You want a piece of this? I didn't think so.

Our Nittany Lion of the week is mens volleyball senior middle hitter Max Holt, who led Penn State to three thrilling victories in the Outrigger Invitational in Honoulu, Hawaii this past week.

In the first match Penn State outlasted the #7 ranked USC Trojans in five games. For the match Holt had five blocks to go with his five kills and 0.250 kill percentage. He also blasted a career high and rally-scoring school record seven service aces.

In the second match Holt recorded six kills (0.250 %) as Penn State quickly swept #10 ranked Ohio State in three games. Holt really stepped up in the third game with three services aces, two key blocks, and the final kill to end the match.

In the final against #13 Hawaii, Holt registered 11 kills on an errorless 12 swings for an amazing 0.917 hit percentage. Penn State defeated Hawaii in four games and claimed the tournament crown for the second straight year.

His performance earned Holt All-Tournament honors along with teammates Max Lipsitz, Edgardo Goas, and Del Valle.
