[October 10, 2011]  GODFREY -- On Saturday, the Lincoln College volleyball team traveled to Godfrey for a triangular at Lewis and Clark Community College. LC came away with one win and one loss.

The first match of the day for Lincoln was a five-set victory over Southwestern Illinois College. LC started out well, taking the first set 25-21, then proceeded to drop the next two 23-25 and 20-25. The Lady Lynx rallied in set four to win it 25-13. Set five saw several lead changes before SWIC took a late 13-9 lead. After a side-out, Lincoln sophomore Kristen Wright served six straight points to close out the set 15-13.

In their match against Lewis and Clark, LC started out slowly and dropped the first set 23-25 but rebounded to take set two 25-21. Set three was closely contested and saw the score tied at 20-20, when Lincoln ran out of substitutions and had to play several players out of position. Lincoln eventually lost the set 21-25. In set four, LC trailed most of the way and eventually lost it 22-25.

Lincoln moved to 16-8 on the season.

LC coach Mark Tippett commented:

"We had a rough day on Saturday, mostly due to problems that we made for ourselves. Our serving was quite bad at times, which put a lot of pressure on our serve receive game.

"The SWIC match was a struggle from beginning to end. They served us short a lot, and we did not handle it very well. It took a huge effort in set five to come back and get the win.

"The Lewis and Clark match was frustrating because we did not take advantage of gaps in their defense very well, and we continued to serve poorly, especially in set three. We missed six serves in that set alone and let them get away with missing five and being out of rotation on another. That loss put us in the hole against them, and we never really recovered in set four.

"We will certainly be spending more time serving in practice."

Lincoln College will host the Greenville JV team on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. match.
