LISLE, ILL. - The Lakeland College women's volleyball team has found the going tougher in Northern Athletics Conference play of late as the Muskies dropped a pair of matches this weekend on the road in Illinois.
Lakeland was defeated by Benedictine (Ill.) University in three sets on Saturday, falling in three close sets 25-22, 25-22, 25-21. The loss came less than 18 hours after the Muskies were defeated in four sets by Aurora (Ill.) University, winning the first set before falling in four sets 25-27, 25-18, 25-23, 25-19.
