On Halloween, the women’s volleyball team took down the Lindsey Wilson College Blue Raiders in three sets. The Tigers (30-3, 14-0) clawed their opponents on the road with the scores 25-14, 25-23, and 25-21.
Coach Griffin was energized by his team performance, and was very pleased at where they are in the standings. The win was especially satisfying because of Lindsey Wilson’s proximity to Georgetown in the standings. “It was good to see us come out in a rivalry road game and assert our control early,” the GC coach said. “We are currently undefeated in league play with just one match left. The Blue Raiders were right behind us in the conference standings, so if we had dropped this match it would have made for an interesting final week of play” (georgetowncollegeathletics.com).
Several GC players contributed impressive numbers in the Tiger’s crucial win. Rachel Eubanks was a big force on offense, and had 13 of the teams 43 kills. Georgetown was able to keep Lindsey Wilson’s offense ineffective with Rebekah Moore and Lindsey Wise as they respectively recorded 13 and 10 digs, lowering their opponents hitting percentage to a mere .179.
The win on Wednesday concluded a sweep of Lindsey Wilson (23-12, 11-3) by Georgetown College. After the loss, the Blue Raiders are now tied with Campbellsville University (23-8, 11-3) for second place in the Mid-South Conference. In the preseason, Georgetown was projected to be third in the conference, behind defending champions Lindsey Wilson and Campbellsville. And despite their rocky start, the GC volleyball squad has really come together this season; a season in which they had a 25 game winning streak.
Georgetown College is scheduled to play their final regular season game against the Tigers of Campbellsville on Nov. 6th, which is senior night. Post season play starts Nov. 9th in Louisville.
