LAKELAND FALLS TO UW-EAU CLAIRE AT NCAA VOLLEYBALL
Wis. -- The Lakeland volleyball team fell to the University of Wisconsin-Eau
Claire Blugolds (30-21, 30-19, 30-23)
3-0 in the first round of the NCAA Division III
Regional hosted by UW-Oshkosh.
"I think emotionally we were ready to play," said
Lakeland head coach Chad Schreiber. "At times we were distracted and lost our
roles a little bit, and that cost us points. We can't lose points in a match
like this. We lost a little focus and we got distracted, and that was the
difference in all three games."
In the first game, the Muskies, who finish the
season 23-16, scored the first points of the game and both teams exchanged the
lead several times. With the game tied at 8-8, the Blugolds went on a six-point
run, forcing Schreiber to call a timeout.
The Muskies were able to go on a five-point run
coming out of the timeout to close within one at 14-13, and a Renee Steinert
kill tied the match at 16-16. But the Blugolds took command to net the 30-21
