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 run. Kills by Fawcett and freshman middle hitter Arielle Wilson (Broadview, Ill.) pushed Penn State's lead to 13-7. A block by Wilson and freshman opposite Blair Brown (Purcellville, Va.) made it 14-8. The Nittany Lions immediately seized the opportunity on their first match point, as sophomore outside hitter Megan Hodge (Durham, N.C.) delivered her 26th kill of the match, setting off jubilation among the Nittany Lions. Penn State won Game 1, 30-25. Stanford led 15-13, but the Nittany Lions scored five consecutive points to take a 18-15 lead. The game was tied at 22-22, but Penn State took the lead for good on a service error by the Cardinal and a kill by Harmotto. A block by Fawcett made it 29-24

and she delivered the game-winning kill for the 30-25 margin. Penn State hit .263 in the opening game and Stanford hit .159. The Nittany Lions captured Game 2, 30-26. Penn State took the lead for good on a Fawcett kill to make it 13-12. Another Fawcett kill made it 29-25 and a block by Glass and Harmotto gave the Lions the 30-26 win and a 2-0 lead. Penn State hit .525 in the game, while the Cardinal hit .357. Stanford won Game 3, 30-23, snapping a streak of 17 consecutive winning games for the Nittany Lions in the 2007 NCAA Tournament. Penn State took its last lead at 7-6 on a block by freshman middle hitter Arielle Wilson, but the Cardinal took the lead for good at 9-8. The Cardinals won Game 4, 30-19, to force the decisive fifth game. The national championship match was the fifth in program history for the Nittany Lions, as they also advanced in 1993, 1997, 1998 and 1999, capturing the title in 1999. Penn State defeated Stanford (15-2, 15-10, 15-7) on Dec. 18, 1999 in Honolulu, Hawaii, to give the Lions their first NCAA Championship. The two teams met earlier in 2007 in New Haven, Conn., with Stanford outlasting Penn State in five games (30-23, 23-30, 27-30, 30-28, 15-9) on Sept. 15. The Nittany Lions had won 25 consecutive matches since the loss entering the title match, including a 20-0 record in winning a fifth consecutive Big Ten Championship. The NCAA Championship match featured eight 2007 AVCA AllAmericans, including first teamers Fawcett, Hodge and Harmotto for Penn State and Bryn Kehoe, Foluke Akinradewo and Cynthia Barboza for Stanford. Penn State's Glass and Stanford's Alix Klineman both earned second team honors. Stanford was playing less than 120 miles from Arco Arena, while the Nittany Lions traveled more than 2,300 miles to capture the program's second NCAA Championship.

2007 NCAA National Champions

NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP POST MATCH QUOTES Opening Statement: Russ Rose (Head Coach) "Well I thought the match had a couple of different matches in there. I thought the first couple of games had a pretty even level of play. I don't think it was the best level that either team could play but we gritted it out and played hard enough to get those two games. In the next couple of games, as you would expect from a great team like Stanford, they kept fighting and we ran into a few passing problems and had some challenges along the way, and I thought we lost our composure a little bit in the fourth game. But we hit .368 and lost and they hit .535 and had no hitting errors in the fourth game, so it doesn't really make a difference who's on the other side of the net when somebody hits .535. Going into the fifth game I felt we didn't have the momentum, but there was no reason to think we didn't have a chance, and that's what I said. I thought we took control, we had a few touches and it's all about converting at that time and I thought we did a good job of that. Alisha had two or three kills and we played hard at the time we needed to play hard. Certainly the people that are up here tonight did a great job at some of the skills that we count on them to do. That's why they work hard. That was the goal. The goal was to be the national champion and that's what we talked about and that's what we tried to do in putting this team together. To compete at the highest level. We won the match, we won the national championship and talk to the players, they're the ones that did it." On the difference in the team now from the loss to Stanford in September "Earlier in the year it was Arie (Wilson's) first match that she started. We were up 21 and had opportunities in the fourth game to win the match. This evening we scored two points more than the other team in total points so it was really a situation where, with rally scoring, there are ebbs and flows and you have to try to keep your head about you when things are going bad. We didn't relax when we were up 2-0. You don't get here by having that as one of your traits. And Stanford being down 0-2, they wouldn't get here having a trait like that where they would give up. So when things were going bad we knew we still had a fifth game. We train hard and we believe that we have an opportunity against everyone we play. We play in a great conference where we play back-to-back nights against great teams and good crowds, so I don't think the crowd was a factor. The opportunity was out there and we seized it." On the rotation matchup in Game 5 "Christa in the left front is good for us. I thought even in the fourth game where we were struggling to hit .380, they couldn't stop her. So I wanted to go with that. One of our plans was to recognize the fact that Foluke is a great offensive player and we didn't have any interest in saying ‘let's think about stopping her.' She could hit a kill every time but the goal is to win a national championship. That's not to say we ignored her. We put two people on her on good passes in some situations, but in a short game I think you want to feel comfortable with what you're doing. I thought we had all the opportunities to sub the people we wanted and I think we just got good touches. We had some conversion opportunities and we got those. We could have picked a certain lineup that might not have worked and tonight it worked. When we played Stanford last time we hit negative in the fifth game and tonight they hit negative in the fifth game. So that might be just the difference that comes right out at me." On the match being a virtual home game for Stanford, and on Penn State representing the rest of the country "I don't want to comment about the Pac-10 because I'm not an expert about the Pac-10 and I don't feel I'm an expert on the Big Ten. There are a lot of great teams and a lot of great players and great coaches around the country. There are a lot of peo-

