STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- The Juniata College men's volleyball team opened EIVA Tait Division play on Wednesday with their toughest test of the season - a road match against defending NCAA national champion Penn State.

Juniata hit just .063 against the Nittany Lions, and dropped a 3-0 decision to Penn State at Recreation Hall in State College, Pa. Set scores were 30-14,30-12, and 30-27.

Zach Wanner (Lancaster, Pa./Hempfield), Evan Halteman (Perkiomenville, Pa./Christopher Dock) and Dan Powers (Lancaster, Pa./Manheim Township) each had six kills for the Eagles (1-2, 0-1 EIVA Tait), while Chris Vrooman (Baden, Pa./Ambridge Area) logged five kills.

Matt Werle (Meadville, Pa./Meadville) set 23 assists for the Juniata offense, while Anthony Damiano (Lititz, Pa./Manheim Township) had six digs.

The Nittany Lions were paced by Joe Sunder with nine kills, and Max Lipsitz with four total blocks.
