PSU Women’s Volleyball sinks Salem State

SALEM, Mass. - Senior Becky Ciulla (Chelmsford, Mass.) recorded 10 kills as Plymouth State University coasted to a three-game sweep (30-15, 30-25, 30-28) over Salem State College Tuesday evening in a non-conference women's volleyball match.

The Panthers got back on the winning track, improving to 19-13 overall, while Salem State dropped its fifth straight and fell to 3-16. PSU has not lost to the Vikings in eight career meetings.

Ciulla added two service aces and 17 digs to her performance. The Panthers also got six kills apiece from senior Kelly Landry (Nashua, N.H.) and freshman Lauren Verge (Somersworth, N.H.). Sophomore libero Kim Tobyne (Bedford, N.H./West) led PSU with 24 digs, and freshman Sarah Spears (Meredith, N.H.) made 14 digs.

PSU wraps up the regular season this weekend at the Brandeis Tournament in Waltham, Mass. The Panthers, who are Little East Conference regular season co-champions with Eastern Connecticut, have earned a bye in the first round of next week's LEC Tournament. PSU advances to the semifinals, which are slated for Friday, Nov. 4, at ECSU.
