LC Coach Mark Tippett: I was very pleased with the consistency our team showed this weekend.  We served well, played a disciplined game on defense, and showed that when we pass the ball to target our hitters can put it away. Much of the credit for that goes to our setter, sophomore Vicky Arriola, who is doing an outstanding job of running the offense.  It took a week or so to find the right line-up and system for this group of players, but our success this weekend certainly indicates we are on the right track.   

Lincoln College will host Parkland College on Wednesday evening for a 6:00 pm match.
