Head Coach Mark Pavlik

Mark

PAVLIK 19th Year at Penn State Career Record: 437-126 ALMA MATER: PENN STATE, 1982

Having been involved in all aspects of the Penn State men’s volleyball program as a player, assistant coach and head coach, 2008 AVCA National Coach of the Year Mark Pavlik now enters his 19th year at the helm in Happy Valley. Capturing the 2008 NCAA National Championship and helping build the Nittany Lions into one of the premier men’s volleyball powers in the nation, Pavlik has compiled a career record of 414-120, winning more than 77 percent of his matches. Within the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA), Pavlik’s teams have been even more dominating, racking up 183 wins and only suffering five league losses in 17 years (.973). A 1982 graduate of Penn State and the 2007, 2008 and 2009 EIVA Coach of the Year, Pavlik has experienced Penn State from all perspectives. As a player, he was a setter under legendary coach Tom Tait. For five years prior to his promotion, Pavlik served as Coach Tom Peterson’s top assistant. During that time, the Nittany Lions compiled a 111-39 record and made four NCAA Tournament appearances, highlighted by the 1994 national title. Pavlik’s experience and expertise has not gone unnoticed or unrecognized by those in the volleyball community. “Mark has developed not only one of the best programs in the East, but one of the most outstanding programs in the nation,” said USA Volleyball CEO and former longtime USA Men’s Volleyball Head Coach Doug Beal. “His teams compete with class at the highest levels, year-in and year-out. Mark brings an unusual passion and thoughtfulness, along with a special rapport with his team every year. USA Volleyball is fortunate to have coaches like Mark coaching at the collegiate level, working with athletes and growing the sport.” Drawing from his experiences, Pavlik has developed a unique coaching philosophy that stresses hard work in practice, a relaxed approach to competition, and a determination to develop the well-rounded person and student-athlete. “I feel that the coach’s role is extremely critical in training and creating the environment in which the team can improve,” Pavlik said. “I think I am more concerned about practices than I am about matches. “I have the philosophy that the team is going to win or lose the match. I tend to be more demanding in practice where the work gets done. During the matches, I like to help the team use what they have been trained to use.” As Pavlik explained, lending an ear goes a long way in coaching. “I think the best coaches are the most observant,” Pavlik said. “They are good in convincing young people what it takes to succeed in life, not just on the court. “I do not think about coaching as being the boss. Rather, I am here to see how all the parts fit together. I am in the middle of this storm, and that is where the calm is supposed to be.” Pavlik has guided some of the nation’s greatest players during his tenure. In 1997, he coached Ivan Contreras to the AVCA Player of the Year honor and in 2008 Matt Anderson earned the same award, the only times an 6

Pavlik has coached 21 different players to 41 All-America awards, including two AVCA National Players of the Year. Eastern player has earned the prestigious honor. He has coached 21 different players (Ivan Contreras, Jason Kepner, Kevin Hourican, Ed Josefoski, Carlos Ortiz, José Quiñones, Zeljko Koljesar, Zach Slenker, Carlos Guerra, Ricky Mattei, Keith Kowal, Nate Meerstein, Matt Proper, Matt Anderson, Luke Murray, Max Holt, Max Lipsitz, Dennis Del Valle, Joe Sunder and Edgardo Goas) to 40 All-America awards. At least three of his players have earned first team All-East/All-EIVA accolades each season. Over the past 25 years, Pavlik has gained considerable experience coaching at the international, national, collegiate and high school levels. He was a member of the AVCA Board of Directors as well as chairman of the AVCA All-America committee. Pavlik was also named EIVA Coach of the Year from 1995-97 and served as the Head of Delegation for the defending Olympic Champion USA men’s volleyball team at the America’s Cup in Brazil in September, 2008. During the summer of 1995, Pavlik was a member of the coaching staff of the World University Games team that competed in Japan and finished eighth out of 30 teams. Former Nittany Lion captains Ed Josefoski and Kevin Hourican were team members. Pavlik coached the U.S. National Team at the NORCECA competition in Edmonton, Alberta, in the fall of 1995. The USA took home the silver, losing to Cuba in the final. Fourteen years ago, Pavlik was a member of the U.S. staff at the World University Games in Buffalo, N.Y. In the summer of 1994, he directed the East team to a silver medal at the U.S. Olympic Festival.

