COLUMBIA, KY - The No. 1-ranked Lindsey Wilson volleyball team takes on Cumberland (TN) Thursday, October 26, 2017, at 6:30pmCT at Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive, Columbia, KY, in the regular season home finale.
Prior to first serve, eight senior student-athletes will be honored on senior night, six varsity members and two junior varsity student-athletes. Caitlyn Tino, Yeniffer Ramirez, Makenzie Montano, Carolynne Silva, Madison Molitor and Lauren Streets represent the varsity squad, while Crystal Hodges and Morgan Johnson represent the junior varsity team.
Based on results from around the conference on Tuesday, Lindsey Wilson clinched the outright Mid-South Conference regular season title. The Blue Raiders have just two conference games remaining, while second-place Georgetown (KY) and third-place Campbellsville (KY) both already have three losses in conference play. The title is the fifth-consecutive regular season crown for LWC and the sixth in the previous seven years.
The Blue Raiders (23-0, 12-0 Mid-South Conference) last defeated Shawnee State (Ohio) 3-0 on Saturday for their 20th-consecutive sweep. Lindsey Wilson hit .364 in the match and limited the Bears to a .039 hitting percentage. The Blue Raider defense recorded six team blocks, 10 service aces and 61 digs in the match. On the season, LWC has only dropped one set, winning 22 of their 23 matches in straight sets.
Montano leads the MSC and is seventh in the NAIA after averaging 11.1 assists per set for the year. Grace Blomstedt has the highest hitting percentage in the NAIA at .540 and ranks 12th in blocks per set (1.2). The Blue Raiders rank second in the NAIA in hitting percentage (.350), sixth in kills per set (14.3) and 18th in blocks per set (2.3).
Cumberland (14-11, 5-6 MSC) comes into the match after defeating Pikeville (Ky.) on Saturday 3-0, where the Phoenix hit .300 and recorded 39 kills. Isidora Markovic led the team with 10 kills as Sara Glassman tallied 19 assists in the match. Markovic has the fifth-best hitting percentage in the MSC at .289.
The meeting between Lindsey Wilson and Cumberland is the 50th all-time as the Blue Raiders are 33-16 and 12-7 when playing at Biggers Sports Center. This is the second matchup this season as Lindsey Wilson swept the Phoenix earlier in the year 3-0 (25-13, 25-21, 25-14).