ple that maybe don't feel that way, but I feel that way. I coach Penn State and I care about Penn State and if Penn State's not in it I care about other Big Ten teams because I'm a loyal guy." On the decision n ot to redshirt Arielle Wilson "It sure makes me look like I was an idiot considering it right? I mean she hit what, .500, .600, .900 in one of the matches in the playoffs? But those things happen because other people allow it to happen. The staff works hard, the passing is good, Alisha continues to develop. And as Arielle said last weekend when she was MVP of the Regional, ‘I just hit over them.' That sums it up. She gets up, likes to hit and that's the beauty of what she does. She needs to learn a lot of other things about the game. But the rally score game is still a strange animal to me. We had conversations as a staff about it. We had the same questions last year because I redshirted Blair Brown when she was my best blocker and we needed blocking at that position. And I think that'll prove to be a good decision. But Arielle plays great. She's fresh. I'm not surprised about any of the things she's doing and I hope she continues to get better. It proves to be a very good decision. When we were discussing it, I was going home and my 12-year old son told me ‘you can't redshirt her,' so he broke the tie I guess." Alisha Glass (Sophomore Setter) On the efficiency of the passers throughout the tournament "If you look at our team, when we do pass well we're hard to stop. And the times when we were strong was when we were passing. When the team is passing well, it's fun to watch and it's fun to run the offense and mix things up a little bit. I think we had some streaks where we did struggle with passing a little bit but all in all I think we did pass well, and that gives you the ability to do whatever you want as a setter." On what the mood of the team was like before Game 5 "We didn't really want to look at the momentum. We just wanted to start from the beginning of game 5. We came into this match wanting to win a national championship and in between those games we just said ‘look, we're here, we got here, this is our goal and who says we're not going to come out and be strong.' We did and we won so I think it was a collective effort from everyone; our bench, our fans, everyone understood that we wanted to get it done and it was nice that we could." Megan Hodge (Sophomore Outside Hitter) On the feeling of winning the Championship and being named MVP "As far as the award, that doesn't matter. We got here as a team so all of the awards are nice but that's not what it's about. At this moment, I guess it hasn't really sunk in yet that we won. It's just kind of a surreal feeling - it's great, I'm on a high I guess. It's great." On the strong hitting and ser ving which both set tournament records "I think that's something we definitely stress in practice every day. Serving- we go through plenty of reps serving and coach always talks to us about how our hitting percentage needs to be high because that's how you win. So I think that's just what we've focused on and that's what's gotten us to this point." Christa Harmotto (Junior Middle Hitter) On the difference from Game 4 to Game 5 "You can never really predict what lineup you're going to be against. We knew on a good pass they were going to try to run middle, especially since Foluke was in the front row. So I think we did a good job as far as talking to our blockers in the front row, and I think our defense really picked up as far as making some great defensive plays and we were able to get some strength from that."

A TRIP TO THE WHITE HOUSE

As another perk to winning their respective NCAA National Championships, the 2007 Penn State women’s volleyball team and the 2008 Penn State men’s volleyball team 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.

"I thought we hung in there defensively and gave ourselves opportunities for a chance for Megan to take big swings at the end. I thought it was a group effort in a lot of areas. It certainly wasn't a match that had the same energy from the match a couple of nights ago. at one had the significance to get us here.

2008 NCAA National Champions Opening Statement: Russ Rose (Head Coach)

"First I want to congratulate Stanford on the great season they had. ank you to the city of Omaha for supporting the event. I don't think it was the prettiest match to determine the national championship, but it was a match that was played very hard by both teams. I thought we hung in there defensively and gave ourselves opportunities for a chance for Megan to take big swings at the end. I thought it was a group effort in a lot of areas. It certainly wasn't a match that had the same energy from the match a couple of nights ago. at one had the significance to get us here. Tonight's has special significance, especially for the seniors." On floor defense not getting the credit it deserved "Certainly in comparing our statistics to other teams, it's always been a challenge. For the year we're hitting close to .400. I think over the course of the season, maybe out of the 38 matches we were outdug once the entire season. I think our defense was good, but certainly our bread and butter has been the offense and the net play and Alisha's ability to get a variety of hitters involved at the net. I think that has always been the strength of this team."

On the expectations on this year’s team "I think for people who coach they know that seasons end at a certain time, and you hope that your season ends on the last dig of the season with someone making a great play. ere was certainly pressure placed on this team because of the number of people returning from last year's championship team, and the competitive level of volleyball we play in the Big Ten Conference was challenging. Last weekend playing against a great Cal team in regionals was challenging. Certainly the match ursday night against Nebraska was an incredible match to participate in. From that standpoint there was relief. In this case there is a lot of happiness and excitement because they could look back. I told them all along all season long keep working hard. ere will be a time to look back on it. Hopefully they'll look back and say that they didn't leave anything left in the tank. Certainly on ursday night, there wasn't much left at the end."

Nicole Fawcett (Senior Outside Hitter)

On what was going through her head after hitting the ball on the last point "Going through my head was they better call the touch. At that point it did seem like an eternity, but Megan was already celebrating, so I thought we must have gotten the point. It was good to see everyone rushing to the floor."

Alisha Glass (Junior Setter)

On special tactics or strategies used tonight "I think that Stanford has some great players. Foluke (Akinradewo) is an amazing athlete, as well as Cynthia (Barboza) and Alix (Klineman.) ey definitely had some players we needed to focus on that we needed to stop or try to slow down. at was some of the team goals. en playing our own game and trying to win the serve and pass game. ere are a lot of things we focused on, but I think we tried to do those things especially."

Megan Hodge (Sophomore Outside Hitter)

On the third game and whether she was determined not to have a relapse of the match with Nebraska "As a team ursday night and even last year we let off a little in the third game. It turned into a more competitive match going into five. We got it in our heads we had to get out there and play hard."

Blair Brown (Sophomore Middle Hitter)

On her role in tonight’s game "It's exciting, but I want to do my part for the team. If the team needs me to have a bigger role, I want to step up and do my part."

2009 Trip to Brazil May 10 Greetings from Sao Paulo! Today was the first day we spent in Sao Paulo, and boy was it eventful! We began the day enjoying a nice complimentary breakfast from the hotel and then all jumped into our awesome two-story bus to head into town. We toured the very interesting and historical city of Sao Paulo with our wonderful tour guide Morris (at least I think that is how you spell his name =). He taught us many, many things about the city and a few things stood out to me in the outing. First, Sao Paulo specifically is famous for its graffiti. The artists take much pride their artwork while creating competitions with other artists around the city to see who can create the most difficult piece of work. Second, if women around the city want to get married, they must pray to St. Anthony so that he will help them find a husband. (As soon as I learned this, I held a small prayer session with a few of my teammates). After several hours of touring the city, we stopped at the Estadio Municipa to buy tickets to the professional soccer game. The Corinthians, or the home team, is the professional team that Cristiano Ronaldo plays for, so we were all very excited to have the opportunity to see him play! After buying our tickets, we took a quick trip down to a market place where we shopped for an hour or so and then ate an incredible lunch. The food, as we have all discovered, is incredible and it is so much fun to try all of these new dishes and experience all the new tastes (especially this drink they call Guarana, it is simply delicious!). After lunch, we drove back to the stadium two hours before the game started to enjoy the pregame festivities. In one corner of the stadium, the away team was banging their drums and screaming their teams’ anthem. In the other corner, and scattered all over the stadium, the Corinthian fans, dressed in black and white, were stomping and yelling at the fans dressed in red and green. There were policia stationed all around the fence separating us from the field to prevent any sort of fights that might erupt during the match if the game was to get close. It was one of the most invigorating and exciting things I've ever experienced. I know that we have some of the most dedicated fans in the country, but the way these fans supported their team was just incredible. The game began and the screaming continued. The away team scored the first goal, which completely infuriated all of the Corinthian fans. We weren't able to watch the entire game because after sitting in the stands for four hours we all became incredibly hungry and exhausted. We drove to a local pizza parlor which turned out to be quite the adventure. They brought many different types of pizza out for each of us to try, (it would take way too long for me to try and list them all!) but by far the best part of the meal, were the three different dessert pizzas they brought out at the end; one had bananas and this cinnamon spread on it, one had strawberries and dark chocolate and the last one had chocolate and shredded coconut. Absolutely delicious!! Well we finally made it back to the hotel after an incredibly long day and it's time I get to bed! Boa Noite ~ Roberta Holehouse May 11 Today was our first day of playing and I think everyone was anxious to see the different style of play here. We started off the morning with the complimentary breakfast downstairs of the hotel where there were delicious pastries and fruit. We got on our awesome, two story bus and took off to practice. When we arrived at the practice facility, we were in awe of its beauty. There were big beautiful trees everywhere surrounding this huge sports facility. But the first thing we all noticed was the gigantic water slide that we all wanted to go down. When we got in to the gym where we practiced, we all put on our shoes and kneepads and did our normal warm up. While we were waiting for the balls to come, we did some blocking and digging stuff. Then Coach had us circle up while Jess and Tice had a pretty bad wrestling match....no one won. The balls finally arrived and we got to adapt to the balls that they use here. After practice, we got to tour the facility. The facility used to be owned by a bank that sponsored teams but now is more of a country club. Lunch came after the tour and we went to a place where there was more meat, of course. It was a small buffet style with salad, sausage, fries, chicken and other things. They brought meat around the tables and everyone's drink of choice still seems to be Guarana. Right after lunch we went to our match. We arrived at the facility and immediately started to warm up. We split the court with the team during hitting lines. The club team had girls from the ages of 17 to 21 and they were pretty athletic. We played four games with them and won all four. After we played, we exchanged t-shirts with them and then took a group picture. This was another fun day filled with new experiences! ~ Cathy Quilico 106 PENN STATE 2010-2011 WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

