Volleyball - Wed, Oct. 17, 2012

Georgetown College volleyball has not lost in almost two months now and tied fourth-year coach Nick Griffin's streak of 21 straight wins Tuesday at Cumberland University. The No. 11 Tigers (22-2, 10-0 Mid-South Conference) won in straight sets over the Bulldogs (7-19, 1-9).

GC got 12 kills from sophomore Rachel Eubanks led the charge, while freshman Corri Muha added seven for just more than half the teams kills. Lindsey Martindale had 19 assists and Stephanie Gurren 10. Seniors Rebekah Moore and Lindsey Wise each had eight digs. It was the fifth-straight, straight-set wins and 15th overall. It keeps The Tigers perfect in the league as well.

"We want to stay undefeated in the conference," Griffin said. "We have four more matches in the league with the last two against Lindsey Wilson and Campbellsville."

Along with that, GC will host one of the biggest tournaments over Halloween weekend. The Boneyard Brawl returns with nine teams playing 18 matches over two days, Oct. 26-27. Action will begin 11 am Oct. 26 and 9:30 am Oct. 27. Many ranked opponents will be here and it is one of the final tournaments everyone gets to see each other before the national tournament.

"This is always a great event," Griffin said. "It is taxing on us as we try to run it, but it is very worth it in the competition that is here both for us and our fans. I feel as though we have really started to generate a good fan base this season and that weekend will be huge for us."

Georgetown returns to action 7 pm Thursday at Kentucky State University.
