Volleyball team takes two

Three games in two days was no problem for the Castleton women’s volleyball team this past weekend. They beat Green Mountain College 3-1 on  Sept. 27, and the next day they beat University of Massachusetts Maritime twice in a double header. Both of the wins against Mass. Maritime were 3-0 shutouts.
Against Green Mountain, the lady Spartans won the first two sets with ease. They lost a hard fought third set 27-25. And in the fourth set, Green Mountain stuck with Castleton for the first half of the match. Then Castleton pulled away to win the set 25-13, which gave them the match win.
In their first game against Mass. Maritime on Saturday, the team showed just how dominant it can be. Every game in their match was won by at least 10 points. In the first set they won 25-10 and in the second set they won big with a score of 25-5. And in the third and final set of the match, Castleton won 25-14.
In the second game of the doubleheader against Mass. Maritime they were just as dominant. They came in riding high after the big wins earlier in the day and the momentum carried on. The first set ended with the score 25-9 in favor of the Spartans, and the second set was another blowout, 25-13 in favor of the Spartans. The third set the Spartans won 25-7 and won the match.
After the wins, the team improved to 5-7 on the season. They are about halfway through the season and there is still plenty of time for them to improve their record. They will take their three game winning streak on the road to Green Mountain College, where they will play twice on Oct. 5. Game one will be against Johnson State and game two will be against Lyndon State.
