COLUMBIA, KY - Indiana Southeast went down hard in the first set 25-7, then hung around in the next two before Lindsey Wilson College finished it off with 25-18 and 25-22 wins to make senior night a shutout success.

The 3-0 win was the Blue Raiders' 17th shutout of the season as Courtney Doyle and Kailey Moorhead were too much for the Grenadiers to handle with 12 kills each.

Seniors Alyssa Cuthbert, Kristi Hager, Ashlie Haworth, Angela Mlachnik and Andrea Taylor were honored prior to the match before they each played a role in the win.

Taylor finished with a match-high 39 assists, Hager led all players with 18 digs, Haworth finished third on the team with five kills, Mlachnik had a match-best three service aces and Cuthbert delivered five serves without an error.

Moorhead was flying around the court all night, making things difficult on IU Southeast which finished with a .070 hitting percentage. Moorhead led the defense with six blocks, while also coming up with three digs.

Sara Schum posted double-figures for the Grenadiers with 10 kills for a .333 percentage, but got little help from her teammates. Meaghen Tompkins finished with 20 assists and Kristen Newberry found 15 digs. Lindsey Wilson hit .299 as team, getting a big boost in the opening set when it posted a .500 mark, connecting on 13 of its 22 swings with just two errors. The Blue Raiders went on a 7-0 run at 4-3 and allowed IU Southeast just four more points the rest of the set.

The Grenadiers led briefly in the second frame at 3-2, but Lindsey Wilson pulled ahead by as many as eight points before Moorhead closed out the set with a kill at 25-18.

Playing about as evenly as possible, IU Southeast had its best chance to steal a set in the third. There were 17 ties with neither team taking a lead bigger than three points. The set was tied as late as 21-21 on a kill by the Grenadiers' Lindsey Maymon, but four of the next five points went in the Blue Raiders' direction.

There is one match left in the regular season for Lindsey Wilson, away, before the Mid-South Conference Championships, starting on November 9, at the MidAmerica Sports Center, 906 Watterson Trail, Louisville, KY. Lindsey Wilson's opponent in the opening round and start time of the match will be released at the conclusion of the regular season.
