PSU Volleyball splits two matches at Days Inn Tournament

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Plymouth State University split a pair on matches Saturday at the annual Days Inn of Campton Women's Volleyball Tournament, defeating Lasell College in a consolation contest after being defeated by Emerson College in the semifinals.

            Emerson went on to capture the tournament title with a five-set victory over UMass Boston in the championship match.  PSU lost to Emerson in straight sets in the semifinals, 25-22, 27-25, 25-21, but came back with a straight-set victory over Lasell in the consolation round, 25-13, 25-13, 25-23.

            Junior Eliza Badeau (Foster, R.I./Ponaganset) again led the Panthers, and was named to the All-Tournament Team for the second straight week.  She recorded 14 kills with only one attack error in the setback to Emerson, and added 14 kills and just two errors in the win over Lasell.  Badeau also made three successful blocks against Emerson and four vs. Lasell.

            Senior Sarah Spears (Meredith, N.H./Inter-Lakes) and freshman Meghan Sullivan (Marlton, N.J./Cherokee) both reach double figures in digs in the Emerson match, Spears with 15 and Sullivan with 18.  Spears also posted 19 digs in the Lasell match.

            PSU is home again on Tuesday, hosting Colby-Sawyer College in a 6:00 p.m. non-conference match at Foley Gymnasium.
