AUSTIN EDITION - Athletics lose at Glenville

GLENVILLE -- Lyle/Austin Pacelli lost a Southeast Conference volleyball match in four games to Glenville-Emmons on Tuesday night. The Wolverines beat the Athletics 25-15, 25-20, 16-25, 25-14.

The L/P girls had trouble with the bigger G-E players along the front line. Ashley Lau led the attack-mode for the Wolverines with 28 kills. Jordyn Van Ryswyk, another tall player for G-E, had a number of key blocks.

"We started out in the hole again and couldn't get out of it," L/P coach Carl Ellis said. "Our serve-receive just wasn't there, and it seemed like our feet were stuck to the floor. G-E always gives us a tough match, and this year, they have some girls that really attack hard at the net."

Anna Bergstrom led the L/P girls with 13 kills; her play up front helped the visitors win the third game.

Normally, L/P is a good serving team, but the Athletics had only three aces and committed eight service errors. Overall, the visitors had 39 kills and 21 hitting errors.

"We started attacking in the third game and that's why we won," Ellis said. "We just made too many mistakes. It wasn't a good night on the road. They came out ready to play and did what they had to do to get the job done."

L/P (8-9, 3-3 SEC) travels to Lanesboro for another SEC match on Thursday night.
