Volleyball - Fri, Oct. 18, 2013

Georgetown College volleyball fought hard, but fell for the first time ever to University of the Cumberlands Thursday in Williamsburg. The Patriots (13-7, 6-6 Mid-South Conference) won the odd sets to hand No. 24 Tigers (22-7, 11-2) a 25-21, 13-25, 25-22, 18-25, 15-9 defeat.

This is the first conference loss to a team other than Lindsey Wilson since the 2011 season. Georgetown was 33-0 all-time against UC and as far back as 2006 only dropped one set every.

"Have to hand it to Cumberlands. They are a scrappy bunch, and when you are giving points away it is hard to beat a team like that," said GC coach Nick Griffin.

Allyson Wilbourn led the attack with 19 kills. Three other Tigers tallied double digit kills – Rachel Eubanks (14), Caraline Maher (12) and Emily Weber (10).

Patriots countered that with stiff defense that included 16 blocks.

Georgetown returns to action 7 pm Monday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym where seniors Weber and Kathryn Smith will be honored as the final regular season home game outside of the Boneyard Brawl.
