Volleyball wins on the road at EMU

Amanda Wrightson celebrates a point.

Harrisonburg, Va. -- Lynchburg College's volleyball team erased a seven-point deficit in the fourth set, storming back to take the set and match, 3-1, over Old Dominion Athletic Conference opponent Eastern Mennonite on the road Friday.

Senior middle Amanda Wrightson (Toms River, N.J.) capped off an eight-block evening by assisting the final two points in a 27-25 comeback win in the fourth set to preserve victory.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Lynchburg 3, Eastern Mennonite 1 (25-16, 18-25, 25-17, 27-25)

Records: Lynchburg (15-5, 6-3 ODAC), Eastern Mennonite (8-15, 2-7 ODAC)

Venue: Yoder Arena, Eastern Mennonite University, Harrisonburg, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

- The Hornets won the first, 25-16, but faltered in the second set, allowing the Royals to tie the match.

- Lynchburg trailed 19-12 midway through set No. 4, but a Sydney Frink (Chester, Va.) kill sparked a 4-0 run that brought Lynchburg back into reach, and Wrightson, Mesa Willis (Dabneys, Va.), and Frink teamed up to block the final two Royals attacks.

- Jalissa Linz (York, Pa.) led the Hornets attack with 11 kills, and libero Lauren Stanford (Mechanicsville, Va.) made 18 digs on the back row.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

The team will spend the night in the Shenandoah Valley ahead of Saturday's trip to Bridgewater for another ODAC contest.
