In Men's Volleyball, of course.

They made it interesting though, dropping the first game against #2 seed Pepperdine.

In that game, the Lions started out sharp, running up a big lead - but then the Waves (of Pepperdine) fought back to even and eventually took the game, 30 -27.

The next 2 games were incredibly tense, and close. But Penn State held on (and clawed back) to win them both (33-31 and 30-25 \ game 3 was much closer than that score).

And then, in a game they led throughout, they won it all with a 30-23 victory in game 4.

This was only the 3rd time, all season, that PSU had lost game 1 of a match (they finished the season 2-1 in such a circumstance).

Penn State Men's Volleyball claims the 2nd National Championship in the program's history (previous championship was won in 1994).

Matt Anderson, not surprisingly, was named the Tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

Penn State is just the second school to ever win the Men's and Ladies' championship in the same school year.
