Women’s Volleyball maintain even record
Assistant Sports Editor
Last week, Rhode Island College played two home games against Little East Conference opponent Keene State and against Nichols College for the final two games of the month. As the season passes its midway point, the team’s record is currently 6-6. In the Little East Conference, however, they are 0-2. One of the losses was against last week’s opponent, Keene State.
Keene State proved to be an extremely strong opponent, though RIC did not back down and fought for every point throughout the game. Throughout the game, both teams were almost matched in kills per set in every set, apart from the first set where Keene had 15 kills compared to RIC’s 10, they both managed to get 10 kills in both the second and third sets.
The first set was pushed to extra points, with Keene State taking it 26-24. The following two sets both ended with the same result: a tight 25-22 loss for RIC and a clean sweep of 3-0 for Keene State. Though a very close game, it is possible that the outcome could have been different had RIC committed less errors, totaling 29 errors compared to Keene’s 13.
Next up is the game against Nichols, which started off close, but ended in a 3-0 win for RIC.
The first and second set proved to be tight for both teams as they ended in scores of 25-18 and 25-21, respectively. It seemed to be a completely different story for the final set as it seemed Nichols just handed RIC the win as the Anchorwomen when on the offensive with the set ending in a 25-10 victory.
Jillian Ward and Courtney Lambrese led the team with a total of 15 kills combined and a total of 27 for the team.
