Caraline Maher picks up her first Mid-South Conference Player of the Week honor for the 2014 season. The senior hitter recorded two matches of above .500 hitting percentage, including blistering the floor with a .769 average against University of Pikeville.
This is the sixth weekly honor of her career. She received the weekly award once in 2011 and 2012, and three times this past season.
Georgetown College volleyball improved to 8-3 and 3-0 in the Mid-South Conference with a straight-set win over University of Pikeville. The road match was a quick 25-13, 25-23, 25-15 victory.
Caraline Maher hit a phenomenal .769 with 11 kills on 13 swings and just one error. Allyson Wilbourn was the next highest with eight kills on 11 swings for a .636 hitting percentage. As a team the Tigers had 42 kills and a .346 hitting percentage.
Coming into the season, Mid-South Conference volleyball coaches tabbed St. Catharine as the third best team in the league and the team to watch. Through the first few weeks of the season that is proving to be a very true statement. Georgetown College needed a five-set thriller to take what could be a huge match down the road, 27-25, 18-25, 25-21, 19-25, 15-11.
"St. Catharine is a scrappy team, a point is never over and a set never done," said GC volleyball coach Nick Griffin. "We showed a lot of heart and fire tonight as well. There were a couple of times in a match like that we could have folded up, but we kept plugging away and got the victory."
The toughest point might have been in the second set. After the No. 13 Tigers (7-3, 2-0) rallied for a first-set win, they tore out in the second set up 11-3. SCC (11-4, 1-1 MSC) scored 22 of the final 26 points for a huge set to level the match.
Sometimes the toughest thing to do is play that final match of a long weekend. Georgetown College volleyball has flourished in those spots this season. It picked up win one in straight sets after a long weekend a week ago. Then Saturday it did the same in a 25-11, 25-11, 25-15 win over Marian University to finish the Rumpke Invitational.
The No. 11 Tigers (6-3) have six straight wins, four of them in three set fashion. Lauren Schneidtmiller continued to led from a hitting stand point with nine kills, while Caraline Maher added eight.
Georgetown College volleyball fought off dropping the second set to Asbury and pick up another win in the Rumpke Invitational. The No. 11 Tigers (5-3) took care of the Eagles, who are receiving votes, 25-20, 24-26, 25-23, 25-20.
The back breaking set came in the third when Georgetown rallied from a seven point deficit (19-12) to win 25-23.
"That was a huge boost, coming back in such a huge fashion and erasing the deficit," said GC coach Nick Griffin.
