PLYMOUTH, N.H. — Plymouth State College clinched second place in the Little East Conference standings Saturday by picking up a pair of wins over Eastern Connecticut State
University, 30-18, 30-19, 30-23 and Rhode Island College, 30-20, 30-22, 30-22 in round robin play at Foley Gymnasium.

In the Panthers’ three-game sweep over Eastern Connecticut, junior Becky Landry (Nashua, N.H.) had 15 kills, five service aces and no errors. Freshman Kelly Landry (Nashua,
N.H.) chipped in with 12 kills while senior setter Jessie O’Hearn (Tilton, N.H.) had 28 assists and two service aces. It was only the second victory for PSC over ECSU in 11 career tries
dating back to 1996.
