[SEPT. 22, 2003]  Rosie Miller had a run of 14 straight points to lead Lincoln College to victory against Black Hawk East at Lincoln Saturday by the scores of 30-23, 30-17, 28-30, 30-26.

"This was a great win for us as they beat us last week in their gym," said Lincoln coach Mark Tippett. "We showed a great deal of improvement in all areas. Rosie was outstanding with her serve today. She and Kristin (Majka) really made it tough on BHE by moving the ball around and taking them out of their offense."

Kaskaskia Community College then defeated Lincoln by scores of 36-34, 22-30, 30-20, 25-30, 15-10. Kaskaskia had defeated Black Hawk East earlier by scores of 30-27, 30-26, 30-28.

"The KCC match was frustrating, as we let big leads slip away late in two of the games we lost," Tippett said. "This was a match we should have won. I am hoping the girls will learn from this and put teams away when we have a chance and not let ourselves get too tight when a team starts coming back.

"Despite the loss, I was pleased with our effort. We are definitely developing better team chemistry and showing that we have what it takes to be competitive."

Miller finished the day with 40 points, five aces and eight digs, while Majka recorded 24 points, seven aces and 31 kills. Samantha McCoy contributed 19 points and 10 digs, while Jessica Livezey had 16 points and 11 kills. Maggie Noldan had a total of 65 set assists and 10 points for the Lynx.

Lincoln College, 2-7 on the season, will be at Lewis and Clark for a match Monday.
