Volleyball: LWC remains perfect in conference play
By Kyle Jackson
Lebanon, TN - The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team (11-2, 4-0 MSC) remained undefeated in conference play Friday afternoon in a comeback victory in five sets over Cumberland (TN) (13-4, 2-2 MSC).
Johanna Alcantara led the way once again for Lindsey Wilson recording 15 kills in the match while Alix Stoermer had 14 kills and 10 assisted blocks. Camryn Rich collected 39 assists and 13 digs as the team hit a .253 on the afternoon.
Both teams opened the match with scoring runs in the first set with Lindsey Wilson starting the scoring first.
As the set progressed, the two teams would swap the lead multiple times before Alcantara hit back-to-back kills to win the first set 26-24.
The Blue Raiders faced a rapid response from the Phoenix in the second set with the home side going on a scoring run to begin play. The Tennessee based team were leading by 10 points in the middle portion of the set before Lindsey Wilson found their momentum again, cutting the lead to within three points late in the set. The comeback saw the Blue Raiders tie the set at 23 and 24 all before Cumberland finished things off with a 26-24 victory to tie the overall score.
The Phoenix carried the momentum from their second set victory into the third as once again they built a substantial lead on the Blue Raiders. Just like the set before, Lindsey Wilson kept pushing looking to cut the Phoenix lead, getting within a point before Cumberland won 25-23 to take a 2-1 lead in the match.
Lindsey Wilson, with their undefeated conference record on the line, had to win the fourth set to stay alive and they did, but not without a fight from the Phoenix who stuck tight with the Blue Raiders all throughout the set. The end of the set saw five lead changes with the teams tying the match six times before a couple of errors from the Phoenix won the set for Lindsey Wilson, tying the match at 2-2. The Blue Raiders hit a .341 in the set, their highest hitting percentage for a single set in the match.
For the first time this season, the Blue Raiders were forced into fifth set action. After winning the previous set, Lindsey Wilson was riding a wave of momentum as they jumped out to a 7-2 lead to begin the set. The Blue Raiders held onto that momentum as they went on to win the set 15-11 and the match 3-2.
The Blue Raiders return home next week to host Bethel (TN) on September 21st. First serve is set for 6pmCT.
