ANCHORWOMEN UP LEAGUE MARK TO 2-1
Georges, Garcia & Heidel Pace RIC Win Over Corsairs

Providence, RI— The Rhode Island College women’s volleyball team upped its Little East Conference record to 2-1 and 11-9 overall in a 3-0 win over UMass Dartmouth Tuesday night at The Murray Center. The Corsairs, who lost their 10th consecutive match and 10th via shutout, fall to 3-13 overall and 0-3  in league play.

 

The Anchorwomen, who notched their eighth shutout victory of the season, were led offensively by sophomore outside hitter Desiree Georges (Woonsocket, RI), senior middle blocker Kimiyo Garcia (Riverside, RI) and freshman hitter Tess Heidel (Warwick, RI). Georges led the squad with 12 kills, while Garcia was one off the pace. Heidel, who logged 10 kills, along with Georges, came up with some key points during the match.

 

RIC dominated games one and two, posting, 30-18 and 30-23, wins before the Corsairs battled back in game three. The Anchorwomen outlasted UMD, 30-27, to take the game and the match. Sophomore outside hitter Sharon Corriveau (Coventry, RI) led the team with 10 digs, while freshman setter Nicole Enos (Coventry, RI) handed out a team-best 21 assists.

 

Senior outside hitter Nazareth Cardoso (Brockton, MA) led UMass Dartmouth with eight kills and six digs, while junior setter Mellanie Staiger (Bourne, MA) posted 20 assists.

 

In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will host Clark and Eastern Nazarene on Saturday, Oct. 6, while the Corsairs will compete with Worcester State at Wentworth on the same date.
