The Lincoln College volleyball team handed Millikin JV a setback in three games Saturday at Decatur. The Lynx won by scores of 30-15, 30-24, 30-23. Lincoln College raised its record to 4-1 for the season.

"We continued doing the things we need in order to be successful," Lincoln coach Mark Tippett said. "Our serving was strong and our passing allowed us to control the flow of the match. I am very pleased with the team chemistry I am seeing early in the season."

Chelsea Faith led the way with nine kills, two blocks and five digs. Danielle Crum had six kills and seven blocks, while Misty Fry had seven points and four aces. Beth Applen and Cara Willey each contributed with eight and seven digs respectively.

Lincoln College will be in action Wednesday at Springfield College.

Women's soccer

The Lincoln College women's soccer team was unable to handle Southwestern Illinois College at Belleville as they lost by a 12-0 score.

"This was a tough loss due to seven players who were unable to compete because of injuries," said Lincoln coach Aaron Paskvan. "Our girls never quit and played through the pain and frustrations."

Southwestern had 25 shots on goal while Lincoln College was able to manage just two shots, both by Sara Musser. Musser had five saves for the Lynx and Colleen Kabbes had three.

Lincoln College drops to 0-3 on the season.
