UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Coastal Carolina volleyball team fell 3-0 (25-17, 25-13, 25-13) to the nationally-ranked No. 11 Penn State Nittany Lions in the finale of the Penn State Classic in University Park, Pa., on Saturday evening. With the loss, the Chanticleers dropped to 8-5 on the year, while Penn State stayed perfect at 11-0 with the win.
 
Coastal’s Paulina Perez Rosas led both teams with 15 kills on the day, while Jasmine Rivest added four kills for the Chants. Setter Brigitta Petrenko tallied 23 assists of the Chanticleers’ 26 team assists.
 
Defensive specialist Lina Perugini finished with nine digs as Perez Rosas chipped in with six digs. Middle hitter Nyla Shepherd led CCU with three blocks, while Petrenko stopped two at the net in the match.
 
In the opening set, the two teams traded a pair of points just before the Chants rallied with a 3-0 run to take a 5-4 lead over the No. 11 Nittany Lions on spikes by Rivest and Perez Rosas. CCU took its largest lead of the match at 7-5 on back-to-back kills by Perez Rosas and at 11-9 on a point by Perugini and a second Rivest spike. However, PSU scored five unanswered points for the 14-11 lead to force the Chants to call their first timeout of the set.
 
Coming out of the timeout, CCU’s Rivest stopped the run with her third kill of the match coming out of the timeout to pull the Chanticleers to within two at 14-12. The Nittany Lions used a 7-2 burst to take a 21-14 advantage and forced Coastal into its final timeout of the set. The Chants pulled to within five at 22-17 on kills by Shepherd and Petrenko just before Penn State scored the final three points for the 25-17 set-one win.
 
The Nittany Lions capitalized on five Chanticleer mistakes to take a 6-1 advantage early in the second set before CCU’s Perez Rosas cut the lead in half on back-to-back kills. Coastal closed to within three points at 8-5 with a third-straight Perez Rosas kill right before Penn State used a 12-2 surge to take command of the second set at 20-7. The two teams traded points back-and-forth with PSU claiming the 25-13 set-two win and a 2-0 match advantage.
 
The Chanticleers jumped out to the 2-0 lead in the third and final set on Petrenko’s second kill of the night, followed by a rare miscue by the Nittany Lions. Penn State raced back with a 3-0 and 5-0 run to sandwich a spike by Alicia Salgado and a pair of kills by Perez Rosas to take a 10-5 lead. After trading three-straight points, the Chanticleers found themselves on the wrong side of a 10-2 surge to trail 21-9.
 
Refusing to go away, Coastal tried to rally with a pair of points highlighted by a Salgado service ace to cut into the PSU lead at 21-11. The two squads traded points before Penn State scored the final two points on back-to-back Nittany Lion kills for the 25-13 set-win and the match sweep.
 
Coastal Carolina will return to action on Friday, Sept. 23, at 6 p.m. ET, as the Chanticleers will open Sun Belt Conference action at the HTC Center in Conway, S.C., versus the Georgia State Panthers.
