OH: Outside hitter, generally attacks from left front MH: Middle hitter, generally attacks from middle front Opp.: Opposite or right side hitter, generally attacks from the right front DS: Defensive Specialist, a substitution in the backrow for serving, passing and defensive purposes

Players rotate in a clockwise direction and serve when they are in the right back position. The libero (wearing a different color jersey) may take the place of any of the three backrow players and does not count as a team substitution.

S: Setter, generally handles the second contact to distribute the ball to the hitters, may only attack and block when in the front row L: Libero, a backrow player concentrated on passing and defense; may serve; may not attack the ball above the height of the net; wears a different colored jersey to help distinguish “on-the-fly” entry into the game.

New Terminology and Scoring:

There were a few new rule changes in 2008. The NCAA coaches have decided to change the terminology “game” to “set” - so now matches consist of the best three-of-five sets. Also, instead of rally scoring to 30 points in the first four sets, sets will be played to 25. The fifth set will still be rally scoring to 15 points. Both changes were made to mirror international volleyball. 8

In 2008, the Nittany Lions became the sixth team to win back-to-back national championships. e big question heading into 2009 was if Penn State could make it three in a row. Any doubt was soon put to rest as Penn State became the first team to win three straight NCAA National titles with a 3-2 comefrom-behind victory against Texas in the 2009 NCAA Championship. Volleyball fans may wonder what is in store for the Nittany Lions in 2010. ey may be quick to point out the loss of All-American talents in Alisha Glass and Megan Hodge and the youth of this year’s squad. ey may even be asking the question, “Can this team do it one more time?” However, head coach Russ Rose isn’t worrying about another national title or even a Big Ten Championship. His focus, as it has always been, is on developing a whole new team with the same rich tradition and high goals as the teams in years past. Youth aside, Rose will look to his experienced players, the same ones who have played key roles in the three championships, to set an example for the group of talented newcomers who will join them on the court this season. Rose, who enters his 32nd season at the helm of the Penn State program, knows this year will be different. He knows it will be tough on everyone from the players to the staff. His time, effort and experience give him an advantage though. Rose knows what to expect and how hard everyone will have to work. Most importantly, he is realistic. “e last two or three years, I thought on paper that we had a team that could legitimately compete for a national championship,” said Rose. “I wouldn’t say that about this team because it’s unfair. What this team can do is improve throughout the season. I expect us to hit a lot of bumpy roads along the way. e conference is tough and our schedule presents us with some great challenges. Our goal in the end will be to be the best team we can be, to get better through the season, to play hard and play together. We’ll see where we end up.” Setter Who’s Back? Marika Racibarskas (Chatham, N.J.) and Kristin Carpenter (Mechanicsville, Va.) are back for their second season as Nittany Lions. e pair possesses experience setting from their high school and club careers, but saw action in their freshman season as serving and defensive specialists. While coach Rose feels Carpenter is the best athlete of the group and Marika is one of the hardest workers on the team, he may be looking at a newcomer to take over for three-time AllAmerican Glass. Who’s New? Freshman Mikinzie Moydell (Parker Colo.) is leading the pack as the potential starting setter according to Rose. “Mikinzie has a good handle on the game and she interacts well with others. e physical nature of college volleyball is something she won’t understand until she’s in the gym and has balls being hit at her at a certain velocity, big outside Blair hitters hitting over her and small outside hitters Brown being crafty with her. It’ll be a far cry from what we’ve done the last couple of years, but that’s not going to stop us from going to practice every day and trying to find a way to be competitive both in the conference and in the national picture.” Moydell was named an AAU, AVCA Under Armour and ESPN RISE All-American as a three-year varsity letterwinner at Chaparral High School. She guided her team to the 2006 and 2009 District Championship, as well as the 2009 Regional title. A First Team All-Colorado nominee, Moydell was also named to the Volleyball Magazine Fab 50. Outside Hitter Who’s Back? Junior Katie Kabbes (Raleigh, N.C.) is one of two returning outside hitters for Rose, but with sophomore Darcy Dorton (Muncie, Ind.) a question mark for the first part of the season, Kabbes will be the lone returner with any collegiate match experience. Kabbes will be looking to make an impact from the

2010 Season Outlook start at one of the two open outside positions. Her predecessors were AllAmericans and Rose feels Kabbes is ready to step up. “Katie certainly has made great strides over the last two years. I hope this will be a breakout season for her.” Kabbes appeared in 39 matches in her first two seasons as a Nittany Lion. She has totaled 68 kills and 24 blocks, while also posting 21 digs. On the right side, Coach Rose can count on the leadership and experience of senior captain Blair Brown (Purcellville, Va.). A two-time All-American, it will be necessary for Brown to lead the talented crop of newcomers. “is is Blair and Ari’s (Arielle Wilson) team this year and I trust they’ll do their best,” said Rose. “We might have to move Blair to the outside and have someone else play right if our hitting doesn’t come along. At this point, I don’t know. But Blair is a two-time All-American and I’m confident she’ll play like one.” A unanimous First Team All-Big Ten selection, Brown finished second on the team in 2009 with 347 kills for an average of 2.97 kills per set. She was a strong blocker for Rose, tallying 107 blocks for the season, while also making in impact in the back row and as a server. Who’s New? Rose has two newcomers hoping to find a starting spot on the outside, including Maddie Martin (Tampa, Fla.) and Deja McClendon (Louisville, Ky.). Two other options Rose might look at are Carpenter and freshman Ali Longo (Littleton, Colo.), a defensive specialist. “Deja is a great offensive player who plays high at the net, while Maddie is more of an all-around threat. Kristin and Ali are both small, but were successful at the junior and high school levels as passer/hitters. Although they’re small, they play hard and might find themselves in the mix as well.” Martin, who is 6-2, was a four-year varsity letterwinner at H.B. Plant High School where she guided her team to four straight state championships. She was a two-year member of the Katie USA A1 Select Team and Kabbes was named the Florida Gatorade Player of the Year. Martin was a twotime PrepVolleyball All-American, as well as an AAU, ESPN RISE and AVCA Under Armour AllAmerican. McClendon comes to Penn State after being selected Miss Kentucky Volleyball and the Kentucky Gatorade Player of the Year. A four-time AAU All-American, McClendon was a member of the 2009 JVDA National Champions and won a gold medal at the USAV High Performance Championships. Longo played for the Juggernaut Volleyball Club and was a four-year letterwinner and three-year captain at Chatfield High.

