PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State University needed less than an hour to defeat Lyndon State College in a non-conference women’s volleyball match Wednesday evening at Foley Gymnasium, defeating the Hornets in three straight games, 30-7, 30-7 and 30-15.
The Panthers extended their winning streak to three, and improved to 8-3 overall. The Hornets, a first-year program, gave a solid effort but fell to 1-9.
Plymouth State did much of its damage at the service line, where they recorded 33 service aces. Freshman setter Brianna Kleckner (Terryville, Conn.) led the way, tying the school record for aces in a match with 16.
Sophomore Michaela Del Rosso (East Providence, R.I.) led the offense with eight kills, while junior Kirsten Willoughby (Plymouth, N.H.) and sophomore Regan Bowlen (Portsmouth, N.H.) contributed seven kills apiece.
Top players for the visitors were junior Kerrin Jeromin (Mendon, Vt.), senior Ashley Ireland (Hampden, Maine) and junior Serena Franks (Plainfield, Vt.)
