By Kyle Jackson

Campbellsville, KY - In a tightly contested match the No. 16-ranked Lindsey Wilson volleyball team (14-4, 7-2 MSC) lost the Battle of Highway 55 in four sets (22-25, 25-20, 23-25, 23-25) to rival Campbellsville University (16-4, 7-2 MSC) Thursday evening.

The Blue Raiders hit a .286 in the match compared to the Tigers .189 on the night. Lindsey Wilson was nearly outkilled by the Tigers 55-59 in the match with the Tigers winning the errors category 26-13.

Johanna Alcantara recorded another double-double tonight with 13 kills and 13 digs. Madison Bidwell added 11 kills for the Blue Raiders while recording six block assists. Camryn Rich also had a double-double on the night with a perfect 40 assists and 20 digs.

It was a back-and-forth opening set to start things off on the evening with the atmosphere being a big factor for both sides. The Tigers fed off that momentum from the home crowd to open the match and propelled themselves to a 22-25 first set win. Into the second set, the Blue Raiders didn't let the crowd get to them and remained focused on the task at hand. Alcantara, Bidwell, and Valdez all shared four kills each to win the set 25-20 and tie the game at 1-1.

The Blue Raiders were doing well into the third set and held a five-point advantage in the middle portion of the set. Once again, with the crowd at their backs, the Tigers rallied and put together a comeback to take set three after going on a couple of scoring runs to close the set, winning it 25-23 taking a 2-1 advantage into set four.

Lindsey Wilson got off to a four-point lead into the fourth set and looked to have the momentum to force a set five to close things out. The Tigers didn't let that happen, rallying once again to tie the game at 13, going back and forth before eventually taking it 25-23 and winning the game with a final score of 3-1.

The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team returns home to Biggers Sports Center next week for another conference match against Tennessee Southern on October 12th. First serve is set for 6pmCT.
