PALATINE -- This weekend the
Lincoln College volleyball team participated in an invitational at
Harper College. It was the first of what is planned to be an annual
tournament. Lincoln was unable to add to its collection of
tournament championships as the Lady Lynx went 2-2, which was not
good enough to advance out of pool play.
LC recorded victories over Illinois Valley Community College (25-18,
14-25, 15-8) and College of Lake County (25-19, 14-25, 15-12).
Lincoln suffered losses to Highland Community College (18-25, 19-25)
and hosts Harper College (9-25, 14-25).
LC sophomore middle hitter
Lara Dawson was named to the all-tournament team.
Lincoln's record now stands at 14-8.
Tournament totals for Lincoln:
Gretchen Rieger -- 23
kills, 8 digs, 9 points
Natalia Florczyk --
20 kills, 7 points
Lara Dawson -- 15
kills, 6 blocks, 8points
Melanie Herbeck -- 53

Emily Fox -- 14
points, 7 digs, 2 kills
Abbie Hare -- 10 kills, 5 blocks
Comments from LC coach Mark Tippett: "We struggled to find any
consistency on offense during this tournament. Our passing was shaky
at times, and this led to our sending way too many free balls to the
other side. We have done very well at weekend events up to this
point, so maybe we were due for a rough outing. Hopefully we will
straighten things out before we host a tri-match at home next
LC travels to Champaign to take on Parkland College on Wednesday.
