ATLANTA – Talisa Kellogg led the Yellow Jackets with 19 kills and Callie Miller added 11 while posting five total blocks to lead Georgia Tech (13-8, 7-4 ACC) to a 3-0 sweep (30-22, 33-31, 30-28) of Boston College (10-12, 4-8 ACC) Saturday night at O’Keefe Gym.
The sweep was the Jackets’ first since earning 3-0 wins against both Temple and Utah Valley at the Nike/Michigan Invitational in mid-September.
Kellogg fell just one kill shy of tying a season high while hitting .500 against the Eagles while Miller hit .450 and posted five digs in addition to her team-leading five total blocks.
Tech hit .271 and had 7.5 total blocks on a night in which Boston College managed just a .185 hitting clip.
The Jackets, behind the blocking of Chrissy DeMichelis and Miller, as well as the excellent defense by Kandell and Gray, used a 4-1 run to take a 13-10 lead in game one and received four kills from Kellogg late in the frame to win, 30-22. Tech held the Eagles to just a .070 hitting percentage while recording 4.5 blocks and 17 digs in the game.
Trailing 21-16 in the second game, Tech mounted a comeback with a 9-3 run to tie the game at 24-24. With the game still knotted, 31-31, Tech took the lead on a service error by Dani Moskitis before Miller put the game away with her ninth kill of the match.
Kellogg posted six kills and no errors on nine attempts to lead Tech to a 30-28 victory in game three to wrap up the match. A block by Miller and Brittany Roderick gave the Yellow Jackets a 29-26 lead after they used a late 4-0 run to take the edge for good. Miller then closed out the match on a crosscourt kill to seal the victory for the Jackets.
