Volleyball - Fri, Oct. 19, 2012

Georgetown College volleyball broke all kinds of records Thursday night in Frankfort. The No. 11 Tigers (23-2) went to NCAA Division II Kentucky State University and notched their 22nd-straight win. In the 25-4, 25-10, 25-14 victory, senior Lindsey Wise tallied her 1,000th dig for the Orange & Black and sophomore Caraline Maher broke a hitting percentage record by crushing 11 kills in 12 swings.

"It was a fun night," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "It was an away match that was in our backyard, which meant we didn't have to travel far. We came out ready to play."

The fourth year coach had a string of 21 straight in his first season at Georgetown, but is currently on a 22 and counting streak. The Tigers last loss was in the opening weekend of the season to Cornerstone University on Aug. 25.

The four points Georgetown allowed in the first set is the sixth time this season the team has kept an opponent under 10 points for the set. The lowest point total was a two-point set score for St. Andrews early in the 22-game streak.

"That's hard to do when you think about rally scoring," Griffin said. "It means on your serve you are really taking care of the ball. In that match alone we had 18 kills on 22 swings. That is just phenomenal."

Rachel Eubanks, Allyson Wilborn and Corri Muha added seven kills each in the course of the match. Wise finished with 10 digs, putting her all-time mark at 1,003. Lindsey Martindale had 24 assists and Stephanie Gurren had 15.

Georgetown returns to action 1:15 pm Saturday at University of Virginia College at Wise. The Tigers will also play a 3:30 pm match against Bluefield College in the second Mid-South Conference Crossover of the season.
