CLEMSON, S.C. – The Georgia Tech volleyball team (7-10, 1-4 ACC) fell in straight sets (18-25, 16-25, 17-25) to the Clemson Tigers (8-8, 2-3) Wednesday at Jervey Gym.

Senior Jennifer Percy led the Jackets with 11 kills and sophomore Chanell Clark-Bibbs added six kills. Freshmen Annika Van Gunst and London Ackermann led Tech’s back row with 11 and seven digs, respectively.

The opening set was a back-and forth battle as the teams traded the lead four times with 15 tied scores. Neither team led by more than three points until the Tigers created some momentum, breaking the set open with a seven-point run to make the score 24-17 and capturing the game, 25-18.

The Tigers built off the first set with a six-point rally in the second frame to take an 11-3 advantage. The Jackets were not able to establish a rhythm, eventually falling 25-16.

Georgia Tech came out of the break and jumped out to a 4-0 lead in game three. Clemson recovered with four points of its own and tacked on seven-straight behind the serving of Kristin Faust to go up 11-6. The Jackets worked to close the gap to three points, 17-14, thanks to a pair of kills by Percy, but Clemson held on to the lead and won 25-17.

The Jackets are back in action Saturday when they play Notre Dame for the first time in the ACC. Tech hosts the Fighting Irish at 7 p.m. on ESPN3.
