Tonight’s Battle of the Boulevard was filled with spikes by the Lipscomb volleyball team as the Bisons swept Belmont in three sets at Allen Arena.

The three sets ended 25-11, 25-17 and 25-10.

“They came out and played hard,” Sean Johnson, strength and conditioning coach, said. “The girls were focused, they came out and played well. It’s good just to see them develop as players; their hard work pays off.”

Outside hitter Carlyle Nusbaum and middle blocker Ca’Layci Coffey, both seniors, each made three kills in a row.

“Our team has amazing chemistry. We make sure that we play for each other and for the coaches and do our job,” Nusbaum said.

“We have a lot of experience and a lot of chemistry,” Nusbaum said. “We’ve been through all for the last three and a half years.”

The Bisons will travel to Champaign, Ill. this weekend for the three-game Illini Classic, hosted by the University of Illinois. Friday features a doubleheader against Northern Illinois and Creighton, then Lipscomb will take on the hosts Saturday.
