🎓🏐🥍College: After a hard-fought 3–1 loss in the Sweet Sixteen to the Texas Longhorns yesterday, the Penn State women’s volleyball team’s dreams of a national championship are over. Though the Nittany Lions came out firing and took the first set, Texas’ height and offensive power outlasted Penn State’s scrappy defense. 

  • Meanwhile, on the field, Penn State men’s lacrosse star Mac O’Keefe broke the NCAA all-time goals scored record when he drilled his 213th goal into the back of the Michigan Wolverines' net on Saturday. WE ARE the best to ever do it. 

⚾️Baseball: The Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2–0 yesterday, closing out their weekend series 2-1. Pitcher Aaron Nola held the mound for all nine innings, allowing only two hits in his first complete game. Love to see it. 

⚽️Union: Despite threatening to score many times throughout the match, the Union’s MLS opener ended in a scoreless draw against Columbus Crew FC yesterday. Playing the defending MLS Cup champions so close and keeping them off the score sheet is a great start to the season.