2009 Trip to Brazil May 12 The morning started out at the hotel, with the usual complimentary breakfast, in which many of us have become accustomed to crapes (thin French style pancake). You can either add delicious jelly type topping or chocolate, both team favorites. Everyone dressed in the casual Brazilian type attire of shorts and tank tops ready for another adventurous day. The plan for the afternoon was a tour of a different part of the city of Sao Paulo; also known as the shopping district, stop by a wellknown park for lunch and a little walking around. First of all, I must say, people down here drive CRAZY. They don’t use turn signals and just weave in and out of lanes, not to mention the motorcycles that just drive up the center of the lane recklessly. It is an incredible sight to see, so forgive me if I forget different things about today, I got distracted watching the cars fly back and forth. So now to the good stuff, we started with a tour of the scenery on the way to this famous shopping street. We drove around beautiful estates of once famous people, hospitals and gorgeous malls. Among the other sites we drove past, was the Sao Paulo futbol club, another soccer stadium of a pro team in Sao Paulo. After all this driving we stopped at our first destination, the luxurious shopping strip where we recognized many names such as LaCoste, Adidas, Nike, Timberland, and Tommy Hilfiger. One name we did not recognize but were informed of prior to our adventure was the Havaianas, the most famous rubber flip-flops that originated from Brazil. Many of us bought pairs for family as well as friends and ourselves. Unfortunately as well as fortunately, we were limited to half an hour of wandering along this strip (saving many of us lots of Reais). The next stop was the beautiful park called Ibirapuera Park. It is four miles by four miles along the exterior borders and is full of green grass, ponds, bridges and restaurants. Unfortunately we were as a whole pretty worn out and didn’t get the chance to explore more of the park after our delicious buffet style lunch. Clara (AD, our tour guide’s, seven year old niece) has been teaching us Portuguese in exchange for English and sign language, thanks to Tice and Alisha. So of course, at lunch, we were asking the vocabulary queen about lettuce, ice cream and all other sorts of food on the table. After we finished lunch, (no caffeine) Christa and I enjoyed a small (maybe a half cup) of the ever so popular café and well, we were bouncing off the walls with energy for a bit. After we left the outdoor restaurant we walked to a bridge that oversaw a small pond with tons of fish in it (we were told were served them at the restaurant we ate at). We took pictures of the horizon behind us, which happened to be a cityscape of Sao Paulo. Shortly after visiting the near by bridge we walked to the bus and headed back to our hotel for a little nap before the match ahead of us that night. We left the hotel at 5 pm for our match that began at 7 pm. We arrived at the match SUPER early and proceeded to warm up for an hour and half (because it was a real match). As we all warmed up it was very strange to see a Penn State jersey on everyone for another match together. As the match started in a somewhat small gym at UniItalo, the fans packed it in and the noise was overpowering. The first game we came out a bit slow and went back and forth with the other team until we finally pulled out the close 29-27 win. Did I mention we played by international rules so some things were different. For instance I couldn’t serve and no back row subs could enter more than once. We came out a bit stronger at the start of the second game and ended up winning 25-18. After the match we exchanged shirts with some of the UniItalo players and we then hopped on the bus, took a short bus ride to another buffet style, meat serving restaurant, in which they bring the meat to the table and you say nao obrigada or sim obrigada (no thank you or yes thank you). We met a magician who had the best card tricks I have ever seen; in fact I am still stunned. Hope you enjoyed the day vicariously through me. ~ Nummy (Alyssa D’Errico) May 13 Today we woke up at 7:30 to play the semi-pro team, it was a mix of 18 to 25 years old women. We went 3-0 (25-23 25-21 25-23) and then decided to play another game and lost 22-25. All and all we went 3-1 and they were a pretty good team. Once we finished playing, we went straight to the mall to shop. It was a shopping ceter that was over four levels with about 400 stores, many of us ate at McDonald's, Burger King and Pizza Hut, but a few of us ventured away and ate the local food. I personally ate at Burger King; I needed a break. After spending 4 hours in the mall we then traveled to the airport where we had to leave our awesome bus driver and amazing tour guide. We got to the airport a little earlier than expected because we were all pooped from shopping that we showed up an hour early to leave the shopping center. We boarded the plane for Rio and it was a quick trip, like State College to Philly. Once we landed we grabbed our bags and were headed to dinner. Once again it was buffet style, but I feel like we have all tried everything at this point so there wasn’t much pigging out. After dinner it was back to the hotel and a new twist on things, three people in a room, so it will be interesting trying to get ready in the morning. Tonight we are going out to talk with one on the Brazilian national players, Celine. ~ Kelsey Ream 1999, 2007, 2008 & 2009 NCAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS, 29 CONSECUTIVE NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES

