CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Georgia Tech volleyball team (11-4, 2-1 ACC) suffered its first ACC loss of the season, 3-1, at Miami (8-5, 1-2) Friday night at the Knight Complex.

How it Happened
Georgia Tech held an early lead, 10-6, but the Hurricanes worked back to tie it 17-17. From there, Miami scored four quick points to take a 21-17 lead. The Yellow Jackets fought back to knot it, 24-24, but the Hurricanes prevailed to win the opening frame, 27-25.

The Yellow Jackets hit their stride in game two and never lost the lead. Up 15-12, Georgia Tech went on a 10-5 run to win game two, 25-17. Miami jumped out to an early lead in game three, 10-6, and the Jackets never recovered. Miami went up 2-1 in the match on a 25-18 set-three victory.

In game four, Georgia Tech had the lead 22-20, but the Hurricanes scored three-straight to go up 23-22. Miami scored the remaining two points to capture the set and match.

I feel like we executed really well defensively against them,” head coach Michelle Collier said. “We contained their offense and their middles didn’t get a lot of balls. We just didn’t side out enough. We got stuck in rotations where they ran four or five points, and we had to catch up. We knew that we were very close and we needed a little better execution offensively.

“We have to get ready for Florida State, which is another really good team. It’s going to be the same thing; we need to be able to side out and match offensively what they’re doing so that we can stay in the game.”

Quick Hits
– Georgia Tech out-blocked Miami 13 to nine.
– Teegan Van Gunst tallied her ninth double-double of the season with a team-best 14 kills and 11 digs
– Three Yellow Jackets in double digit digs, led by London Ackermann’s 20 digs. Annika Van Gunst added 19 digs and Teegan Van Gunst had 11.
– Ashley Askin was one kill away (10) from matching her career-best and Sydney Wilson added nine kills.
