[SEPT. 10, 2004]  GALESBURG -- Carl Sandburg handed the Lincoln College volleyball team its second defeat of the season by winning in five games here Thursday night. Carl Sandburg won the first game 30-22 and the Lynx bounced back to take the next two games by the scores of 30-27 and 30-25. Carl Sandburg then rebounded to win the fourth game 33-31 and took the deciding game by a 15-8 score.

"We really fought hard Thursday night," said Lincoln coach Mark Tippett. "Carl Sandburg was much improved from last year, and I think we took them a bit lightly in the beginning match. I was pleased with how we rebounded from the first game to take the next two. We let a seven-point lead slip away in the fourth game, but we kept our composure and still had opportunities to win the match. We were never able to put them away, though, and they wound up taking the fourth game from us. It wasn't our night. …We didn't earn the win, but I believe we gained some valuable experience that will make us a stronger team in the long run."

Lincoln College, 5-2, will be idle until Tuesday, when they host the Lincoln Christian College JV team, and will be at home for a conference match Thursday against Parkland.
