The Lincoln County High School volleyball team’s last league game against Mountain View was a great way to end the league season. The team won all four games of the double header, not allowing Mountain View to score more than 18.
Mountain View has not won a game this season. The first match was the worst for the Lynx, and coach Ken Thornock re-stated a common issue. “We lowered our game to their level,” he said. But Lincoln still won 25-18.
Game two was better as Brooklyn Hafen and Kailey Kelly both had four kills, and Cameron Lloyd really helped on the defensive side with 10 digs. Drew Cardinal also had a great night with seven assists and seven digs. Lynx took the win 25-16.
The first game of the second match went by fast. Lincoln was always at least five points ahead the whole time. The team kept Mountain View to its lowest points all night, with a final score of 25-14.
In the final game, Hannah Lytle had six assists and 11 digs. Lloyd and Kelly both had four kills. They Lynx had a great game offensively, and almost every player had at least one kill. Lincoln won 25-16.
On Tuesday the team hosted Pahranagat Valley for a non-league game, losing 21-25, 30-32 and 12-25.