Pavlik again joined the World University Games staff in the summer of 2001 when he served as the U.S. Head of Delegation for the Games, which were held in Beijing, China. Pavlik and the U.S. team brought home the gold, the first-ever gold medal won by the men’s World University Games team, and the first men’s gold medal at any level since the 1988 Olympic Games gold. Current Lion assistant coach Colin McMillan was a player on that WUG team. A native of Derry, Pa., Pavlik served as an assistant to Derry High School coach Rich Schall from 1985-88. Derry won two state titles (1986, ‘88) and finished second in 1987 and third in 1985. As head coach of a 17-and-under junior boy’s team åΩin the York, Pa., area (1985-86), he led the team to a fourth-place finish at the national tournament. From 1986-88, Pavlik worked with the South-Central Pennsylvania Girls Volleyball Association. He also served as an assistant coach for the women’s teams at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Juniata College. Pavlik resides in Cornpropst Mills, Pa., with his wife, the former Heather Blough, and their son Jackson, who was born on Dec. 23, 2001. Heather, a three-time AVCA First Team All-American setter for Juniata College, is now head coach for the Eagles women’s volleyball team that won the Division III National championship in 2004 and 2006 under head coach Larry Bock.

He assisted the head coach in recruiting and overall player development and performance. In addition, Hosack handled scouting reports of opponents and practice plans. “Being a part of the Penn State family means more than just wearing Blue and White. It means that you are upholding the traditions and expectations the athletics and coaches that came before you have put in place. Although I did not receive my undergrad degree here, I am fully invested in all that is being a Penn State. I am, Penn State.” In addition to his responsibilities as part of the Penn State staff, Hosack is the director of the newly formed Penn State monthly volleyball clinics. Penn State women’s volleyball assistant coach Kaleena Davidson is the assistant director. From 2005-08, Hosack served as the associate head coach for both the men’s and women’s volleyball teams at Irvine Valley College. While at IVC, Hosack helped guide the Lasers men’s team to Orange Empire Conference titles in 2005 and 2007 and back-to-back state championships in 2007 and 2008. Hosack earned conference Co-Coach of the Year honors in 2007 and coached the women’s program to a conference crown that same year. Hosack also made a mark in the classroom at IVC, teaching Physical Education volleyball courses. Most recently during the summer of 2012, Hosack served as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men’s Junior National Team, which earned a gold medal at the NORCECA Championship and earned a bid to the 2013 World Championships. Prior to that Hosack traveled to Japan during the 2010 World Championships to assist the Women’s National Team with scouting opponents and served as an assistant coach with the U.S. Women’s National Team at the 2011 Pan Am Games where the team earned a silver medal. Between 2006-08, Hosack served as an assistant coach with the U.S. Men’s National team. His responsibilities included creating effective practice plans, handling team data and assisting with player development in preparation for the 2008 Olympic games. He helped guide the U.S. men to a gold medal in Beijing and the 2008 World League Championship. Hosack, who was a member of the UC Santa Cruz men’s volleyball program from 1995-97, returned to his alma mater to serve as the head coach for the men’s and women’s volleyball teams from 2000-04.

He also handled practice schedules and the training of fundamentals.

Assistant Coach Colin McMillan

Colin

McMillan Sixth Year at Penn State

ALMA MATER: OHIO STATE, 2000

Colin McMillan begins his sixth season at Penn State and will be involved in all aspects of the program, including opponent video breakdown, training the middle hitters and blocking defense. “We have some great competition right now in our gym with quality depth at every position, which is only going to make us better and better,” said McMillan. “I am excited to see where this team progresses to throughout the season. Our senior leadership should be a great asset through a tough schedule.” McMillan, a former standout at Ohio State from 1997-2000, has trained within the United States National pipeline and competed internationally for various clubs around the world. A 6-11 middle hitter, McMillan was a member of the 2001 United States team that captured the gold medal at the World University Games in Beijing, China, and also was a member of the U.S. World League team in 2001. From 2000 to 2005, he was the starting middle hitter for the Besiktas Volleyball Club in Istanbul, Turkey and also played for Castelo da Maia in Portugal, Marseille 13PVB in France and Los Rebeldes de Moca in Puerto Rico, winning the Superior League Championship in 2000. McMillan has also coached internationally with USAV. He assisted the Junior Men’s National Team in winning the NORCECA qualifying tournament in Gatineau, Canada in 2010. Most recently, McMillan was an

