Women’s Volleyball Downs Indiana In Straight Sets

The No. 2 women’s volleyball team defeated Indiana in straight sets at Rec Hall on Saturday night, allowing just 16 points in the first set and 11 points in both the second and third sets. The Hoosiers have just one win in the Big Ten this season while Penn State improves to 13 consecutive conference wins.

After being tied at 4-4 in the first set, Indiana would not get within one point of Penn State for the rest of the set. Two kills from Megan Courtney helped Penn State take a seven point lead over Indiana. The Hoosiers rallied to within five with help from two Nittany Lion attack errors, but an ace from Micha Hancock helped Penn State extend its lead to eight points. A block from Deja McClendon sealed the set at 25-16.

The Nittany Lions came out to an 11-2 lead in the second set, but the run was stopped after a kill from the Hoosiers. Indiana made two attack errors to extend Penn State’s lead to 13-3. Back-to-back kills from freshman Paulina Prieto Cerame brought Penn State to set point. Indiana had a kill of its own, but Prieto Cerame finished the set with a block.

Indiana stayed close to Penn State early on in the third set 5-4, but a 4-0 run put the Nittany Lions out of reach. A Hoosiers kill was offset by another Penn State run giving the team a 15-6 lead. Penn State closed out the third set with a 25-11 win.

Eight Nittany Lions recorded kills in the win. Katie Slay led the team with five blocks, while Prieto Cerame had three solo blocks. McClendon led the team in kills with nine. When the two teams met in Indiana earlier in the season, Penn State held Indiana to just eight points in the third set.

Penn State faces Wisconsin and Minnesota next weekend in two road games.
