volleyball battled hard against Malone
University Friday night, but came
up just short in the five-game match, 25-14, 22-25, 22-25, 25-18, 14-16.
The Tigers (1-4) hit the road for their second-straight
weekend tournament. Taylor University
and Indiana Wesleyan hosted a crossover tournament that brought in numerous
NAIA national tournament contenders from a season ago.
Despite winning the first game handily, GC dropped the next
two, hard-fought games by just three points each. Coach Nick Griffin's young
squad rallied to level the match at two games apiece and force a fifth.
In a tight decisive game, though, the MU hung on for the
16-14 win to take the match.
Indiana Wesleyan and Indiana Institute of Technology Saturday before opening at
home Wednesday against conference foe St. Catharine.
