It was everything you would want in a rival volleyball matchup. Both teams left it all out on the court as Cole Camp beat Lincoln on Tuesday night in Lincoln in three fast paced sets.
Lincoln would come from behind to win the first set 25-22. It was tied several times before the Lady Cardinals went up 21-20 and held on for the victory. At times, Cole Camp’s Ashley Schear is like poetry motion and she is constantly chattering to her teammates, but she struggled early on but Cole Camp’s  depth would make the difference in the last two sets.
The second matchup saw a tremendous struggle early on. Chloe Reese for Lincoln has been called a “Beast” by her coaching staff because of her aggressive play. In volleyball, it is hard to keep the ball away from one particular player but in this case teams would be wise not to hit the ball in her direction. In the en,d she spiked the ball out of bounds for the deciding 25-15. Ironically, Schear hit the ball into the net for the final point in the first contest. However, both stars had more uplifting moments than not and both are worth the price of admission.
Cole Camp’s Head Coach Abby Massingill commented, “Our game plan was to keep the ball moving and wear Lincoln out.”
It was obvious in the third contest that the Lady Cardinals faded some and the taller hitters on Cole Camp took control and won out 25-18 as Sara Harms tapped the ball over the net perfectly for the winning point.
Schear ended with nine kills and 10 digs. Harms had eight kills and three blocks. Destiny Kestner had 13 assists and six digs while Paityn Massingill had ten digs. Ashley Luebbering was also a big factor in the win.
No stats this time around for Lincoln, but very worth mentioning among other players were their setter Jaylin Mays, Reese, the Libero  Cadyn Paxton, Callie Spunaugle, Grace Eichler and Haley Ebeling.Cole Camp is now
