Volleyball - Fri, Oct. 26, 2012
Georgetown College volleyball bounced back from a
five-set loss to Indiana Tech to hand No. 5 Lee University its ninth setback of
the season. The No. 11 Tigers dropped the first set, but then rallied and
rolled to 22-25, 25-21, 25-18, 25-18 win over the Flames.
"That was a huge rebound for us," said GC coach Nick
Griffin. "At times we played tight this morning, but we just let it all hang
out against Lee and played the best I've seen in a while."
The Tigers watched their 25-match win streak come to an
end in the early afternoon match with Indiana Tech (25-22, 20-25, 15-25, 25-23,
15-19). At the same time Lee was losing to Point Park, which is receiving votes
in the national poll. Then GC got behind to the Flames, but were not going to
lose twice at home in one day.
In the second and third sets, Georgetown opened up good
size leads and hung on, but need to erase a deficit to take set four. Lee
dumped one into the net for a 23-17 and the Tigers never looked back in finishing
Allyson Wilbourn led with 17 kills and Caraline Maher
finished with 15. Four Tigers recorded double-digit digs. Rebekah Moore had 18,
Lindsey Martindale 16, Lindsey Wise 11 and Kristen Schellhaus 10. Martindale
added 21 assists and Stephanie Gurren had 18.
GC returns to action 11:30 am Saturday against
Freed-Hardeman and finishes up the 8th annual Boneyard Brawl with a rumble
against Point Park.
