MIDDLEBURY, Vt. - Plymouth State College's volleyball team wrapped up the regular season on a positive note Saturday, winning two of three matches at the Middlebury Invitational.
After dropping the opening match of the day to the host Panthers of Middlebury, 3-1, PSC captured the final two contests over Keene State and St. Lawence, both by 3-0 scores. Plymouth State concludes the regular season with a 21-11 overall record, including victories in eight of the last 10 matches.
The usual suspects led the Panthers for the day. Sophomore Carin LaValley (Northfield, NH) registered "double-doubles" in all three matches, reaching double figures in both kills and digs. She finished the day with 40 kills and 32 digs. Freshman Becky Landry (Nashua, NH) contributed 29 kills, 18 digs and eight blocks, and classmate Bryce Budzinsky (Killingworth, Conn.) chipped in with 34 kills.
The Panthers, who tied for second in the Little East Conference with a 5-2 mark, received the third seed in this week's LEC Tournament. The Panthers will host sixth-seeded Keene State Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Foley Gymnasium. The winner advances to the LEC semifinals and final on Saturday and Sunday, hosted by top-seeded Western Connecticut.
