Lawrence volleyball drops multiple heartbreakers at MWC Crossover

Andy York

The Lawrence University Volleyball team dropped five matches to MWC South opponents over the weekend. The losses start the Vikings out at 0-5 in the MWC, and leave them looking to improve their record when the MWC North season begins in three weeks.The Vikings lost matches to three teams in four games. Lake Forest, Illinois College, and Grinnell all defeated the Vikings in four games.

The Vikings nearly pulled out a win against Knox College, but dropped an emotionally charged fifth game 15-13. Monmouth defeated the Vikings in three games.

The Vikings were very competitive in all five matches over the weekend, but they could not seem to get over the hump when it was needed.

Lis Pollock again led the Vikings. The MWC North Player of the Week last week, Pollock led the Vikings in kills in three of the five matches. She had twenty-seven kills in matches against Illinois College and Knox.

In the other two matches, Shannon Arndt led Lawrence. She recorded her high for the weekend with twenty-six kills against Lake Forest.

The Vikings are back in action tomorrow against Northland Baptist Bible College in Alexander Gym. Game time is 2:00 p.m.
