Men’s Volleyball Powers Past Regis College, 3-0

WESTON, Mass. – Elms College freshman middle hitter Angel Castro (Carolina, Puerto Rico) smashed a match-high 12 kills and sophomore outside hitter Kordel Latimer (Lynn, Mass.) added 11 kills to help propel the Blazers to a 3-0 (25-14, 25-17, 25-8) sweep of Regis College in Saturday's New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) men's volleyball match.

With the win, Elms improves to 9-4 on the season, 4-0 in NECC action, while Regis falls to 0-6 overall, 0-5 in league play.

Elms hit .448 for the match as sophomore setter Daniel Lebron (San Juan, Puerto Rico) distributed 34 assists and tied with junior outside hitter Stephen Cameron (Newington, Conn.) in digs with six.

Cameron was sensational from behind the service line, flooring nine aces (just one off the single-match record for three sets), while Castro served up four aces of his own. Cameron also added four kills, while senior outside hitter Yonalvy Acosta (Holyoke, Mass.) and sophomore middle hitter Bryson Rainey (Brookline, Mass.) added four kills apiece.

Regis was led by David Amicangioli (Arlington, Mass.) who downed three kills, while Andrew Carroll (Natick, Mass.) and Drew Wilder (Brockton, Mass.) added two each.

Carroll and Chris Tran (Quincy, Mass.) also totaled four digs each in the losing effort for the Pride.

Elms returns to action on Saturday, March 25 when it travels to NECC foe Endicott College for a 5:00 p.m. contest.
