CHICAGO – Penn State has a history of success in men’s volleyball, and Zack Parik was part of the most recent solid run by the Nittany Lions.

The Woodridge native, Downers Grove North graduate and PSU sophomore was part of the team that went 13-1 and won the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association and advanced to the NCAA semifinals this season.

The Nittany Lions defeated Lewis on April 29 in an NCAA finals play-in match at Loyola University’s Gentile Center before losing to eventual champion Loyola in a semifinal on Thursday.

For the season, Parik played in 30 matches and finished the season with 84 assists, good for second on the team. He also put nearly 91 percent of his serves for the season in play.

Penn State finished the season with a 25-7 record.
