"I was very proud of the way our team played this past weekend," Lincoln College coach Mark Tippett said. "We faced some tough competition and responded with our best volleyball of the year. Our passing game returned to form, and that allowed our offense to work much more smoothly than it has in the past couple of weeks. We were able to control the flow of the matches we won, and our losses were hard-fought to the end.

"It was great to see our players working together as a team and having fun. We took a big step forward as a team this weekend, which should give us a lot of confidence as we head into the second half of the season."
