Georgetown College’s volleyball team has been playing as good as anybody could have hoped for. Over the weekend, they were able to win all of their games and extended their winning streak to a ridiculous 24 games. The winning streak is Coach Nick Griffin’s longest winning streak (in his first season he had a streak that lasted 21 games).

Starting off the weekend success early on Thursday night, the Tigers came up with a huge win against NCAA Division II opponent Kentucky State University. Georgetown shut down KSU in a quick three sets with the scores of 25-4, 25-10 and 25-14.

In a night full of record breaking, Lindsey Wise recorded her 1,000th dig as a Georgetown College Tiger. Another Tiger, Caraline Maher, broke her hitting percentage record, with an impressive 11 kills in 12 attempts.

On Saturday, the girls of the GC volleyball team were able to extend their winning streak in the Mid-South Conference. The Tigers, now ranked No. 11 in the NAIA standings, beat Bluefield College and Virginia College easily in three sets. In fact, in only one of the games did GC opponents score over 16 points.

The win was definitely a whole team effort. Lindsey Martindale came up with 41 assists in the two matches, Stephanie Gurren recorded 26, Rebekah Moore with 24 and Lindsey Wise had 16. There were also three Tigers with at least 11 kills, Caraline Maher, Allyson Willbourn and Rachel Eubanks. Georgetown plans on extending their winning against University of the Cumberlands on Oct. 22.
