Georgetown College volleyball starts its bid for a national title at 6:45 pm Tuesday against No. 12 Indiana University East. The No. 13 Tigers (34-4) are making their 15th appearance in the NAIA National Tournament and first since 2009 when they were runners up.
The Red Wolves (44-3) enter the tournament behind a senior laden bunch, including setter Lauren Crump. She was the Kentucky Intercollegiate Player of the Year.
"It is always interesting once you get to Sioux City (Iowa, host site of the national tournament)," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "Anything can happen and we just have to take each match as it comes."
Griffin, assistant Amy Barmore, and seniors Lindsey Wise and Rebekah Moore know how important every match is. All were a part of the 2009 team, which lost its second match in pool-play before rebounding for four straight wins in a run to the finals.
"Each match is the most important match we have to date," Griffin said, "starting with IU East. They are right ahead of us in the standings, and we know how tough they are."
The two teams met in the 2011 Boneyard Brawl. Coach Charlie Brown and the Red Wolves needed five sets before pulling out the win in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
The Tigers follow that up with a 6:45 pm Wednesday showdown with No. 1 Concordia and wraps up pool-play at 6:45 pm Thursday against Morningside.
