Volleyball - Thu, Oct. 21, 2010
Georgetown College volleyball solidified the top spot in the Mid-South Conference East Division with its second win of the season over archrival Campbellsville University.
The Tigers from each school battled closely in the first game before GC (18-8, 9-1 MSC) pulled ahead for the victory. Georgetown would then go on to control the rest of the match and win in three-straight games, 25-23, 25-20, 25-19.
"That's Georgetown volleyball," GC coach Nick Griffin said. "It was a complete team effort."
The second-year coach said junior setter Liz Goodin had a phenomenal match and freshman Emily Weber was also solid with five blocks. Senior Cathy Frank was unstoppable, while the back line was unshakeable.
This match between the two rivals was critical after Georgetown lost just more than a week ago to West Division foe Shawnee State. Now with just three matches remaining in conference play, the GC Tigers are in the driver's seat to secure the top seed in the East for postseason play. If the standings stay the same, the CU Tigers would be in a bracket with Shawnee and have to play a semifinal match with the new MSC opponent to reach the finals.
Georgetown opens up an action packed week of seven matches on Monday against University of the Cumberlands. It follows up with a doubleheader on Senior Night against St. Catharine. GC wraps up the week with four matches in its own Boneyard Brawl Classic which starts Friday at noon. The Tigers will play Indiana Wesleyan and Walsh on Friday and then Taylor University and Freed-Hardeman on Saturday.
Other teams in the classic include - Campbellsville, Lee, Olivet Nazarene and Savannah College of Art & Design.
