MACON, Ga. – Having run through the past two seasons without a blemish on the conference record, Lipscomb (6-6, 1-0 A-SUN) volleyball opened the 2012 Atlantic Sun campaign by picking up where they left off with a 3-0 (25-19, 25-23, 25-18) sweep of homestanding Mercer (4-10, 0-1 A-SUN) on Friday night in Macon, Ga.
“Overall a road win in conference is huge and I’m really pleased with the way the team played,” said Lipscomb head coach Brandon Rosenthal. “Mercer came out with a new lineup in game one and I thought we handled that well.”
“Hats off to Mercer, that is probably one of the loudest places I’ve ever coached. It was hard to think and they got us out of our rhythm in the second game. I’ve got to give credit to our girls. To come back and win is tremendous. “
Lipscomb’s defense was stifling, holding the Bears to a .010 hitting percentage on the night. The Lady Bisons meanwhile posted a .196 hitting percentage against the league’s best defensive team statistically.
“Abby did a nice job of executing the game plan and our defense was tremendous. We really got them out of their rhythm with our defensive effort.”
