WAUKEGAN, Ill. — The Scouts extended their two-game winning streak last night by defeating the Waukegan Bulldogs in a close two game set, 25-18, 29-27. In the first game, Lake Forest made quick work of the home team by controlling the game. While Waukegan’s strength lies mainly in their defense, sophomore twins Caroline and Katherine Graham were able to break through on offense last night. The Graham sisters capitalized on many opportunities and the strong Bulldog defense had no response.

In the second game, Waukegan came out strong and were able to read Lake Forest’s offense. The Bulldogs took the early lead and were ahead 21-16. Just as the series looked like it was headed into a third game, junior Alyssa Thrash shifted the momentum. Thrash had an incredible serving run where the Scouts were able to close the gap and eventually tie up the game. The game was far from over. Having to secure the win by two points, Lake Forest needed to play a clean game in order to defeat the experienced Waukegan defense. The Scouts did just that. “When Waukegan stepped up, we were determined to gain back the lead. We knew we needed this win and we did so by capitalizing on the outsides because they didn’t have strong blocks. We stayed aggressive without losing focus,” senior Claire Mahoney said. The Scouts poise and determination was enough to finish off the Bulldogs, 29-27.

Lake Forest will ride the confidence of their three-game winning streak into their home invitational this Saturday.
