Getting her wish

In the press conference following her team's loss to Penn State in the 2008 NCAA Division I volleyball tournament, Yale coach Erin Appleman said she was hoping the Lady Lions would win it all so she could say the Bulldogs lost to the champs.

Well, Penn State did their part, outlasting Stanford in an entertaining three-set match to win its second straight national title and extend their NCAA record winning streak to 64 matches. How dominant were the Lady Lions? Well, they lost two sets the entire season and those came against Nebraska in the semifinals.

An interesting piece of trivia is that Penn State's last loss came on Yale's home court against Stanford in the 2007 season.
