between the schools.

The road trip continues Saturday in Ann Arbor as the Nittany Lions attempt to remain undefeated in conference play facing a Michigan squad that will enter with a 16-7 overall record and a 4-5 showing in the Big Ten.
