Volleyball - Fri, Sep. 15, 2017

Georgetown College volleyball played its first non-three set match of the season and came out victorious, 22-25, 25-20, 25-17, 25-21 against NCAA Division II Kentucky State University.

The No. 18 Tigers (6-1) traveled to Frankfort and had a slow start before taking care of business. Caroline Ricks led the charge with 14 kills, while three other teammates tallied in the double digits as well – Jenny Howell (13), Jessica Tapp (12) and Ashton Meckle (11). Kassidy Rauh dished out 47 assists, a new career high at GC.

After trailing 5-1 in set one to the Thorobreds, GC rallied and a Meckle kill tied it 13 all. The teams traded points and finally the visitors pushed ahead for a 22-20 advantage. KSU clawed back for the final five points of the set.

However, Madison Mudd got Georgetown off to a good start in set two. The sophomore served the visitors to a 3-0 lead. Eventually the Tigers opened a five-point lead and kept KSU at bay.

Set three was nip and tuck early with the Thorobreds taking an 11-9 led. From that point on it was all Georgetown. The Tigers scored 16 of the final 22 points for the largest set victory of the match.

The Tigers rallied from a 16-14 deficit in set four to finish off the match and win its first non-three set match of the season. The team is back in action 7 pm Tuesday at University of the Cumberlands.
