Men’s VolleyballPenn College took all 12 games during four matches over the weekend, but it was the final game, against Harrisburg Area Community College, that pleased coach Wes Strayer the most. Down game-point at 20-24, the Wildcats rallied behind the serving of Matt Staub (Millersville) to pull out a 29-27 victory.

“It was wonderful,” Strayer said. Commenting on the overall weekend play, the coach said, “They actually started playing some defense. They really stepped up on defense and blocking.”
