Nothing comes easy in Mid-South Conference play, but Georgetown College volleyball gutted out another three-set victory to improve to 14-2 and 9-2 in the MSC. The No. 17 Tigers defeated visiting University of the Cumberlands 25-18, 25-21, 25-18.

Jenny Howell led the attack with a match-high 14 kills while nearly hitting .400. The senior also had 14 digs.

Gracen Howard did a lot in the first two sets to help GC get rolling. The senior twice served long rallies that force UC to burn its only two timeouts of the first set. Then she also had a nice service game that changed the direction of set two and again force Cumberlands to use a timeout. She finished with one ace and six digs with just one service error in 15 attempts.

Pre-match, Ashton Meckle had a feeling. The sophomore was wise to yield to it and take extra practice on her serves. Despite losing the first set 25-21, it was a huge rally on Meckle's serve that swung the match against Cumberland University into Georgetown College volleyball's favor. The Tigers clawed back for a 21-25, 25-8, 25-19, 25-16 win to improve to 11-2 on the season and 6-2 in the Mid-South Conference.

CU had all the good vibes flowing early, scoring five unanswered to start set one and take 12-2 and 24-10 leads. However, Caroline Ricks' fifth kill of the set put it all in motion. Meckle stepped behind the line and put her extra serves to good use.

"I had a feeling that it would be important tonight," Meckle said. "It is something in every match for us and I just felt it could be my serve. I was not going in with focus, focus on my toss, on my motion. I was lacking a plan.

"So I needed those few extra minutes of work with (assistant) coach (Felicia) Pace to really get things right."

Georgetown College volleyball dropped set one to a very scrappy University of Pikeville team. However, it was all No. 18 Tigers (10-1, 5-1) from there. The team's second match in less than 24 hours resulted in a 18-25, 25-14, 25-16, 25-11 win behind big performances from Caroline Ricks, Jenny Howell, Kassidy Rauh and Lexie Gatewood.

UPike (5-13, 0-5) came out with a mission – do not let a ball drop. The Bears did just that in set one, keeping it all in play and forcing Georgetown to make errors. The momentum built as the visitors broke 17 ties and pushed ahead by seven for the final result.
