On Wednesday, the Lincoln College Women’s Volleyball team traveled to Galesburg, IL to face the Carl Sandburg Chargers. Lincoln was without two of their main offensive weapons for this match due to injuries to outside hitter Kenzie Cooper and right side Mattie Giese.

LC (21-12) was able to remain competitive, but did not have enough firepower to win the match as they fell in four sets (26-24, 25-19, 12-25, 25-21).

Coach Mark Tippett commented after the game. “We hurt ourselves early in the match with missed serves and that cost us the first set and got us down in set two.”  “We played much better in sets three and four, but it was too little too late. Sandburg played hard all night and deserved the win.  Hopefully, we will be back to full strength tomorrow and will be able to get back to playing the way we are capable of playing,” stated Tippett.
