MIDDLE POINT - Short-handed Lincolnview played Allen East tough Tuesday night but eventually fell in four sets 23-25, 25-17, 25-22, 25-21. The Lady Lancers end their Northwest Conference season at 2-7 and they’re 7-12 overall. The Mustangs are 5-4 and 10-6.
Four of Lincolnview’s varsity players were serving the second match of a two-match suspension, which forced some major changes in the home team’s lineup. Freshmen Ashton Bowersock (middle hitter) and Grace Gorman (right-side hitter) moved up to the varsity level and played the entire game.
“They (Bowersock and Gorman) stepped up and they did what they were supposed to do — they did a very good job,” said coach Heather Crow. “And our setter, Kelsey Mohr, normally doesn’t run a 5-1 and she had to run a a 5-1 tonight. She did a very good job mixing up the sets. Ashley McClure played middle for us and she usually plays outside, so she was able to step up, too. Even with the changes, they did overall really well.”
