LC Volleyball Go 1-2 Over Weekend But Earn Home Game In Playoffs
The Lincoln College Volleyball team went 1-2 in play this past weekend, with the lone victory having a significant impact on their post-season outlook. On Friday evening, the team traveled to Centralia, IL to take on Kaskaskia College. Both teams wore pink uniforms and all proceeds from the match were donated to breast cancer research. Lincoln College lost the match to KC (28-11) in five sets 25-18, 22-25, 29-27, 18-25, 9-15.
On Saturday, Lincoln participated in a triangular set of matches at Region 24 opponent Rend Lake College in Ina, IL. LC defeated the host school in their first match, again in five sets. This time the Lady Lynx got off to a slow start, dropping the first set 15-25. In sets two and three, Lincoln woke up and dominated the Lady Warriors by scores of 25-16 and 25-15. Rend Lake rebounded in set four to take a commanding lead at 20-14, but Lincoln made things interesting by going on a 7 point run to take the lead 21-20. From there the teams traded side outs and potential set points all the way up to a score of 32-32. The last two points fell Rend Lake’s way though, and they won the set 34-32 to force a deciding set to 15. In the final set, Lincoln roared out to a 9-1 advantage and eventually took the set and the match 15-4.
The victory over Rend Lake improved the Lady Lynx’s Region record to 4-3 and secured the #4 seed in the upcoming Region 24 post-season tournament. This will make Lincoln the host site for their first-round match against the #5 seed, Southwestern Illinois College (SWIC) on Wednesday, October 31st. This achievement is special to the LC volleyball program because it will be the first post-season volleyball match played on the campus of Lincoln College in over 20 years. This is due to the fact that prior to the opening of the Lincoln Center in 2010, the campus did not have a facility that met NJCAA minimum requirements for hosting a post-season match. In years where LC has qualified to host a post-season match, they have been required to find an alternative, off-campus site to play.
