PSC Wins UMaine Farmington Tournament

October 11th, 1998 by Adam

FARMINGTON, Maine – It was another marathon day of volleyball, but well worth it for the Plymouth State College women’s team as the Panthers captured the championship
Saturday at the UMaine Farmington Invitational Tournament.

The Panthers went unbeaten in five matches in the tournament, capturing the team title for the second consecutive year. After earning pool-play victories over Husson College
(3-1), Salem State (3-2) and UMaine Machias (3-0), PSC knocked off host UMF in the semi-finals (3-0) and defeated the University of New England in the championship match in five
games, 15-8, 11-15, 9-15, 15-10, 15-4.

The wins capped off a 6-1 week for the Panthers, improving them to 17-7 overall under first-year head coach Moira Long. PSC also captured the Roger Williams Tournament
title earlier this season for the third straight year.

Junior Andrea Baretta (Kensington, CT), a setter and defensive specialist, was PSC’s representative on the All-Tournament Team. She registered a school-record 55 assists
in the championship match victory over UNE, and finished the tournament with 117 assists, six service aces (including five in the semi-final win over UMF), two blocks and 32 digs.

Also contributing to the Panthers’ balanced attack were juniors Jill Langis (Farmington, NH), Veronica Mulholland (Billerica, MA) and Anna Lingelbach (Center Harbor, NH),
and senior Margo Imbornone (Westwood, MA). Langis recorded a team-high 47 kills and 60 digs, including 17 kills in the championships match. Mulholland posted 45 kills, 10
service aces and 56 digs, including a tournament-best 20 digs in the title match. Linglebach registered a team-high 17 blocks at the net, seven in the opening match win over
Husson, along with 43 kills and 14 digs. Imbornone was good for 39 kills and 10 digs, including a team-high eight kills in the semi-final triumph over UMF.

The Panthers gets right back into action Monday (Oct. 12) at the Rivier Quad in Nashua (1:00 p.m.). Then after an encounter Thursday (Oct. 15) at St. Anselm, PSC returns
home Sunday (Oct. 18) to host St. Joseph’s College at Foley Gymnasium (2:00 p.m.).
