LWC Volleyball stays atop MSC with sweep over Pikeville
By Kyrin Mayfield
A season-high hit percentage of .466 helped the Lindsey Wilson volleyball team sweep Pikeville (KY) on Wednesday at the Biggers Sports Center.
The victory improved the Blue Raiders' (6-1, 4-0 Mid-South Conference) all-time record against the Bears (2-4, 0-3 MSC) to 40-1.
It was a competitive start to the first set with both teams trading points back and forth. Neither squad claimed consecutive points until after the eighth serve. With Lindsey Wilson leading just 7-5, the Blue Raiders surged ahead and outscored Pikeville 18-8 until the conclusion of the set. Lindsey Wilson won the first game 25-13 with an astounding .640 hit percentage.
For the first time in the match, the Bears jumped out to a lead of 2-0 to begin the second set. However, the Blue Raiders kept pace with Pikeville and retook the lead with an advantage of 8-7. Both teams once again traded point after point with Lindsey Wilson only able to grow the lead to two points just past the halfway mark. Up 17-15, the Blue Raiders went on an 8-1 run thanks to four kills from Alix Stoermer and four attack errors by the Bears for a 25-16 second-set win.
Lindsey Wilson dominated the third set. After taking a 6-1 lead, the Blue Raiders never looked back. Eventually, Lindsey Wilson won the final game 25-8 to sweep Pikeville, the largest set win this season.
Stoermer led the Blue Raiders in kills for the first time this season with 15 in the match and Alexis Smith recorded 11. Camryn Rich accumulated 40 assists, her second-highest total this year. Natalie Ackermann and Lauren Larzelere each totaled double-digit digs with 13 and 11. Additionally, Peyton Johnston garnered three aces, two of which came in the third set.
Lindsey Wilson resumes play tomorrow against Cumberlands (KY) at the Biggers Sports Center with a first serve of 7 p.m. CT.
