Volleyball - Fri, Nov. 11, 2016

Georgetown College volleyball punched a ticket to the 2016 Mid-South Conference tournament finals with a straight set win over Campbellsville University. The No. 11 Tigers (29-6) started and ended strong, but had to rally several times in the middle for a 25-10, 25-22, 25-16 victory.

"Our focus dipped a bit in the second set and we showed resilience to hold off a very good Campbellsville team from leveling the match," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "They took a late two-point lead, but we answered with four straight points. CU came right back for its final lead at 22-21."

Georgetown scored all four of the final points which led to a solid third set. The GC Tigers opened a 5-2 lead and never looked back.

This sets up a rubber-match game between Lindsey Wilson College and Georgetown. The two won on their respective home courts this season and have been ranked among the top 12 teams for most of the year.

"It is always a battle and we best bring our A game tomorrow if we want to take back the championship," Griffin said.

Jenny Howell and Caroline Ricks led the team in kills with 11 and 10 respectively. Ashlee Howe had the hot hand with six kills on 12 swings and just one error for a .417 hitting percentage.

Sarah Bell dished out 31 assists, while Courtney Grafton, 17, and Gracen Howard, 13, led in digs.

The championship match is set for 3 pm EST in Bowling Green, Ky.
