Volleyball Comes Up Short Against WSU

LEICESTER, Mass.- Senior Alyssa Jasper registered a .387 attacking percentage with 14 kills – including the 1,000th of her career – to help propel Worcester State to a 3-0 victory over Becker in non-conference women's volleyball action this evening at the Leicester Gymnasium.

The Blue and Gold (12-2) ran their streak to seven consecutive wins by defeating the Hawks (2-10) in three straight sets, 25-16, 25-20 and 25-20.

Jasper becomes the second Lancer to join the exclusive club as she entered the contest needing just nine to reach the millennial mark. With her sum at 1,005, Jasper is 122 away from becoming the programs all-time leader and passing former standout Lauren Saylor (2006-09).

Senior Amanda Lewis recorded her fifth double-double of the campaign with 33 assists and 10 digs while junior Meghan Deighan (Lynnfield, MA) hammered seven kills and three solo blocks.

Junior Kaylee Leduc paced the defense with 10 digs as classmate Jennifer Cabral and sophomore Valerie Hoyle tag teamed to tally nine kills.

Becker was paced by freshman Kiristi Hadzewycz (Daytona Beach, Fla.) who finished with team high 13 kills with six digs. Hadzewycz also hit at a .400 clip with just three errors in 25 attempts.

Freshman Samantha Lee (Prospect, Conn.) put up 11 digs while junior Samantha Caouette (Montague, Mass.) and sophomore Marissa Turner (Coventry, R.I.) combined for 11 kills. Freshman Charlene Landry (Gorham, MA) doled out 20 assists for the Hawks.

Both squads return to the court on this weekend. The Lancers look to keep their streak going in a 1:00 p.m. road MASCAC match-up against MCLA on Saturday as Becker entertains UMaine Fort Kent in a twin-bill starting at 12:30 p.m. this Sunday.
