LW Volleyball continues winning ways, beats Cumberlands 3-0
Season record now perfect 16-0
Upcoming - Lindsey Wilson Volleyball hosts Life (GA) at 11amCT, Saturday, September 30, 2017, at Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive, Columbia, KY.
By Chris Wells, SID, Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - (Thu 28 Sep 2017) No. 3 Lindsey Wilson volleyball showed little rust in a three-set sweep of visiting Cumberlands (KY) on Thursday at Biggers Sports Center.
The Blue Raiders - playing for the first time in eight days -- produced their 12th match of hitting at least .300 as a team in a 25-14, 25-9, 25-16 win. Lindsey Wilson concluded the night hitting .352 with 44 kills and just 13 errors in the match.
The Lindsey Wilson defense was not bad either. The Blue Raiders recorded eight team blocks -- three solos and 10 assisted blocks -- while limiting the Patriots to a .013 team hitting percentage.
Lindsey Wilson (16-0, 6-0 in the Mid-South Conference) never trailed in the opening set.
The Blue Raiders methodically pulled away from the Patriots (7-8, 1-4) beginning in the middle of the set after a back-and-forth start. Elly Burke, Grace Blomstedt, Madison Molitor and Klara Mikelova all provided a kill during a 7-3 run to push the Blue Raiders to a 21-13 lead. Mikelova and Molitor combined for a block and Peyton Johnston added a service ace in the spurt.
Burke, Paulina Sobolewska, Lexie Hamrick provided the final three points -- all kills -- to send Lindsey Wilson to the 25-14 first-set win.
Lindsey Wilson was dominant in all aspects in the second set, leading by as many as 15 points in the 25-9 win.
A pair of Mikelova kills and another from Blomstedt -- who led the team with 12 in the match -- fueled an 11-2 run to open the set. The Blue Raider defense never allowed the Patriots to get anything going offensively, limiting Cumberlands to a -.067 attacking set. It was one of two negative hitting sets on the night for the Patriots.
The Lindsey Wilson block dominated the third set. One solo and eight block assists powered the Blue Raiders into recording their 15th sweep of the season.
Blomstedt proved why she is an all-American in the set with six kills and three blocks. Hamrick provided an offensive punch in the set with six of her seven kills coming in the final frame of the evening to help Lindsey Wilson win its 58th consecutive match in Biggers.
In addition to leading the team in kills, Blomstedt also recorded a team-high .647 attacking percentage. Sobolewska -- who had 10 kills -- hit .526 while Hamrick boasted a .455 attack.
Makenzie Montano led the Blue Raiders with 36 assists. She added a pair of blocks and a kill from her setter position. Sobolewska led the team with nine digs while Burke and Caitlyn Tino added eight in the win.
Cumberlands' Jessica Severs and Abbie Genders led the Patriots with four kills each. Lynsey Short finished with 14 assists.
