LCSC sweeps Walla Walla in three sets
LEWISTON, ID – The Lewis-Clark State volleyball team took it to the overmatched Walla Walla University Wolves in every aspect on a rare Monday night matchup at the Activity Center, registering a convincing sweep in the non-league contest.

Warrior coach LaToya Harris used every player on the roster on Friday as LCSC cruised to the 25-7, 25-8, 25-13 sweep.

“It was good to get different options on the court, try some different lineups and some different things,” Harris said. “We played really relaxed and worked on things we needed to work on. We had Marlee (Zeman) at libero and she played well. We did some different things and we were still attacking and running our offense.”

Nine different players tallied kills for Lewis-Clark State (11-7, 7-2 Frontier Conference) in the match, led by six from senior Brianne Brown.

The Warriors were especially stout defensively, holding the Wolves to just three kills in the match and a minus-.358 hitting percentage.

“It’s about discipline and doing your job in the front row,” Harris said. “We communicated well and did a good job blocking.”

It was the end of a stretch that saw the Warriors take the court three times in four nights, and with the outcome never in doubt, Harris got her starters plenty of rest.

The Warriors resume Frontier Conference at Westminster on Saturday at 1 p.m. LCSC swept the Griffins at home on Sept. 13.
