"We played a solid match against
Danville, and we controlled the first game from the start and won a
hard-fought second game," said LC coach Mark Tippett. "I was pleased
with our effort against John A. Logan because they have a very
athletic team. We stepped up our game and played right with them,
coming up a bit short. We never really got it together against
Shawnee after a long layoff between games.
