[MAY 17, 2004]
daughter of Richard and Lorie Reiners of Emden, and Chelsea Faith,
daughter of Debbie and Jay Rogers of Mount Pulaski and David and
Sarah Faith of Lincoln, have signed letters of intent to attend
Lincoln College in the fall. Tuttle is a recent graduate of
Hartsburg-Emden High School and Faith is a 2004 graduate of Mount
Pulaski High School.
Tuttle has the honor
of being named the recipient of the Rudy Lolling Sportsmanship Award
at Hartem and is a member of the 2003 squad that went to the Sweet
16 under the direction of Hartem High School head volleyball coach
Jennifer Hayes. Tuttle played club volleyball for the Illinois
Juniors Hartem team in Hartsburg.
Faith played for
Mount Pulaski head coach Donna Dulle and was a member of the Class A
team that finished in second place with a record of 36-4 in IHSA
state tournament play in 2003. Both athletes play the right hitter

Lincoln College head
volleyball coach Mark Tippett is happy both girls chose the Lynx.
"I'm happy to have two local athletes who come from strong high
school programs," he said. "I plan to utilize both players in a
two-setter system, which will mean that we will always have a strong
offensive and defensive presence at the right-side hitter position.
I look forward to working with these two athletes because they know
what it takes to win, and I believe they will be solid players as
well as team leaders for the next two seasons.
Tuttle and Faith join a list of top LC
recruits that also includes all-conference middle hitter Danielle
Crum from Belvidere; Erica Lill, a 6-foot middle hitter from
Bolingbrook; and Amber Stewart, a 5-foot-10 outside hitter from
Oquawka. These incoming players will join sophomore outside hitter
Kristin Majka, who received CCCI first-team all-conference honors
last season, and sophomore Samantha McCoy, last season's leader in
digs, as part of the Lady Lynx squad next season.