assistant coach for the U.S. Junior National team, which finished fourth in the 2011 World Junior Championships in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. “Colin brought his international experience to the PSU program and especially the middle blockers,” said head coach Mark Pavlik. “He will continue to work with our blocking and defense scheme development and will continue with his video and scouting responsibilities.” McMillan is a four-time All-MIVA selection and a four-year scholar athlete at Ohio State. Named to the 2000 National Collegiate Championship All-Tournament Team, McMillan led the Buckeyes to a national runnerup title that year and finished among the top five in hitting percentage all four years. He is the career record holder at OSU in hitting percentage (.481), block assists (473) and total blocks (548) and sits eighth in aces (59), second in blocks per game (1.56) and seventh in kills (1,206). During McMillan’s tenure, the Buckeyes accumulated a 90-21 overall record with three first-places finishes in the MIVA. A graduate assistant coach for Ohio State during the 2003 season, McMillan has also served as a club coach for several programs, most recently coaching the Excel Volleyball Club 18 boys program in Glenview, Ill. He guided the Next Level 16 boys program in Franklin, Wis., in 2005 and 2006 and coached and supervised the Stellar Sports LLC 15 girls club team in Colorado Springs, Colo., with duties including practice and match coaching as well as travel and on-site supervision. McMillan graduated from Ohio State in 2000 with a double major in international business and marketing, and has worked outside of the volleyball community with such corporations as DePuy Orthopedics and Cosentino North America.

2011 EIVA Champions

The Penn State men’s volleyball team closed out the 2012 season making its 27th NCAA appearance, the 17th under head coach Mark Pavlik. The Nittany Lions won their 24th overall and 14th straight EIVA Tournament title with a -1 win against George Mason on April 28. Penn State clinched its 28th overall EIVA/ECVL Championship Title since 1976 and the 17th under Pavlik a few weeks earlier with a five set win against Harvard on April 7. The squad improved its already impressive conference record to 250-11, which is a blistering 96 percent winning percentage. The Nittany Lions went undefeated in the EIVA at 14-0 for the 16th time in program history and the 13th time under Pavlik’s guidance. Penn State garnered seven EIVA Postseason awards, including the Ulvado Acosta Memorial Player of the Year which went to redshirt senior Joe Sunder for the second consecutive season. Redshirt senior Edgardo Goas, freshman Aaron Russell and redshirt freshman Connor Curry all earned spots on the All-EIVA First Team, while junior Nick Turko and redshirt freshman Nick Goodell were placed on the All-EIVA Second Team. At the EIVA Championship, Sunder was named the EIVA Championship Most Outstanding Player, while Goas and Russell both earned spots on the EIVA Championship AllTournament Team. Sunder and Goas closed out their Penn State careers with their names firmly entrenched in the Penn State record book. Sunder finished his final season ranked in the top five in two career categories. He is fourth all-time in kills with 1,468 and ranks fifth in aces with 107. Goas collected 5,164 assists during his career to rank second all-time, but first in the rally-scoring era. Seven Nittany Lions earned a total of 12 weekly awards during the 2012 season. Curry led the Nittany Lions with four EIVA Defensive Player of the Week Awards, while Goodell earned three EIVA Offensive Player of the

32

Week honors. Goas, Sunder, sophomore Peter Russell, Aaron Russell, and junior Tom Comfort all were honored as EIVA Offensive Players of the Week. Penn State hosted the EIVA Championship at Rec Hall for the 14th straight season. After winning the EIVA regular season title to secure the top seed in the tournament the Nittany Lions defeated Princeton 3-0 (2520, 25-12, 25-22) in the semifinals and George Mason 3-1 (25-16, 25-21, 20-25, 25-22) in the finals for the conference crown. Penn State improved its all-time conference tournament mark to 63-3 dating back to 1986. The Nittany Lions have advanced to the championship match in 26 conference tournaments, posting an overall record of 24-3 in championship matches. PSU has never been defeated in a conference tournament match held at Rec Hall, compiling a 42-0 record. Winning the EIVA Championship earned the Nittany Lions an automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA National Collegiate Men’s Volleyball Championship hosted by USC. Penn State earned the No. 4 seed and faced top-seeded UC Irvine in the National Semifinals. USC was the No. 2 seed and Lewis was selected as the No. 3 seed. The Anteaters defeated the Nittany Lions, 3-1 (25-18, 18-25, 15-25, 19-25) to advance and eventually win the NCAA National Championship. Sunder secured a spot on the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team to represent the Nittany Lions. Penn State closed out its season ranked seventh in the nation. Sunder was named an AVCA Second Team All-American, the second honor of his career. The award brings Penn State’s total number of All-Americans to 79 since 1971.

