EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence High School girls' volleyball squad opened up its Division II regular season schedule in impressive fashion over the last week with a pair of sweeps.

On Wednesday night, Sept. 6, the Townies were 3-0 winners over Cranston West on the road.

The Townies shut out the host Falcons by the scores of 25-10, 26-24, 25-22. Sophomores Ellie Vest and Keira Mullen combined for 16 kills and 8 aces. Senior libero Daniella Escudero had 12 digs and 3 aces.

In between, EPHS had a non-league outing in Providence against Classical cancelled on Thursday, Sept. 7, due to the day's excessive heat. 

The Townies returned to Division II action earlier this week when they hosted neighboring Barrington Tuesday night, Sept. 12.

East Providence swept the visiting Eagles by the scores of 25-15, 25-21 and 25-13. Mullen led the locals with eight kills. She added three blocks and three aces. Escudero had 15 digs and seven  aces.

The Townies play twice more before the week concludes both on the road: in Newport Thursday, Sept. 14, against Rogers at 6:30 p.m. and in Bristol Friday, Sept. 15, against Mt. Hope at 6 p.m.