2009 Trip to Brazil May 14 After an amazing first night in Rio de Janeiro, we began our journey of sightseeing around 9:30 am. The first thing we did was visit to the largest metropolitan forest of them all. This forest is found on Corco Vado, which is a huge mountain. On top of this mountain is a famous statue, which stands 30 meters high, called The Christ Redeemer. The statue was built in 1931 and it overlooks this gorgeous city. In order to get to this enormous statue we had to take a train up to the very top of the mountain. The ride was not long but very relaxing. There were guys on the very first cart who were playing music and dancing. They were doing it for money and because it was something they seemed to enjoy doing. When arrived to the top we got off the train and continued our journey toward The Christ Redeemer. If you decided to walk to the statue you had 250 flights of stairs to get there. But, if you waited in the long line for the elevator it would take you the 10 flights to get to the top. Most of us decided to enjoy the experience and take the stairs. On the way up was the most amazing view I and everyone else had seen since we arrived in Brazil. We were not only at the very top of this huge mountain, but we were overlooking the beautiful scenery of Rio de Janeiro. You better believe that tons of photos were taken of The Redeemer and of everyone¹s smiling faces. After a breathtaking adventure at the top of this mountain we headed back down by train and loaded the bus. We were headed to lunch at 12 pm and of course it was buffetstyle eating. By 1:30 pm we were on our way back to the lovely hotel. We got back to the hotel at about 2 pm and we all decided to make our way to the beach. We changed out of our clothes and were on our way to get some sun. The beach is directly in front of our hotel so we walked over as a group, set up our chairs and towels and enjoyed the people, sun, and the pretty scenery. We ended up leaving around 4 pm and headed back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. Dinner began at 7 pm; we all cleaned up very nicely and loaded the bus. We arrived at a pizza place, where they had all types of pizzas - shrimp, meat lovers, veggie, mushroom and Brazilian sausage. For dessert we had chocolate covered with strawberries, chocolate covered with M&M¹s, banana covered with cinnamon all laid on thin crust. As you can image dinner was very fulfilling! After dinner, we attended this amazing Brazilian show, by the name of Plata Forma. The show was interesting and entertaining. There was a lot of good Brazilian music and dancing by men and women. It reminded me of Las Vegas because of how colorful all the costumes were and boy did they sure know how to move!!!! ~ Arielle Wilson May 16 It was a sad and rainy morning when we had to leave Rio. So far it was our favorite city, and we weren’t sure it could get much better. We made the long bus trip to Saquarema. The bus was filled with sleepers and movie watchers. Jenna, our trainer, was on a mission to watch She’s The Man. For those of you that aren’t familiar with this movie, it’s a youthful comedy where Amanda Bynes pretends to be her brother at his new school for two weeks while he’s away in London. She tries to prove herself as a men’s soccer player and falls for her roommate/teammate in the process. Needless to say, Coach was not thrilled about the selection and running as punishment was mentioned several times! We sat down to a late lunch and then the afternoon was left to our own choice of beach exploring, relaxing in the courtyard, napping, or getting on the computer to keep in touch with the rest of the world. I sit in my room which is located right next to the pool and entrance to the beach where I can hear waves crashing and Brazilian music playing in the background, and I wonder how I could possibly feel more at ease. Moments like this make you realize how much of an opportunity this whole trip is. A thank you goes out to everyone who’s had their hand in making it possible because experiencing this country the way that we have, meeting the people we’ve met, and sharing it with each other is something that we’ll never forget. Next we traveled to the training center. There weren’t a lot of fans, but then again the gym wasn’t really made to hold people as much as it was made to be set up for practice and training. From hitting warm ups you could tell that this team was an excitable bunch. They were young, fresh, and excited to finally be playing someone as opposed to training everyday. We squeaked out a win in game one not playing our best. Not playing our best turned to not playing well at all in the next two games. We would get small leads and a missed serve, errors on our part, or a really bad call to their advantage would allow them to catch up, take the lead, and win those games. We came back to win the fourth, not wanting to let them think we didn’t come to play. A fifth and final game was played and we got down right off the bat just like in our Nebraska match. We were able to draw on that experience and make plays at the net and in the back-row to keep us in it. We eventually fought back for the win. We headed back to our hotel for a night of dinner, enjoying each other’s company, and peaceful sleep. Signing off from Brazil… ~Alisha Glass 108 PENN STATE 2010-2011 WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

2009 Trip to Brazil May 19 I’m going to start this off a little differently today and begin by thanking everyone that made this trip possible. I cannot express the gratitude we feel in being able to experience such a beautiful and kind culture that enables us to play the sport we love and find great competition (and great people to play against). To be able to spend this time with my teammates, coaches and members of the booster family only enhanced our adventures further and I could not have asked for a better group of people to join me in this great experience. This trip has been the chance of a lifetime, unforgettable and unbelievable, truly a dream come true for all those involved. As gorgeous as Buzios was immediately, we only got a small taste of its beauty during our first night here. Today, we walked (everything is extremely convenient and in walking distance) to the pier to take a boat tour around the islands surrounding Buzios. Within minutes of boarding the boat it was a crowd favorite; the view was absolutely breathtaking in every direction. We continued to gasp at the sights of the mountains in the background and bask in the sunlight until we hit the next island. Closer to land than the previous stop, we decided to get a short workout in by swimming to the island. Five minutes later we all washed up on shore (a little worse for the wear), took the island by storm and claimed it as our own with pictures as proof. A few of the girls also snorkeled and saw “tropical fish” in the shallows. Needless to say, once the boat returned to the pier we were all trying to convince the captain to “accidentally” miss his mark with the rope so we could go on another loop around Buzios. For dinner, we all found another buffet with an excellent assortment of fresh meats, made to order pastas, salads, fruits and even pizza. We sufficiently stuffed ourselves until we were ready for another night of shopping downtown for different Brazilian knick knacks to bring back for our loved ones (no spoilers!). We also found a place that made the largest chocolate crepes I have ever seen and everyone gathered around to try them out. I would highly recommend a chocolate crepe from Buzios if you ever find yourself here. Now, sitting in the hotel after a long night of wandering from shop to shop, the girls sit around on their computers talking to parents or friends and challenge some of the coaches and boosters to card games. With only two days left in Brazil, everyone is starting to realize that this dream of a vacation is actually coming to an end. The experiences we have had the blessing to be a part of are once in a lifetime, and the opportunity to interact with such an incredible culture and see a beautiful part of the world was unimaginable. We cannot thank you enough. ~ Blair Brown

May 20 Today has been a very relaxing day. All of us girls woke up around 9:15 for breakfast and then left the hotel for the beach. On the way there, we got easily distracted and stopped in several shops along the way. Then, we went to a beach that was about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. It was a small, nice beach with a few restaurants right on the the beach. After a couple hours of catching some rays we decided we better leave to make it to lunch on time. Tonight we ate our last pizza dinner. Pizza has been one of the favorite meals here in Brazil, mainly because of the amazing desert pizzas they make here. It was a great last dinner to have in Brazil. After dinner we all headed to one of our favorite places that makes delicious crepes (as if we didn't already have enough desert). All of us ordered different ones from banana and chocolate to ice cream and chocolate. This place is very fun because not only is there great dessert, but there is a DJ playing music, and there are ping pong tables and bean bags to sit in around some tables. It seemed as though Penn State had taken over the place because every where you looked, you would see someone from our group. After that, everyone headed back to the hotel to hang out before bed. This trip has been a dream come true. There have been many times during this trip that I have talked with some of the girls and we discuss how lucky we are to have as much support as we have and been given an opportunity to broaden our horizons by experiencing another culture as beautiful as Brazil's. I will never forget this trip and how much fun I have been able to have with all my best friends ~ Katie Kabbes

