[October 27, 2012]  DECATUR -- On Thursday evening the Lincoln College volleyball team traveled to Decatur to face the Millikin JV squad. Lincoln used a balanced attack and accurate serving to earn a three-set victory over the Big Blue. The scores were 25-18, 25-16, 25-23.

Lincoln's record is now 18-13.

LC individual totals:

  • Jenna Merkel: 11 kills, 8 points

  • Morgan Lesher: 7 kills, 11 digs, 10 points

  • Vicky Arriola: 4 points, 32 set assists

  • Kelly Anderson: 7 kills, 3 blocks

  • Beth Daniels: 8 kills, 4 blocks

  • Taylor Hewitt: 9 digs, 2 points

  • Alyssa Morales: 10 digs, 9 points

  • Kristin Davis: 1 kill, 1 block

  • Jordan Michaels: 5 digs

LC coach Mark Tippett commented:

"Tonight we were very consistent in all phases of the game, which is exactly what every coach hopes to see at this point of the season. We only made two serving errors, and even though we were swinging aggressively on offense, we were able to keep our hitting errors to a minimum. Much of that credit goes to our passers for delivering the ball effectively and our setter, Vicky Arriola, who did a great job of running the offense.

"We struggled to beat Millikin in four close sets about a month ago, so winning in three this time as convincingly as we did is another indication of how much our team has improved this year."
