Volleyball beats Becker in straight-sets

The Rams’ volleyball team took on Becker at home Oct. 8. 

Becker led 7-6 early in the first set, but then Framingham scored five-straight points and took the 11-7 lead. 

From there, the Rams never gave up the lead again.

They won the first set 25-12, with six-straight points to finish it off. 

In the second set, Framingham and Becker battled back and forth until the Rams took a 14-13 lead.

They stretched the lead all the way to the decisive score of 25-16 to win the set. 

The third set was much of the same, with both teams scoring one after another.

When the game became 18-14 Rams, Brandee Thomas took over.

She recorded five of the Rams’ last six points to win the final set and the game. 

Framingham bounced back from a recent 0-3 loss with this win. 

Thomas said, “We tried a new lineup that actually worked better than the previous. We’ve been practicing the things we lack in games, and we have definitely seen improvement.”

Thomas led the Rams in the game with 14 kills, while also recording 12 digs.

Alyssa Cafarelli led the Rams in digs as per usual, putting up 13. 

“Without Alyssa, we wouldn’t be able to create an offense,” Thomas said. “She constantly gets to every ball and all the girls on the team have full trust in her that she will make plays to continue the action of the game.”

A week after stuffing the stat sheet, freshman Hailey Sanders put up another great performance, racking up eight kills and six blocks. 

“Hailey is an awesome player. I feel like she’s really starting to connect well with our setters,” Thomas said. “It’s great to have her performing well. It’s always exciting when she makes an amazing play.”

Framingham will play again Oct. 12 against Elms College.
