Women's Volleyball: AVCA Ranks Penn State Second In Preseason Poll

New, 11 comments

They're one of four Big Ten teams in the top ten.

Coach Russ Rose will start his 35th season as Penn State women's volleyball head coach at #2 in the polls as the AVCA poll was released today with the ladies looking up at only Texas in the preseason rankings. Out of 60 first-place votes, the Lady Longhorns received 55 of them while the Lady Lions picked up another three. Third-ranked Stanford had the remaining two to their credit.

Penn State is joined in the top ten by Big Ten foes Minnesota (sixth), Michigan (seventh) and Nebraska (tenth). They return All-Americans Micha Hancock, Ariel Scott, Katie Slay and Deja McClendon in 2013 as they look to capture their sixth national title after falling to Oregon in the national semifinals last year.
