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, 25-23, 25-18.

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 this season."

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.
