On Saturday, he registered seven kills in 15 errorless attempts vs. 12th-ranked Kean, and closed out the weekend with seven kills, hitting .500, four digs, three aces, and three blocks in a three-game win over host Rutgers-Newark.

For the season, Pelletier is hitting .405 with a team-best 45 kills to go along with 28 digs and 14 blocks.
