LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Georgia Tech volleyball (8-11, 3-5 ACC) fell to Louisville (13-5, 7-1 ACC) 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.
Head coach Michelle Collier says:
“I felt our middles had good game, but we needed to have contributions and a high-level performance from everyone in order to compete with a team like Louisville on their home court and we just didn’t do that. I am looking forward to a stretch of home matches coming up and being able to regroup and continue to get better.”
How it happened:
It was a slow start for the Jackets as the Cardinals tallied six unanswered points to start the match. Tech called a timeout to try to reverse the momentum but the Jackets were unable to get much going and Louisville took the set at 25-13.
Tech rebounded in the second, taking a swift 5-1 lead with back-to-back kills from senior Sydney Wilson. The Cardinals inched back in it but Tech responded, leading by as many as six at 20-14 with a kill from sophomore Kodie Comby. Louisville came to life and spurred a 10-0 run to overtake the Jackets and take the set at 25-21 for the 2-0 lead.
The two teams came out trading points in the third. Tying all the way to 15-15, Louisville broke out with a 7-2 run to steal the lead and took the set at 25-19.
The Jackets return home to O’Keefe Gymnasium for alumni night, taking on Syracuse in a Friday night matchup at 7 p.m. on Oct. 20.
