LW Volleyball closes out home card with sweep of Cumberland
WINNERS! The Blue Raiders close out their home schedule with their 63rd consecutive win at Biggers Sports Center, dating back to the 2013 season on a very emotional Senior Night.
Next: Lindsey Wilson Volleyball at Campbellsville University's Powell Athletic Center, 203 Tiger Way, Campbellsville, KY, at 6:30pmCT/7:30pmET, Thursday, November 2, 2017. Regular-season finale.
By Chris Wells, LWC Sports Information Director
COLUMBIA, KY - The Lindsey Wilson volleyball seniors walked off the Biggers Sports Center court tonight the exact same way they have every other home game of their careers, winners.
The six Blue Raider seniors closed their glorious home career with a 25-18, 25-8, 25-13 win tonight over visiting Cumberland (TN) in Lindsey Wilson's 2017 home finale. The win helped the seniors cap their career with a 56-0 record in Biggers.
Top-ranked Lindsey Wilson improves to 24-0 on the season and 13-0 in the Mid-South Conference.
Lindsey Wilson had already wrapped up the MSC regular-season title on Tuesday following Georgetown's (KY) five-set win over Campbellsville (KY). So it was only fitting the Blue Raiders validated that gift with a win tonight.
Following an emotional Senior Night ceremony, the Blue Raiders came out in the opening set a little sluggish. Despite the start, Lindsey Wilson settled the emotions to take a 1-0 lead with a 25-18 first-set win.
The Blue Raiders finished the set posting a .361 hitting percentage -- their lowest attacking set of the night -- led by Yeniffer Ramirez's five kills and Elly Burke's four. The duo combined for nine kills in 15 swings with just one error each.
Makenzie Montano was also instrumental in the set with 12 assists, a pair of kills and three digs.
The Blue Raiders were dominant in the second frame -- both offensively and defensively -- in a 25-8 win.
The Lindsey Wilson attack produced 12 kills in 18 attempts with just two errors for a .611 team hitting percentage. While the attack hit a new gear, the defense produced eight blocks and limited the Phoenix (14-12, 5-7 in the MSC) to a -.080 attack in the set.
Madison Molitor and Carolynne Silva led the Blue Raiders in the second set combining for five kills in six swings. The pair was just as good with the block, as each recorded a solo block and combined for three assisted blocks in the set. With her third block in the match, Silva moved into a tie for 10th on the all-time blocks list with 218.
The Blue Raiders capped their 23rd three-set sweep of the season with a 25-13 win in the third frame.
The offensive efficiency slipped just a bit from the second set, but the Blue Raiders still hit an impressive .400 in the final set of the evening. Lindsey Wilson closed the match hitting .430 as a team compared to Cumberland's .067. With their production, the Blue Raiders posted a hitting percentage north of .300 for the 18th time this season and above .400 for the ninth time.
Paulina Sobolewska led a balanced Lindsey Wilson attack with 10 kills. Burke ended with nine, Ramirez added eight, Molitor chipped in six and Montano contributed five. Montano added 34 assists and six digs. Caitlyn Tino provided a team-high 16 digs while Lauren Streets chipped in 10.
Cumberland's Amanda Worrell and Masa Nalovic led the Phoenix with five kills each.
The Blue Raiders close out their home schedule with their 63rd consecutive win at Biggers Sports Center, dating back to the 2013 season.
