Lincolnwood Takes Second At Waverly Tourney

Posted

It's hard to beat a good team three times as the saying goes and that proved true on Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Waverly Volleyball Tournament.

Lincolnwood owned two wins against North Mac going into Saturday's championship game with the Panthers, but the third time was the charm for North Mac, who won the Waverly Tournament over the Lancers with a 25-14, 25-16 final score.

Cassie Krager led Lincolnwood in points, with five, while also adding an ace. On the attack, Katelyn Payne finished with four kills, while Madison Krager and Cassie Krager had three each. Avery Pope led the team in assists with seven.

Defensively, Lexie Millburg had 12 digs, while Sidney Glick added nine. Payne had the only block in the loss, just the eighth of the year for the Lancers.

The loss was the only blemish on an otherwise successful weekend for Lincolnwood, who went 3-0-1 in pool play.

The tie came in the opening game against Greenfield-Northwestern as the two teams split 25-17 in favor of the Tigers and 25-18 in favor of the Lancers.

Cassie Krager posted ten digs, while Lexie Millburg and Maggie McClelland had nine each on the defensive end. McClelland also had two blocks, while Katelyn Payne added one.

Payne also led the team in kills, with seven, while Madison Krager and Cassie Krager had six each. Avery Pope led the team in assists with 12. Cassie Krager was the team's leading server against the Tigers, with eight points and three kills.

Lincolnwood's first win of the tournament came against South County's JV, who subbed in for an absent Carrollton. The Lancers would win in straight sets, 25-4, 25-8.

Avery Pope served up a storm with 13 points and six aces, while Maggie McClelland added ten points. Cassie Krager led the attack with 13 kills, with Katelyn Payne also putting down a half dozen spikes. Pope led the team in assists with 15.

Defensively, McClelland led the way with seven, followed by Glick with four. Cassie Krager finished with three digs and the team's only block.

Varsity competition fared no better against the Lancers in pool play as they dispatched Pittsfield 25-17, 25-21.

Cassie Krager led the attack with nine kills and ten assists, while Madison Krager chipped in eight kills. Avery Pope led the team in assists with 16 and was the leading server with nine points and an ace.

Defensively, Cassie Krager had three blocks and nine digs, while Lexie Millburg added 11 digs to lead Lincolnwood. Sidney Glick also had eight digs, while Avery Pope and Maggie McClelland added blocks.

In their final game of pool play, Lincolnwood scored another 25-17, 52-21 victory, this time over Augusta Southeastern to clinch their spot in the championship game.

Katelyn Payne put down ten kills, while Madison Krager and Cassie Krager added eight each. Avery Pope would lead the team in assists, with 17, while Cassie Krager added 12. Sidney Glick led a solid serving game with six points and an ace, while Maggie McClelland (five), Cassie Krager (five) and Kyra Shull (four) also contributed to the point total and had an ace apiece.

Defensively, Lexie Millburg led the team in digs with 17, while Cassie Krager had 11 digs and four blocks.

For her excellence and versatility, Cassie Krager was named to the all-tournament team, with Maggie McClelland joining her on the list.

Lincolnwood will close out the regular season on Monday, Oct. 28, at home, where they will take on Pawnee. It will be senior night for the Lancers, who will honor Madison Krager and Kyra Shull before the game.