Arielle Wilson

She was a three-time First Team All-Conference honoree and was a twotime Region All-Star selection. Middle Hitter Who’s Back? Rose welcomes back AVCA First Team All-American Arielle Wilson (Broadview, Ill.) and senior Fatima Balza (Merida, Venezuela) at middle. “Ari led the nation in hitting last year, but it was with the aid of a great passing team and a terrific setter,” said Rose. “She will have to adjust this year with the change in our level of passing and setting and will have to make good swings every time. Ari will be our leader in the middle. “Fatima did a terrific job last year with what we asked her to do. She was not one of our primary offensive options, but was very good when offered the opportunity. Overall, Fatima made great contributions to the team and I believe she’ll continue to be a hard worker and a good blocker.” Wilson was named to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team and earned First Team All-Big Ten status. She led the nation with a recordbreaking .540 hitting percentage and her career hitting percentage of .489 tops the Nittany Lion career charts. She started all 38 matches in 2009 and finished third on the team with 337 kills and led the team with 186 blocks, averaging 1.52 blocks per set. In her first year at Penn State, Balza played in all 38 matches, starting in all but one. She finished second on the team with 171 total blocks, averaging 1.47 blocks per set to rank 10th in the nation. Balza has three or more blocks in 32 matches and posted a career-best 12 against Ohio State. Who’s New? Joining Wilson and Balza in the middle are freshmen Erica Denney (Aurora, Colo.), Ariel Scott (Ridgewood, N.J.) and Katie Slay (Raleigh, N.C.). While Rose will see the newcomers play for the first time during preseason, he’s confident they will adapt well to the collegiate game and add some depth at the position. “Erica and Mikinzie played well together in club so that experience may provide some intangibles,” said Rose. “Ariel is a physical player who I think we’ll look at to play this year at either middle or outside. She has a great frame, good strength and is very competitive. Katie may be the best incoming blocker we’ve ever had in the program. She may have to work hard to earn time on the court from an offensive standpoint, but she’s going to be able to block a lot of balls.”

Alyssa D’Errico Denney was a four-year letterwinner at Grandview High School where she led her team to the 2007 State Championship and a third place finish in 2009. e three-time All-State honoree was named an AVCA/Under Armour All-American and a PrepVolleyball.com Senior Ace. Denney picked up international experience with the Youth National Team aiding them in winning a gold medal at the 2008 NORCECA Championships, as well as competing in the 2009 World Championships in ailand. e New Jersey Gatorade Player of the Year, Scott was also an AVCA/Under Armour All-America. She was named to the USA A2 High Performance Team and joined Denney as a Prepvolleyball.com Senior Ace. At Immaculate Heart Academy, Scott guided her team to four straight league championship and three straight state championships.

Who’s New? In addition to the experienced upperclassmen, Rose will have additional options in the back row thanks to a host of newcomers. Freshmen Maggie Harding (State College, Pa.), Ali Longo (Littleton, Colo.) and Krosby Pabst (Long Beach, Calif.) will all compete for time on the court this season. “Krosby has a great volleyball IQ and always seems to be in the right place at the right time,” said Rose. “Ali has a strong jump serve and while Maggie may not be as strong as some of the other players, she works hard and has the potential to make some great contributions to this team.” Harding, a four-year letterwinner and team captain at local State College Area High School, was an All-State selection her senior season and earned spots on the PVA Invitational, Rally in the Valley Invitational, Susquehannock Invitational and the Saint Francis Invitational All-Tournament Teams. Longo, the third newcomer to the team this year from Colorado, was also a four-year varsity letterwinner in high school. A three-time First Team All-Conference honoree, Longo was named Second Team All-State and Jeffco League MVP in her senior season. She played for the Juggernaut Volleyball Club and was a two-time Region All-Star selection. Pabst guided her high school team to two straight Moore League Varsity Volleyball Championships in Long Beach, Calif. A two-time All-Moore League Second Team honoree, Pabst earned a gold medal in volleyball at the Junior Olympics. She also lettered in soccer where she also earned All-Moore League Second Team accolades twice.

Cathy Quilico

Defensive Specialist/Libero Who’s Back? Rose most assuredly can count on the presence of seniors Alyssa D’Errico (Byron, N.Y.), Cathy Quilico (ousand Oaks, Calif.) and Jessica Ullrich (Winfield, Ill.) in the back row in 2010. e trio is joined by returning junior Megan Shifflett (Falls Church, Va.), as well as Carpenter. “We’re going to depend a lot on our seniors, Cathy, Alyssa and Jess. I think we’ll be stronger in the back row. While I don’t think you can win a lot of matches being stronger in the back, I think you can steal a couple of matches thanks to the impact of the back row players. It will prove to be a competitive position for us this year and the expectations of those individuals playing will be very high.” D’Errico was the starting libero last season playing in all 38 matches. She led the team in digs with 433, averaging 3.55 digs per set, and aces with 62. Quilico was a consistent presence at defensive specialist for Rose appearing in all 38 matches, starting in 18. While the shortest member of the team at 5-1, she is one of the quickest and made some big plays in the NCAA Finals. Ullrich played in 29 matches last season as a serving and defensive specialist. Coach Rose knows he can count on Ullrich’s serve, as well as Carpenter’s. He also knows he can count on the experience and volleyball IQ of Shifflett, who played during the National Championship, as well as 14 PENN STATE 2010-2011 WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

