Volleyball - Wed, Oct. 10, 2012

Georgetown College volleyball team came out with authority Tuesday night, which stirred opponent Transylvania University (13-11) to up its game for a three-set battle at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. The No. 13 Tigers (18-2, 8-0), up two spots this week, cruised in set one before much closer competitions to put the Pioneers away, 25-13, 25-19, 33-31.

"We knew they were going to be tough," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "I think the first set was a little misleading. We were hitting on all cylinders, but once Transy settled in it was more of what we expected."

Georgetown roared out with 11 kills on 32 attempts for a .313 hitting percentage, while smothering the Pioneers to a .029 hitting percentage. The second set, GC hit its lowest percentage of the match at .214, but the defense flexed its muscle blanking Transy with a .000 percentage.

The Tigers were in a real battle to keep the match from going to a fourth set, denying more than three set points for the Pioneers. TU did the same before Georgetown finally put it away at 33-31. Rachel Eubanks was the lone Tiger with double-digit kills with 10. Rebekah Moore led defensively with 17 digs, while Lindsey Martindale had 20 assists and Stephanie Gurren added 13.

Georgetown returns to Mid-South Conference action 7 pm Thursday hosting St. Catharine College.
