Penn State’s Haleigh Washington was named the Big Ten’s co-Player of the Week on Monday.
The sophomore middle blocker hit .525 last week with 25 kills and eight blocks in a five-set win against No. 23 Michigan and a three-set victory over Michigan State. She had a career-high 17 kills on .593 hitting with just one error in the win over the Wolverines, adding two aces and five blocks. She had eight kills and three blocks against the Spartans.
The No. 3 Nittany Lions will tangle with No. 11 Ohio State twice this week, visiting Columbus on Wednesday and hosting the Buckeyes on Friday at Rec Hall.