Head Coach Russ Rose really should be to their development. e challenge is in getting players who want to become good and are willing to work instead of attending a school because the team is good.” Instead, Rose addresses each new team and season on its own terms and his confidence lies in the ability and work ethic of his current players and coaching staff. “I’m not much of a believer in predicting a team’s level of success,” Rose said. “I can only state that we’re going to do our best. If we’re good enough to win matches then we’re going to win matches, but if we lose it’s never going to be because we didn’t prepare and work hard and it’s not going to be because we rested on our program’s previous laurels.” For a good example of this statement, look no further than the 1999 season. Following two consecutive campaigns which saw the Lions reach the title match of the NCAA Tournament only to fall in defeat, the team returned to the NCAA Tourney finale in 1999 and captured the first National Championship in the program’s history with a 3-0 sweep over top-ranked Stanford. e 1999 season also saw Rose lead Penn State to its second-consecutive 20-0 record in Big Ten play (and fourth straight conference title), becoming the first team in conference history to pull off the feat. In addition, the 1999 Nittany Lions extended their NCAA record home-match winning streak to 80 straight (extended to 87 in 2000), eclipsing the previous standard of 58 set by Florida from 1990-94. e Lions streak was finally put to a halt at 87 matches with a loss versus Minnesota on Sept. 29, 2000. Penn State had last dropped a match at Rec Hall on Nov. 24, 1994, when they suffered a 3-2 setback to Illinois, a span of over five seasons. After posting a runner-up finish in 1997, the Lions made it back to the NCAA Championship match in 1998. e team cruised through the regular season with a 30-0 mark, with 28 of those coming in three games. Penn State also became only the second school to close out the Big Ten schedule with a perfect 20-0 mark. After winning its fifth Big Ten title, Penn State hosted the NCAA First and

However, perhaps nowhere has Rose’s infusion of confidence been more evident than in the two other years when he led an inexperienced team with one starting senior and a rookie setter deep into the postseason. In 1996, the Lions started out 15-0, before finishing the regular season with a 29-2 mark and a share of the Big Ten title, Rose’s third in six seasons in the conference. e squad that took the court in the NCAA tournament was comprised of one senior, one junior, one sophomore and three freshmen. at talented group came two points from knocking off Nebraska at home, in a match to go to the national semifinal. Penn State finished the campaign with a 31-3 record and a final ranking of No. 5. Half of those starters, Bonnie Bremner, Angie Kammer and Terri Zemaitis, earned All-America honors, while Bremner became Penn State’s first Big Ten Freshman of the Year for her play at setter. e 1995 squad posted a 27-8 record and a No. 8 final national ranking. Rose’s ability to convey a belief in his players and to instill an uncompromising work ethic led to the Nittany Lions’ sixth straight appearance in the NCAA Regionals and a third-place finish in the Big Ten. Along the way he guided Penn State’s third Big Ten Player of the Year in just five seasons in the conference as sophomore Zemaitis captured the award. “I want the players to have a good experience — I want them to enjoy the many opportunities available at Penn State, but clearly I want them to know that they’ve come to a competitive, disciplined program and we’re going to work hard,” Rose said. “And without question have some fun along the way.

“I have been coaching here for a long time, but I don’t want to take the major responsibility for the program’s success because I know one thing for sure, and that is you can’t get where we are today without the total support of the administration. You need to have good leadership and financial support to compete with the nation’s elite.”– Russ Rose

“We’re not fanatics, and I want the players to be happy. It goes without saying that it is easier to be happy when you’re winning than when you’re losing.”

Head Coach Russ Rose the team strung together four victories and earned the right to play for the National Championship against Long Beach State. Rose puts the success in proper perspective. “ere are a large number of excellent coaches at great schools that have yet to break into the national semifinals. ere are a small number of teams that have made it there, and fewer yet that have reached the final match. I won’t look at it (reaching the final match) other than it was a great ride that the players took us on and it reinforced that there’s validity to how I’ve run the program here at Penn State. “e players need to understand what it takes to be successful and they need to have fun. We showed that winning can be fun and that it isn’t necessary to change in a stressful environment. Every team starts with the same dream but few programs can really talk about competing for a chance to win a National Championship.” Rose’s formula for success was 1999, 2007, 2008 & 2009 recognized by the media and his coaching peers when he garnered NCAA National Champions the triple-crown of coaching accolades in 1993 as he did in No. 1 1990.

The Numbers Say It All...

“So, the staff will have to provide them with the necessary direction and opportunities and hope they remain healthy enough to see if we can make a run at winning as many matches as possible.” at is something that has never been a problem for the coach. In his 31 seasons at Penn State, Rose’s record is 1,001-159, an .863 winning percentage that places him first nationally among active coaches. His squads have secured 30 or more wins in a season 22 times and 36 or more victories seven times. In 1994, Rose coached the Nittany Lions to a second straight NCAA national semifinal appearance and picked up his 500th career win early in the season. Placing second in the Big Ten with a 17-3 conference mark, the Nittany Lions posted a 31-4 ledger on the year and ended the regular-season ranked No. 5, at the time their highest regular-season finish ever. Season highlights included beating national runner-up and perennial powerhouse UCLA at the Volleyball Monthly Invitational and stunning No. 1-ranked and undefeated Nebraska in Lincoln in front of a full house at the NCAA Mideast Regional final to advance to their second straight national semifinal.

