The bittersweet must come every year, but sending the seniors out in style is also becoming a tradition. Georgetown College volleyball tallied a straight set win over Cumberland University on the final regular season match in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym for Allyson Wilbourn, Caraline Maher, Stephanie Gurren, Mariah Tesarz and Ashley Booth. The No. 16 Tigers (24-10, 11-2) won 25-12, 25-19, 25-15 over the Bulldogs (12-17, 1-11).

All-American's Wilbourn and Maher eerily hit the same percentage .538, while tallying eight and nine kills respectively. Gurren had nine of the 30 assists and added three aces. Tesarz had 10 digs and one assist.

Matches such as Tuesday's are lessons to take beyond the court. As Georgetown College volleyball battled Mid-South Conference rival Lindsey Wilson College both teams honored the strength and courage of numerous women in a different fight. It was Block Out Cancer and everyone was decked out in pink to support the survivors and those still taking on cancer.

No. 10 Blue Raiders (27-2, 11-0 MSC) took the win on the court 25-15, 25-20, 25-22. The No. 16 Tigers (23-10, 10-2) showed a lot of heart in the final two sets, rallying multiple times to put themselves in position to extend the match.

Cancer strikes fear in so many with the unknown element of why it happens and the long process to fight it. Bob and Donna Gurren did not bat an eye in March when Donna was diagnosed with cancer, helping to provide strength for their three daughters as the battle began.

"It was never a time to doubt or question things," said Stephanie Gurren, a senior volleyball player at Georgetown College. "Mom's attitude from the onset has been amazing. It has taken a toll on our family, but it has always been, 'Okay this is what the diagnosis is, now let's go beat it.'"

In early October, Donna had surgery and then her daughter displayed courage her mother instilled upon her. Stephanie anxiously awaited the text to say the surgery went well, then stepped on the court against rival Campbellsville University and played one of the best matches of her life.

Georgetown College volleyball bounced back from a pair of setbacks Friday for four-set wins Saturday in the Boneyard Brawl. The No. 17 Tigers (23-9) opened with a 26-24, 25-20, 20-25, 25-23 over No. 14 Davenport (25-7) and followed that with 25-20, 25-23, 18-25, 25-14 over Bryan College (20-8), which is receiving votes.

"This tournament is so tough and I was really proud of the mental toughness we showed today," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "We had Caroline (Ricks) back which was good, but it took a lot mentally to just come back in a difficult tournament such as this."

In order to even be invited to the Boneyard Brawl, teams must have played at the national tournament. All six teams were in the coaches' poll or at least receiving votes.

Georgetown College volleyball came out a little flat early against No. 13 Columbia College in the nightcap of day one in the Boneyard Brawl. The No. 19 Tigers roared to life though and made the Cougars scrap for a 25-14, 25-22, 23-25, 25-16 win.

"We are looking for a rhythm with two of our hitters out," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "You play all season and chemistry is coming along nicely, then the injury bug hits. We have to learn to play through that and this will make us only that much stronger when we are full strength."
