SALEM, Mass. – Sophomore middle hitter Eliza Badeau (Foster, R.I.) recorded 12 kills and five blocks Tuesday evening to lead Plymouth State University’s women’s volleyball team to an easy three-game sweep over Salem State College in non-conference action at Twohig Gymnasium.
The Panthers posted 30-20 and 30-21 decisions in the first two games, then put the match away with a 30-15 victory in game three. PSU won for the eighth time in the last nine outings, improving to 19-7 overall, while Salem State fell to 1-16.
Sophomore Megan Elliott (West Haven, Conn.) had one of her best performances of the season for the Panthers, making seven kills, a team-high three service aces and three digs. Freshman reserve setter Sara Cady (Holliston, Mass.) got an opportunity to play and recorded 18 assists.
PSU wraps up the regular season this Friday and Saturday at the Brandeis Tournament in Waltham, Mass. The Little East Conference Tournament begins next Tuesday, and the Panthers will have a home match at Foley Gymnasium against an opponent to be determined.
