Penn State jumped out to a quick lead in the first set tonight, spurred on by tough blocking by 6-6 Fr. MH Katie Slay, 6-5 Sr. Opp. Blair Brown, and 6-5 Fr. OH Ariel Scott, and kept the pressure on for a 3-0 defeat of the Michigan Wolverines.
And . . . Northwestern swept Illinois! If Penn State beats Michigan State tomorrow night, they’ll be only one match behind Illinois in the Big Ten standings, with a match against the Illini still to come in Rec Hall. Stay tuned!
