[SEPT. 9, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- Lincoln College improved to 5-1 with a three-game volleyball victory over Springfield College here Wednesday night. The Lynx won the match by scores of 31-29, 30-19 and 30-23.

Kristen Meminger, Erica Lill and Kristin Majka combined for 23 blocks to lead the Lynx to victory. Meminger was credited with nine blocks, while Lill and Majka had seven each. Majka also contributed six points.

Rosie Miller had a total of 20 set assists and 10 points for the Lynx, and Sarah Klawitter had 10 set assists and two digs.

"The first game was a little sloppy with both teams missing a lot of serves," said Lincoln coach Mark Tippett. "We were down 29-26 and ran off five straight points to win the game. We controlled the second and third games, as our passing improved and we were able to get our serves in. It was a very solid win for us. We have been able to utilize our talent to get our defense and offense clicking."

Lincoln College plays Carl Sandburg on Thursday in Galesburg.
