No. 1 Penn State Women's Volleyball Sweeps Rutgers

by on November 19, 2017 11:45 AM

No. 1 Penn State women’s volleyball swept Rutgers for the second time this season Saturday night in New Brunswick, dominating the Scarlet Knights 25-5, 25-9, 25-9.

Russ Rose’s Nittany Lions extended their winning streak to 17 straight matches, as Simone Lee put together a huge performance. Penn State is now 27-1 on the year.

How It Happened

Penn State put on a clinic against the Scarlet Knights, hitting .537 as a team thanks in large part to Lee’s massive outing. She led the way in kills with 17 on just 20 swings, while adding four digs, three blocks, and an assist. A large contingency of backups were able to see action too.

On the defensive end, sophomore libero Kendall White paced Penn State with a match-high 15 digs. In reality, Rutgers (5-25) never came close against the Nittany Lions, failing to reach double digits in any of the three sets. Abby Detering and Bryanna Weiskircher continued to split the setter duties with ease, tallying 20 and 15 assists, respectively.