PENN STATE 2012–13 • Men’s Volleyball • 28-Time Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) Champions

2008 National Champions Lions Rally To Defeat Pepperdine, 3-1, Capture Second NCAA National Title IRVINE, Calif., May 3, 2008 - Behind a career night from senior setter Luke Murray, the top-ranked Penn State men’s volleyball team captured its second National Championship title in school history with a four-game win over No. 2 Pepperdine (27-30, 33-31, 30-25, 30-23). Junior outside hitter Matt Anderson was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Championship and joined Murray, junior middle hitter Max Holt and sophomore middle hitter Max Lipsitz along with Pepperdine’s Paul Carroll, J.D. Schleppenbach and Jonathan Winder on the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team. In the final match of his career, Murray was nothing short of outstanding. The 6-foot setter recorded his first collegiate triple-double with a season-high 63 assists, a career-high 12 digs and a career-high 11 blocks while leading the Nittany Lions to a team hitting percentage of .407. For the NCAA Championship, Murray directed the Nittany Lions to a combined .409 hitting percentage and for the season, Penn State shattered the previous team hitting percentage record of .384 set by the 1994 National Champions, attacking at a .399 clip for the 2008 campaign. Anderson led the Nittany Lions with 29 kills on .451 hitting against Pepperdine while Lipsitz set a new career high with 17 kills on .500 hitting. Holt added in 12 kills on .417 hitting while junior opposite Ryan Sweitzer contributed 10 kills. The unsung hero of the match, freshman libero Dennis Del Valle recorded a match-high and career-high-tying 16 digs and for the NCAA Championship, Del Valle racked up 30 total digs for an average of 3.75 digs per game. In addition to Murray’s 12 digs, junior outside hitter Jay Stauffer was also a key part of the Lion defense as he tallied nine digs, one shy of his season best. Penn State set a new season high for blocks as it racked up 19 total blocks in the contest, including 5.5 in the first game alone. Murray led the way with 11 as Holt tied his career high with nine stuffs, Lipsitz added six, Stauffer equaled his personal-best with four, Anderson added in three, Sweitzer notched two and junior middle hitter Jon Sherrick recorded a crucial stuff in the fourth game. A Murray and Holt blocked opened up the match and the Nittany Lions remained on top, going up 8-5 on a Lipsitz kill and ace and Holt and Stauffer block before Holt and Anderson kills gave the Lions the 10-6 lead and forced a Pepperdine timeout. Out of the break, another monster stuff by Holt and Murray, along with a Wave attack error and a Sweitzer ace that rolled along the tape and dropped in, put Penn State up 13-6. Following a Pepperdine kill, a block by Murray and Holt and a triple stuff by Murray, Holt and Anderson made it 15-7, but two Pepperdine kills brought them within six at 15-9. The teams traded kills and a Wave ace and Lion attack error trimmed the Lion lead to four at 16-12. The Waves scored twice on kills before a Lipsitz kill halted the run. A Lion service error and a Pepperdine ace helped the Waves score seven of the next eight points to pull ahead 21-19. A monster Anderson kill out of a timeout pulled Penn State within one at 21-20 and the teams traded kills twice before a Pepperdine kill and ace aided them in going up 26-22. Lion put-aways from Lipsitz and Anderson helped Penn State pull within two at 26-24 and following a Wave block, an Anderson kill and a Sweitzer put-away trimmed the gap to 27-26. Out of the break, the teams traded points before a Wave kill and block gave them the game, 30-27. Penn State took the 4-1 lead in the second game aided by two Anderson kills and a Murray put-away. A Sweitzer and Lipsitz block made it 6-4 but Pepperdine fought back to tie the game at 6-6 with two kills. Seven ties ensued before a Wave kill off the Nittany Lion block put Pepperdine ahead 15-14. Out of the break, kills from Sweitzer and Anderson along with a block from Holt and Stauffer pushed Penn State ahead 17-15. A Lion service error was quickly followed by kills from

