No. 1 Penn State Women’s Volleyball Sweeps Maryland Again

No. 1 Penn State women’s volleyball swept Maryland for the second time this season, topping the Terrapins 25-14, 25-21, 25-16 Saturday night in Rec Hall.

Russ Rose’s Nittany Lions extended their winning streak to 15 straight matches in Big Ten play, as Simone Lee led the way with a double-double.

How It Happened

Fans turned out in droves for this Homecoming clash — so much so that venue personnel were forced to open the track for standing room. Announced attendance was 6,305 — a season high. Penn State made the most of its limited opportunities in the first set, dialing up a scorching .471 hitting percentage.

Maryland head coach Steve Aird is a familiar face, having played on the men’s volleyball team at Penn State around the turn of the century and working under Rose from 2007-2014. The Terps put together a stronger showing in the second set, but Penn State still took a 2-0 advantage into the intermission.

Sophomore outside hitter Gia Milana delivered a match-high 14 kills for the Terrapins, but it wasn’t enough to make much of a dent in Penn State’s sizeable lead. The Nittany Lions wrapped things up thanks to a convincing win in the third set.

Player Of The Match

Simone Lee | Senior | Outside hitter

Lee paced Penn State’s offense with 10 kills, while also adding a match-high 13 digs, two service aces, and two blocks.

What’s Next?

The Nittany Lions (25-1) are back in Rec Hall for the final time of the regular season Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. as they host Indiana. Penn State swept the Hoosiers in Bloomington on Oct. 21.
