Four Women’s Volleyball Standouts Land All-Big Ten Honors

Four Nittany Lions earned postseason recognition Tuesday afternoon. Juniors Simone Lee and Haleigh Washington were unanimous All-Big Ten selections, while Tori Gorrell and Kendall White grabbed spots on the All-Freshman Team.

Senior defensive specialist Laura Broerman represented Penn State on the conference’s Sportsmanship Award list. Washington leads the Big Ten with in hitting percentage (.438) and it’s not even close. Her nearest competitor, Wisconsin’s Haleigh Nelson, currently sits at .375 on the season.

Lee is fourth in the conference with a team-high 455 kills for the Nittany Lions from her outside hitter spot. She’s just 14 kills away from tying Ariel Scott (2012) for fourth place in the program’s single-season record books during the 25-point rally scoring era.

White is having a heck of a debut campaign for Penn State. The true freshman immediately assumed starting libero duties for Russ Rose upon her arrival from Indianapolis. Right now, she’s sixth in the Big Ten with 438 digs in 2016. Gorrell, a redshirt freshman who hails from Oakville, Ontario, is second on the team with 110 total blocks — behind only Wasington’s 124. Gorrell also posted a team-fifth 185 kills during the regular season.

The No. 16 seed Nittany Lions (22-9, 14-6 Big Ten) open their 36th straight NCAA Tournament this Friday at 7:30 against LIU Brooklyn in Rec Hall.
