            PLYMOUTH, N.H. Two Plymouth State University women's volleyball players were honored Monday with top weekly honors from the Little East Conference for their performances in a pair of Panther victories last week.

            Sophomore Allie Jones was named LEC Women's Volleyball Offensive Player of the Week, and senior Danielle Stoodley was selected LEC Defensive Player of the Week. They were instrumental in PSU posting a non-conference win over Rivier College last Tuesday and an LEC victory Saturday at UMass Dartmouth.