May 21 The end of the trip has finally come! We all woke up sporadically on Thursday and had a pretty laid back morning. It was very overcast, so most of us headed into downtown to do some last minute personal shopping, gift buying, and getting rid of any Brazilian money we had left burning holes in our pockets. A few of us treated ourselves to manicures and pedicures, and Katie took the risk of getting her hair cut from someone who didn’t speak a word of English (but don’t worry, it turned out great). We met up for lunch at Boom, the same restaurant we ate lunch at our first afternoon in Buzios. The food (and more importantly the desserts) were just as fantastic as last time. After a quick lunch, we all headed back to the hotel to take a stab at packing all of our new and old belongings up one last time. It was tough, but just about all of us managed to shove our clothes and gifts into our suitcases (with the exception of Heather’s rain stick and Jess’s hammock). After stuffing everything into the bus, we started our bumpy trip back to Rio. For dinner, some of us experienced Bob’s Burgers for the first time, which is the burger chain created in Brazil by an American in the absence of McDonald’s back in the early 1900’s. At the gate, we parted with Nestor, our faithful tour guide. Nestor was a great addition to the trip as well, and we all appreciated his help and his insight into the Brazilian culture. There was plenty of time to kick back in the airport terminal while we awaited our flight. Once we boarded the plane, it was time to settle in and sleep our way back to the New York City. This was such an incredible experience for every one of us. I don’t think we can even begin to thank the Boosters and everyone who helped make all of this possible.Nothing can compare to the volleyball experience we got here and all the memorable times we had! ~ Megan Shifflett

2005 Tour of Italy & Slovenia May 10 Dobrodosli ("welcome") to the Penn State Volleyball European tour 2005! Today was our first full day here and we have already done so much! Staying in the scenic city of Izola, we are pretty immersed in Slovenian culture. It's been drizzling a bit but we are staying right on the harbor of the Adriatic coast in the Hotel Marina and it is absolutely gorgeous. The brightly-colored buildings, green mountains and crystal clear sea make everything seem sunny. There is not a whole lot of English spoken here, so we stick out a lil' bit. The people have been pretty nice for the most part though, and we've managed to learn a bit of Slovenian: please = "prosim", thank you = "hvala", how much = "koliko" and "bela kava brez koffeina" = decaff cafe latte... I've already used that one about 4 times. All the girls are having a great time. We practiced last night after we got in and then played our first match today against a club team from Croatia. They were pretty young so we won all 5 games easily. We travel to the capital city of LJubljana tomorrow to play another match and see the sites. We will leave early in the morning to tour the city and then play in the afternoon. Tim and Jo from BringItUSA have really planned out a great trip for us. All the girls are really excited and the parents and boosters are having a good time too... with a few exceptions. So far the Naylors lost their luggage and got locked out of their room, the Janias tried to use a $1USD in an Italian Coke machine and then got their debit card chopped up in Izola, and Mrs. Holm tried to play matchmaker with the manager of a Slovenian pizzeria (which would be alright if the service wasn't so sub-par). So, to sum up... everyone is over their jetlag, we're loving Slovenia, and can't wait to get some more competition under our belts as we continue to travel the world!! Ciao! Kim Holm and the Penn State Women's Volleyball team

May 11 Ciao! Greetings from Slovenia. We started off this morning with a European breakfast at The Hotel Marina and then headed off to spend the day in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Upon arrival, we went to the tourist information center and got brochures of the entire city followed by a train ride to the medieval Ljubljana Castle. The castle is a fine feature of the city and nowadays it is a popular tourist spot. After the train ride back into the city square, we split up for a day of site seeing and fun. Our next step was a bus ride to our match. We played five games against a team called Nova Gorica, winning four of the five games. The match was very lively with a few face shots and a lot of cheering. The owner of the gym we played in also owned a restaurant nearby and he invited us to enjoy his five course cuisine. The food and atmosphere was amazing and the team, coaches, parents, and boosters all had a fabulous time. Tomorrow we leave Slovenia and are off to Venice, Italy. Maggie Case

May 12 Today we finally woke up to the blue skies of Slovenia, only to say goodbye as we loaded the bus to continue on to Venice, Italy. After the bus ride we laced up our sneakers, stole the nearest "Vaporetto" (a motorboat used as a canal bus in Venice) and raced to the city - it was all Sam's idea! (Okay, so maybe the dramatic entrance is a slight exaggeration, but you know how girls can be.) After we docked near Piazza San Marco, the real adventures began. We had the entire day to absorb the city, and that we did. These are some of the interesting things I learned today: 1.) Imagine literally stepping into a world unlike anything you have ever seen. Imagine walking through massive crowds of people all speaking different languages. Now imagine seeing absolutely breathtaking architecture and scenery all around you. And finally, imagine 14 young American women (plus one Canadian) gracefully dodging hundreds of swooping pigeons while trying to take it all in at once. Thankfully, we all have cat-like reflexes and nobody was seriously injured. 2.) It's true what they say - Italian men really aren't afraid to sweep a woman off her feet! Maggie, Ashley Fidler, Melissa and I ate a delicious meal along the Grand Canal and as we were thanking the waiters and saying goodbye, the chef came from behind the counter, pinched my cheeks and picked me up in the middle of the restaurant! I am 6-5 ... he was probably 5-7 ... you do the math! Today marks the first time any man has dared to accomplish what he did. Sorprendente! (Amazing!) On a more serious note, today was a perfect example of why we are so thankful to be in Italy doing what we love, and we are thankful to be sharing it with some of the people who helped make it possible. We were all able to see Venice through our own eyes and learned a lot about the culture and history. We split up into different groups and spent the day shopping and exploring all the city has to offer. It was a beautiful day in Venice, but there is still work to be done! We left the sinking city behind and drove to Pordenone, where we will play the local team tomorrow night. Kim and Kaleena have been playing very well, so tomorrow will be a good opportunity for some new faces to step up and contribute! We will keep you posted, but until next time, there is volleyball to be played and more dessert to be eaten! CIAO! Cassy Salyer

