Whole team shines on volleyball senior night

[caption id="attachment_13718" align="alignleft" width="265"] The Missouri Western State University girls Volleyball team have said goodbye to their senior players for the last time.[/caption] Missouri Western Volleyball said goodbye to their two seniors on Nov. 6 as they made it a night they won't forget for some time. Western hosted Quincy University Tuesday night for its final home match of the season and to honor their seniors. Prior to the game, the senior outside hitters, Torey Lyman and Lindsey Williams, were presented with framed jerseys before they played their last match in MWSU Fieldhouse. However, Williams had torn three of the four ligaments in her knee and has been out for about half of the season while Lyman had been out with a stress facture in her leg. Later in the season, Lyman returned to the court but was sidelined again due to a sprained ankle.  So unfortunately on the night that meant to honor them and their accomplishments, neither of them actually suited up to play. But that didn't keep them from cheering on their team to victory. Western started out sluggish and fell quickly to Quincy. With only eight kills to the Hawks 13, the Griffons lost the first set 21-25. Switching sides seemed to do a lot for the Griffons. With their backs against the wall, the Griffons kicked it into high gear in the second set, having four blocks and 17 digs to Quincy's 14. They made it an even match with a 25-21 win in the second set. With the match even, Western was ready to keep their momentum going. They had 11 kills on the Hawks seven and 15 digs. The Griffons claimed the third set 25-16. The Griffons quickly made it clear that they wanted the victory. A quick 25-19 sweep helped Western claim the win and improve them to a 15-15 record. Outstanding players on the night were freshman Jessie Thorup with 14 kills, Stephanie Hattey with 15 digs and Jordan Chohon with 28 assists. One of the highlights included claiming the match point off of an opponent's head. Lyman, a business marketing major and management minor, recorded two years at Johnson County Community College before becoming a Griffon. There, she was named First Team All-Region VI selection and Second Team All-East Jayhawk Conference. In her career at Western, she played in 45 matches. She also collected 12 assists, 96 kills, 29 service aces and 378 digs. Lyman plans on working at a golf course and being the sports marketing person there. "[Being a Griffon] has been awesome," Lyman said. "It's been a good transition, coming from a junior college. It's hard to go from playing with one team for two years and then transferring to come play for a completely different team. But it's been great." Williams, a biology major, was also a two-year transfer student from JUCO. She played for Butler Community College her first two seasons where she was named Second Team All-Jayhawk Conference in 2010 and broke Butler's record for aces in a career. During her last serve (that happened to be an ace), she suffered a seasoning-ending knee injury on Sept. 14 against Missouri Southern. Williams wants to become a physical therapist. "Our teammates have made it really good transition-wise," said Williams. "The people around campus and the other Griffon athletes are really just nice people. They remind us of the people back home in Kansas." With both of the seniors being JUCO transfers, they haven't had much time to prove themselves as players. Coach Cory Frederick noted the unfortunate circumstance of both of the seniors playing on their senior night. "Both Torey and Lindsey have been busting their butts and they were doing a great job for us," Frederick said. The Griffons will finish off their season on the road against Pittsburg State and Southwest Baptist.
