Volleyball - Wed, Nov. 30, 2016

Georgetown College volleyball had four match points for a three-set sweep of College of Coastal Georgia. The Mariners dug in, though, erased all four, won set three and then finished the comeback in a 16-25, 22-25, 31-29, 25-20, 15-12 win Wednesday in Sioux City, Iowa. The loss all but ends the Tigers season. Eastern Oregon sits at 2-0 in Pool F, while Montana Tech and Coastal Georgia are both at 1-1. The latter two meet tomorrow in the last of round robin action and whichever wins will join No. 6 EOU in the round of 16 Friday.

The No. 11 Tigers (29-9) seemed to have it well in hand with a much improved kill to error ratio. However, in the third set the Mariners (30-9) found the push to keep fighting. Set four was a run away and once CG wrangled control in the decisive set five it was all over.

Coastal Georgia made good on its one match point.

Jenny Howell led the way, getting set 50 times and putting down 23 kills with just five errors. Ashlee Howe also had a big offensive role – 31 sets, 16 kills and just three errors.

Sarah Bell set a new career-high in five set matches with 57 assists, still one behind her total high set in a four set victory earlier this year over Lindsey Wilson College. She tallied her second double-double of the tournament with 12 digs as well.

Courtney Grafton led with 24 digs. Gracen Howard had 16. Howell chipped in with 15 and Maddie Kunkel had 11.

Georgetown has its final match of the year 4 pm Thursday against EOU.
