Georgetown College volleyball team began its postseason trek with a celebration of the regular season at the Mid-South Conference banquet Thursday evening in Louisville. The No. 11 Tigers finished 31-3 and were undefeated in league play at 15-0.

The accolades to go with the accomplishments came pouring in as Rachel Eubanks was named MSC Player of the Year and Nick Griffin was named MSC Coach of the Year. Caraline Maher and Allyson Wilbourn joined Eubanks on the all-conference first-team, while Lindsey Martindale, Corri Muha and Rebekah Moore were honorable mentions.

The Tigers also had five on the all-academic team. Moore, Wilbourn, Stephanie Gurren, Eubanks and Mariah Tesarz are all maintaining a 3.25 grade point average or higher and are at least sophomores.

Eubanks ranked in the conference's top-10 in three statistical categories during the season, including fourth in kills per set (3.1) and fifth in kills (347). She was ninth in hitting percentage (.293). The sophomore was also twice named MSC Player of the Week this year.

For Griffin it is his second time being named the coach of the year by his conference coaching peers. He helped guide the Tigers to the 2012 regular season title with an unblemished record. The fourth-year coach also got the award in 2009.

The tournament, being played at MidAmerican Sports Center in Louisville, kicks off at 9 am Friday. Georgetown plays at 3 pm against eighth-seeded Bluefield College.
