The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports that the Penn State Nittany Lions, led by 1st All American and Leland graduate Alisha Glass (Alisha Glass’s page at Penn State) have not lost a single set this season, let alone a match.
The Lions have won 109 consecutive sets, breaking the 105-set streak by Florida in 2003. Penn State also has won 62 consecutive matches, another NCAA record.
“It appears as though we have some history happening this year with Penn State and that we’re all chasing them,” Stanford coach John Dunning said. “We’re all in a hunt chasing down the lion.”
If they manage to continue this run through Thursday night’s national semifinal vs No. 4 Nebraska (31-2) and the winner of No. 2 Stanford (30-3) who Penn State defeated for the 2007 national title or No. 3 Texas (29-3), they will cap the best season in college volleyball history.
They face Nebraska tonight at at 9 PM on ESPN 2 and the final is Saturday night (Dec 20) at 8 PM on ESPN 2 as well.
