LEC Honors again for Landry and LaValley

PLYMOUTH, N.H.- Two members of the Plymouth State College women's volleyball team were honored this week by the Little East Conference after leading the Panthers to a 3-2 week, including two wins last weekend at the Middlebury Invitational last week.

Freshmen Becky Landry (Nashua, NH) was selected Rookie of the Week by the LEC, and sophomore Carin LaValley (Northfield, NH) was named to the Weekly Honor Roll. This marks the fourth time this year that LaValley has been honored by the LEC, while Landry has been selected four times as Rookie of the Week.

The two were instrumental in helping the Panthers to a 3-2 week, posting victories against Salem State, Keene State, and St. Lawrence.

A 5'5" outside hitter, LaValley posted double-doubles in all three matches at the Middlebury Invitational, reaching double figures in both kills and digs. She totaled 58 kills, 47 digs, and five service aces while registering a .310 attack percentage. LaValley leads the LEC with 3.24 kills per game and a .263 percentage, recording 356 kills in 836 total attempts for the year.

A 5'8" middle hitter, Landry totaled 48 kills, 22 digs and 10 blocks for the week. She averages a .311 attack percentage. Landry is second in the LEC to LaValley in total kills for the season, averaging 2.86 kills/game.

The Panthers, 21-11 overall, tied for second in the LEC with a 5-2 record and received the third seed to kick off the LEC Tournament this week. The Panthers will host sixth-seeded Keene State Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Foley Gymnasium. The winner will advance to the LEC semifinals and final on Saturday and Sunday, hosted by the top-seeded Western Connecticut.
