LC volleyball vs. Carl Sandburg     Send a link to a friend

[OCT. 22, 2004]  Lincoln College defeated Carl Sandburg 30-17, 30-27, 30-28 in volleyball action at Lincoln Thursday night, running the season record to 18-15. The Lynx are idle until Oct. 27, when they will host the Lincoln Christian College JV team.

Kristin Majka had eight kills, two digs and five points; Danielle Crum had four kills to go with five blocks; and Erica Lill had five kills and three blocks. Samantha McCoy contributed with five digs and six points; Beth Applen had two digs and three points; and Spencer Hall had three kills and one point.

"Tonight, our defense was the deciding factor," said Lincoln coach Mark Tippett. "Our blockers did an outstanding job at the net, scoring several points off blocks and disrupting the Carl Sandburg offense. Carl Sandburg never quit and made late runs at us in the second and third games, which created some tension on our side; however, we were able to keep our composure and take control of the game when we had to. Overall, it was a great team effort, and I was proud of the way we performed."
