Maymon Reaches Milestone in 3-2 Setback to Lasell

NEWTON, Mass. -- Senior outside hitter Hannah Maymon (Narragansett, R.I.) reached another milestone as the Bridgewater State University volleyball team dropped a 3-2 decision to Lasell College on Tuesday night.

With 14 digs on the evening, Maymon increased her career total to 1,009 as she became just the third player in program history to reach the millennium milestone in both digs and kills. Maymon joins Melissa Machado and Julie Clerc who accomplished the feat in 2005 and 2010, respectively.

Lasell won the second, third and fifth sets to move to 11-16 on the season as the Lasers extended their winning streak to four matches. Bridgewater falls to 10-17 overall with the setback. The Bears are just 3-9 in their last 12 matches.

Sophomore Olivia Addington (Orange, Calif.) posted a career-high 24 kills to pace the Lasers' attack, including four of the team's eight in the deciding fifth set. Juniors Michele Canestro (Castleton, N.Y.) and Meredith Eagan (North Andover, Mass.) chipped in with 15 and 12 kills, respectively.

Junior Taylor Tiezzi (Meriden, Conn.) dished out 51 of Lasell's 60 assists. Sophomore Caitlyn Garcia (Moreno Valley, Calif.) was one of three Lasers to post double-digit digs in the contest with 36, marking her first time surpassing the 30-dig marker since the Lasers' second match of the season on Sept. 7 against Colby-Sawyer.

For the Bears, sophomore Erin Clifford (Hanson, Mass.) posted a team-high 15 kills and a .324 hitting percentage to go along with three assisted blocks and a pair of aces. Maymon finished with 12 kills and an ace in addition to her 14 digs, while senior Clara Goncalves (Dennis, Mass.) recorded nine kills and 16 digs.

BSU senior setter Charleyne Panner (Gilford, Mass.) chipped in 39 kills, four kills and seven digs, while sophomore Cassidy Tyros (Chelmsford, Mass.) led the defensive effort with 32 digs.

Both teams are on the road on Thursday night. The Bears take on Emerson College at seven, while the Lasers face off against WPI also at seven.
