Volleyball - Wed, Oct. 3, 2012
Georgetown College volleyball (17-2, 8-0 Mid-South
Conference) had one of its toughest tests to date. Against archrival
Campbellsville University (14-5, 5-2), the No. 15 Tigers needed five sets to
walk away with their 16th win in a row, 25-19, 25-17, 23-25, 17-25, 15-11.
"It is a tough environment to play in and we had to
battle through," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "We played good defense and have
letting them tie things up, rallied in the fifth set to get the win."
The team hit a .158, only the second time all season to
be below .200. The first was the season-opener against Madonna when the Tigers
hit a .144.
"Give credit to Campbellsville's defense," Griffin said. "He
had over 150 attempts, but CU was digging the ball and making great plays."
Defensively for Georgetown, the backline had 81 digs. MSC
Player of the Week and senior Rebekah Moore led with 19, while freshman Lindsey
Martindale had 15. Freshman Shelby Reid also reached double-digit digs with 11.
The Tigers do not have another match until Oct. 9,
hosting Transylvania University.
"We like the ebbs and flows of this season," Griffin
said. "We have had a demanding couple of weeks where we have been running
around. With almost a week without a match, we can let the players have some
time to recoup and refocus. We have another big stretch in front of us and
these breaks allow for everyone to avoid hitting that wall off a 50-plus match
