Volleyball: LWC wins 7th straight MSC Tournament
By Kyle Jackson
Bowling Green, KY - The No. 23-ranked and No. 2-seeded Lindsey Wilson volleyball team captured their 7th straight and 9th overall Mid-South tournament championship with a 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-23) upset sweep over top seeded Life (GA) on Saturday afternoon.
The Blue Raiders (24-5, 13-3 MSC) hit a .402 in the match compared to Life's .257. The Running Eagles had the advantage on kills in the match nearly outkilling the Blue Raiders 49-45, but it was their errors that got the best of the overall seed, as they had 20 in the match compared to Lindsey Wilson's six.
Johanna Alcantara had another massive game for the Blue Raiders leading the team with 15 kills. Camryn Rich had 36 assists in the match while Abby Grubbs had nine digs in the match.
The Blue Raiders came out hot getting off to a 4-0 run to begin the first set. The lead only continued to grow as Lindsey Wilson hit a .433 and never trailed to the Running Eagles winning set one 25-22.
Into the second set, where the Blue Raiders once again got off to a great lead scoring three straight unanswered points to begin the set. The Running Eagles stuck around tying the match seven times but never gaining the lead. Madison Bidwell capped off a three-point scoring run to help win the set 25-21.
Into the final set where it was the Running Eagles this time who got off to a good start scoring four unanswered points. It was looking grim for the Blue Raiders as the Running Eagles got out to a five-point advantage at 17-12. A combination of four errors and a kill from Alcantara tied things at 18-18 before the teams shared points to be tied at 23-23. A kill by Alexis Smith and an attacking error from Life at the end gave the Blue Raiders the 25-23 set win and 21st sweep of the season as they hit a .583 to finish the game.
The Mid-South Conference tournament champions now turn their attention to the NAIA playoffs. They'll learn who their next opponent will be in the NAIA Selection Show scheduled for Monday, November 15, 2021, at 10amCT.
