ANCHORWOMEN TAKE TWO AT LEC TRI-MATCH
Miga & Greene Help RIC to 4-1 Conference Mark

Gorham, MEóRhode Island College took two important matches at a Little East Conference Womenís Volleyball tri-match, hosted by Southern Maine on Saturday afternoon. The Anchorwomen  improve to 18-10 overall and 4-1 in the Little East Conference heading into the final week of the regular season.

 

Rhode Island College had no problem with host Southern Maine and it downed the Huskies in three straight games. Senior middle hitter Erin Miga (Cranston, RI) and junior outside hitter Madison Greene (Cranston, RI) led the squad with 10 kills apiece. Junior setter Jeanne Rosa (Milford, CT) totaled 20 assists. Freshman outside hitter Sharon Corriveau (Coventry, RI) and senior libero Stephanie Wojciechowski (North Kingstown, RI) totaled eight and seven digs, respectively.

 

The Anchorwomen were forced to come back from a 2-1 deficit in their match against Keene State. After falling, 30-22, in game one, RIC evened the contest with a game two, 30-28, victory. The Owls dominated RIC in game three, 30-15, before the Anchorwomen came back with an equally impressive win in game four, 30-18, then held on to win, 15-11, in the fifth and deciding game. Four Anchorwomen recorded 10 or more kills in the match as Miga posted a team-high 14. Greene and junior right side hitter Sherri Heard (Coventry, RI) registered 13 apiece, while Corriveau totaled 12. Rosa and junior setter Amy Souza (Tiverton, RI) combined for 51 assists with 26 and 25, respectively. Miga had five blocks, while Wojciechowski had 21 digs.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will play at Connecticut College on Wednesday, Oct. 25, then travel to Western Connecticut for the final Little East Conference tri-match of the regular season with the Colonials and UMass Boston.
