PITTSBURGH, Pa. – The Georgia Tech volleyball team (6-8, 0-2 ACC) fell in three sets (24-26, 21-25, 14-25) at ACC newcomer Pittsburgh (10-5, 2-0) Sunday at Fitzgerald Fieldhouse. Tech senior Jennifer Percy led all players with 15 kills, but the Jackets couldn’t capture their first ACC win of the season.

The last time Tech opened league play 0-2 came in 2011 when Georgia Tech was swept by Clemson and Duke. Pitt’s win evens the all-time series 1-1.

The Jackets and Panthers went toe-to-toe in the opening set before Pitt went in front 20-16 for its largest lead of the game. A pair of kills from Percy and one from Quinn Evans pulled Tech within one, and a Chanell Clark-Bibbs service ace tied it 20-20. Tech didn’t make it easy for Pitt, who had to fight for set-point twice, before winning 26-24.

After trailing Pitt to start the second set, Tech pulled together a three-point rally on kills by Percy and Evans along with the blocking efforts of Evans and Callie Bivings to give Tech a 12-9 lead. Pitt went to work and fought back on a five-point run to take an 18-15 lead. The Panthers, who lead the ACC in service aces, gained set-point on an ace and won the set on a Georgia Tech serving error, 25-21.

Georgia Tech could not build momentum in the third set as the Panthers maintained control. Back-to-back streaks of three then six points put Pitt ahead 21-11. The Panthers put the set away, 25-14, on a kill by Jessica Wynn.

The Jackets return to action Friday at home against No. 17 Florida State, followed by a Saturday match against Miami. Both contests are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
