Volleyball - Sun, Sep. 1, 2013
Hardest thing to do in sports sometimes is rebound from a difficult loss. It was something Tiger volleyball needed to do Saturday morning. After fighting a fierce match against No. 2 Columbia College, Georgetown needed to put the five-setter behind it and focus on Hastings.
"We had to dig deep," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "The Broncos are a tough team, but we rose to the occasion and took care of business. Sometimes that is what you have to do."
The No. 7 Tigers needed all five sets Saturday morning against Hastings, but pulled out the win 25-23, 25-18, 18-25, 19-25, 21-19. They maintained that focus and rolled in straight sets for the first time this season over Wiley College, 25-21, 25-22, 25-22.
Allyson Wilbourn finished the weekend with 53 kills on 117 attempts to be hitting .316. Corri Muha leads the team, hitting .426 with 31 kills on 61 attempts. Lindsey Martindale and Stephanie Gurren continue to thrive in the two setter rotation, tallying 98 and 71 assists respectively.
Georgetown opens a home stand, seven of the next eight matches in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym, Tuesday against Mid-South Conference foe Bluefield College.
The team will play 24 hours later against MSC's University of Pikeville before hosting one of its two tournaments in the Rumpke Invitational on Friday and Saturday.
