LINCOLN — Lincoln Christian overcame a one-set deficit to down Fremont Bergan 14-25, 31-29, 25-22, 25-21 in prep volleyball Tuesday night.
“The match was a classic Nebraska Centennial Conference battle,” Bergan coach Sue Wewel said. “The Lady Knights came out on fire in the first game and in the second game it was back-and-forth with a lot of digs and a lot of defense going on.”
Wewel said the third and fourth sets were also back-and-forth battles. She credited the Crusaders’ defense with swinging the match to the host school.
“They brought up a lot of our hits,” Wewel said. “But I was really pleased with the way our girls played. They battled for each and every point and put their heart and soul into the match.”
Senior Allie DeGroff led the Lady Knights with 11 kills and four aces. Junior Lauren Baker had seven kills and three blocks while Emma Walz added six kills, an ace serve and two blocks.
