Women’s Volleyball Sweeps Buckeyes

The Ohio State Buckeyes entered Rec Hall last night with a No. 14 national ranking and a four match winning streak. However, they were no match for the No 2. Penn State Women’s Volleyball team, who defeated the Buckeyes in straight sets (25-18, 25,16, 25-14) Wednesday night.

While the sets were close early on, the Buckeyes could not keep up with the Nittany Lions who took care of things pretty easily with Ariel Scott and Deja McClendon leading the way with 15 and 11 kills respectively. Sophomore Micha Hancock, who has been named Big Ten Setter of the Week multiple times this season, contributed 3 aces while Katie Slay and Megan Courtney added 5 blocks apiece to the winning effort. This marks the fifth time in six matches that the Nittany Lions have been victorious in a sweep, only dropping a set to Purdue last Saturday.

Having already clinched the conference title and an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament, the Nittany Lions will try to finish off their two-loss regular season with a home match Saturday night against Michigan State beginning at 8:30 p.m.
