Freshman right side Jonni Parker led the Nittany Lions with 11 kills, while Nia Reed, Kaitlyn Hord, and Taylor Leath added seven apiece. Serena Gray and Allyson Cathey combined for nine kills to round out the scoring.

Kendall White paced Penn State’s defense with a match-high 16 digs and three assists. Reed and Gray each had a team-high three blocks against the Wildcats, who fell to 14-13 on the season.
