Volleyball: LWC sweeps Tennessee Southern

By Kyle Jackson

The Lindsey Wilson Volleyball team got back to winning ways Tuesday evening sweeping Tennessee Southern 3-0 (25-18, 25-15, 25-19) for the second time this season. The sweep is the 12th of the season for the Blue Raiders and the sixth against a conference opponent this year.

The Blue Raiders hit a .415 in the match compared to the Firehawks .134 on the night. Lindsey Wilson outkilled the Firehawks 44-31 in the match with Tennessee Southern giving up 18 attack errors in the game.

Johanna Alcantara led the way once again recording 17 kills in the victory while Radaisy Valdez added 11 of her own. Camryn Rich had 42 assists in the match while Lauren Larzelere led the way in digs accumulating 11 in the contest.

Lindsey Wilson hit the gas pedal to open the match and didn't look back taking an early lead and opening a seven-point gap at one point. With the Blue Raiders hitting at 37 percent, the team racked up 13 kills in 27 attacks to win the set 25-18.

While the hitting took a slight drop for Lindsey Wilson in the second set, it didn't stop the Blue Raiders from controlling the game. Lindsey Wilson outkilled the Firehawks 16-8 in the second set with Alcantara and Valdez racking up four kills each in the set to win it 25-15.

With the game on the line, the Firehawks gave it everything they could to stay in the game and held Lindsey Wilson to within a point for the majority of the third set. The Blue Raiders only led by two points near the end of the third set but thanks to kills from Alexis Smith, Alcantara, and Valdez, plus an ace from Larzelere, Lindsey Wilson was able to see off the pressure from the Firehawks to win the match 3-0.

The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team returns to Biggers Sports Center again on Friday, October 15th against Cumberland (TN). First serve is set for 6pmCT.
