The Spartans volleyball team was back on the court this week with the matches against, Southern Vermont, Lyndon State, Green Mountain, Elms, and Rhode Island College.

They kicked off their week with matches against Southern Vermont and Lyndon State for Homecoming Weekend. The Spartans lost their opening match to Southern Vermont 3-1 but rallied in the second match and dominated the Hornets of Lyndon in straight sets 3-0.

Brittany Brayman led the offense with 13 kills.

“The girls worked hard and we are working to get better,” said sophomore Brittany Brayman.

The Spartans kept that momentum going into their match against Green Mountain College with an impressive straight set win 3-0.  The Spartans were led by great defensive play by Kristi Lawless and Brayman.

“We played well all game and that’s exactly what we needed before we start conference play, said coach Nicole Kondziela.

Unfortunately their luck ran out when they dropped their last two matches to Elms 3-1 and Rhode Island College 3-0.  

The Spartans next home game is Oct. 15 against SUNY Cobleskill.
