Volleyball - Fri, Oct. 25, 2013
Georgetown College went into a cat fight and came out scratching. The Tigers (24-8) gave No. 1 University of Texas Brownsville (23-0) all it could want in a 15-25, 25-21, 15-25, 17-25 loss.
"That's all I can ask," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "When we held our serve, we were in control and it made all the difference."
In the second set, the Ocelots won six of their first 11 points on serve, but managed just one after that. Georgetown on the other hand dominated with the serve and eventually took the win.
Emily Weber led with 11 kills and Lauren Schneidtmiller and Caraline Maher added eight each. Despite hitting below .100 for the entire match, Georgetown passed well and played solid defense to make Brownsville earn every point.
The top team managed just a .280 hitting percentage for the four sets.
Lindsey Martindale had 19 assists and Stephanie Gurren added 17. Schneidtmiller added 20 digs to lead the Tigers. Courtney Grafton (14) and Kristen Schellhaas (10) also helped the defensive effort.
Georgetown returns to action 11:30 pm against No. 10 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
