Lincoln County High volleyball took impressive wins at Lake Mead last Friday.
Bridon Lewis had 15 kills and four blocks as the Lady Lynx sweep the doubleheader. “She hit over 700 in the first match,” coach Ken Thornock said. The Lynx won the first match 25-13, 27-25, and the second 25-19, 18-25, 15-13.
The win was not without some dramatics, especially during the first match, which saw the Lady Lynx overcome 16-22 and 19-24 deficits in the second game. “We had kind of a slow start the second game, and made some errors,” Thornock said. “I mean, it was a good win, I wasn’t happy with the circumstances, but I was really happy with the win and how they were able to stay up.” Josie Burgess had six kills and three digs in the opener. “Josie played really well, hitting-wise she was very consistent,” Thornock said. “She hit over 400 in both matches.”
Chesnee Harding had two aces, 19 assists and 20 digs from in the second match.
The coach said his team was able to show a lot of resilience. “They were able to pull it out, so I was pretty happy that way.”
The Lady Lynx record improved to 13-11 overall and 6-4 in Division III Southern League play. They are tied for fourth in league standings with The Meadows. The team is at Needles (7-13, 4-6) tonight for a doubleheader.
