The Lincolnwood-Morrisonville volleyball team made short work of Gillespie on Monday, Sept. 20, as they inched closer to 20 wins on the year.
The Lancers improved to 15-2 on the season and 6-1 on their home court at the Woodshed in Raymond as they dispatched the Miners 25-9, 25-6 in a speedy victory.
Part of Lincolnwood’s success came from the service line, where the Lancers served up eight aces and 38 points.
Hailee Belsher led both categories with 12 points and three aces, while Sidney Glick had two aces and 10 points. Avery Pope chipped in six points, with Haelee Damm and Desi Pitchford serving up five each, with two and one ace respectively.
On the attack, Belsher and Jazmin Seaton-Hobson had five kills each, while Glick, Pitchford and Damm added two each. Pope and Tessa Funderburk handled setting duties, posting six assists apiece.
Defensively, Belsher came up big at the net with four blocks, while Glick, Pitchford and Funderburk also had a stuff. Jasmine Vickery led the team with seven digs, followed by Damm with four, Pope and Glick with three, Seaton-Hobson with two and Belsher with one.
Lincolnwood will close out the week with one of their toughest tests as they play Lutheran in Springfield. The Crusaders handed the Lancers one of their two losses last Saturday, Sept. 19, in the gold bracket semifinal of the Ray Long Pretzel Classic in New Berlin.
Next week, the Lancers will play at Litchfield on Sept. 27, in a special Dig For A Cure game supporting the Montgomery County Breast Cancer Sport Group. Admission to that evening game will be donated to the support group and there will also be a bake sale benefitting the cause. Game time is 5 p.m. for the freshmen/orange team, with the JV and varsity to follow.