Rose’s athletes have earned 50 First Team All-Big Ten honors in 19 years and have excelled off the court as well, earning 127 Academic All-Big Ten accolades.

Rose added to an already crowded trophy case by picking up the NCAA Mideast Region Coach of the Year honor for the fourth time. Still, Rose has had more to do with Penn State’s success on the court than he’s willing to admit. “I think that it’s a reflection of my years of service and the caliber and commitment of players and staff we’ve attracted in the past,” Rose said. “When you retire from coaching, people will look and see the success you had, but I’d like to be evaluated on the success of my players, their feel for their experience at Penn State and the growth that the program has had from the time I arrived here. We had three in-state scholarships and hand-me-down basketball jerseys when I arrived at Penn State. I think that’s more of a reflection of what I was hoping to accomplish when I entered the profession.” Yet, the on-the-court accomplishments do speak volumes. In 1993, another dream season, the Nittany Lions surged into their third year of Big Ten play and won their second consecutive conference title.

He is a great teacher and is well-respected around the nation.” Many athletes have thrived under Rose’s tutelage as witnessed by the 30 different All-Americans (earning 65 selections in all) and 26 first team All-Big Ten players (earning 59 selections in all) he has coached. In 1999, Lauren Cacciamani was named Big Ten Player of the Year, the Big Ten Female Athlete of the Year and the Honda Award winner.

Rome, Iceman, Guokas, Bortner, Sexton, Tabitha Eshleman and Emily Gerega were all recognized for their scholastic and athletic achievements.

Head Coach Russ Rose Penn State finished sixth in the final 1990 Tachikara Coaches Poll, the program’s highest final ranking ever at the time and the AVCA and Volleyball Monthly named three Nittany Lions —Jo Ann Elwell, Michelle Jaworski and Noelle Zientara — All-Americans. An 11-time nominee for National Coach of the Year, Rose garnered the Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year award in 1984, ‘85, ‘87, ‘88, ‘89 and ‘90. roughout his career, Rose has been called upon to share his expertise with the coaches and players who represent the United States in international competition. In 1989, he was an assistant coach with the United States men’s national team for an exhibition series with Canada and the Soviet Union. His work on the international scene was to have continued in July of that year, but personal commitments and time constraints prevented him from accepting the position as head coach of the U.S. women’s team to the Maccabiah Games. In 1990, Rose worked with members of the men’s national and developmental teams during training camp in San Diego. In 1993, he assisted in the U.S. men’s matches with Canada and the women’s team against China. He also assisted with the U.S. men as they prepared for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. In the summer of 2002, Rose assisted the U.S. men’s team on a 13-day tour of Italy where the athletes competed against the world’s top teams, including Brazil, Italy, Yugoslavia, Russia and Holland. He also served as team manager for the U.S. men’s team at the Four Nations Tournament in Leipzig, Germany, in May of 2008 and was an honorary chair for the 2010 STATE games. An instructor in the USVBA coaches certification program, Rose has previously served as a national referee and evaluator and state director for volleyball for the Special Olympics. In 2005, USA Volleyball named Rose one of their All-Time Great Coaches, making him the first Big Ten coach to ever receive the honor and putting him in the company of the best volleyball coaches in history, including previous Olympic coaches as well as many of their peers. Rose was a member of the NCAA Division I Volleyball Committee for six years and the NCAA representative to the United States Volleyball Association Rules Committee. Rose served as head coach of the U.S. men’s team, which won the bronze medal at the 1985 Maccabiah Games, and the U.S. women’s silver medal

An active clinician, Rose also coached professional men’s volleyball in the Superior League in Puerto Rico in 1976 and has continued to do clinics on the island as well as in the United States. Players are not the only ones to benefit from Rose’s tutelage. More than 25 individuals within the college coaching fraternity have gained instruction from Rose. A 1975 graduate of George Williams College, Rose was a member of the school’s team that won the 1974 National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics national championship. He was the captain of the 1975 team that finished third in NAIA competition. After graduation, Rose remained at George Williams for two years as a part-time coach, helping the women’s team win two state titles and place sixth in national competition. He also assisted the men’s team that won the national championship in 1977. In 1978, he completed his master’s degree at Nebraska, where he was the defensive coach for the Cornhusker women. While writing his thesis on volleyball statistics, he led the second team to a two-year varsity mark of 525.

The Rose Coaching Philosophy Russ Rose has taken Penn State from the regionally competitive level to that of an NCAA power since he took over the Penn State women’s volleyball program in 1979. e development has been complete and successful, because of excellent talent and an equally sound method. Following is “e Rose Coaching Philosophy:”

