ATLANTA – Callie Miller tallied a match-best 15 kills and Chrissy DeMichelis chipped in 11 more to help Georgia Tech (19-9, 11-7 ACC) to a 3-0 sweep (25-10, 25-11, 25-21) of Boston College (7-23, 1-17 ACC) Friday night at O’Keefe Gym.
A return to Atlanta was just what the Yellow Jackets needed after losing their last three road matches, and Tech left no doubt it was out for the win. The Jackets hit a season-best .444, led by Miller’s .789 hitting clip, while three other players converted kills on at least 50 percent of their swings.
DeMichelis logged 11 kills and had just one error on 19 attempts (.526), while Miller was error-less on 19 swings against Boston College.
The Jackets out-played the Eagles on both sides of defense, posting 10 blocks to the Eagles’ one and out-digging Boston College, 38-30.
Tech also posted eight service aces in the match, and the Eagles managed just one service winner against the Yellow Jackets.
Leading by four at 12-8, the Yellow Jackets scored seven unanswered points which culminated with a solo block from Allie Niekamp, and then cruised to the 25-10 victory by outscoring the Eagles, 7-1, to end the set. Tech hit .579 in the frame, while Boston College managed just a .074 hitting percentage.
Campbell notched four kills on four attempts and Miller added four more kills to pace the Jackets to a 25-11 victory in set two. Boston College hit negative for the set, thanks in part to the 13 digs and two blocks the Jackets tallied in the frame.
The Jackets closed out the match by connecting on 41.2 percent of their attempts in the final set. DeMichelis led the way with six kills, and Miller added five for the win.
The Jackets will be back in action Saturday night when they host Maryland at 7 p.m. at O’Keefe Gym. Student-athletes from various Georgia Tech sports teams will be on hand prior to the match to collect toys and donations as part of the 8th-Annual Michael Isenhour Toy Drive to benefit children at a local foster home. Saturday’s match can be heard on WREK Radio (91.1 FM in Atlanta/www.wrek.org) while live stats will be available at Ramblinwreck.com.
