[SEPT. 25, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- Parkland and Rend Lake both defeated the Lincoln College Lynx in volleyball action here Friday in the Region 24 tournament. The Lynx will play three matches Saturday in the tournament.

Parkland beat the Lynx 30-23 and 32-30, while Rend Lake needed three games to beat the Lynx. Lincoln College won the first game against Rend Lake 30-27 but lost the next two games, with Rend Lake posting wins by the scores of 30-17 and 15-11.

"We got off to a slow start against Parkland by letting one of the servers run off 10 points," said LC coach Mark Tippett. "I was pleased with the way we battled back, and from that point we played them evenly. After taking the first game from Rend Lake, we let down mentally and struggled in our passing game. We are learning the hard way that if you don't stay focused and confident, the teams in our region will find a way to beat you. We have three matches Saturday, and if we pass the ball and play as a team, I am confident we will start winning some of these close matches."

Kristin Majka had eight kills and 10 points, while Kristen Meminger scored nine points and nine kills. Victoria Tuttle was credited with four kills and five points; Erica Lill had eight kills and five blocks; and Rosie Miller had 11 set assists and seven points.
