LCSC volleyball team keeps rolling with sweep of Westminster
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Josi Lyman and Anile Clemente led a strong 1-2 punch to help the Lewis-Clark State College women's volleyball team remain undefeated on the season with a 25-15, 25-16, 25-22 win over Westminster in Frontier Conference action on Friday night.
The win lifts the Warriors, ranked No. 12 in the NAIA, to 17-0 overall and 5-0 in conference play. All but three of LCSC's wins have been in straight sets, including all five in conference play. The Warriors are off to their best start since the 2000 season when LC won its first 20 matches.
Lyman, a 6-foot-2 freshman from LaGrande, Ore., led the Warriors with 12 kills and hit .360 for the match, while Clemente, a junior, added 10 kills and hit .381. Clemente also had two aces and eight digs.
As a team, the Warriors hit .267, compared to .090 for Westminster.
"It wasn't real crisp but we still played pretty well," LCSC coach Jen Greeny said. "What a difference a year makes in expectations. We still have more things to work on and I still think we can get better, but we are playing pretty well overall."
Lindsay Scott led LCSC with 20 digs, while freshman Abby Bruya had 22 assists and 10 digs. Senior Julie Maciboba was big at the net with seven kills, a .400 hitting percentage, and 3.5 blocks, including two solo blocks.
LCSC used 14 players in the match to drop Westminster to 3-2 in conference play at 3-9 overall.
The Warriors complete the first half of conference play with a pair of home matches this week. On Thursday, LCSC entertains Carroll College at 7 p.m., and then plays host to Rocky Mountain College at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Both matches will be played at the LCSC Activity Center.
Next weekend also is Alumni Weekend for all Warrior alumni volleyball players. Events are planned on both Friday and Saturday and more information is available by contacting the LCSC volleyball office.
