The No. 9 Penn State women's volleyball team swept No. 21 Michigan in Rec Hall Saturday night, extending its winning streak to four matches- including wins over three ranked teams.
The Nittany Lions limited their hitting errors in a strong offensive performance. The team hit .330 with only 11 errors.
The Lions' attack was an all-around effort, as four players had at least eight kills with no player having more than 11. Of those players, sophomore Ariel Scott led the team with 11 kills on 27 attacks with only two errors.
However, Penn State's serve wasn't quite as consistent as its attack. The Lions had 10 service errors, but did manage to score six service aces.
Freshman Dominique Gonzalez's serve emerged as a disruptive threat during the match as well. Gonzalez didn't have any aces - or errors - but forced at least four free balls, including three in a row at one point in the second set. Two of those free balls went for overpass kills for the Lions.
Defensively, sophomore libero Ali Longo played a solid match, tallying 12 digs.
