It took awhile Thursday night, but the Lakeland College volleyball team delivered down the stretch to score a thrilling 3-2 win over Concordia University Chicago.
Lakeland (4-14, 2-5 Northern Athletics Conference) snapped a four-match losing streak with a 23-21 win in the fifth set. The other scores were 25-18, 22-25, 25-15, 20-25. CUC falls to 9-11 overall, 3-3 in the NAC.
It was Lakeland's fourth consecutive five-set match. Five of the Muskies' seven NAC matches this fall have gone five sets.
