Lancers Take Third At Home Away From Home

Posted

It was a successful weekend at the Lincolnwood-Morrisonville volleyball team’s home away from home as the Lancers went 3-1 to finish third at the Morrisonville Tournament.

The Lancers were in the Red Pool along with Bunker Hill, Mascoutah, Mulberry Grove and Lovejoy, who backed out and gave the Lancers a forfeit win right off the bat.

Lincolnwood also collected victories over Bunker Hill by a 25-16, 25-19 final score and over Mulberry Grove by a 25-11, 25-3 final score. Sidney Glick had 15 service points and four aces in the win over the Minutemaids while also leading the team with eight digs. Hailee Belsher had seven digs and a team-best 10 kills in the win over Bunker Hill, with Tessa Funderburk leading the team in assists with 10.

Appropriately enough, serving was key for the Lancers in the win over the Aces of Mulberry Grove as Lincolnwood posted 16 serving aces in the game. Haelee Damm had seven of those aces and 20 serving points to lead the way, while Belsher put down 11 kills, with Avery Pope setting up 11 assists.

Lincolnwood’s only loss in pool play came against Class 3A Mascoutah, who is currently 22-6 on the season. The Lancers would fall 25-20, 25-16 in the match with the Indians, despite eight kills and 11 digs from Belsher.

The 3-1 mark moved the Lancers on to the third place game, where they would play Hillsboro, who was also 3-1. Lincolnwood dispatched the Toppers in two games, 25-11, 25-14, to claim third place.

Desi Pitchford set the pace from the serving line for the Lancers, serving up 17 points and six aces. Belsher also came through big, putting down 17 kills with eight digs.

Belsher would go on to earn all-tournament honors for the third time this year, as she also received the honor at the New Berlin tournament and the  Montgomery County Invite.

The four wins at Morrisonville upped the Lancers’ record to 21-4, marking the seventh straight year (not including last year’s COVID-shortened season) that the Lancers have earned a spot on the 20-win banner at the Woodshed at Lincolnwood High School.

In the 48 years of Lincolnwood volleyball, the Lancers have 22 seasons of 20 wins or more, with their next victory set to be number 950 in the program’s history.
