The Georgia Tech volleyball team (4-5) lost its second match of the day, falling to ETSU 3-2 (25-17, 14-25, 23-25, 25-15, 10-15) on Saturday at the Lipscomb Invite at Allen Arena.
“We had two tough matches today,” head coach Michelle Collier said. “Utah is a very physical team and ETSU executed really well at key moments. We need to produce more offensively as a team to balance our offense in order to have a better chance of staying in matches. It has been a challenging three weeks and we are looking forward to being home next weekend.”
Sophomore Teegan Van Gunst led the Yellow Jackets with 22 kills and recorded four blocks. Sophomore Annika Van Gunst recorded 12 kills while senior Courtney Felinski added nine kills. Freshman Sydney Wilson had a team-high nine blocks.
ETSU had three players record double-digit kills and were led by Bethany Gesell, who recorded 16 kills.
The Jackets came out strong against ETSU, recording a 25-17 win in set one. Set two belonged to ETSU, 25-14, and the third set was a battle, with the Buccaneers winning, 25-23.
Georgia Tech forced a fifth set thanks to a 25-15 victory in the fourth frame. ETSU held on to its early lead in the fifth set to clinch the match with a 15-10 win.
