LC Coach Mark Tippett: This was a very frustrating way to end the season. We started out tight and nervous in the first set, but sets two and three showed that we were the stronger team. Lewis and Clark did not give up in set four and I think we were surprised by the fact that they kept playing hard. We tightened up again and let them back in the match through serving errors and mental mistakes. Our team represented Lincoln College with class and good sportsmanship all year long. I am proud of how much we improved over the course of the year.
