LWC Volleyball concludes regular season with 4-Set win over CU

By Brady Budke

The (RV) Lindsey Wilson volleyball team got back to its winning ways this afternoon, dropping Mid-South Conference rival Campbellsville University in four sets at Biggers Sports Center.

The Blue Raiders finish the regular season with an overall record of 18-3, including a 14-2 mark in the MSC. The Lady Tigers drop to 17-8 with a 10-5 record in the MSC.

On offense, Radaisy Valdez led the team with 13 kills, followed behind by Alexis Smith with 11. Camryn Rich garnered her 11th double-double of the season, leading the way with 39 assists while adding 12 digs.

Defensively, Abby Grubbs garnered a team-high 17 digs followed by Lauren Larzelere with 15. Valdez corralled two solo blocks to lead LWC at the net.

Set one of the match was all Campbellsville, who took it by an easy mark of 25-16. The Lady Tigers leaned on a 5-0 scoring run early to help create a scoring cushion, which shifted momentum away from the Blue Raiders.

Lindsey Wilson turned it around in set two, claiming victory at 25-15. Despite the set beginning as a back-and-forth contest, it was LWC who rolled out six unanswered points to create space away from CU. Jasmine Whited served during five of the six points, notching a service ace in the process.

Much like the result of set two, the Blue Raiders produced another 25-15 victory in set three. A strong start carried the home team to the end, who constructed 16 points before the Lady Tigers could push forward 10 in return.

The fourth and final set came down to the wire, but favored Lindsey Wilson in the end at 25-22. Campbellsville led by as much as three points early on, but the Blue Raiders continued to keep the set close. Tied 19-19 late, LWC leaped forward with a 3-0 scoring run that proved to be the crucial piece in closing out CU.

With the regular season now finished, the Lindsey Wilson volleyball team will return to action at the Mid-South Conference Tournament in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The tournament is slated for April 8-10.
