Georgetown College and Lindsey Wilson College had a
volleyball battle of Mid-South Conference East divisional opponents. LWC (13-1,

at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym Thursday evening.
The Tigers (7-7, 2-1 MSC) came out on fire in game two,
but had to battle back in three and four, coming up just short in each. GC
trailed 22-14 in the third when Nick Griffin took his second time out. The team
came out and pulled within 22-18, forcing the Blue Raiders into a time out.
The teams traded side outs before LWC pulled off the
25-22 win. Game four was back and forth when Lindsey grabbed a small advantage
late, 22-19. The Tigers came back and eventually tied it at 23 with the serve.
The Blue Raiders got the side out and the last rally
point for the match just hit inside the service line.
Rachel Eubanks led the match with 15 kills, while
teammate Allyson Wilbourn had 14. LWC's Kirsten King and Taylor Hayne had 14
kills each. GC's Liz Goodin had 49 assists, while Lindsey's Andrea Taylor had
