Lynden Christian volleyball tops rival Lynden


Lynden Christian volleyball pulled off a four-set win over in-town rival Lynden 25-19, 25-16, 18-25, 25-19 on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Lynden High School. The Lyncs were led by Madison Weg's 10 kills, 16 assists and four blocks as they defeated the Lions for the second time this season.

"It was a good night all around," Lynden Christian coach Kim Grycel said in a phone interview. "In the third game we made too many errors. They did a really good job blocking us and serving well (in the third set). So we went back to what was working for us the first two games."

Karley De Jager added nine kills and three aces for the Lyncs, and teammate Emily Veening had 26 digs. Lynden Christian's Kara Bajema also had nine kills, five aces and 15 digs.

For Lynden, Kat Webb recorded 21 kills to lead the team. Meanwhile, Alexis Shindruk tallied 27 digs.

"We can't afford mistakes," Lynden coach Julie Clift said in a phone interview. "We need to work on our mental toughness."

Lynden Christian plays next at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, at home against Sedro-Woolley. Lynden's next match is at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, at Sehome.
