Providence, R.I.-After returning home to The Murray Center for the first time in 19 days, the Rhode Island College women’s volleyball team picked up their third win of the season in dramatic fashion by knocking off Lasell College in five sets, 3-2 (22-25, 25-22, 25-19, 24-26, 15-10).

 

After the Lasers took the opening set by three, RIC (3-6) rebounded to take the second and third frames, including a commanding six-point win in the third.
