Press Release

The Lakeland College Men’s Volleyball team fought hard until they were finally defeated by Marquette University on Wednesday.

Lakeland’s head coach Joe Julkowski called a timeout in the last game while trailing 13-10. After being scored on during the previous play, Lakeland scored on a side out to bring the score to 14-11, Marquette. In the last service of the match, freshman setter Dayton Erickson had a service error to give Marquette the win.

“We went up aggressively with Marquette but made too many service errors,” said Julkowski.

After losing the first game of the match 25-23 Lakeland came back to win the next two games. Lakeland senior hitter Beau Bradshaw said, “We fought back but just didn’t gel, and had too many missed serves.”

Marquette won the fourth set 25-22 to tie the match 2-2.

Freshman hitter Alec Redlich had 14 kills, Erickson had 49 assists, and senior libero Andy Cheever had 19 digs to lead Lakeland.

Julkowski said the team will look to cut down on service errors and concentrate on the basics in order to be successful in their tournament at UW-Oshkosh this weekend.
