Good Night Knights

In a packed College Ave. Gym on Friday evening (more than 1500 in attendance — reportedly, over half of them Penn State fans) #1-ranked Penn State (23-2, 12-2 in the B1G) swept the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (4-21, 1-12 in the B1G) 25-19, 25-17, 25-12.  6-4 RS Sr. MB Aiyana Whitney continued her over-the-moon performance of late, with 12 kills (.455 attack %), and a team-high 6 total blocks, while 6-1 So. OH Ali Frantti chipped in 10 kills (and an excellent .643 attack %), with 5 digs and 3 blocks.  6-3 So. MB Haleigh Washington put down 7 kills (.700 attack %).  6-0 RS Fr. setter Bryanna Weiskircher totaled 33 assists, leading the team to a .374 attack %.  She also registered 8 digs and 1 block.  5-6 Fr. libero Keeton Holcomb came up with a team-high 9 digs.

For Rutgers, 6-1 So. OH Meme Fletcher  totaled a match-high 15 kills, a .360 attack %, and a match-high 15 digs (she led her team in kills for the 18th match this season.  Can you say “she’s legit”?).  The Scarlet Knights’ 5-10 Sr. setter Anna Sudbury dished 34 assists, while 5-5 Sr. DS Ali Schroeter came up with 10 digs, upping her Rutgers all-time career lead in digs to 1532.
