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
