Lady Eagles JV, Varsity edge out Lincoln


October 2, 2019

The Valley Christian Lady Eagles flew into the Lincoln gym Friday night, Sept. 27 to give the Lady Lynx a heated battle on the volleyball court.

Jaylin Lewenight, the standout for the Lynx in the junior varsity sets, made nine ace serves and four of the team's eight kills. The first two sets were close, with Valley winning them 22-25 and 23-25.

The junior varsity Lynx roared back and won the third set 15-11, helped by a key block from Junior Lindsey Weisner. In the important fourth set, Lincoln led through the whole game until the final serve by the Eagles, who made three consecutive points and squeaked out their third and winning set, 12-15.

The varsity match was a give and take with the lead changing eight times. At 25-25 in the first set, the crowd went wild, each side shouting for their team to put the game away, but the Eagles made two more points, and the Lynx lost 25-27. The Lincoln ladies avenged the first set loss with a win in the second set 25-19 and it looked like it might be a competitive night. Set three was a re-run of the opener with the score tied up repeatedly, but once again the Eagles clinched it at the end 21-25. Winning the final set 19-25, the Valley Christian bus drove away with a winning night for the Eagles.

Alexis Cannon and Andrea LaManna kept the Lynx momentum alive with their impressive array of spike kills and blocked balls at the net. Maya Whittenberg had a 100 percent record of successful serves and Senior leader Sage Kamps tallied up 20 set-assists and five ace serves.

The Lady Lynx have a strong squad this year, putting three seniors and two juniors on the court, with impressive contributions from sophomore LaManna.
