[OCT. 6, 2003]  DECATUR -- Lincoln College defeated Illinois College JV 21-30, 30-21, 30-28, 30-25 at Millikin University Saturday. The Lynx lost to Millikin in their opening match, which Millikin won by scores of 30-16, 30-16, 27-30, 30-17.

Jessica Livezey had a total of 15 points and eight kills on the day for the Lynx, while Rosie Miller chipped in with 12 points and 21 set assists. Kristin Majka recorded 10 points and 16 kills, Lacey Jones had 10 kills and four blocks, and Ashley Hanson contributed with 13 digs.

"Once again we got off to a slow start against Millikin, but we came on strong in the third game and that kind of carried over into our match against Illinois College," said Lincoln coach Mark Tippett. "We passed the ball pretty well and played together as a team. Our effort was excellent, and hopefully this will help us when we play conference opponent Lincoln Land in our next match."

Lincoln College, 5-11, is at home Wednesday at 6 p.m. against Lincoln Land. The Lynx lost in three games to Lincoln Land in September.
