By Kyle Jackson

Pikeville, KY - The No. 22-ranked Lindsey Wilson volleyball team recorded their 17th sweep and 20th win of the season after they defeated Pikeville (KY) 3-0 Tuesday evening. This is the program's 11th straight 20-win season and their 14th overall.

The Blue Raiders (19-5, 11-3 MSC) hit .299 in the match compared to the Bears (5-24, 2-13 MSC) .021 on the day, out killing the hosts 38-23 while also recording 13 total blocks in the match.

Elizabeth Moore had another outstanding evening for the Blue Raiders recording eight kills in the match while Camryn Rich had 29 assists and recently named Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week, Lauren Larzelere had 14 digs in the contest. Radaisy Valdez finished the night with four block assists.

The Blue Raiders got off to a quick start in the opening set jumping out to a 3-0 lead on the Bears to begin play. The Bears got within a point of the lead numerous times in the set but could not overcome the Blue Raiders offense due to their seven errors in the set. Lindsey Wilson went on to win the set 25-16 after hitting a .308 to open the contest.

Into the second set, the Blue Raiders once again jumped out to a quick lead to begin things as a couple of kills from Valdez opened a 2-0 lead for the Blue Raiders. The Bears quickly adjusted to the fast start tying the game at 2-2 for the first time all night thanks to a kill from Hunter Clewis and a set error from Rich. The Blue Raiders didn't let the push back from Pikeville bother them as they went on to outkill the Bears 15-5 in the set to win 25-13.

Lindsey Wilson found no issue closing the game out as the Bears hit a negative .560 and committed 11 errors to help the Blue Raiders to a 25-14 victory and their 17th sweep of the season.

The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team will conclude regular season play on November 6th against Cumberlands (KY). First serve is set for 4pmCT.