Coach’s role “I believe the coach has numerous roles that require constant review and attention. First, and foremost, is the recruitment of quality student-athletes. With effective coaching, student-athletes have always been the key to a team's success.” “Secondly, we as a staff have to relate to the players what we feel is important for their growth and success. All the knowledge in the world will prove to be useless if we can't prepare our team for competition. We’ve shown this to be one of our strengths. I have great confidence that Dennis, Kaleena, having played for me, and Adam understand me and the program. I know they will do whatever it takes to help the players improve and pursue their dreams.” “ird, we have to prepare the team, physically, tactically and mentally. e physical preparation is easy, as the entire Penn State environment encourages the pursuit of excellence as shown by our years of high finishes in the Director’s Cup results. e fact that five of our fall sports teams have won Big Ten titles more than reinforces that school of thought. e mental aspect of our players' development is one of the areas that I feel has separated us from our competition. We are committed as a group to reaching the highest levels possible - year in and year out. e team understands the need to be accountable, and I’m not hesitant to get their focus headed in the right direction.” “Certainly our time in the Big Ten has demonstrated to us the importance of making sure that the players are aware of what is going to be expected of them in a conference as strong as the Big Ten. It’s been the strongest conference in the country as determined by the RPI and has led the nation in attendance for a number of years.” “Outside the Big Ten, we commit to play a competitive non-conference schedule. We continually strive to meet teams during the regular-season that have advanced in the national championship playoffs. It is a goal of mine for Penn State to always be in the top five in strength of schedule.” “I contend that the best way to see where our team is and where we aspire to be, is to play the nation’s best teams. Our administration has allowed us to compete annually for the national championship. Universities enable teams to compete for the national championship. I have been blessed to have an administration that possessed the vision to support our program and I feel we have been able to deliver. It starts at the top with a University President and Athletic Director and staff who guide and assist the program.” “I think our role here is to attract the type of player who wants to be at Penn State, understands what we are about and knows what it will take to fit into our program. I refuse to be in the position where we are going to be saying one thing to get a player interested in Penn State and then change our story once the athlete arrives on campus. I am interested in players who are willing to be up front, committed and passionate in what they see in their own development and what we can do to help them succeed.” “In turn, players must be willing to commit to the process and accept the culture of our program. ey must work to be the best they can be every day, at practice and in matches. When those things happen, the results speak for themselves. It is a collaborative effort. Every team is different and has its own methods and paths to follow with the ultimate goal of being successful.” “Over the years I have been contacted by numerous schools as well as the U.S. National Team and foreign professional teams regarding recent coaching positions, however I feel that the support I receive from the administration at Penn State is perfect for me, and I have no interest in coaching anywhere but Penn State.”

22 PENN STATE 2010-2011 WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

Team Play “Team play really deals with volleyball being the ultimate team sport. e last few years, we’ve not only had outstanding talent but we’ve had a great team spirit. Talent can get you only so far. If players aren’t working together and trying to achieve great things, sacrificing and willing to embrace the needs of the team, then the team isn’t going to shine. I can’t guarantee recruits that we’re going to win a conference championship or play for a national championship, albeit our goals should be along those lines. I guarantee them they’re going to get better, be treated fairly and will have an opportunity to play. “e team that is willing to emphasize the pursuit of excellence at its own personal expense is the team that most often succeeds. Our success over the years, where we have won numerous conference titles and advanced to the national semifinal and championship matches, continues to reinforce these beliefs. e four National Championships are clearly the icing on the cake. A National Championship does not validate a coach, a player or their program. It highlights the efforts of many and allows the community to celebrate the actions of the team. Our goal is to remain at that level and even if we fall short, we know that we are in the game. e pursuit is the challenge and getting to the final match is the reward.”

Fundamentals “Fundamentals and the player’s development of them are the most important aspect of the game. e game is played by players who have to be able to execute the basic skills of the game. We try to recruit student-athletes who are great volleyball players but the game always comes down to the execution of the core fundamentals. I will not sacrifice the time necessary to develop a strong foundation. is is where a team's discipline and confidence is first introduced and developed. Our commitment to each team is for every one of our players to be challenged to become the best they can be every day. I know our players are constantly improving their game here. I can’t guarantee victories but I can guarantee a player will improve at Penn State, and that is evidenced by the number of athletes who have received individual awards or chosen to further their careers with the national team or receive the opportunity to play professionally.” Team Defense “Team defense is always an area we pride ourselves on and has always been one of the staples of our program. e pursuit of the ball in a game can only occur through preparation and repetition. I believe that everyone in the program has to rally around certain principles. At Penn State, we play hard, controlled defense, which means every player pursues every ball or they are taken out. I believe if you train hard, then the game itself begins to appear easy. If a player starts making decisions on what ball they think they can get and what they think is somebody else’s ball, that’s when we try to make some adjustments and get someone else involved in the play. Our defensive philosophy is to keep every ball in play — every day of each season in practice as well as games. I believe we have shown this works over the long haul as well.

ter by emphasizing the former. I feel our defense in 2009’s title match was the key to our win.”

Student-Athlete “e term student-athlete is a very valid one here at Penn State and in the Big Ten. We recruit not only quality athletes, but quality students as well. ere is no question in my mind that the well-rounded individual will be better prepared to deal with the numerous challenges faced in life. e programs available at Penn State are geared for success. e opportunity to pursue your potential, both academically and athletically, is in place and working well at Penn State. e student support services at Penn State and the job Jim Weaver does with our team is outstanding. It is a reflection of the entire athletic department’s commitment to provide the necessary services for the student-athletes to pursue and achieve their dreams.” “I expect a commitment both to academics and athletics. I take great pride in the fact that every young woman who has entered our program and completed her playing eligibility has received her degree. Rankings of the 29 athletic programs on campus reveal that the women's volleyball team annually posts one of the highest cumulative grade-point averages. With proper emphasis on the importance of maintaining high academic standards, I know we will achieve continual success. At Penn State, we have had the most members of the Academic All-Big Ten team as a sport and an institution since joining the conference, and we take great pride in always have two or three academic all-Americans each year. at speaks volumes about our student-athletes as well as our academic advising staff.”

The Big Ten Conference “e Big Ten, in my opinion, continues to be one of the strongest conferences in the country in both fan support and performance. It is a conference that is totally committed to the pursuit of excellence. e opportunity to play volleyball in the Big Ten truly enhances our program. e excitement generated by the athletes and fans at matches is great for the sport. It continues to be a great environment in which to compete. e conference has been ranked No. 1 in the volleyball RPI ratings since 1998 and has been a national leader in attendance the past three years. e addition of Nebraska in 2011 will certainly enhance it even more.”

