Georgetown College's volleyball team wrapped up another
conference showdown in three straight games Tuesday against University of
Virginia College at Wise.
The Tigers (11-9, 6-2 Mid-South Conference) have won 10
of their 11 matches in a clean sweep. GC trailed in the first game late, but
rolled following a 19-19 tie. The team went on for a 25-21, 25-14, 25-15 win in
Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
Now the Tigers hit the road for three Top 10 games in the
Embry-Riddle Tournament in Florida.
"We are playing well and now we get a chance to take some
of the pressure off ourselves and just focus on playing volleyball," said
Georgetown coach Nick Griffin. "We want to win and have played so well against
ranked opponents this year and there is no pressure on us."
Senior Alyssa Elmore stepped up with 11 kills against the
Cavaliers, while Rachel Eubanks had seven and Caitlyn Kogge and Kelsey Luckett
each had six.
The tandem of setters of Liz Goodin and Stephanie Gurren
had 24 and 12 assists each to lead the Tigers. Lindsey Wise added 11 digs to
lead the defensive side for Georgetown.
