[OCT. 18, 2004]  KANKAKEE -- The Lincoln College volleyball team was able to win two of five matches at the Kankakee Community College tourney here Friday and Saturday. The Lynx lost both matches on Friday -- the first to Kankakee 30-24, 30-8, 30-23. Danville then defeated the Lynx by scores of 30-25, 30-26, 30-24.

On Saturday the Lynx bounced back to defeat Carl Sandburg by scores of 30-17, 30-21, 30-12 and then beat Illinois Valley 33-31, 23-30, 30-26, 19-30, 15-10. Vincennes then downed the Lynx in their final match by scores of 30-17, 30-19, 30-20.

"It was a long day on Friday, our passing was poor, and we did not communicate well on offense or defense," Lincoln coach Mark Tippett said. "We did bounce back to pick up two solid wins on Saturday. The Illinois Valley match went five games, and it took a lot out of us as we had no rest period before playing Vincennes. Overall, I was pleased with the effort we put forth, and I am sure our players had fun."