Holt and Murray along with a Murray and Holt block to give Penn State the 2016. Two Pepperdine kills pulled them within two at 20-18 and the teams traded points four times before another Wave kill trimmed the Lion lead to one at 24-23. Following a Penn State timeout, the squads continued to exchange points, with a Sweitzer kill giving the Lions the 27-25 advantage. But a Penn State attack that landed wide and a Wave service ace knotted the game at 27-27. A Sweitzer kill put Penn State up 28-27 but Pepperdine responded with a kill and block of its own to swing the momentum and put the Waves ahead 29-28. A Lipsitz kill evened the score and the teams exchanged kills to tie the game at 30-30. Pepperdine followed up an attack error with a kill to make it 31-31 and a Sweitzer kill put Penn State ahead 32-31 before an Anderson kill ended the game, 33-31. The Nittany Lions took the 5-3 lead in the third game on two Anderson kills and went up 7-6 on another Anderson put-away. The Waves responded with two kills and a block to go ahead 9-7 but a Holt kill and ace helped Penn State tie the game at 10-10. The teams traded points twice before a Sweitzer kill and Lion triple block from Stauffer, Lipsitz and Sweitzer put Penn State up 14-12. Three more exchanges of points and a Wave attack error gave Penn State the 18-15 advantage before Lion kills from Anderson and Lipsitz pushed the Lion lead to 21-17. The squads exchanged errors and a Sweitzer kill and Stauffer and Lipsitz block put Penn State up 24-18. The Waves came back with two kills and a block before a Holt kill gave the Lions the 25-21 lead but a Pepperdine kill and ace trimmed the Penn State lead to two at 25-23. A Wave attack error gave Penn State the 26-23 lead but Pepperdine responded with two consecutive kills to pull within one at 26-25. An Anderson kill and a Penn State triple block from Anderson, Lipsitz and Murray pushed the Lions up 28-25 before a Wave attack error and another Penn State triple block from Anderson, Lipsitz and Murray ended the game, 30-25. Penn State jumped out to the quick 6-0 lead to start the fourth game behind a Wave service error, a Murray and Lipsitz block, a Pepperdine attack error and Nittany Lion kills from Lipsitz and Anderson as the Waves used both of their timeouts in the run. Lipsitz kills helped Penn State go up 7-1 and then 10-4 before another Lipsitz put-away made it 14-7. But Pepperdine claimed three of the next four points to pull within four at 15-11. The teams traded points three times before Lion kills from Anderson and Murray and two Pepperdine errors put Penn State ahead 22-14. The Waves took three of the next four points to pull within six at 2317 and the squads traded service errors, with an Anderson kill making it 25-18 and a Sweitzer kill making it 26-19. A Lion block by Holt and Sherrick made it 27-19 and following a Pepperdine kill, Holt returned the favor to put the Lions ahead 28-20.

2008 NCAA National Champions

Penn State is the only school outside of California to have its men’s and women’s programs both capture a national championship. The Nittany Lion women’s squad won the title in 1999 and then outlasted Stanford in five games at Arco Arena in Sacramento on Dec. 15, 2007. The Nittany Lions join Stanford, Long Beach State, UCLA and USC as the only programs to accomplish the feat. Matt Anderson became Penn State’s second-ever NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player, joining Ramon Hernandez, who earned the honor in 1994. The Nittany Lions have now had 27 players named to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament team with the 2008 additions of Anderson, Max Holt, Luke Murray and Max Lipsitz. Senior setter Luke Murray ended his career on an outstanding note, not only with a national title but also with his first collegiate triple-double. The sixfoot setter had his first collegiate triple-double with a season-high 63 assists, a career-high 12 digs and a career-high 11 blocks versus Pepperdine. Freshman libero Dennis Del Valle recorded a match-high and career-hightying 16 digs and for the NCAA Championship, Del Valle racked up 30 total digs for an average of 3.75 digs per game. He ended the season with 264 digs, which places him eighth all-time on Penn State’s single season digs list.

Junior opposite Ryan Sweitzer’s 10 kills against the Waves gave him 19 double-digit kill matches for the year. He recorded a career-high in every statistical category during the 2008 season. Penn State recorded a season-high 19 blocks in the National Championship match against Pepperdine, besting its previous season-high of 18.5 set against Ohio State in the NCAA National Semifinal on Thursday, May 1. For the NCAA Championship as a team, the Nittany Lions recorded 37.5 team blocks, good for an average of 4.69 blocks per game. Penn State is just the second school to win the NCAA men’s and women’s volleyball national title in same academic year, joining Stanford in 1996-97. The NCAA began sponsoring women’s volleyball in 1981. Sophomore middle hitter Max Lipsitz recorded a career-high 17 kills on .500 hitting in the National Championship match. He also posted a career-high 12 blocks in the NCAA National Semifinal win over Ohio State on May 1. Junior outside hitter Jay Stauffer fell one dig shy of his career-best with nine against Pepperdine, but equaled his personal-best with four blocks.

