Three Penn State Women’s Volleyball Stars To Return For 2024 Season

Penn State women’s volleyball seniors Camryn Hannah, Jess Mruzik, and Taylor Trammell announced their plans to remain in Happy Valley for their bonus seasons of eligibility in 2024.

Hannah, Mruzik, and Trammell each transferred from other universities before their time at Rec Hall. Hannah has been with the Nittany Lions since her transfer from Purdue in 2021, while Mruzik and Trammell transferred from Michigan and Clemson this past offseason, respectively.

Middle blocker Allie Holland, meanwhile, announced her retirement from volleyball on social media Sunday.

Hannah, an opposite hitter, registered 325 kills through 111 sets played in 2023. She recorded a .257 hitting percentage this season. Outside hitter Mruzik posted 519 kills and 270 digs in her single season so far in Happy Valley. She was named a unanimous All-Big Ten first-team selection and the AVCA National Player of the Week in September. Middle blocker Trammell tallied 190 kills through 120 sets played with a .358 hitting percentage.

The Nittany Lions’ season came to a close in the NCAA Tournament Regional Semifinal at the hand of No. 3 Wisconsin. Penn State came out victorious against Yale and No. 15 Kansas to advance to the Regional Semifinal.
