Lynden Christian volleyball squeaks past Squalicum


The Lynden Christian team had to fight for its win over Squalicum, but was able to pull off the victory 25-23, 16-25, 19-25, 25-21, 15-13 on Thursday, Oct. 24, at Squalicum.

The Lyncs were led by Madison Weg's 25 kills, a career-high, and Carli Tjoelker's 26 assists.

"We came from behind and won the first set, but Madison was feeling a little sick and asked to come out," Lynden Christian coach Kim Grycel said in a phone interview. "She's kind of our leader and when she came out we got rattled a bit, but she went back out (in the last two sets) and put up big numbers."

Grycel credited Squalicum for battling hard the entire match, especially libero Kayla Chang, but in the last two sets the Lyncs just went back to playing their game to come back.

Squalicum's next match is at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, at Anacortes. Lynden Christian does not play again until the postseason starts in early November.
