Volleyball - Tue, Sep. 20, 2011
Georgetown College's volleyball team suffered a second
home conference loss Tuesday this time at the hands of archrival Campbellsville
University. The CU Tigers (6-6, 2-2 Mid-South Conference) used a 27-25 third
game win to snag a 2-1 lead in games and then weathered GC's flurry of attack
to win in five, 20-25, 25-19, 27-25, 9-25, 15-11.
Georgetown (7-8, 2-2) was coming off a loss to Lindsey
Wilson Thursday in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym, a place it rarely losses and even
rarer to conference opponents.
Game one and two were back and forth games early with
Georgetown pushing ahead in the first for the win and CU doing the same in the
GC got behind 19-10 in game three before clawing back
into it to trail 20-19 late. CU regained composer coming out of a timeout and
to push back out, 23-19. GC Tiger coach Nick Griffin then used a time out to
refocus his team.
Georgetown came out to get serve back and Rebekah Moore
served up a tie 23-23 off an Allyson Wilbourn tip kill. CU got serve back, but
immediately sided out for a 24 all game. Lindsey Wise put Georgetown back in
front 25-24, but it was all Campbellsville from there. CU sided out and served
two points for the 27-25 win and match lead.
GC came out blazing in game four, leaping out to a 10-1
advantage and never looking back. CU managed just two points off serve in that
game as Georgetown leveled the match and forced a decisive game five.
Both teams went back and forth in the final game and were
knotted at 11 with Georgetown serving. What appeared to be a ball that sailed
well out of bounds to give GC the lead, was called touched by a Georgetown
player and gave CU the advantage. Campbellsville never relinquished it again,
reeling off three straight points for the victory.
Freshmen Wilbourn and Caraline Maher led with 17 and 11
kills respectively. Liz Goodin added 46 assists and Lindsey Wise led five
teammates in double-digit digs with 31. For CU Shannon Cahill (13) and Monica
Chernichan (11) led in kills. Lilian DaSilva had 22 assists and Aurdrey Sanders
had 34 assists.
Georgetown returns to action 7 pm Thursday hosting
University of Rio Grande.
