  • UNIVERSITY PARK, PA – The Rutgers volleyball team (0-1) dropped its first contest of the season, losing to No. 8 Penn State 30-24, 30-25, 30-18 at the Penn State Invitational on Sept. 3.

    Sophomore Lora Yankauskas (Paramus, NJ), led the Scarlet Knights with 13 kills, which tied for the match high. Junior Courtney Stout (San Marcos, CA) led the team with a match-high 12 digs, while senior Dawn Christjaener (Huntington Beach, CA) chipped in with 10. Senior Addie Thiry (Louisville, KY) finished with a match-high six block assists and senior Abbey Martin (Topeka, KS) had a team-high 35 assists.

    “We challenged them the first two games but we need to be more efficient,” said head coach Ann Leonard-House. “We had several hitting and blocking errors that cost us a significant number of points.”

    The Scarlet Knights finish play at the Penn State Invitational on Sept. 4, when they face BYU at 1:00 p.m. and Quinnipiac at 4:00 p.m.
