Men's soccer

The Lincoln College menís soccer team (7-1-2) defeated Florissant Valley 5-0 in Lincoln on Sunday afternoon.


PALOS HILLS -- The Lincoln College volleyball team lost twice in play at the Moraine Valley Community College triangular on Saturday. 

LC (8-14) started out strong against Highland Community College (10-8), taking the first set 25-15, but it was all downhill from there. The Lady Lynx lost the next three to Highland 25-15, 25-21 and 25-22.

Lincoln then went on to lose to the undefeated host school, MVCC (18-0), by scores of 25-14, 25-13 and 25-14.

LC individual stats:

  • Alexis Nelson: 18 kills, 8 digs, 7 points

  • Kristen Wright: 17 set assists, 10 points

  • Emily Fox: 24 set assists, 9 points

  • Natalia Florczyk: 7 kills, 3 digs, 3 points

  • Chelsea Rhoades: 8 kills, 6 blocks, 1 dig

  • Jacqui Kane: 4 kills

  • Markeshia Williams: 9 digs

LC coach Mark Tippett commented:

"We did not play very well today. We struggled in our passing game, and defensively we had a hard time getting our block established. This caused lots of problems for our back-row defenders and led to too many scoring runs for the other team. We need to improve in these areas if we want to get things going in the right direction again."

Lincoln will host Greenville College in a 6 p.m. match on Tuesday.
