[October 16, 2012]  ST. LOUIS -- The Lincoln Christian University women's volleyball team participated in a tournament at St. Louis College of Pharmacy on Friday and Saturday. LCU took the loss to a tough Oakland City University 0-3 in the championship match to seal their runner-up title.

In the opening match Friday, the Red Lions were able to defeat the College of Pharmacy host team 3-1 after losing the first set. Senior Krystine Schnautz supplied 16 kills to lead LCU, and sophomore Emily Sheley recorded 14 kills. LCU then took a 0-3 loss to Oakland City later that evening.

On Saturday, the Red Lions come out on top against Midway University 3-1 to secure their place in the championship match. After losing the first set again, LCU was able to win the next three. Schnautz and sophomore Alicia Carson combined for 29 of the team's 50 kills during the match. Freshman Taylor Cremeens recorded 25 sets.

In the championship match against Oakland City, the Red Lions had a hard time getting any offense going. Freshman Emma Donnelly recorded 25 digs, while Carson pounded out 13 kills. In the end, the Oakland offense was too much to handle.

With only three regular-season games left on the schedule, the No. 3 Red Lions (17-10) look to prepare for postseason play. LCU will host Greenville College on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Laughlin Center.


LCU's School of Undergraduate Studies is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association, Division II. To find out more about the Red Lions, visit the LCU website at www.lincolnchristian.edu and click on "Athletics."
