ELIDA - The Lincolnview Lady Lancer volleyball team has struggled with consistency throughout the season.
That was not a problem Tuesday evening in the Division IV sectional opener at Elida High School, however, as Lincolnview dominated Ridgemont from start to finish en route to a 25-13, 25-15, 25-20 sweep.
“We finished. We’ve had a hard time playing in games two and three all season. It was good that we were able to come through and finish it - finish in three games instead of four or five,” said Lady Lancer coach Heather Crow.
Third-seeded Lincolnview jumped on the seventh-seeded Golden Gophers early in the first set, jumping out to a 9-3 lead and forcing a Ridgemont timeout.
A kill by sophomore Devann Springer and a tip point from junior Ashley McClure ran the Lincolnview lead to 12-4 out of the break. Later in the set, after a McClure ace and a Ridgemont error, the Golden Gophers took their second timeout, trailing 17-8.
