MIDDLEPOINT - Like they have so many times this season, the Lancers mad quick work of their opponent in three sets on their way to another win.

Lincolnview defeated Kalida by scores of 25-17, 25-11 and 25-19 to move to 6-0 on the season.

"I liked how we came out strong and aggressive in the first and second set," said Lincolnview Head Coach JaNahn Evans following the game. "Our hitters hit, despite some nice blocks at the net by Kalida, and our passes were to target."

The dynamic duo of Kendall Bollenbacher and Madison Williams created problems for Kalida at the net all night. The two combined for 25 kills despite constant pressure from the Wildcat blockers.

The only true struggle of the night came in the third set, where mental errors kept the game close.

Kalida jumped out to a six point lead, but the Lancers refused to let the set get away from them.

"We knew they were going to come at us with their blockers," Evans said. "I think once my middles got into the system and the flow of the offense, everything started working."

Lana Carey led the Lancers with 21 digs on the night. Brianna Ebel racked up 31 assists, while also putting four aces on the board.

Lincolnview will put their undefeated record on the line on Monday against New Breman before opening league play against Paulding on Tuesday.

The Lancers will look toward these matchups as a few of their first true tests of the season.

"We're excited for next week," said Evans. "This should be a great gauge for where we are at this point in the season.
