All during preseason we were looking forward to the start of Big Ten season and the home opener against Nebraska. This was a game that was highly anticipated by both teams and by volleyball fans everywhere.
We spent the days leading up the match this week preparing as team, watching film and practicing hard. Nebraska is a great team full of talented players, so we knew going in it was going to be a tough match.
I couldn't be more proud of my team after the victory Wednesday night. There are still some things we need to get better at as a team, but I ultimately think we fought well as a whole. Long rallies kept the Penn State faithful on the edge of their seats. Consistency is definitely something we need to work on, but Wednesday was the first big step towards our goal of reclaiming the Big Ten title. Go State!
