"The match against Millikin was hard-fought from beginning to end," said Lincoln coach Mark Tippett. "We let leads slip away in the first and fourth games, which was the difference in the match. I was pleased with the way we bounced back and defeated Danville. Our sophomores really played with intensity and a lot of heart. It was a great way to finish our regular season."
