HANOVER, N.H. — The Dartmouth volleyball team returns home to face Penn and Princeton at Leede Arena this weekend. The Big Green will take on the Quakers Friday night at 7 p.m., followed by the Tigers Saturday at 5 p.m.

As an added bonus before Saturday's match, three-time Olympic volleyball player Lindsey Berg will sign autographs beginning at 4 p.m. in Leede Arena. Berg, the sister of Dartmouth head coach Erin Lindsey, is a two-time Olympic silver medalist and captain of the USA Volleyball team.

Last weekend, Dartmouth kicked off the Ivy season, playing its home opener against Harvard Friday night. The Big Green defeated the Crimson in an exciting five-set match to jump out to a 1-0 start in Ivy League play.

Facing Penn for the 33rd time in school history, Dartmouth is 7-25 all-time against the Quakers. The visitors have taken the last 11 matchups, including last year's meeting, a 3-0 Penn win in Hanover.

The Big Green has had a rough time against Princeton as well, trailing 6-26 in the all-time series. Dartmouth did win the last meeting, however, 3-1 at home, and has won two of the last three matches.

Sophomore Alex Schoenberger leads the team with 105 kills, while freshman Paige Caridi follows with 101. Rookie Kayden Cook has 297 assists on the year to lead the squad. Sophomore Holly Harper is tops in digs (119) while Caridi is next with 96. Junior Elisa Scudder has a team-best 34 blocks and .327 hitting percentage.
