Sioux City, Ia. - The Georgetown College Tigers held on to win their second match of the NAIA National Championship, defeating Indiana Tech 3-2 after being down 2-0 after the first two games of the match.

Indiana Tech was ready after dropping their first match of the tournament Tuesday to California Baptist and won the first two games 25-23 and 25-21 before the Tigers got into their groove. Georgetown hit a 35.3 percentage in third game and won it 25-19. From there it was nip and tuck the whole way before Georgetown took the fourth game 29-27 and then the tiebreaker with a score of 16-14.

"Everybody is good at this point," said head coach Jeff Hulsmeyer. "They were a really good defensive team and we played a faster paced game but we made too may errors in the first two games. Finally we started to play well after the first couple of games so it was a matter of us getting in our offensive system."

Wednesday's win guarantees No. 6 Georgetown's advancement to Friday's single-elimination round. Next up in the pool play portion of the tournament is No. 7 California Baptist. The match is set for noon on Thursday.
