PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State College split a pair of non-conference volleyball matches Thursday night at Foley Gymnasium, rebounding from a five-game loss to Middlebury by
beating St. Joseph’s College (Maine) in three games.

Middlebury edged PSC in the opening match, 26-30, 30-23, 30-15, 27-30, 15-10, but the hosts came back with a 30-21, 30-17, 30-26 decision over the Monks.

With the split of the two matches, PSC now stands at 21-6 on the season. Middlebury improves to 11-10, while St. Joseph’s falls to 5-16. The outcome also gives PSC coach Moira
Long a career record of 105-54; she captured her 100th career win earlier this month.

In the first match, juniors Becky Landry (Nashua, N.H.) and junior Kate Shirey (Amherst, N.H.) and freshman Kelly Landry (Nashua, N.H.) led the Panthers with 17, 13 and 11 kills
respectively. Becky Landry had five service aces while sister Kelly Landry added four. Senior setter Jessie O’Hearn (Tilton) had 36 assists.

Against St. Joseph’s, the Panthers were led by Kelly Landry’s 12 kills. O’Hearn added seven service aces for the winners.

Plymouth State, which has won seven of its last 11 matches and is ranked #15 in New England, returns to action on Saturday (Oct. 26) when it hosts a Little East Conference round
robin with Southern Maine, Eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island College. The first serve is set for 1:00 p.m.
