Volleyball: LWC sweeps TN Southern

By Austin Hall

Pulaski, TN - The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team (10-2, 3-0 MSC) remained undefeated in conference play after a sweep over Tennesee Southern (TN) (9-5, 0-3 MSC) in three sets Tuesday night.

Johanna Alcantara dominated once again for the Blue Raiders hitting 11 kills in the game while both Alcantara and Radaisy Valdez recorded two solo blocks in the match. Camryn Rich recorded 23 assists and two blocks with Lauren Larzelere kept things alive with 13 digs in the match. Lindsey Wilson produced 33 kills and hit a .136 total in the match.

The Firehawks only hit a .093 in the match with Maca Ruiz producing 11 kills and two blocks. Laura Howell had 22 assists in the match while Summer Jackson recorded 10 digs for the Tennessee based team.

In the opening set, the Blue Raiders kept a manageable lead, but struggled to get away from the FireHawks until a 15-5 run late in the set made sure of the eventual 25-18 opening set victory. Lindsey Wilson produced a hitting percentage of .348 in the first set after knocking down 13 kills in the opening set, the highest hitting percentage of the game for the Blue Raiders.

As things progressed into the second set it was still too close for comfort for the Blue Raiders as Tennessee Southern were doing everything they could to pressure the Lindsey Wilson into a mistake. The Blue Raiders hitting percentage took a knock as a result of that pressure only putting up a .057 in the second set with 6 errors. With the score tied 18-18 late in the 2nd, a 7-3 run helped the Blue Raiders pull away and secure the second set 25-21.

Just like the two previous sets before, the third set proved to be a close one between the two sides with the score remaining tied through a large portion of the set. Towards the end of the set, Tennessee Southern saw their moment to extend the game leading 24-23 and on match point. The Blue Raiders were not going to let that happen as they went on to score the last three points of the set to win 26-24 and get the 3-0 victory.

Lindsey Wilson continues conference play with their next match taking place on the road against Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee on September 17th. First serve is scheduled for 1 p.m. CT.
