Penn State Women’s Volleyball Ranked As A Top Tradition in College Sports

The Penn State women’s volleyball team’s pregame ritual was regarded as one of the 20 best traditions in college sports by MSN Sports.

Before every game, the seven-time national champions gather behind the bleachers and slap their hands on it. Then, the team runs a couple laps around the entire gymnasium as the Nittany Lion faithfully cheers while the players break into their warm-ups and pregame drills.

After warm-ups, the squad forms at the center of the court, where it lifts the smallest player on the team high over the net. Although a general Penn State sports tradition, it also listed that following every game, the team and fans join together to sing the school’s Alma Mater.

The other 19 traditions listed were from football or basketball programs, so while it might not be a well-known aspect of the game-day experience in Rec Hall, it’s certainly become relevant through the years as the team has risen to its powerhouse heights.
