[AUG. 30, 2004]  KEWANEE -- Lincoln College opened its volleyball season with a pair of victories Saturday, as they defeated Southeastern Community College of Burlington, Iowa, in the first match and then stopped Black Hawk East in the second match.

Kristin Majka and Chelsea Faith led the Lynx to victory over Southeastern. Majka had 14 kills, 14 digs and seven points, while Faith had 13 kills, four points and two aces.

Lincoln College needed five games to win the match. The Lynx won the opener 30-23 before dropping the next two, 31-33 and 28-30. LC bounced back to take the fourth game 30-19 and then won the deciding fifth game 16-14.

Samantha McCoy contributed 15 kills in the match, and Rosie Miller had 21 set assists.

Lincoln College defeated Black Hawk East by the scores of 30-21, 26-30, 30-16, 28-30, 15-11.

"We had two tough opponents to start the season, and I was pleased with the way we responded," said LC volleyball coach Mark Tippett. "Defensively, we played a solid match and we were aggressive on offense. Some service errors let a couple of games slip away, but hopefully, we got that out of our system. Last season we had a tough time winning a fifth and deciding game. It is a very positive sign to pick up two wins in such games early in the year."

The Lynx will be at home Tuesday for a match against Lincoln Land, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
