Freshman Talisa Kellogg matched a career high with 18 kills and hit .405 as the Georgia Tech volleyball team swept Boston College, 3-0 (30-23, 30-16, 30-16) Saturday night. With the win the Yellow Jackets have now won five straight matches, improving to 9-6, 5-1 ACC while the Eagles fall to 6-10, 1-6 ACC.
“This was a great weekend for Georgia Tech volleyball,” said head coach Bond Shymansky. “After getting a great come from behind win last night against Maryland playing great defense, our offense was the story in our wins today against Georgia State and Boston College. Talisa was dominating in the match tonight and did a fantastic job of hitting with efficiency. Lindsey Laband directed a great offense and our hitters did a good job of keeping the ball in play and cutting down on their errors. We have a huge match next week against North Carolina and hopefully we’ll carry some of this momentum with us into that match.”
Just like earlier in the day, Tech’s offense was the story of the match, hitting a season-high .370 on the night. In addition to Kellogg, Ulrike Stegemann posted 11 kills and hit .524 while Laura DeMichelis added eight kills and hit .312 and Callie Miller chipped in six kills and hit .364. Lindsey Laband ran the offense, posting 36 assists and three kills in the match.
At the net, Tech was dominating, recording 14 total team blocks. Kaminskas led the way with eight total blocks while Miller, Stegemann and Kellogg each added four.
The Eagles were led by Morgan Woodcock who had nine kills and hit .286 in the match.
The Yellow Jackets will return to action Friday when they travel to take on North Carolina (11-6, 6-1 ACC) in Chapel Hill at 6 p.m.
