Nothing like a little domination

Submitted by on November 7, 20082 Comments

Domination?! You want domination? Try this for a change. Penn State women’s volleyball squad, the very same squad that won the national title last season, is currently undefeated at 25-0 this year and about to steamroll their way into the NCAA tournament this December.

But wait, that’s not even the best part. In their 25-0 campaign this season, they have dropped 0 matches. Now read that again. “0″. To put this in perspective, women’s volleyball is won in a best out of 5 matches series in each game. Now, in 25 games, this Penn State women’s volleyball squad has lost a total of 0 matches amassing a match record of whatever 25 times 3 is. Thats right, 75 straight matches won (and that doesn’t even count their win streak from last season’s national championship run).

These ladies have 7 more regular season games to play before they start the NCAA tournament portion of their schedule where they will be heavily favored to advance to the title game. Of those 7 games only 2 are home at Rec Hall on November 21st and 22nd against Northwestern and Wisconsin respectively. Take this opportunity to catch these women in action, they are arguably one of the most dominating sports teams to every grace Penn State. If it helps, the ladies on our volleyball squad are HOT. Don’t take my word for it, go check them out for yourselves.

With their sweep of Indiana 2 nights ago the women’s Penn State volleyball squad holds a 51 consecutive-match win streak which can be tied at 52 tonight against Michigan State with Southern California who set the NCAA record at 52. Well done ladies.

Go State!

    not to be picky – but, they are 25-0 in match play – having not dropped a game (sometimes called set).

    regardless – they are awesome – if anyone is in town for the msu game – you should really go see them play.

    Early rounds of the NCAA tournament – and regionals (dec 12-13) will be at rec hall as well.
