Nugent earns EIVA honor

From CDT staff reports

Penn State’s Chris Nugent was named Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Offensive Player of the Week on Monday.

The junior outside hitter posted 10 kills on .300 hitting in a 3-0 loss to No. 2 Ohio State on Tuesday, 10 kills on .304 hitting in a 3-0 win over Harvard on Friday, and a career-high 21 kills on .645 hitting in a 3-1 victory against Sacred Heart on Saturday.

The honors are the fourth of the season for Nugent.

The weekend wins locked up the EIVA regular-season title for the 18th straight season for the No. 9 Nittany Lions (18-8), giving them the No. 1 seed for the conference tournament.
