Lady Lancers Take Third At Morrisonville Tourney

Posted

With so much cooperation between the two districts, some of the venom has been taken out of the rivalry between Lincolnwood and Morrisonville. That doesn't mean there isn't a little spark left in it though, as the third place game of the Morrisonville Volleyball Tournament showed on Saturday, Oct. 5.

The Lancers and Mohawks went head-to-head for three sets, with the orange and black pulling out the win in the end by a score of 25-17, 20-25, 15-4.

Coach Kimberly Denney got a balanced performance from her young squad, who improved to 19-6 on the season.

Cassie Krager, Maggie McClelland and Madison Krager combined for 28 kills in the match, with the latter two posting nine each and Cassie Krager leading the way with ten. Avery Pope assisted on 21 of Lincolnwood's 34 kills.

The balance held true on defense as well as Lexie Millburg (13), Sidney Glick (11) and Cassie Krager (11) all had double digit dig totals, while Krager and Katelyn Payne also contributed two blocks apiece.

In their serving game, McClelland led the team with ten points and two aces, while Glick added eight points for the Lancers.

Lincolnwood started the tournament with a 25-21, 25-22 win over Roxana, who finished second in this year’s Montgomery County Invitational earlier this year. Jasmine Vickery would lead the team in serving with seven points and three aces, while Avery Pope and Cassie Krager added six points apiece. On the attack, Katelyn Payne led the team with nine kills, while Cassie Krager added six and Maggie McClelland put down five. Pope would lead the team in assist with 15. Defensively, Payne had five blocks against the Shells, while Cassie Krager (13), Lexie Millburg (12), Glick (nine), Pope (nine) and McClelland (eight) led the team in digs.

Lincolnwood’s other two wins weren’t as close as they downed Lovejoy 25-5, 25-9 and Greenview 25-9, 25-12. In the win over Lovejoy, McClelland served up 12 points and four aces, while Cassie Krager also had four aces and a team-best seven kills. Pope led the team in assists with 13. Katelyn Payne chipped in a block defensively, while Cassie Krager had four digs for the Lancers.

McClelland would have another big day serving in the win over Greenview, serving up 12 points and three aces, while Millburg added eight points and two aces. Cassie Krager led the team in kills with five, while Pope added eight assists. Krager would also have a block, with Katelyn Payne also picking up one, while Glick led the team in digs with seven.

Their only loss in pool play would come against the Taylorville JV squad, 27-25, 22-25, 15-10, which gave the young Tornadoes a berth in Saturday's championship game.

Sidney Glick would lead the team with 12 points and an ace from the service line, while Maggie McClelland (nine) and Katelyn Payne (eight) paced the attack. Avery Pope would have 15 assists in the loss, while Cassie Krager added nine.

Payne would also do work on the defensive end at the net, putting down seven blocks, while Lexie Millburg had 23 digs further from the net.

Junior Cassie Krager also had 13 digs in the loss to Taylorville. Krager, who picked up her 1,000th dig in the game against Greenview, has 1,027 career digs, 28 behind Karly Bruntjen for the most in the program's history.

Lincolnwood will be at Hillsboro for a  Volley for Grace game on Monday, Oct. 7, with a bake sale planned to raise funds for INAD research in honor of Hillsboro eight-year-old Grace Herschelman.
