Georgetown College volleyball has played nine matches this season, eight have been three setters. The No. 18 Tigers (8-1, 3-1) picked up their seventh straight set win Friday evening against Life University. The Running Eagles (13-6, 1-2) were slow out of the gate and never could catch up from there in the 25-7, 25-12, 25-21 loss.

"We had a strong start, which was very nice to see," said GC coach Christina Coleman. "We've been talking about that lately and wanting to really grab control in set one. I think allowing just seven points speaks volumes to the way this team responded to that call."

It was quickly 14-1 as the home team showed no mercy. Through a couple of time outs, Life showed signs of finding holes to attack but it was too little too late.
