PSU Volleyball ousts Keene State in Little East 1st Round Match

November 3rd, 2004 by Adam

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Junior Kelly Landry (Nashua, N.H.) registered 12 kills Wednesday evening at Foley Gymnasium to lead third-seeded Plymouth State University to an easy 3-0 victory over sixth-seeded Keene State College in the first round of the 2004 Little East Conference Women’s Volleyball Tournament.

            The Panthers cruised to a 30-17, 30-16, 30-14 triumph over the Owls, who had only six players available for the match.  PSU had needed five games to knock off Keene State earlier this season.

            Plymouth State, which improved to 26-11 overall, moves on to the LEC Tournament semifinals Friday at top-seeded Rhode Island College.  The Panthers will meet second-seeded Western Connecticut State University at 5:30 p.m., with RIC facing fourth-seeded Eastern Connecticut in the other semifinal at 7:30 p.m.

            The LEC Championship match is slated for Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at RIC.  The top four seeds in the tournament – RIC, WCSU, ECSU and PSU – shared the LEC regular season title, all with 5-2 conference records.  Western Conn. is the five-time defending champion, defeating Plymouth State in last year’s championship match.

            Landry, the conference leader in kills, added six digs to her offensive performance on Wednesday.  Juniors Becky Ciulla (Chelmsford, Mass.) and Kim Krause (Pound Ridge, N.Y.) added eight kills and seven digs apiece, and junior setter Amanda Bagwell (Riverside, R.I.) contributed 33 assists.

            Freshman Kelly Yankowski (Turners Falls, Mass.) led the Owls with seven kills and 12 digs.  Sophomore Brenna Whaley (Bedford, N.H./West) contributed a team-high 14 digs, and freshman Lanaya Nelson (Chester, Conn.) registered 13 assists.  Keene State concludes its season at 9-14.
