LC Coach Mark Tippett: I was very disappointed in the effort our team put forth in the first two sets. We did not play with much intensity on defense and made several careless mistakes that led to easy points for our opponent. The main problem was our poor passing out of serve receive. In set three we passed better and started to play the kind of defense needed to compete. It is too bad we had to wait until the third set to start playing at the level needed to win against a quality team like LLCC. If we had started the contest that way, I believe it would have been a close match. We will be working hard to correct this issue in practice this week.
Lincoln College will host a triangular set of matches on Saturday. LC will play SWIC at 10 am and Oakton CC at 2:00 pm.
