The freshman finished with a team-high 12 kills on a .455 attack percentage as the No. 1 seed Penn State swept the No. 4 seed Saint Francis 25-16, 25-22, 25-20 in the EIVA Tournament semifinals on Thursday in University Park, Pennsylvania.
The Nittany Lions out-hit the Red Flash .390 to .224, including having more than a .400 attack percentage in each of the first two games.
Penn State also had two players finish with double-digit kills. Along with Kowal, outside attacker Brett Wildman added 10 kills while hitting .348.
