[MAY 17, 2004]  Victoria Tuttle, daughter of Richard and Lorie Reiners of Emden, and Chelsea Faith, daughter of Debbie and Jay Rogers of Mount Pulaski and David and Sarah Faith of Lincoln, have signed letters of intent to attend Lincoln College in the fall. Tuttle is a recent graduate of Hartsburg-Emden High School and Faith is a 2004 graduate of Mount Pulaski High School. 

Tuttle has the honor of being named the recipient of the Rudy Lolling Sportsmanship Award at Hartem and is a member of the 2003 squad that went to the Sweet 16 under the direction of Hartem High School head volleyball coach Jennifer Hayes. Tuttle played club volleyball for the Illinois Juniors Hartem team in Hartsburg.

Faith played for Mount Pulaski head coach Donna Dulle and was a member of the Class A team that finished in second place with a record of 36-4 in IHSA state tournament play in 2003. Both athletes play the right hitter position.

Lincoln College head volleyball coach Mark Tippett is happy both girls chose the Lynx.  "I'm happy to have two local athletes who come from strong high school programs," he said. "I plan to utilize both players in a two-setter system, which will mean that we will always have a strong offensive and defensive presence at the right-side hitter position. I look forward to working with these two athletes because they know what it takes to win, and I believe they will be solid players as well as team leaders for the next two seasons.

Tuttle and Faith join a list of top LC recruits that also includes all-conference middle hitter Danielle Crum from Belvidere; Erica Lill, a 6-foot middle hitter from Bolingbrook; and Amber Stewart, a 5-foot-10 outside hitter from Oquawka. These incoming players will join sophomore outside hitter Kristin Majka, who received CCCI first-team all-conference honors last season, and sophomore Samantha McCoy, last season's leader in digs, as part of the Lady Lynx squad next season.
