Volleyball: LWC defeats Bethel, unbeaten in conference play
By Christopher Webster
The No. 13-ranked Lindsey Wilson volleyball team completed its 10th sweep of the season to stay undefeated in conference action as they beat Bethel (TN) in three sets Tuesday night.
Madison Bidwell led the attack for the Blue Raiders as she finished with a team-high eight kills. Camyrn Rich totaled 14 assists while Abby Grubbs finished the night with a double-double, recording 12 assists and 12 digs.
Lindsey Wilson (13-2, 6-0 MSC) forced Bethel (6-4, 0-3 MSC) to a .153 hitting percentage. The Blue Raiders and Wildcats had 37 kills each.
The opening set was back-and-forth throughout. Lindsey Wilson and Bethel traded scores until it was tied at seven. The Wildcats scored the next two points on back-to-back kills to take the early lead. Bethel extended its lead to four points, but the Blue Raiders rallied as they went on a 7-3 run on the heels of kills from Bidwell and Johanna Alcantara to even the match at 17. Bidwell put Lindsey Wilson out in front with three kills and the Blue Raiders won the first set 25-23. Bidwell recorded six kills in the opening set.
The beginning of the second set mirrored much of the first as both teams traded points. Kills by Savannah Pippin and Radaisy Valdez pushed the Blue Raiders out to a small 4-1 lead early. However, the Wildcats clawed back as they scored the next two points. This back-and-forth trend continued through the early part of the set as the score was tied at nine. After breaking the tie on a kill by Bidwell, the Blue Raiders extended their lead to four with help of a pair of kills by Valdez and a kill from Alix Stoermer. The Wildcats trimmed the lead to two with two kills by Hannah McGowan as the Blue Raiders lead 15-13. A trio of Bethel attack errors and a kill by Valdez gave Lindsey Wilson the cushion it was fighting for during the set and the Blue Raiders grabbed a 25-20 win in the second set. The Blue Raiders forced Bethel to a .125 hitting percentage in set number two.
The Blue Raiders had control of the final set of the night as they jumped out to an 11-4 lead. Bethel attempted to cut into the deficit, but the damage was already done as Lindsey Wilson kept its commanding lead throughout the final set as they coasted to a 25-16 victory to take the set and the match.
The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team continues Mid-South Conference action as they battle No. 18-ranked Life (GA) on Thursday at Biggers Sports Center. First serve is set for 6pmCT.