2005 Tour of Italy & Slovenia

May 13 Boun Giorno fellow Americanos (Good morning fellow Americans!). We spent day 6 in Pordenone. After breakfast most of us enjoyed the downtown shopping of the city. This city was most like the cities that we are used to in the United States. There are more cars and traffic here then in the previous places we have been. Small boutiques lined the streets with an occasional department store. In the afternoon we ventured to the Villa Manin, which is a palace of the former Doge. The enormous structure and beautiful architecture were overwhelming. Unique art lined the walls of one of the sections of the castle, while other sections displayed old weaponry and carriages. The chapel was detailed in elegant artwork. We did not have the opportunity to view the actual rooms of the castle because of restoration, but we were told that Napoleon had slept there and that his room was preserved. From the castle we came back to the hotel to enjoy the traditional Italian pregame meal, which was actually breakfast. This included cereal, fruit, yogurt, and various pastries. On the way to the gym our tour guides indulged us with the translations of a local newspaper article that was about the team being in the town. The article was informative and contained a picture of us receiving our Big Ten trophy. The match was held at a nearby town owned gym. We won four out of the five games that we played against Pallavolo Pordenone in front of a very lively crowd. The match was the most the competitive one since we have been here and was fun to play in. After we played, we ate dinner (at 10:30 at night). It is custom to eat pasta as an appetizer, but we did not know this before so most of us ate it as a meal. Little did we know that we were also having meat, fries, salad, and dessert! It was a great ending to a wonderful day! Arrivederci (goodbye)!! Kaleena Walters & Tabitha Eshleman May 14 Ciao fellow Americans and Canadians, Well, our arrival into Pesaro came on our official graduation day, had we been in State College. So, as our final college project, here is our journal entry! On the bus yesterday, driving from Pordenone to Pesaro, we had to present our research on the Marche region to everyone on the bus, complete with our graduation caps! We are planning on spending 3 days total in this region, the first two in Pesaro, and the third in Comunanza. The region is pronounced "lay markay," and in English, it translates to "the Marches." The region lies on the eastern seaboard in central Italy, bordered by the Adriatic Sea to the east, and the Appenine mountains to the central part of the country. Pesaro is the capital city of this province, and is a bustling seaside resort town. Fortunately, we're here before most of the tourist season begins, so we've had the town all to ourselves! When we arrived to our beachfront hotel yesterday, we all ate lunch together, before we had a bit of down time last night. A few of us had the opportunity to accompany Coach Rose and Tim Kelly (in charge of our tour, he runs Bring It USA) to a professional women's volleyball match in a small town about 1.5 hours away from here. The gymnasium was full of enthusiastic and loud spectators, and it was a lot of fun! It was a match between the 2nd and 3rd place teams in the A2 division of the Italian professional league, with the winner of this match having the opportunity to move up to the A1 league next year. Wiz Bachman, former UCLA standout, was playing for the team that ended up losing in four games. Today we had some free time to take in the sites of Pesaro, which is the hometown of famed opera composer, Giaochino Rossini. This evening we had a chance to play our fourth match, against a team from Gabiche, Italy, about 15 minutes from Pesaro. We won the four games we played in the match, and every member of the team had a chance to play. Tomorrow we'll have a chance to go to an Italian Catholic mass if we want, before getting back on the road and heading over to Comunanza. From what we've heard so far, it's a small mountain town, about 3 blocks long and 1 block wide. We'll be there only one night, and the gentleman who runs the hotel/restaurant where we'll be staying is so excited to host all of us! People drive from miles around to eat at his restaurant, so we're looking forward to tasting the food for ourselves!! We have two matches left on this trip, one tomorrow night in Comunanza, and the last in Rome on Tuesday night. Buonas sera from Italy! Ashley Pederson & Syndie Nadeau

May 17 After winding through the Italian hillsides, our team arrived in the town of Comunanza. The town was small with a population of around 3,000 people. We stayed where executives generally stayed when they would visit the major factory just outside of the town. It was very nice place to stay as five of the girls got to stay in a 3-bedroom apartment that had two bathrooms and a dining room. Once we got settled in our rooms the team got on our jerseys and walked to the gym. We played a club team from Amandola. Their team was short a few players so Ashley Fidler volunteered to play with the other team. We won the match in 3 games, while Kris Brown and Kaleena even got a chance to play front row. That night we had what most of the team considered our best meal of the trip. It was a traditional Italian family meal with multiple courses and elaborate dishes. One of the first dishes we ate was intestine and eggs. It was a long meal the lasted late into the night. The next morning we were off to begin our long drive to Rome. We wove through the mountains and hills on roads that you wouldn't think buses could travel through. After nearly a five-hour trip we finally arrived in Rome, the 'eternal city.' We checked into the hotel and were immediately off to the Metro station just a few blocks away. The Metro is very small and crowded because the designers of the Metro wanted to avoid digging railways under ancient Roman architecture. Our first stop took us to see the Spanish Steps, which was a series of three levels of steps leading up to a church. The lining of the steps was covered in flowers and it was a great place to take a team picture. Our next stop was the Trevi Fountain. This was the first elaborate sculpture work we saw in Rome and we were in awe. It is said that you must throw a coin into the fountain but you must throw the coin with your back facing the fountain. The number of coins you throw also determines your fortune. One coin and you'll return to Rome, two coins and you'll fall in love. With our backs facing the fountain, Maggie, Cassy, Fidler, and I threw in two coins each. Our last stop of the day was to visit the Pantheon. As we walked inside we were amazed by the massive pillars holding the structure up. They lead us into a large circular dome with more sculptures and a roof with a giant circular hole allowing sunlight to pour inside. The basement of the building is also a resting place for people such as Raffaello a famous painter, Voltaire a philosopher, Murrie and Piere Currie both famous scientists as well as Victor Hugo the first president of unified Italy. After seeing the Pantheon we were all tired and grabbed some dinner, found the Metro and went back to our hotel. Today (Tuesday, May 17th) we got up and again took the Metro to see the Coliseum. I stepped out of the station and all I could see was the building. The structure was built between 12AD and 80AD and most of it still remains standing today. When it was first built it was called the Amphitheatre Flavium, and held up to 50,000 people. It was used to hold battles between animals and humans along with chariot races and mock naval battles.. The rest of the day we were able to tour around and explore the city of Rome. Other sites we saw included the Forum, the Arch of Constantine, and the Monument of Vittoriale. All of the sites were unique and amazing in their own respect. It was odd to see such monuments scattered amongst current shops and restaurants including McDonalds. Tonight we played our 6th and final match in a town of Usaro, which is thirty minutes to an hour away from Rome depending on traffic. We played one of our more competitive matches against a club team called As Fidia Ladispoli. We won all five games although it was a bittersweet victory. It was the last time our three seniors; Tab, Syndie and Ashley would play in their PSU uniforms. The club team had ordered pizza for us and we shared it with them before getting on the bus and heading back to Rome. Tomorrow is our last full day. We are going to see the Vatican City in the morning and the Pope may be speaking. The trip is almost over and it is going very fast but I'm very excited to get up tomorrow and see the Sistine Chapel.

