Georgetown College volleyball solidified its top spot in the Mid-South Conference Tuesday evening with a straight-set win over Lindsey Wilson College. The No. 11 Tigers (30-3, 14-0) took care of business on the road 25-14, 25-23, 25-21 in Columbia.
Rachel Eubanks led the offensive charge with 13 of the 43 kills as the team hit .306 for the match. Rebekah Moore had 13 digs and Lindsey Wise 10 to help keep LWC's offense to just a .179 hitting percentage. Lindsey Martindale had 17 assists and Stephanie Gurren 15.
"It was good to see us come out in a rivalry road game and assert our control early," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "We are currently undefeated in league play with just one match left. The Blue Raiders were right behind us in the conference standings so if we had dropped this match it would have made for an interesting final week of play."
GC eliminated the possibility for a tie with the season-sweep of LWC (23-12, 11-3), while the loss drops the Blue Raiders into a tie for second with Campbellsville University (23-8, 11-3). Ironically, the CU Tigers will be the final opponent of the regular season for GC when they come to Georgetown for Senior Night 7 pm Tuesday.
Georgetown was preseason picked to finish third in the conference behind Lindsey, the defending champions, and Campbellsville. However, the youthful team has come together well, including a stretch of 25 straight match wins.
The top seed in the conference will play the eighth seed to start the tournament Nov. 9 in Louisville. The quarterfinals will all be played that Friday with the semifinals and finals Saturday, Nov. 10.
