Lincoln ends their regular season with a record of 18-15.

LC coach Mark Tippett commented:

"Playing with a new lineup and players in unfamiliar positions is a rough way to end the season, but we did not have much choice today. Resting Kelly Anderson this weekend gives us the best chance for her to be able to play on Wednesday evening in our first postseason match. The team did not respond well to the changes we made in the early going against Sauk Valley, but in the afternoon match, I was very proud of the effort I saw on the court. We started playing better as a unit, and the result was an entertaining match. Despite the loss, I feel like we left the court feeling good about the experience. I am hopeful we can carry that kind of attitude into our match on Wednesday."

Lincoln College earned the No. 4 seed in the Region 24 postseason tournament. They will host the No. 5 seed, Southwestern Illinois College, at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
