LWC Volleyball sweeps Bethel in MSC Tournament
By Kyrin Mayfield
Bowling Green, KY - The No. 1-seed Lindsey Wilson volleyball team started postseason play with a sweep against No. 8-seed Bethel (TN) at the Mid-South Conference Volleyball Tournament quarterfinals on Thursday. It was the third meeting of the season between the two programs, and the Blue Raiders came away victorious each time.
Set one saw Lindsey Wilson jump out to a 4-1 lead due to three attack errors by Bethel. Eventually, the Blue Raiders went up 18-8 after a 4-0 run fueled by a trio of well-placed sets from Camryn Rich to three different hitters.The Wildcats called a timeout to kill the momentum, but Lindsey Wilson continued to attack and won the set 25-11.
In the second set, the Blue Raiders once again took command early on. Bethel secured the opening point, but Lindsey Wilson rattled off five points in a row, two of which resulted from kills by Madison Bidwell, to go up 5-1.
The Blue Raiders continued to pull away throughout the set and reached a lead of 17-8. Natalie Ackermann's back-to-back aces helped spur a 5-0 run by Lindsey Wilson as the Blue Raiders took set two 25-10, the largest set win over Bethel this season.
Both teams traded points to begin the third set until the score was tied at 8-8. However, the Blue Raiders used their mid-set magic to surge ahead 11-8.
A few points later, Lindsey Wilson stepped on the gas with a 7-0 run composed of three kills, with two from Sandra Szczepanska, two aces by Jasmine Whited, and a pair of Wildcat attack errors. The 20-11 lead was enough of a cushion as the Blue Raiders took the set 25-14 and earned the sweep.
Lindsey Wilson notched a hit percentage of .329, its third highest in a single match this season, and limited Bethel to -.086, the Wildcats' lowest hit percentage in a game on the year.