Director of Athletics Tim Curley

Well into his second decade as the architect of the Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics program, Tim Curley’s dynamic and passionate leadership has been the driving force behind the Nittany Lions’ tremendous level of athletic and academic achievement. Named Director of Athletics on December 30, 1993, Curley’s leadership has positioned Penn State among the nation’s premier athletic departments. During the Nittany Lions’ 17 full years as members of the Big Ten Conference, Penn State has captured 19 NCAA Championships, more than double the next closest Big Ten schools. Curley has seen Nittany Lion squads win 61 Big Ten titles and numerous individual national and conference crowns during his 16-plus years directing Penn State’s comprehensive and nationally-respected athletic program. The Lions have won eight NCAA Championships since March 2007. During the 2009 fall semester, the women’s volleyball team won an unprecedented third consecutive NCAA Championship, rallying from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Texas, 3-2, in an epic title match. Penn State won its seventh consecutive outright Big Ten crown and extended its winning streak to 102 matches, the second-longest streak by any team in NCAA Division I history. The football team won 11 games for the 15th time under Joe Paterno and won its fourth bowl game in the past five years. The women’s soccer team captured its 12th consecutive Big Ten Championship, tying the longest string of Big Ten women’s titles all-time in any sport. The women’s cross country team won the 2009 Big Ten title, the program’s first, and the women’s indoor track and field team captured the 2010 crown. In the spring of 2010, the fencing team won its 10th NCAA Championship under Curley’s watch. The women’s track and field team captured its third consecutive Big Ten outdoor title, for the “Triple Crown,” giving Penn State five league titles in 2009-10. Nineteen squads were represented in their respective NCAA Championships or a bowl game in 2009-10. Include the 44 All-Americans and 40 first-team All-Big Ten selections (48 total first-team all-conference honorees), a recordtying student-athlete Graduation Success Rate of 89 percent and 10 Academic All-Americans and 2009-10 was another tremendous year of Success With Honor for the Nittany Lions. A 1976 Penn State graduate, Curley’s dedicated and enthusiastic leadership has helped Penn State capture 24 Big Ten championships or tournament titles the past five years, the second-highest total in the conference. In 2008-09, the women’s volleyball team captured its second consecutive NCAA title, earning a 38-0 record, and its sixth consecutive outright Big Ten Championship. The football team won its second conference title in four years and played in the 2009 Rose Bowl. The Nittany Lion basketball team won its first National Invitation Tournament championship, posting a program-record 27 victories, and the fencing team won another NCAA Championship. In 2007-08, Penn State became just the second school in NCAA history to have both volleyball teams win the national championship in the same academic year. During the fall 2005 semester, Penn State won an unprecedented five Big Ten Championships - in field hockey, football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball — becoming the first institution to win more than three titles in the fall season in Big Ten history. Nittany Lion teams compiled an incredible 49-1 record against Big Ten competition in the fall.

In June 2009, Curley again was recognized for his efforts in helping Penn State maintain its stature as one of the nation’s premier athletic programs with his selection as the Northeast Athletic Director-of-the-Year by NACDA. He was one of just four regional Division I-A honorees and also earned it in 2003. As he surveys the athletic program he has been instrumental in assembling over the past 34 years, Tim Curley can’t help but be proud of the athletic and academic accomplishments of Penn State’s 750 student-athletes in 29 varsity sports: • During a visit to the University Park campus, late NCAA President Myles Brand stated, “Penn State is the poster child for doing it right in college sports.” • In the initial 17 years of the NACDA Directors’ Cup allsports survey, Penn State has finished in the Top 25 every year, earning seven Top 10 finishes, with 12 placings in the Top 15. The Lions finished No. 11 in 2009-10 and are one of only 10 programs nationwide to have finished in the Top 25 every year. • In the most recent comprehensive look at the 117 colleges and universities participating in Division I football and men’s basketball, U.S. News and World Report selected Penn State as one of 10 Division I-A institutions for its College Sports Honor Roll. Data on gender equity, number of varsity sports, graduation rates, sanctions, and wins and losses were analyzed to determine the listing. • Penn State has captured 19 NCAA Championships in men’s and women’s volleyball; men’s and women’s fencing and men’s gymnastics during Curley’s tenure. Nittany and Lady Lion teams have made 31 NCAA “Final Four” appearances during his tenure. • Penn State also has established itself as a force in the highly competitive Big Ten - winning 65 regular-season or tournament titles in football, baseball, women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s gymnastics, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s & women’s swimming & diving, women’s indoor & outdoor track & field and cross country, and women’s volleyball. The Lions won a schoolrecord six titles in 2005-06, a mark they matched in 2008-09. • In November 2009, the NCAA reported that Penn State student-athletes earned a school-record tying 89 percent Graduation Success Rate, 10 points higher than the national Division I-A average. Twenty-three of Penn State’s 25 teams compiled a GSR at or above the national average of 79 percent or higher (track and field and cross country count as one sport). Twenty-one Penn State squads earned a GSR higher than the national average for their sport, according to the NCAA. The NCAA also reported in 2009 that Penn State student-athletes registered a four-year federal graduation rate of 82 percent, significantly above the 63 percent national average. Penn State’s GSR and four-year federal graduation rates were second-highest in the Big Ten to Northwestern. • The 2009 NCAA report also showed that Penn State’s African-American student-athletes earned a four-year federal 78 percent graduation rate, 25 points higher than the 53 percent Division I national average. Of the Penn State student-athletes in the NCAA studies from 1993-94 through 2002-03 who exhausted their eligibility, 96 percent left with their diplomas. • In June 2010, the NCAA reported that 12 Penn State teams earned a perfect Academic Progress Rate score of 1,000 in 200809 and that 24 teams had a four-year APR score at or above the Division I average for their respective sport. • During the 2009 fall semester, 189 Penn State student-athletes compiled a 3.50 grade-point average or higher to gain Dean’s List recognition (minimum of 12 credits). A total of 415 studentathletes earned a GPA of 3.0 or above, representing 58 percent of active student-athletes during the fall semester. • In 2009-10, 235 Penn State student-athletes received Academic All-Big Ten honors. Over the past 16 years, Penn State leads all Big Ten institutions with 3,547 all-academic honorees. • A total of 10 student-athletes earned ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America accolades in 2009-10 on the heels of a school-record 11 the year prior. Penn State has 160 such selections all-time, with 112 in the last 16-plus years under Curley’s leadership, a figure higher than any other Big Ten school’s all-time total, since the program began in 1952. To continue to give the coaching staff and student-athletes the resources to succeed academically and athletically, Curley has guided the most ambitious fund-raising and athletics facilities campaigns in the department’s history. The “For The Future” Campaign entered the public phase in April 2010 and will conclude in 2014. More than $128 million was raised for Intercollegiate Athletics through June 2008 to easily surpass the Success With Honor Campaign goal of $100 million.

