Conference tournament title since 2009. Before 2010, no other MSC team had won
the tournament. GC warded off a five-set threat in the semifinals Saturday at
MidAmerican Sports Center in Louisville, but could not comeback from a 2-0 set
deficit in the finals.
"I was proud of the way we battled against Campbellsville," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "Then we had to almost immediately turn around and play a very hot Lindsey Wilson team."
The Tigers handed rival Campbellsville University (25-10)
the 20-25, 25-23, 21-25, 25-13, 15-11 defeat before falling to defending MSC
tournament champion Lindsey Wilson College 29-27, 25-19, 23-25, 28-26.
