Georgetown College volleyball team took its win streak to 20, sitting one shy of tying fourth-year coach Nick Griffin's longest win streak. The No. 13 Tigers (21-2, 9-0 Mid-South Conference) traveled to Barbourville for a tri-match with Indiana University Southeast and Union College.
GC dropped IUSE (12-10) in three, 25-22, 25-11, 25-19. Then closed out the day with a 25-16, 25-22, 25-12 win over the host Bulldogs (12-14).
"It's good to play in tri-matches where you have to play more than one match a day, but aren't playing the whole weekend," Griffin said. "When it comes to tournament time we are going to have to be ready for long days, full of matches. This is just another way to experience that without taxing the body too much - another way to add balance to the season."
Rachel Eubanks had 25 kills for the day, while fellow sophomore Caraline Maher added 16. Rebekah Moore had 33 digs for the two matches. Lindsey Martindale had 15 assists against IUSE, while Stephanie Gurren had 16 against Union.
Griffin's first team started the 2009 season 21-0. The current team could tie that total Tuesday at Cumberland University and break it Thursday at Kentucky State University. It would be another record set on the road for the youthful coach. He tallied his 100th win in three-plus seasons at his alma mater Olivet Nazarene University's tournament.
