"Tonight we had a great, competitive match against a very good opponent," said Penn State head coach Russ Rose. "I wanted our team to play hard and smart and do things together, and I think we did that tonight. [Texas freshman] Destinee [Hooker] is a world-class athlete and [Texas freshman] Ashley Engle and [Penn State freshman] Megan Hodge played with so much poise and awareness for the type of match, it was impressive."
