The Georgetown College volleyball team has been busy beating down their opponents this season. In fact, there has only been one team that could give GC a loss in the regular season thus far. Right now, the team is in an intense stretch of games, during which they’ve played eight matches in nine days. But this hasn’t stopped their victorious ways, which continued against Campbellsville University.
This past Thursday, the Lady Tigers took down Campbellsville at home, winning all of their sets. The seemingly unstoppable No. 7 ranked GC squad won all three sets by the scores of 25-21, 25-23 and 25-21. With the win, the Tigers improved their record to 11-1 overall and a perfect 4-0 in the Mid-South Conference.
Although GC came out victorious, neither team hit particularly well. Caraline Maher and Rachel Eucbanks led the team in hitting percentage with .467 and .400 respectively. Several Georgetown players had double digit digs; Courtney Grafton managed 13 digs while Kristen Schellhaas recorded 18. Several others were able to record numerous assists. Lindsey Martindale had 14 assists while her teammate Stephanie Gurren managed to have 13.
As is to be expected, Georgetown coach Nick Griffin was glad that his team took care of business, even though they had many matches in a short amount of time. “We took care of business. That is what you have to do in weeks like this. We stayed focused and won all our matches. Now we have a few days off to breathe, and then we bring in another top conference team in Lindsey Wilson next week” (georgetowncollegeathletics.com).
Georgetown looks to keep up their winning ways as the month of September is quickly ending. On Friday, Sept. 20, after facing the Blue Raiders of Lindsey Wilson College, the GC Tigers hope to continue dominating their opponents against Cornerstone University in Indiana. The game starts at 4 p.m.
