Volleyball - Sat, Oct. 27, 2012
No. 11 Tigers (29-3) make quick work of their final match
in the Boneyard Brawl with a 25-22, 28-26, 25-22 win over Point Park, which is
receiving votes in the national poll.
"This is why we love this tournament," said Tiger coach
Nick Griffin. "We really get a chance to prepare for the postseason in a few
weeks, seeing a lot of the teams that will be in the national tournament."
Six of the nine teams are in the Top 25 or receiving
votes - No. 5 Lee, No. 9 Indiana Wesleyan, No. 11 Georgetown, No. 15 Indiana
East, RV Point Park and RV Taylor.
Part of the qualification for receiving an invite to this
tournament is be in the previous year's national tournament. Georgetown College
went 3-1 on the weekend, downing No. 5 Lee and dismissing Point Park Saturday
evening. Saturday morning, the team also won in three over Freed-Hardeman.
"We need this type of challenge heading into the next few
weeks and the postseason," Griffin. "I'm not saying we were complacent as we
put together 25 wins, but we needed a weekend like this to begin a run."
The Tigers will play two more stiff Mid-South Conference
opponents - Lindsey Wilson College, currently second in the league, and
Campbellsville University. Then GC hits postseason with the MSC tournament and
designs on the national tournament again for the first time since 2009.
