Volleyball - Sat, Sep. 10, 2011
Georgetown College volleyball picked up a huge five-game
win Saturday morning and then followed it with a fourth, straight-game-victory
of the week to wrap up the Rumpke Invitational at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. GC
beat Shorter University, 17-25, 27-24, 25-23, 23-25, 15-13, and Union College, 25-8,
In match one, Allyson Wilbourn (14) and Rachel Eubanks
(11) accounted for almost 50 percent of the teams' kills. Liz Goodin had 44
assists and 21 digs.
"This was a great win for the team," said GC coach Nick
Griffin. "Shorter does not get the credit for how good of a team they are. Offensively
and defensively we were clicking. We didn't let the little things get us down
and take us out of the match as we were doing in some of the earlier matches
After losing game one, Georgetown (6-6) hopped out early
in game two. The Lady Hawks (8-2) fought back to force extra points, but even
facing a game-point did not rattle the Tigers. They stayed in their game plan
and finished it out. It was a close game three, 25-23, before dropping game
four with the opposite score.
GC took the early edge in the decisive-game five, 10-7.
SU rallied back for an 11-11 tally. Georgetown surged ahead for a 14-12
match-point lead, but the Lady Hawks came out of a timeout to save one match
point. Wilbourn ended it all though, with her 14th kill and the Tiger win.
Georgetown rolled in the second match of the day as
Wilbourn and Eubanks had 22 of the 39 kills. Goodin had 32 assists and 12 digs.
Goodin and Wilbourn earned all-tournament honors for the
Tigers. Also making the team was: Montreat's Hannah Scholz, Shorter's Jordan
Corder and Jasmine Crook, Grace's Erica Verrett and Stephanie Lawson,
Concordia's Amanda Kisker and Amanda Abbott, and Union's Vietoria Oliveria.
