After falling to Lutheran on Tuesday, the Lincolnwood volleyball team rebounded by clobbering a pair of MSM Conference foes to improve their record to 3-1 on the season.
Wherever you looked on the floor, the Lancers had a standout performance against South County on Thursday, March 25. Serving, hitting, setting and defense all clicked for Lincolnwood as they came away with a 25-14, 25-11 victory.
In the serving game, Sidney Glick racked up 13 points and four aces to lead the way, but others contributed as Lincolnwood posted ten aces on the night.
Avery Pope had seven points and one ace, while Cassie Krager and Lexie Millburg finished with six points and two aces, and five points and three aces, respectively.
On the attack, Katelyn Payne led the way with eight kills, while fellow senior Maggie McClelland put down five. Avery Pope also had three kills, while also leading Lincolnwood in assists with 13.
The Lancer attack may have had more kills had it not been for Ella Prince and Amber Meis, who combined for 25 digs for South County.
Lexie Millburg and Cassie Krager led Lincolnwood’s digging efforts, posting seven and six, while Maggie McClelland added three. McClelland also had three blocks in the game, matching Avery Pope for the team lead.
Lincolnwood followed the win over the Vipers with another one against Edinburg. The Wildcats hung close in game one, 25-22, but Lincolnwood ran away with game two 25-13 to pick up their third win.
The Lancers will try to keep their momentum going on Monday, March 29, when they host Bunker Hill, with a date against North Mac in Virden to follow on Tuesday, March 30.
