SPENCERVILLE — With the tournament draw right around the corner — Sunday — volleyball teams are looking to finish off the regular season hitting on all cylinders.
Lincolnview and Spencerville were the two Northwest Conference combatants looking to do so Thursday night at Spencerville as the Lady Bearcats held Senior Parents Night.
However, the visiting Lady Lancers were rude guests, outlasting the hosts 25-18, 18-25, 22-25, 25-21, 15-11 in a marathon.
Abby Freewalt (10 kills, 17 digs), Shelby Mulholland (3 aces, 7 kills, 7 stuff-blocks), Alli Gilroy (12 digs) and Abbie Lee played their final home matches for the Lady Bearcats.
“The girls are pretty emotional right now, especially the seniors; losing in their final home match playing as well as they did is pretty tough,” Spencerville coach Kari Wicker said. “We played well in every phase from start to finish; there really weren’t any times that we didn’t. We just didn’t finish enough. One area we did do very well was 17 stuff-blocks; that was a strong effort at the net.”
Lady Lancer coach Heather Crow also had plenty to be pleased about.
