[SEPT. 22, 2004]  Lincoln College surpassed last season's win total with a victory over Illinois Valley Community College Tuesday night, winning in three games. The Lynx defeated IVCC 30-17, 30-11 and 31-29.

LC now stands at 8-4 for the season. Last year the Lynx finished the season at 7-21.

Kristin Majka led the Lynx with eight kills, eight points and six digs. Erica Lill had five kills, six points, six aces and six blocks. Also contributing big-time for the Lynx were Danielle Crum with four kills and six blocks; Samantha McCoy with eight digs, five points and two aces; and Sarah Klawitter with 11 set assists and five points.

"We played very well in all aspects of the game tonight (Tuesday)," LC coach Mark Tippett said. "We have been passing the ball much better as of late, and tonight that allowed us to control the flow of the match. Defensively we were solid all night long, especially blocking at the net. Our middle hitters, Lill and Crum, played extremely well tonight. This win should give us plenty of confidence going into the weekend tournament."

Lincoln College will compete in the first-ever Region 24 tourney Friday and Saturday in Springfield.

"The tournament is not designed to find a winner, but rather a way for teams in our region that normally do not play each other to get a match in before seeding the regional tournament at the end of the season," Tippett said. "We will play five matches against teams from the southern half of the region."
