Women’s Volleyball Defeats Indiana in Straight Sets

Penn State’s fifth-ranked women’s volleyball team played Indiana in Bloomington on Thursday night, with the Nittany Lions sweeping the Hoosiers, 3-0.

The match started with the two teams going point-for-point in the first set, until Penn State took a 6-4 lead. Indiana would not get within two points for the rest of the set. Penn State was able to stretch its lead to 11-5 after three consecutive kills from Deja McClendon. Indiana got close later in the set after two kills and an attack error from Ariel Scott, cutting Penn State’s lead to four, but the Nittany Lions imposed its will on the Hoosiers, winning the set, 25-18.

The second set featured a rough start for Penn State. The Nittany Lions scored first, but after that, Indiana went on a 4-0 run. Indiana stretched its lead 10-6, but Penn State was resilient, and a kill and a service ace from Micha Hancock helped the Nittany Lions tie the set at 10. Indiana took a 14-12 later in the set, but the Nittany Lions tied it up with two Courtney kills. Penn State went on a run thanks to three Indiana errors, and three kills from McClendon and two blocks from Katie Slay ended the set, 25-19.

After the break, Penn State came out with an impressive 9-0 run led by three Hancock service aces and two McClendon kills. A Hancock service error gave Indiana its first point, but Penn State bounced back. Courtney had five kills and Hancock had two blocks to put Penn State up 20-5, and Penn State won the set 25-8 after a kill from Courtney.

Penn State returns to the court this Saturday, when they travel to West Lafayette, Indiana and take on 24th ranked Purdue.