The Athletics physical plant has improved substantially under Curley’s watch. The Nittany Lion Softball Park, golf clubhouse, soccer practice fields and men’s and women’s basketball offices are among projects recently completed or under construction. The most recently completed capital project was a new baseball stadium — Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The Penn State baseball team shares the state-of-the-art facility with a short-season minor league team — the State College Spikes. Curley played a significant role in developing the unique partnership for the construction of the 5,406-seat stadium, which opened in June 2006. The 12,500-seat expansion and renovation of Beaver Stadium was completed in 2001, raising the capacity to 107,282. The project included private suite and club level seating previously unavailable and creation of the Penn State All-Sports Museum to house the University’s impressive collection of sports memorabilia. Other facility projects completed in the past decade include the Lasch Football Building, Ashenfelter Indoor Multi-Sport Facility and Sarni Tennis Center and renovations to the White Building, East Area Locker Room, Jeffrey Field and a field hockey facility. Curley also oversees the expansive intramural/club sport programs — which included a fourth consecutive national championship in men’s ice hockey in 2003 and women’s rugby national titles in 2004, ‘09 and ‘10 — on the University Park campus, as well as general recreational activities. He’s charged as well with responsibility for the athletic and recreational programs at Penn State’s Commonwealth Campuses. It is a dizzying pace for Curley, who is a regular presence at athletic events, team banquets, alumni meetings and regional and national meetings of athletic administrators. Curley served as president of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) in 2005-06. He was the first Penn State Athletic Director to serve as president of NACDA, which is a professional and educational association for more than 6,100 athletic administrators at more than 1,600 institutions in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Elected a NACDA officer in 2002, Curley is a recent member of the NCAA Committee on Academic Performance (CAP) and the Board of Directors of the Honda Collegiate Women Sports Awards. He also is on the Boards of Visitors for Penn State’s John Curley Center for Sports Journalism and the advisory board for the Center for Sports Business and Research in The Smeal College of Business. Curley also was appointed to a special NCAA task force that reviewed Division I recruiting bylaws and to the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee, a group which he chaired. He previously was a member of the NCAA Division I Championships/ Competition Cabinet and served as chair of the NCAA Postseason Bowl Certification Sub-Committee. It is no exaggeration to say Tim Curley is someone who knows the Penn State athletic program from the ground up. A State College product, he grew up across the street from New Beaver Field where some of his most memorable days as a youngster were spent there and in Rec Hall. He parked cars, sold game programs and served as a baseball batboy. The top assistant to Athletic Director Jim Tarman, Curley was named Director of Athletics on December 30, 1993, when Tarman retired after 35 years as a Penn State athletic administrator. Curley, 56, has been a full-time member of the athletic staff since he joined the department as a graduate assistant football coach. A product of State College Area High School where he played basketball and football for Jim Williams’ undefeated 1971 team, Curley walked on as a football player only to have his career cut short by injuries. After earning his bachelor’s degree in health and physical education in 1976, he was a graduate assistant coach while pursuing his master’s degree in counselor education. Curley was named the Lions’ first full-time football recruiting coordinator in 1978 and was instrumental in identifying and recruiting a number of members of the 1982 national championship team. In 1981, he was named assistant to the athletic director where he was involved with the day-to-day operations of the department. Curley was active in the development of the Academic Support Center for Student-Athletes; the Penn State Sports Medicine Center; the Varsity “S” Club and the Football Letterman’s Club during his tenure as assistant to the athletic director. He also was instrumental in putting in place Penn State’s first NCAA compliance program and acted as the department’s compliance coordinator for five years before surrendering those responsibilities when he was named Associate Athletic Director in 1992. He is married to the former Melinda Harr of Washington, Pa., who earned degrees from Penn State in 1977 and 1986. The Curleys have two children — a daughter, Devon, and a son, Tanner.

The University Since admitting its first students in 1859, Penn State has awarded some 642,000 degrees whose value is recognized worldwide. That value reflects an educational experience second to none in quality and richness. In addition, Penn State alumni — there are more than 285,000 in Pennsylvania alone — have job- and social-networking opportunities that no other college or university in the Commonwealth can surpass. The University’s beginnings were humble. Chartered as a college of scientific agriculture, the institution was located in rural Centre County after James Irvin, a partner in the Centre Furnace iron works (remains of which can be seen today along East College Avenue), agreed to donate 200 acres of farmland for a campus. Founding President Evan Pugh wanted Penn State to embody a new approach to higher education that blended traditional studies with subjects that had practical value. He joined similar visionaries in other states in convincing Congress to pass the Morrill Land-Grant Act in 1862. The act gave individual states tracts of federal land to sell; the proceeds would support colleges that agreed to include engineering, science, and the liberal arts as well as agriculture in their course of studies. In 1863, the Pennsylvania legislature designated Penn State the Commonwealth’s sole land-grant institution, thus bestowing on the privately incorporated college a wide range of public functions and obligations that continue to this day.

Initial efforts to diversify the curriculum met with mixed success, but by the 1890s Penn State was making its mark. It ranked among the nation’s 10 largest undergraduate engineering schools, a distinction it still holds. President George Atherton invigorated the liberal arts, and recruited Professor of English Fred Pattee to teach the nation’s first course in American literature, heretofore considered an unworthy stepchild of English literature. Professor of Agriculture Whitman Jordan’s pioneering research on using fertilizers for soil enrichment had global impact on crop yields. Penn State in 1871 became one of the first land-grant schools in the Northeast to admit women, graduated its first international student in 1890, and its first African-American student in 1905. In the early 1900s, Penn State launched an extensive system of outreach education, “carrying the college to the people,” as then-President Edwin Sparks liked to say. It established the nation’s first collegiate-level correspondence courses in agriculture, and in 1912 helped create a statewide system of county agents in agriculture and home economics. Today’s Penn State World Campus, with its “anywhere, anytime” learning through the Internet, is descended from that strong outreach tradition. But undergraduate education remained foremost. As enrollment surpassed 5,000 students in 1936, Penn State became Pennsylvania’s largest source of baccalaureate degrees. Also in the 1930s, a statewide system of undergraduate centers was created for

170 PENN STATE 2010-2011 WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

students who, in the depths of the Great Depression, could not afford to leave their hometowns to get a college education. The centers offered the first year of baccalaureate studies and were the predecessors of today’s system of 19 primarily undergraduate campuses located throughout the Commonwealth. Following the Second World War, Penn State underwent unprecedented expansion, first to meet the needs of returning military veterans and later to accommodate the Baby Boom generation. Total enrollment at all Penn State campuses climbed to 40,000 by 1970. The University also emerged on the national scene as a research powerhouse. Research — a landgrant obligation — first garnered international attention in fields as diverse as dairy science, acoustics, psychology, and petroleum refining. As worldrenowned faculty encouraged greater student participation in research and creative activities, Penn State was able to provide an enriched undergraduate experience unavailable at the state-owned universities. Annual research expenditures now exceed $765 million and help to make Penn State the largest single non-governmental contributor to Pennsylvania’s economy. The University generates about $8.5 billion in total economic impact each year.
