LC Coach Mark Tippett: Aside from a few serving errors in the first two sets, we played a fundamentally sound game tonight.  Our passers did a great job of delivering the ball to target which gave our setters and hitters the opportunity to run the offense and control the tempo of the game.  Our block was solid all night long which played a big role in our ability to stop Sandburg from gaining any momentum.  It is very satisfying to see the work our players have put in this season pay off with a strong, start to finish performance like the one they gave tonight.

LC will participate in the Midwest Athletic Conference Tournament on Saturday hosted by Parkland College beginning at 10:00am.
