Crusaders Win Thriller against Lincoln


KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The volleyball team was all but dead in a decisive set four when they turned to junior hitter Torey DeLozier (Watertown, Wis.) to deliver a 27-25 win.

Lincoln’s hard hitting seemed too much to handle, but the resilient Crusaders leaned on sophomore blocker Laci Peterson (Chillicothe, Ill.) to win the fifth and deciding set, 15-12.

Maranatha finished the day winning both of their matches. They move on to face #7 Philadelphia Biblical University tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. Central Time. They face #3  Kentucky Christian University Friday at 4:00 p.m.

The top two teams in each pool advance to the semifinals on Saturday.
