Penn State Women’s Volleyball Sweeps Rutgers Again

No. 4 Penn State women’s volleyball swept Rutgers for the second time this week Saturday night, prevailing 3-0 (25-23, 25-14, 25-17) in New Brunswick.

Russ Rose’s Nittany Lions have now won eight matches in a row in Big Ten play.

How It Happened

Redshirt senior outside hitter Nia Reed extended her double-digit kills streak to five matches with 11 against the Scarlet Knights. Penn State hit .379 as a team in College Avenue Gymnasium.

Despite dealing with a pesky Rutgers squad that hung around until late in the first set, the Nittany Lions found their rhythm and easily took care of business in the second and third sets.

Taylor Leath turned in a strong showing with 10 kills, seven digs, and a block in the victory, while Jonni Parker added 10 kills, four digs, two blocks, and a service ace. Fellow freshmen Serena Gray, Kaitlyn Hord, and Allyson Cathey combined for 15 kills.

Junior libero Kendall White finished with a match-high 10 digs for the Nittany Lions. Bryanna Weiskircher didn’t have any kills versus Rutgers, but the redshirt senior setter tallied a match-high 40 assists and three digs.