Penn State University “Penn State as a school has been very fortunate and good for women’s volleyball. I don’t think there is another school in the country that has the support of everyone from the president of the university to the athletic director to the residents of State College. Our players really reap the benefits of being at Penn State. e university president routinely drops by practices and uses the players in university functions to help increase the visibility of the program and university. I am extremely optimistic on the future of Penn State women’s volleyball and there is no place in the coun-

Recruiting “Recruiting is the life blood of a program and a team. It is our goal to encourage quality student athletes to visit Penn State with their parents to get a realistic view of what is really entailed with what we refer to as the ‘Penn State Experience.’ e campus, the environment and face of State College truly separates us from many of the other schools in the country as we exemplify the meaning of a ‘college town.’ e chemistry that exists between the team members is what has kept us competitive and the energy that exists between the university and the town of State College keeps the juices flowing. We want players that want to make a commitment to be the best that they can be. We also want players to be aware of the fact that I am looking for a level of accountability from them as well. I’m not looking for a situation where I’m going to spend 24 hours a day, seven days a week trying to monitor their lifestyles or get involved in preventing them from having a good time. I believe the college experience at this time in their lives is the greatest opportunity to have fun and explore. I think you live hard and play hard and at Penn State, the students have a great opportunity to have fun in multiple areas.”

Staff “I feel great about our staff. We are fortunate to have Dennis (Hohenshelt) and Kaleena Davidson. e position of Director of Volleyball Operations has also demonstrated the university’s commitment to women’s volleyball and I feel great about the addition of Adam Hughes. His time in the Big Ten has allowed him to hit the ground running and his experience at Penn State is a great advantage. Some people would think that having people who are from their alma mater would be a negative but I see it as a positive. It’s a positive thing to have people with experience involved because they know in this program, they are going to be encouraged to have an opinion and their opinions are going to be heard. I respect what my former players have to say and the players can turn to them and get good feedback and not be dependent on having to interact with me all of the time. e addition of Dennis from the men’s side of the game brings a wealth of knowledge to our program and I know the players reap the benefits of interacting with him in the gym. An additional benefit that is important in our philosophy is that we try and look at the strengths of the players and how best to get them to contribute as well as continue to meet their goals. We think it’s a tremendous bonus. We’re one of five schools in the country who have had a men’s and a women’s team that have won a national championship and the only school outside of California and Hawaii that can make that claim and I think it’s terrific that volleyball is on the map here year round. e interaction between the men’s and women’s programs here is exceptional. Both schools winning the National Title during the same academic year allows the sport to be valued here by our many fans and the great student support.” Booster Club “Our Booster Club has been outstanding with everything we’ve asked them to be involved in. ey funded our three foreign trips, they pay for our banquet and they support us at home and on the road. ey also provide a welcoming environment for the players away from home where they can go for dinner and can interact with people who are supportive of the program.e Boosters are incredibly welcoming. I always get comments from parents of recruits about how welcoming everyone is. I think that’s a part of Penn State and State College and it’s been a big part of our program.”

Assistant Coach Dennis Hohenshelt

Dennis

Hohenshelt Fifth Year at Penn State

Alma Mater: Juniata, 1993

Dennis Hohenshelt begins his fifth season with the Penn State women’s volleyball program after spending 10 seasons as the Nittany Lion men’s volleyball assistant coach. Among other duties, Hohenshelt is involved in match preparation, player development and recruiting. “Dennis continues to develop in the women’s game,” said Rose. “I have great confidence in him in every aspect of the game. Most importantly, he’s filling in areas that I don’t have to focus on. I’m confident in his decisionmaking and trust him in the things we need to do to be successful. He comes from a different experience after 10 years with our men’s team. He developed many great players who came in as raw talents. He has worked with our players particularly with their net skills and in blocking, making great contributions in those areas.” Under Hohenshelt’s tutelage, current middle hitter Arielle Wilson led tha nation in 2009 with a record-setting .540 hitting percentage and averaged 2.76 kills per set. Wilson also ranked fourth in the nation with 1.52 blocks per set. As a freshman, Wilson was named the 2007 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and the University Park NCAA Regional Championship Most Outstanding Player. As a freshman, she attacked at a .446 clip while averaging 2.39 kills per game, and in Big Ten-only matches, Wilson became just the second freshman ever to lead the conference in blocks, averaging 1.78 blocks per game. Hohenshelt aided the Penn State men’s team in reaching the 2006 national championship match for the first time in 11 seasons, defeating then-No. 1 UC Irvine in five games in the national semifinal contest at Rec Hall. During his tenure with the men’s team, Penn State accumulated an overall record of 237-82 (.743), including a 110-4 (.965) mark in the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) and nine EIVA titles and National Collegiate Championship appearances. He was also instrumental in recruiting the core of men’s volleyball players who captured the 2008

24 PENN STATE 2010-2011 WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

NCAA National Championship. Boasting a considerable amount of experience with USA Volleyball, Hohenshelt was a coaching assistant with the 2004 USA Boy’s Youth National Team that won the NORCECA Zone gold medal. He was also the assistant coach for the USA Boy’s Junior National Team during the summer of 2002 in Brazil and helped lead the U.S. Junior National Team to a thirdplace finish at the NORCECA Championships. He assisted with the U.S. Boy’s Youth National Team in the summer of 1997 and scouted for the U.S. Men’s National Team at the 1997 World Cup. He also aided at the tryouts for the U.S. Men’s National and Junior National teams. A native of Harrisburg, Pa., and a 1993 graduate of Juniata College, Hohenshelt led the Eagles to consecutive EIVA Division III titles in 1992 and 1993, earning Most Valuable Player accolades his senior year. After receiving his bachelor of science degree in secondary education and social studies, Hohenshelt served two years as an assistant coach for the Juniata men’s program from 1994-95. He was promoted to head coach in 1996 and led the Eagles to an 18-8 record and a second place finish in the EIVA Division III Tournament. Hohenshelt also was assistant coach at Huntingdon (Pa.) High School from 1993-1995. He is married to the former Tara Rowlyk, who is an assistant coach for the Penn State women’s lacrosse team. e couple has one son, Jacob, who was born in July of 2005, and one daughter, Reece, who was born in 2010.

