The Penn State Behrend women's varsity vol
leyball team have been on a rollercoaster ride and
seem to be at the peak as they look to add more
victories to their record.
The team tallied two crucial wins over the
weekend, but left the Junker Center in shock on
Tuesday as Fredonia swept them three games to
zero. The Lions then went back on the winning
track as they defeated Hilbert on Wednesday.
The varsity women's volleyball team sits with an
overall record of 12-6 and a AMCC conference
record of 2-0.
This past weekend, the team went 2-0 on their
home court as they defeated La Roche and Thiel.
Despite the two victories. Head Coach Phil Pisano
felt as if they could have played better in their first
conference game of the year against La Roche.
"We played better against the better team which
was Thiel." explained Pisano. "I was pretty disap
pointed with the performance against La Roche. I
feh like we played a few notches below what we
are capable of. I was pleasantly surprised that we
turned it around quickly against Thiel. Going into
the Fredonia game, we felt confident that we
could play with them."
According to Pisano, junior Sheila Ogden
played well on Saturday. Ogden was named
AMCC player of the week for the week of
September 29th. According to the Behrend web
site. Ogden leads the Behrend Lions this season in
several categories including kills (186). hitting
percentage (.255), and total blocks (51) as of the

and grit for the Behrend team, scoring three and

fell, with a final score of 15-9.
Their next game, scheduled only four hours after
the start of the Mercyhurst match, was looming
large as the men prepared for the next battle.
Behrend sophomore Keith Yaegal lead the Lions in
scoring in an exciting 9-4 victory over Salem.