PENN STATE 2012–13 • Men’s Volleyball • 28-Time Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) Champions

2008 NCAA National Champions NCAA Championship Quotes National Championship: Penn State 3, Pepperdine 1 Opening Statement: Mark Pavlik (Penn State Head Coach) “I’d like to say congratulations to Coach Dunphy and his staff for the run that their Pepperdine team made, dealing with the injuries they had. This was a microcosm of our season, coming back from a disappointing game one to win three straight. Overall, I thought that they responded well from game one, coming back from the four-point run that we gave up.” On the play that he felt changed the match: “The biggest play in my mind was in game two when it was tied 28-28, and (Pepperdine’s Paul) Carroll served a laser that Dennis (Del Valle) just nailed, Luke put up and Max just put it away. I thought that really made a difference and changed our momentum. I don’t want that play to get lost in all the other things we did well.” On what this match means to him: “I’m really just the caretaker of this program. To give this team the opportunity to play their best at the highest level, it’s rewarding to me. These guys played better than I coached, that’s for sure.” On an East Coast team winning the National Championship: “The grassroots at scholastic and club level, the players are in it for the right reasons. You don’t have to have a tan in February to be a good volleyball player. These guys played their butts off, and hopefully there’s some 12-year-old in Iowa that decides if they work hard, they can be like Matty [Anderson].” On the idea of having a libero on the All-Tournament team: “I have three words for you: Dennis Del Valle. The libero position has become so important for the men’s game. When you have someone who is as good as Dennis, it gives your setter a chance to guide you to a .400 hitting percentage on the year. He’s phenomenal.” Matt Anderson (Junior Outside Hitter) ­ “I’m kind of awe-struck right now with what happened. Coming back again, just like we did at the Outrigger [against Hawai’i], it’s pretty cool to see. One of the things I’m proud of is our never-say-die attitude. I had all the confidence in the world in Jay, Max and myself to put balls away, and in Luke to always put things right where they needed to be.” On consecutive blocks on Paul Carroll at the end of game three: “Any time you can block a player and take them out of their offense, take them out of their flow, especially a big hitter like Paul, it’s a good thing. He was really beating us early, so it was good to turn it around.” Luke Murray (Senior Setter) ­ On attacking from the middle: “That was our game plan from the beginning. (Pepperdine) doesn’t really set their middles much, so with their scout team, they don’t really see an attack there like Max & Max can make.”

On his play encouraging smaller setters: “I hope it does. It just goes to show that you don’t have to be huge, just be smart, and have a good libero.” Dennis Del Valle (Freshman libero) ­ “We set a goal at the beginning of the season, and we just think of that goal and practice really hard in the gym. My teammates gave me the confidence I had to play hard.” Opening Statement: Marv Dunphy (Pepperdine Head Coach) “I give a lot of credit to Penn State. We had a lot of chances. We snuck back in the game and took game one. They (Penn State) made some great plays to take game two. Maybe if we got that game it might of been different but you can’t play the shoulda, woulda, coulda game. I give them credit, they made plays when they needed to.” Regarding his players being tired from four matches in the past two weeks: “I don’t think what we did a few nights ago or a few weeks ago mattered tonight. Their middles were more experienced and came in with more pedigree than us. They have good talent in there.” On injuries during the season: “For awhile I would have figured on going 12-9, but we had a good run at the end. To have a chance to compete for the national championship and then come up short is tough. We can say we got better as time went on, but it might take awhile for that to sink in.” Jonathan Winder (Senior setter) “We wanted to set the middle, it just wasn’t working too well. We didn’t have success early and our middle just didn’t work, in large part to their serve that was knocking us off the net. It was really their good serving, they served tough a lot.” On his decision to attend Pepperdine: “It was a great decision to come here and it is hard to think that it is over. It will be tough to leave. The coaching staff we have had here has been tremendous. Pepperdine is one of the classiest schools in America. There is no place like it. I am truly blessed to have gone there. Winning the national championship my freshman year, I am glad to have done that.” Paul Carroll (Junior opposite): “I felt they made some good plays at the right time. They are a pretty good team.” On the block in game two to take the 29-28 lead: “I felt that was a huge play in the match. There was a rally and we had some good touches. They (Penn State) ended up making some good plays to end the game.”

