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
