Haleigh Washington Leads Penn State Women’s Volleyball Past Indiana

No. 1 Penn State women’s volleyball continued its winning ways by defeating Indiana in straight sets at Rec Hall on Wednesday night. The Nittany Lions cruised in this one 25-21, 25-16, 25-16.

Senior Haleigh Washington led the way with 10 kills in an efficient all-around game. With the win, the Nittany Lions extended their winning streak to 16 straight matches in Big Ten play.

How It Happened

At the start, Indiana was able to keep pace with an experienced Penn State squad. Going up against a team that starts five seniors, the Hoosiers were neck-and-neck with the Nittany Lions until the end of the first set. Penn State pulled away at the end though thanks to a beautiful kill off the hand of Simone Lee that gave it a 25-21 win in the first set.

The second game had the Nittany Lions’ superior experience on full display. Penn State flew through the set and eventually took it 25-16. The blue and white finished things off thanks to Washington’s solid showing down the stretch. She had four kills in the third game, including the final kill that won it for Penn State.
