Volleyball - Sat, Sep. 15, 2012
Georgetown College volleyball is on a 10-game winning
streak and Saturday afternoon got a bit of sweet revenge over the last team to
beat them. The No. 25 Tigers (11-2) beat Cornerstone University, which is
receiving vote, in five sets, similar to what the Golden Eagles did on Aug. 25.
Georgetown won 25-13, 26-24, 15-25, 22-25, 18-16 to finish another full week
without a loss.
Earlier Saturday morning the Tigers took care of future
Great Midwest Athletic Conference foe Trevecca Nazarene in three sets, 25-9,
25-18, 25-9. This victory was coach Nick Griffin's 100th at Georgetown in three
seasons and 12 games.
The Tigers have been on a roll since the first
Cornerstone showdown, dropping just three sets total in the past three weeks.
The youthful power has gelled with the senior defensive backbone to be amazing.
"We wanted to see what it was like to play Cornerstone
again," Griffin said. "We felt we were really in that match the first time and
wanted a chance to be full strength this time."
The Tigers played without freshman Corri Muha the first
time due to a twisted ankle during the Early Bird Tournament. She has been back
in the middle for GC and very instrumental in the run over the past few weeks.
Stats are not currently available for either of these
matches. Georgetown returns to action 7 pm Tuesday at University of the
