Penn State volleyball
Won 109 consecutive matches.
On Sept. 15, 2007, Penn State lost a tough five-set match to Stanford. The Cardinal must have had the Nittany Lions' number, because they beat them again
in September 2010. In between, PSU went 1,092 days and 109 matches without a loss. It's the longest streak in NCAA women's volleyball history, more than double the next best (52 in a row for USC). The Lions won three straight NCAA titles during their run, then added a record fourth in 2010. But history can be daunting when you're making it. "There was no
time to be proud and reflect," says Megan Hodge,
a two-time Big Ten Player of the Year (shown here spiking). "When I look back, it was really amazing.
But at the time, it was just, 'We have to win.'" And so they did -- match after match after match.
