Volleyball - Tue, Sep. 27, 2011
In the past two weeks, Georgetown College volleyball has
struggled at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. In four matches, the Tigers (9-9, 4-2
Mid-South Conference) have dropped three - all of which went the full five
games. The team did not play around Monday night on the road, though. GC took
care of league business with a straight-game win over University of Pikeville,
25-15, 25-18, 25-13.
Allyson Wilbourn led the attack, almost doubling her
closet teammate, with 12 kills. Liz Goodin chipped in with seven, while
Caralina Maher had six. Wilbourn broke out of her hitting slump in a big way at
Pikeville. The freshman had just one hitting error and just 16 total kill
attempts for a .688 hitting percentage Monday.
Goodin hit .700 on 10 attempts and no errors, while
Kathryn Smith made the most of her swings - three kills on four attempts for
.750. Maher had two errors and eight attempts for .500. The Tigers collectively
hit .386 in the win. In the four previous games, GC managed just a .194 hitting
Goodin added 39 assists to lead the team, while Stephanie
Gurren served up three of the Tigers six aces. Libero Lindsey Wise had 18 digs,
Goodin added six and Rebekah Moore had four.
GC returns to Davis-Reid Alumni Gym for a showdown with
defending MSC Tournament champions Shawnee State 7 pm Friday.
