LC Coach Mark Tippett: Our team took several big steps forward this weekend.  The passers really stepped up and did a much better job of delivering passes that we could turn into offensive opportunities.  Both of our setters were able to consistently find open hitters which gave our front row players the chance to show what they can do.  We were pushed hard by the teams we played this weekend and had to perform under pressure in order to win.  I am seeing a lot of progress in this group and it is satisfying to have the work they are putting in during practice show up on the court.  We still struggled with missed serves and defensive intensity at times this weekend, but our athleticism and improved communication helped us overcome these challenges.

Lincoln will host Conference and Region opponent Danville Area CC on Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm.