2008 NCAA National Champions A Visit to the White House As another perk to winning their respective NCAA National Championships, the 2008 Penn State men’s volleyball team and the 2007 Penn State women’s volleyball team and were invited to the White House to meet with President George W. Bush on Tuesday, June 24, 2008. Both squads enjoyed a tour of the East Wing of the White House before individually meeting with the President. He chatted with each group, asking about the season and their championship, where the student-athletes were from and what they planned to do in the future. The team captains then presented the President with a gift - a jointly-signed Penn State No. 1 volleyball jersey and a red, white and blue volleyball - before taking a group photo. The teams were then escorted to the Blue Room of the White House before being formally announced to the South Lawn, where they descended the stairs to a reserved seating area. The captains of each of the 18 National Championship teams in attendance were then escorted to a stage in front of the group and the President joined them, speaking to the crowd and recognizing each team for their feats.

1994 NCAA National Champions

1994 National Champions

The Penn State men’s volleyball team accomplished what many thought would be impossible in 1994 when it became the first team from anywhere other than California to win a national title. Teams from the Golden State had claimed the previous 24 NCAA titles. Not only was Penn State the only program in men’s volleyball from the East to win a national title, no women’s team east of the Mississippi River had ever won a national title. After qualifying for nine NCAA Tournaments since 1981, Penn State had proven themselves as the top team in the East but defeating a California team to win the title still seemed like a dream. The dream became a reality on April 3, 1994 when the Nittany Lions outlasted perennial powerhouse and 14-time NCAA champion UCLA 9-15, 15-13, 4-15, 15-12, 15-12 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Ind. A record-setting crowd of 7,908 witnessed Penn State come back from an 11-4 deficit in the fourth game to outscore the Bruins 11-1 down the stretch to force a fifth game and seize the momentum. Penn State then jumped out to a 8-4 lead in the final frame, saw UCLA rally to tie at 12-12, but didn’t wilt, scoring the final three points. Senior co-captain Byron Schneider posted the match winning kill and the Lions had made history. Ramon Hernandez recorded one of the most clutch performances in NCAA Tournament history in the championship match by recording 38 kills, a .444 hitting percentage and 10 digs. Ed Josefoski and Schneider each chipped in 18 kills, while Josefoski posted a team-high 12 digs. Both were named to the All-Tournament team. Just a freshman, Ivan Contreras added seven blocks and 14 kills while Kevin Hourican led the team with 11 blocks. 50

Setter Carlos Ortiz recorded 87 assists, seven kills and 10 digs. Following the match, head coach Tom Peterson was ecstatic. “We made history!” Peterson exclaimed. “No one can take that away from any of us. You can always do incredible things, but to make history that’s something even more special. That’s what we did; it will never happen again. It really does mean something special. I hope people will realize what these guys accomplished. It’s tremendous to bring the national championship to Penn State and the East for the first time.” To reach the championship, Penn State defeated Ball State 9-15, 15-7, 15-10, 15-6. Schneider was magnificent, killing 24 balls with a .645 hitting percentage and adding 12 digs. Contreras had 19 kills and a time-high eight blocks. Ortiz ran the offense flawlessly with 79 assists, adding seven digs and six blocks. The Nittany Lions controlled the match, hitting .406 as a team. The NCAA title capped off a 25-3 season that also saw the Lions take the EIVA crown. Their only losses came at the hands of Stanford, Indiana-Purdue at Fort Wayne and Ball State. Penn State recorded victories over some of the top programs that season, defeating Stanford twice, Ball State, Brigham Young and Ohio State three times. The Lions had four players finish the season with over 300 kills, led by Hernandez with 440. Jose­foski, Contreras and Sch­neider all ended with over 300. Hernandez, Contreras, Josefos­ki and Ortiz were named All-Americans. Penn State also became just the fifth school in NCAA history and the first from the East to have its men’s and women’s volleyball programs reach the championship match in the same season. The women’s squad, under head coach Russ Rose was ousted by Long Beach State after a 31-5 season. They joined only UCLA, Long Beach State, Stanford and USC in that elite group.
