News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - The No. 1-ranked Lindsey Wilson volleyball team plays back-to-back Mid-South Conference members this weekend, first against Pikeville (KY) at 4pmCT Friday, followed by Shawnee State (Ohio) at 11amCT Saturday.
During Friday's match against Pikeville, the Blue Raiders will don their pink uniforms in an effort to raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer. The Blue Raiders (21-0, 10-0 MSC) last defeated Life (GA) 3-0 on Friday for their 18th-consecutive sweep. Lindsey Wilson hit .326 in the match and limited the Running Eagles to a -.010 hitting percentage. The Blue Raider defense recorded 10 team blocks, one solo block and 18 blocking assists. On the season, LWC has only dropped one set, winning 20 of their 21 matches in straight sets.
Makenzie Montano was named the MSC Setter of the Week for the fifth time this season and the 15th time in her career. The senior averaged 12.2 assists per set in her two matches last week. Montano leads the MSC and is seventh in the NAIA after averaging 11.1 assists per set for the year.
The Blue Raiders rank second in the NAIA in hitting percentage (.345), fifth in kills per set (14.3) and 15th in blocks per set (2.3). Grace Blomstedt has the highest hitting percentage in the NAIA at .528 and ranks 14th in blocks per set (1.2).
Pikeville (5-17, 0-9 MSC) comes into the match after losing to Campbellsville (KY) on Oct. 12 3-0, where the Bears hit .205 and recorded 29 kills. Savanna Zakman is second in the MSC with 46 service aces while Amari Eadie ranks third in the MSC with 69 blocks on the season.
The meeting between the Blue Raiders and the Bears is the 34th all-time. Lindsey Wilson is 32-1 against Pikeville and is a perfect 13-0 all-time against the Bears at Biggers Sports Center. This is the second matchup this season as Lindsey Wilson swept Pikeville earlier in the year 3-0 (25-8, 25-9, 25-18).
Following the matchup with the Pikeville on Friday, Lindsey Wilson is set to face Shawnee State (6-19, 1-8 MSC) on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT. Shawnee State faces Cumberland (TN) on Friday night before traveling to Columbia, KY, to take on the Blue Raiders. Kristina Shelton leads Shawnee State with 246 kills on the season.
