ATTLEBORO, Mass. - After an 0-5 start to the 2008 season, the Lesley University women's volleyball team got on a roll this past week, defeating three NECC opponents behind the solid play of Lindsey Marek (Killingworth, Conn.).  For her efforts, Marek earned NECC Player of the Week.

Marek launched her team to a 3-0 record the past week, notching their first wins on the season.  The Lynx defeated NECC opponents Newbury, Bay Path and Mitchell, all in straight sets. 

The junior tallied 24 kills, 21 digs, 15 solo blocks and six aces over the nine sets while averaging 2.7 kills, 0.67, 2.3 digs, and 1.7 blocks per set. 

This past weekend, the Lynx traveled to Mitchell College to compete with the Mariners and Bay Path College in a tri-match. 

In the two matches, Gianna Spaziante (Hawthorne, N.Y.) finished with 35 assists.  Meaghan Chadwick (Chelmsford, Mass.) returned from illness to record seven kills in the two matches.

The Lynx will next travel to Eastern Nazarene College on September 30 at 7:00 pm.
