The showdown for the top spot in the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference standings turned out to be nothing of the sort. The Lady Chiefs came out flat and were never able to catch 20th-ranked Moraine Valley Community College. The Cylones (20-5) won the opener handily 25-15, and then swept the match by taking the next two games 25-20 and 25-15. Both teams came into the evening 5-0 in ISCC play and tied for the league lead. Waubonsee, ranked 26th in the latest NJCAA Division II poll, lost for the fifth time this season with all five losses coming at the hands of three nationally-ranked squads. Faith Montalbano paced the Lady Chiefs (23-5) with a dozen kills, while Ellie Martin had 24 assists and Erin Bowe added nine digs.
