The Badger women’s volleyball team (1-3 Big Ten, 13-4 overall) hosted No. 1 Penn State (4-0 Big Ten, 14-1 overall) Friday night in what was sure to be one of its toughest matches of the season. Unfortunately for Wisconsin, it ended with a three-set sweep by the Nittney Lions (25-19, 25-21, 25-7).

A strong performance in Wisconsin volleyball’s (8-1 overall) nine-set, three-game sweep at this weekend’s InnTowner Invitational brought more than just a team crown for senior middle blocker Mary Ording. The Carmel, Ind., native was named the Big Ten’s defensive player of the week Monday after accumulating 13 blocks over the weekend.
The Badger women’s volleyball team (8-1 overall) kicked off their 2012 season at home this weekend with wins in nine straight sets en route to the Inn Towner Invitational title at the UW Fieldhouse. After sweeping Drake on Friday and overcoming an early first set deficit Saturday against North Dakota State, Wisconsin took the momentum early in the championship game against Milwaukee, and held on to win 25-15, 26-24, 25-23.
The Wisconsin volleyball team (5-1 overall) will return to the UW Field House this weekend for the 21st annual InnTowner Invitational.
