The Suffolk University volleyball team celebrates from the bench in a matchup against Curry College Oct. 3. The Rams won the game in a 3-0 sweep.

Suffolk University’s volleyball team traveled to face the Western New England Golden Bears Oct. 12. The Rams defeated the Golden Bears 3-1 to win their second straight match.

Suffolk is now 5-6 against Western New England all-time and 4-0 under head coach Scott Blanchard. It’s the third Suffolk win out of six matches that have been decided in four sets.

The Rams improved to 12-7 overall and a perfect 3-0 in Commonwealth Coast Conference play, having previously defeated CCC foes Curry College and Nichols College.

Suffolk won set one convincingly, prevailing by a 25-14 score. After the Golden Bears won a hard-fought set two 27-25, Suffolk responded with a 25-16 victory in set three. Set four was closer, but ended in a Suffolk win, with the Rams prevailing 25-22 to win the match.

Two Rams posted double-doubles in the match. McKenna Keowen picked up 23 digs and 13 kills, while Jayla Martinez had 23 assists and 15 digs. Junior Jessica Weber led the Rams in kills with 17, while also adding one ace, six digs and three blocks.

Junior libero Morgan Kelsey, two-time CCC Libero of the week, recorded 28 digs and seven assists, while fellow junior Tatum Kalt had 16 digs and an ace.

Suffolk continues their October slate with a home doubleheader Oct. 14. The Rams face CCC opponent Gordon College at 11 a.m. before taking on Fisher College 3 p.m. Suffolk wraps up a three match homestand Oct. 18 with a conference matchup against Roger Williams.
