THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech volleyball team fell to No. 24 Miami, 3-0 (22-25, 26-28, 15-25), in O’Keefe Gym on Sunday. The Yellow Jackets fall to 15-7 overall and 6-5 in ACC play, while the Hurricanes improve to 18-3 and 10-1 in league action.

Seniors Monique Mead and Annie Czarnecki led Tech with 12 kills apiece. Jennifer Percy added four kills and Kaleigh Colson dished out 30 assists to go along with four kills and seven digs.

The first game was neck-and-neck with six ties up until the score was knotted 11-11. From that point, Miami went on a 7-3 run to take an 18-14 lead. The Hurricanes kept the pressure on and closed out the opening frame, 25-22, on a kill by Emani Sims.

Tech hit .297 in the first game and Czarnecki led all players with six kills on eight swings (.750).

The Hurricanes stayed in rhythm throughout the first half of the second game, jumping out to an 8-4 advantage. Three straight points by Tech pulled the Yellow Jackets within one, 8-7, but a Miami kill and three consecutive GT attacking errors handed UM the lead again.

Georgia Tech called a timeout, trailing Miami 21-17. Following the break, the Yellow Jackets went to work, putting together a 6-2 run to tie the score 23-23. Georgia Tech had set point, 26-25, courtesy of a kill by Chanell Clark-Bibbs, but Miami scored three-straight thanks to a pair of kills and a block by Alexis Mourning to claim the second game. 

In what proved to be the final set of the match, Miami put up seven blocks and didn’t allow Georgia Tech to score more than three points in a row. Tech trailed the Hurricanes 21-15 late in the game and couldn’t rally back as Miami won the next four points to win the match.

The Yellow Jackets hit the road next weekend to begin a four-match road swing. Georgia Tech faces Maryland on Friday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m., before heading to Boston College for a 12 p.m. match on Sunday.
