LC volleyball team opens home season     Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 5, 2003]  Lincoln College opened its home volleyball season Thursday night and lost to Illinois Valley Community College in four sets. The Lynx will be idle until Sept. 9, when they travel to Champaign to take on Parkland.

IVCC won the first two sets against the Lynx Thursday by scores of 30-19 and 30-18.  Lincoln College then took the third set by a 30-24 margin before IVCC took the match in the fourth set 30-24.

"We didn't pass the ball well at all in the first two sets," said coach Mark Tippett.  "We finally got it going in the third set, and as a result we were able to win the set. It was good to see us bounce back and play well after not playing well in the first two sets. Hopefully we will be able to build off of our finish and get things going in the right direction."

Kristin Majka led the Lynx with nine points, two aces and seven kills. Jessica Livezey had six points, four kills and four blocks, while Samantha McCoy came up with 12 digs.