Assistant Coach Kaleena Davidson

Kaleena

Davidson

Second Year at Penn State Alma Mater: Penn State, 2006

Former Penn State women's volleyball Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year Kaleena Davidson enters her second season with the three-time defending national champion Nittany Lions. Davidson was the starting libero for the Nittany Lions from 2002-05 and still stands as the all-time career digs leader (1,957) as well as holding the top three single-season dig marks. She returned to Penn State for the 2009 season after spending two years as an assistant coach at the College of Charleston under head coach Jason Kepner, a former Nittany Lion men's volleyball player. “Kaleena has hit the ground running,” said Rose. “She’s familiar with Penn State and has an awareness of how I like to run the program. She understands the expectations I have of both the staff and the players. I think she’ll continue to make those sort of contributions. e great advantage of hiring someone from Penn State is that I know they love Penn State and are committed to the program and the players. ey want to make sure the players have everything they need to be successfull both athletically and academically. She knows how I am and can be a buffer with young players when they need someone to help them handle the demands I place on my team.” A native of Mt. Lebanon, Pa., Davidson was a member of the College of Charleston staff whose teams captured two regular-season Southern Conference championships, also winning the tournament title in 2007 and advancing to the NCAA First Round. She coached six all-conference players and two Freshmen of the Year, also assisting in recruiting, player development, game management, team travel and budget along with the day to day management of the volleyball program. "I am both excited and honored to be back at Penn State in this new role," said Davidson "I have always loved PSU and I am looking forward

to contributing to the University and the program once again. It is a great opportunity for me to work with and learn from Coach Rose and (assistant coach) Dennis (Hohenshelt) and to help continue the great run of success that Penn State volleyball has had." A 2005 AVCA Honorable Mention All-American and two-time First Team All-Big Ten selection, Davidson helped her Penn State squads to a four-year record of 116-19 and was a member of three Big Ten Championship squads, finishing with a league record of 69-11 and starting the current streak of six consecutive conference championships. Along with her single-season and career digs records, she also owns the single-match records for three, four and five games, setting a school record with 44 digs in a match against Minnesota on Oct. 2, 2004. Davidson joins a team that returns four starters from last season's 38-0 National Champion team that set an NCAA record for consecutive games won at 111 and became the first team at any level of NCAA women's volleyball to close out the regular season without dropping an individual set. Davidson, formerly Walters, and her husband Cameron reside in Bellefonte, Pa.

Quoting Russ Rose “I thought Fatima hit the ground running last year and did a great job in a tough situation playing with new people and veteran, demanding teammates. I thought she did more than an admirable job. is year she’ll have to be more of an offensive player, continue her good blocking and seeing if she can make some contributions in other areas. She’s a mature and experienced player and we’ll have to depend on that more this year with the youth around her.” Balza’s Expectations “My goal for this year is to give everything I have. I want to be focused in every practice, give my best every day on and off the court, work hard at every practice and help my teammates.

Quoting Russ Rose “I look forward to seeing the competitive side of Katie this season and she has to take the step from being good in practice to games. She’s been here for two years and during those two years, the outside hitters in front of her were first team All-American selections. Katie is aware of what she needs to do and I thought she had a good spring. I hope the momentum will carry over. I know she wants to play. She cares about the team and needs to learn to handle the demands of he very challenging position of being a terminal hitter.”

1999 NCAA National Champions “Losing in the finals

two years in a row motivated me to

get it done. I knew I couldn’t get those

back and I lived with that every day.

Now I can live with something else.”

– Bonnie Bremner on winning the 1999 NCAA National Championship

“The fact that it eluded us after being so

close the last two seasons made it sweet to win. But I don’t think a National

Championship validates a program. We

run a good, clean program and that is what I am most proud of.”

– Head Coach Russ Rose on winning the 1999 National Championship

“There couldn’t be any better way to end a senior year. There couldn’t be a better way to come home to State College.”

1999 NCAA National Champions

THIRD TIME A CHARM AS LIONS CLAIM NCAA TITLE HONOLULU -- In just one hour and 20 minutes, the top-ranked Penn State women's volleyball team erased memories of five game losses in the previous two title matches by sweeping Stanford for the first NCAA volleyball national championship in school history. e Nittany Lions defeated the Cardinal 15-2, 1510, 15-7 in front of a sold-out crowd of 10,252 fans at the Stan Sheriff Center at the University of Hawaii. "I think we set the stage for the win in the first game when we had 10 blocks," said head coach Russ Rose. "We had a great game plan and the players played with passion and enthusiasm right out of the chute. I believe the players are the ones that placed themselves in a position to get into this situation and I thought they handled all the distractions that normally come in a match like this as well as they possible could."

“I think we had a great game plan and the players played with a lot of passion and enthusiasm right out of the chute.” – Head coach Russ Rose on

defeating Stanford for the NCAA Championship

It was a perfect ending for the three seniors who had started in the previous two title matches. Each of the trio played one of their best matches of the year, including senior Lauren Cacciamani who was named the Most Outstanding Player after pounding out a match-high 20 kills with eight blocks. Also the 1999 National Co-Player of the Year, she and the rest of the team weren't about to fall behind by two games again this year. "We did get an opportunity to watch a lot of film and we knew that we had to come out and jump on them," Cacciamani said. "We were going to try to go out there and dictate instead of having them show us what was going to go on. We were planning on going out strong and with a lot of fight." Seniors Bonnie Bremner and Carrie Schonveld were also named to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament team. Bremner dished out 37 assists with four kills of her own. She also hit .333 with six digs and a pair of blocks. Schonveld had nine kills to go with her team-high 10 digs. e outside hitter hit .368 on the night and also aided at the net with three blocks (1 BS, 2 BA). e Lions were banking on their previous championship experience and it finally paid off.

