Volleyball - Thu, Oct. 31, 2013
When you bring in three power hitters in one class, some might wonder if there are enough passes to go around. For Georgetown College volleyball coach Nick Griffin the answer is yes and the proof is in his junior class.
Allyson Wilbourn, Caraline Maher and Rachel Eubanks, within the past two weeks, have all tallied kill 1,000.
Eubanks got the party started with her fourth kill against University of the Cumberlands. She finished that night with 1,010 and currently sits at 1,020 after having to sit a week with injuries. Wilbourn was next on her sixth kill against St. Catharine. She finished with 1,010 that night and currently has 1,054.
Maher was the final one with her seventh kill against No. 1 University of Texas at Brownsville. She was sitting at 1,001 after that match and now has 1,041.
No. 20 Georgetown has three more regular season games and then postseason.
"This is a special class," Griffin said. "I don't know of many teams that can claim having three hitters of their magnitude and all have them with more than 1,000 kills. We have a powerful offense and at any time any of those three can just go off. It gives us balance and makes us hard to defend."
The Tigers travel to No. 9 Lindsey Wilson tonight for an 8 pm tilt in Columbia, Ky.
