Volleyball - Sat, Sep. 28, 2013
Georgetown College volleyball continued the week with another straight-set, road win. The No. 18 Tigers made quick work of Shawnee State University, 25-13, 25-17, 25-16.
In the match, the Tigers (16-4, 7-1 Mid-South Conference) blistered out of the gates with .800 attack percentage. Caraline Maher continued her fabulous week, following up the performance at Rio with nine kills and a .643 attacking percent over three sets.
Rachel Eubanks broke out of her funk with a team-leading 11 kills on 16 swings and a .535 attack percentage. Georgetown had 13 of its 39 kills in set one, but showed balance with 12 in set two and a match-high 14 in set three.
The defense once again held its opponent a percentage in the 100s - .102. The team tallied 14 blocks, led by Ashlee Howe's six – two solo.
"That is an area of focus for us," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "We know we have the hitters and the offensive power, but we want to thwart teams by holding their offense to a low attacking percentage. In our past two matches we have done that and been successful."
Kristen Schellhaas led with 18 digs and Lindsey Martindale and Stephanie Gurren orchestrated the offense with 17 and 10 assists respectively.
Tigers return to action 7 pm Tuesday hosting University of the Cumberlands.
