Volleyball - Fri, Oct. 25, 2013
Georgetown College volleyball flexed some muscle in the opening game of its Boneyard Brawl. The Tigers, who just fell out of the rankings for the first time in more than a year, handed Viterbo a straight-set loss 25-23, 25-23, 25-23 and had to claw for everything.
"We showed a lot of fight," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "We had control a couple of times and of course I would have preferred to see us step on the gas and put those away. However, you have to expect good teams to make their runs as well. Viterbo did and we didn't lose focus. We stayed with the game plan and came out on top."
It was a bit of a revenge match as the V-Hawks ended Georgetown's season in the quarterfinals of the NAIA Volleyball National Tournament.
Caraline Maher led the Tigers with 12 kills and Kathryn Smith added 10. Stephanie Gurren had 25 kills, while Lindsey Martindale added 15. GC got a balance back court boost as Courtney Grafton had 14 digs, Lauren Schneidtmiller 13 and Kristen Schellhaas 10.
Tigers return to action 7 pm against No. 1 Texas Brownsville.
