"I was very proud of the way our
team played this past weekend," Lincoln College coach Mark Tippett
said. "We faced some tough competition and responded with our best
volleyball of the year. Our passing game returned to form, and that
allowed our offense to work much more smoothly than it has in the
past couple of weeks. We were able to control the flow of the
matches we won, and our losses were hard-fought to the end.
"It was great to see our players
working together as a team and having fun. We took a big step
forward as a team this weekend, which should give us a lot of
confidence as we head into the second half of the season."