"We played well and at times we wanted to keep the ball in play and hope that they would make mistakes," Bremner said. "ey're a big team that's going to get a lot of kills, but we were also figuring they would make mistakes." e Penn State blockers created a wall that the Stanford hitters could not avoid. Fueled by Cacciamani's eight blocks, the Lions held the Cardinal to a season-low -.008 hitting percentage as 1999 Co-Player of the Year Kerri Walsh zeroed out (11k-11e-33ta). ey also held 1999 Freshman-of-the-Year Logan Tom to negative numbers (7k-10e-31ta, -.097) Redshirt-freshman Mishka Levy and sophomore Katie Schumacher each added five blocks--both with one solo and four assisted. Each of the six players that rotated to the front row recorded at least one block as Penn State ended the evening with 15 to Stanford's 10.5. "We blocked incredibly well and with patience," Rose said. "We blocked 10 balls and they had nine hitting errors in addition to that (in the first game), in my opinion they never got into a flow and I think some of their younger players weren't ready for that. We knew what we wanted to do and we recognized that a couple of players were going to be able to get their kills. We had a game plan that we felt comfortable about and believed would be successful." Schumacher also added nine kills with three each from Levy and sophomore Amanda Rome. e Lions only trailed during one part of the match. Down 3-1 in game two, the Lions rolled off three-consecutive points to resume the lead and never looked back the rest of the way. It was the first time this season the Cardinal had been swept.

"We didn't peak at the beginning of the season, obviously," Cacciamani said. "We lost our first match so we knew we wouldn't go undefeated. We did a good job playing as a team. We progressed and got better as the season wore on.

“We didn’t peak at the beginning of the season, obviously. We progressed and got better as the season wore on. The younger people got a lot better and the older people became better leaders and got it together as well. So it was an uphill progression leading towards the end.” – Senior Lauren Cacciamani on losing the first match of the year before closing out the season with 36 straight wins.

e younger people improved and the older people became better leaders and kept it together as well. So it was an uphill progression leading towards the end."

e Lions end the season with a 36-1 mark with the only loss coming in the season opener to Florida on Aug. 27. It was a matter off pulling things together to end the season on a high note.

The 1999 seniors led Penn State to its firstever NCAA Women’s Volleyball title (from left) Carrie Schonveld, Leilani Schlottfeldt, Bonnie Bremner, Kalna Miller and Lauren Cacciamani. (Schlottfeldt decided to return for her final year of eligibility in 2000.)

FINISHING ON TOP

The class of 1999 – Bonnie Bremner, Lauren Cacciamani, Kalna Miller and Carrie Schonveld – had been through it before, but their final year had a different, even storybook ending. After losing in the regionals finals as freshmen, these four followed up with a pair of NCAA Semifinal appearances that led to five-game losses in the title match. Those memories were all erased with a three-game sweep of Stanford for the first women’s volleyball title in school history. What the seniors were a part of is nothing short of incredible. They helped Penn State to an amazing 137-5 record with a share of two Big Ten championships (1996 & 1997) before winning it outright in 1998 and 1999. The quartet also compiled a 77-3 mark (.963) in Big Ten matches, including consecutive 200 seasons over the past two years. They made Penn State the first school in Big Ten history to win four consecutive crowns and never lost a match at home.

HOME SWEET HOME

Talk about a home-court advantage – the four seniors never even lost a match and dropped only nine games in University Park. The 1999 senior class took the court in Rec Hall 78 times in their four years and each time they left with a win – a large part of the reason Penn State sits at second place in the NCAA records for consecutive home wins at 87. What’s even more amazing is the manner in which Penn State has won at home. During the seniors’ last 62 matches in Rec Hall, only Wisconsin (twice) and Texas (twice) were able to take a game. But it gets better...in the 80 consecutive home wins the class was a part of, 72 of those were three-game sweeps and the Lions never had to play five games.

2007 NCAA National Champions

LIONS RALLY TO DEFEAT STANFORD, 3-2, CAPTURE SECOND NCAA NATIONAL TITLE

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 15, 2007 - The No. 1 Penn State women's volleyball team captured the program's second NCAA Championship, winning a dramatic five-game final, 3-2, against No. 4 Stanford in Arco Arena. The Nittany Lions won the thriller, 30-25, 3026, 23-20, 19-30, 15-8, posting their 26th consecutive victory since a five-game loss to the Cardinal exactly three months prior. Penn State finished the season with a superlative 34-2 record, bringing the championship trophy back to Happy Valley to join the program's 1999 crown. "We're awfully excited," stated Russ Rose, the 2007 AVCA National Coach of the Year and Hall of Fame inductee earlier in the week. "We're thrilled for our fans and everyone that cares about Penn State." "It's an amazing feeling," said junior outside hitter Nicole Fawcett (Zanesfield, Ohio). "This year's team was so determined. After the fourth game we were determined to get our focus back." After taking a 2-0 lead, Penn State saw the topseeded Stanford rally to tie the match, 2-2. The Cardinal took a 4-3 lead in the decisive Game 5, but the Nittany Lions scored seven consecutive points to take control at 10-4. Junior middle hitter Christa Harmotto (Aliquippa, Pa.) and sophomore setter Alisha Glass (Leland, Mich.) each had two kills during the critical
