LEC Rookie of the Week nod for Silva

October 7th, 2002 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The Little East Conference announced its weekly honors on Monday, and three Plymouth State College student-athletes were
recognized for their performances last week.

Junior Becky Landry (Nashua, N.H.) and freshman Kelly Landry (Nashua, N.H.) were both honored in women’s volleyball, Becky as the Offensive
Player of the Week and Kelly as the Rookie of the Week. In addition, PSC freshman Lilly Silva (Lowell, Mass.) was selected Field Hockey Rookie of the
Week.

The Landrys were instrumental in PSC Volleyball posting a 3-2 record on the week, downing UMass Dartmouth in an LEC match last Wednesday and
splitting four matches at the Bates Invitational over the weekend. They helped the Panthers improve their record to 17-4 overall and 3-1 in conference play.

Becky Landry, a 5’9” middle blocker, earned All-Tournament Team honors at Bates. She finished the week with 72 kills (3.79 per game), and had only
13 errors in 169 attempts for a .349 attack percentage. She contributed a season-high 23 kills in a win over rival Western Connecticut, and had 19 kills in a
five-game loss to MIT, the top-ranked team in New England. Becky was also the LEC Offensive Player of the Week once last month.

Kelly Landry, a 5’9” outside hitter, recorded 76 digs during the week (4.0 per game), including a season-high 39 in the win over Western Connecticut.
She also added 41 kills for the Panthers. Kelly was named LEC Offensive Player of the Week just seven days ago.

A freshman midfielder, Silva scored the only goal of the game in PSC’s only field hockey contest last week, a 1-0 verdict over Southern Maine. The win
helped the Panthers maintain sole possession of first place as the only unbeaten team in the LEC (4-0). Silva’s first-half goal was her third of the season, as
she has helped PSC outscore its opponents, 18-1, en route to a 7-1 overall record.
